Demanding a criminal case, the BJP today termed as hurtful the burning of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's effigy instead of Ravana's on Dasehra in various parts of the state.

BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh said it was a religious festival celebrated across the country and outside. It was condemnable that the Punjab Government made no effort to prevent the act of burning PM's effigies, he said.

"Any tinkering with the festival, especially with effigies of Ravana, amounts to hurting religious sentiments. The Congress seemed to be encouraging the act as its government did not take action to prevent such an incident," Chugh said.

The BJP chief was reacting to several incidents of burning effigies bearing PM's photo to protest the Central farm laws. Chugh said such a treatment given to the Prime Minister of a country was highly condemnable.
