Rajasthan Congress MLA Johari Lal Meena Calls Allegations of Rape Against His Son ‘Fake and Baseless’
Rajasthan Congress MLA Johari Lal Meena said, "This is a new conspiracy to defame my image. Such complaints are coming to the fore because of the forthcoming elections."
Alwar: Rajasthan Congress MLA Johari Lal Meena, whose son has been booked along with four others for allegedly gangraping a minor in Dausa, said the case was “fake and baseless” and “a political conspiracy” to defame him” as assembly polls will be held in the state in 2023. Meena who is an MLA from Rajgarh-Laxmangarh constituency said, “The case against my son is absolutely fake, baseless. It is a political conspiracy after seeing my popularity. This is a new conspiracy to defame my image. Such complaints are coming to the fore because of the forthcoming elections.”
Recalling a case registered against him in the past, the MLA said that it turned out to be fake after investigation and so will the case against his son. “Some people have done it to harass me. Such things should not be done. They had registered an FIR against me as well earlier. However, it turned out to be baseless and fake after the investigation,” Meena said.
