Complaints have been filed against a skit performed during the official Republic Day function of the Kerala High Court today by the staff of the High Court in the Auditorium inside the High Court.

The skit mocked and ridiculed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and policies of the Central Government. "Cow dung" jibe has been used against supporters of PM Narendra Modi, without naming the Prime Minister, as per the alleged audio of the event.

Complaints have been filed by Bharathiya Abhibashaka Parishad and Legal Cell Ernakulam. "The most unfortunate incident in the history of Kerala High Court wherein an official program of the High Court had been used as a platform to mock the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India by insulting him personally and criticising social welfare schemes of the Central Government", says the complaint by Bharathiya Abhibashaka Parishad sent to Chief Justice of India, Chief Justice of the High Court, Union Law Minister and the Prime Minister.

"If I say that it has medicinal value, my followers will even eat cow dung. That is my strength", a political leader looking like Prime Minister Modi, with a white beard, says in the skit.

As per reports, at least three Judges of the High Court were in the audience during the official function watching the skit. Apart from the staff of the High Court, the staff of the Advocate General's office and Advocates' Clerks were also part of the skit.

"My dear countrymen", says the political leader in Malayalam, similar to the famous "Mere Pyare Deshvasiyom" address by PM Modi. Another character then asks others to run, saying something untoward is going to happen. "When I say "pyara", the public says "poora" ("not enough" in Malayalam). It is because they don't love their country. Traitors", says the political leader in the skit.

"I have left my family to travel the world. Yet the people are ungrateful", says the political leader in the skit.

The skit mocks 'Jal Jeevan Mission' of the Central government, calling it 'Jal Dhara Mission' instead. As per the skit, there is only a warranty by the government to build toilets, in a veiled reference to the Swachh Bharat Mission of the Centre.

"The skit even implies that the Nation has not achieved the freedom yet and in a subtle way mocks the prestigious 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav'", says the complaint by Legal Cell to Chief Justice AJ Desai of the Kerala High Court.

We should unite against these exploiters, there will be change. We should proclaim loudly that communalism and fake patriotism have no place in our thoughts and deeds, it is announced in the skit.

In the skit, a farmer says that his products have been forcefully taken from him by big businessmen at a nominal price. The actor playing a farmer in the skit says that animals are getting better treatment in the country than farmers.

As per sources, Assistant Registrar Sudheesh TA wrote the dialogues for the skit.
