Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) general secretary Manoj Panara Monday filed a complaint against ‘right-wing’ activist Kajal Shingala alias Kajal Hindusthani for allegedly hurting sentiments of Patidar women in Morbi.

According to the complaint filed at the ‘A’ Division police station of Morbi, Shingala made the alleged remarks at a gathering organised by Shree Gadhakada Patel Mitramandal in Surat on June 6, 2023. Panara said he came across a video of Shingala’s purported speech in which she allegedly said that some “college girls had boyfriends from other faiths and that they had stolen money to purchase cars for their boyfriends”.
