The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday reserved its judgment on a petition seeking direction for registering a case against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for an alleged objectionable speech during an election campaign in Rajasthan’s Alwar in 2018.  

Hearing a petition filed by Naval Kishor Sharma of Mau district, the order was reserved by Justice Samit Gopal.  

According to the petitioner, the UP chief minister delivered a speech during the election campaign in the Alwar district of Rajasthan on November 23, 2018, which according to the petitioner had hurt his religious sentiments.  

Earlier, the petitioner had filed a complaint in this connection before the district court of Mau, which was rejected.  Then he filed a revision petition before a higher court, which too was dismissed on the ground of territorial jurisdiction.
