Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy has jumped to the  defence of businessman Ravi Sreenivasan, who was arrested on Tuesday for his tweets about Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s son Karti. Sreenivasan was subsequently releasd on bail.

Swamy was also quoted as saying by the newspaper that Sreenivasan’s case was a strong one and no action should have been taken against him under Section 66 (1) of the IT Act.

“Sreenivasan is protected by Article 19 of the Indian Constitution which grants him the right to freedom of speech and expression, of course with reasonable restrictions. He has not violated this section,” Swamy said.

Sreenivasan had allegedly posted messages on Twitter stating that Karti Chidambaram had amassed wealth more than that of Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Sreenivasan, the owner of a plastic packaging material factory, was arrested by the local crime branch wing of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) based on a recent complaint filed by Karti Chidambaram. The complaint said that the industrialist had posted “offensive” messages against Karthi on three occasions since last year on Twitter.

Sreenivasan was arrested under Section 66 (1) of the Information Technology Act, which ironically pertains to hacking and not to defamation.

He was produced before a magistrate by the police who sought 15 days remand for Sreenivasan. However, the court granted bail to Ravi, since the offence was bailable.

    This shows the extent to which this corrupt Govt of Sonia can go.It is a known fact the Karti has amassed enormous wealth by land grabbing,share in various deals some with Vadra,his mother making money from shares and both mother and son grabbed more than 12 acres of land from a village fishermen during the time of Karunanidhi and planned to build a five start hotel complex with all facilities in the garb of promoting tourism and even gave clearance by Karunanidhi but the project never took place as by that time many scams have stated coming.Chidambaram by using his influence tried this method of arresting for using a twitte by small time businessman for revealing a fact.Sheer nonsesnse.Karti shuld have gone to the court and filed a defamation case.Even in this case he never filed a complaint to the Pudusserry police directly but called the IG and told him to arrest the tweeter.What a shame that Chidambaram and his family are trying to lay with the ‘mango people’ or ‘aam aadmi’?When this issue was taken up by some channels today the tweeter Ravi said that he tweeted only 107 in the past 2 years and have the followeing of of only 12 out of which 5 are his relatives.However after this arrest and subsequent bail by the Magistrate and exposure came in the media his rating has gone up and now he has as many as 2000 followers.A stupid move by Kartik on a matter which could have simply been ignored or gone to the court and instead making a mockery of himself in approaching the police to get the tweeter arrested.That shows the brain working of Karti being arrogant that since his father holds a very high post in the Govt he can do whatever he likes forgetting the fact his father’s number of days in the Govt are coming to an end.A matter which would not have come to light in such a big way now has become a national talk.Previously Kabil Sibal also tried to block Facebook .Google for some exposure AICC website which posted photos of Sonia in obscene way by some hackers the site was closed and Google was threatened of action.Congressleaders can’t tolerate their nefarious activities come to light and try to block the sites and social net working.Moe hey do more troubes will come to them in future.Kartik’s gimmick in this absolutely ridiculous.
