Sharing a copy of the FIR on social media, Barman detailed the complaint filed at Hatigaon Police Station. He recalled a previous complaint he had filed against former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the coal gate scandal at Dispur Police Station.

In the complaint, Barman wrote, "I would like to inform you that our Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi has stated in election campaigning that our father of nation Mahatma Gandhi is known to the world till a movie is made on him. This is highly derogatory statement and can not be acceptable by a citizen of India whom we consider as the father of the nation and that was taught in our school also."

He added, "As citizen, we can not accept insult to Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi is larger than life and no film is required to introduce him in the world."

He further wrote, "By comparing Mahatma Gandhi with a film, Narendra Modi has defamed Mahatma Gandhi along with the people of India. Therefore, I request you to take action against Narendra Modi under relevant section of law."
