Three prominent Congress members, including Rahul Gandhi, have been charged with violating the party's "Bharat Jodo Yatra" by allegedly using music from the popular Kannada film "KGF-2" without permission.



Following a complaint from M Naveen Kumar, the manager of MRT music, Gandhi, Jairam Ramesh, and Supriya were charged with violating the Copyright Act, the Information Technology Act, and the Indian Penal Code for using KGF-2 music during the current Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is being led by Rahul Gandhi.

The complainant claimed that Jairam Ramesh had tweeted two videos of the yatra on his official Twitter account in which well-known songs from the film KGF-2 were utilised without authorization.



"The said videos were made using the popular sound recordings owned and held by the complainant. The said sound recordings are that of the cinematographic film "KGF Chapter 2" (Hindi version) which is popular globally," Mr Naveen Kumar allegedly said.
