Newsroom24x7 Network

New Delhi: BJP’s latest allegation that a Congress toolkit was being used to malign the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP led NDA Government over the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has blown a big political storm with the Congress going on the offensive and accusing the BJP of fabricating documents by using the Congress letter head to spread lies and misinformation.The Congress party has even lodged a police complaint against top BJP leaders, including party President JP Nadda in this matter.

The issue was flagged initially by BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra who on Tuesday 18 May tweeted: “Friends look at the Congress ToolKit in extending help to the needy during the Pandemic! More of a PR exercise with the help of “Friendly Journalists” & “Influencers” than a soulful endeavour. Read for yourselves the agenda of the Congress.

Congress acted quickly and lodged a police complaint against few top BJP leaders. Using the official party handle, the Congress tweeted “AICC Research Department Chairman Rajeev Gowda and INC SM Chairman Rohan Gupta have filed an FIR against BJP President JP Nadda, BJP National Spokesperson Sambit Patra and others for forgery & fabricated content.
