Congress IT cell caught spreading fake pics of BJP supporter

The Congress social media team has often been caught peddling untruths on social media. Just 2-3 months ago, a Congress IT cell member who has now been thrown out, was caught spreading a photoshopped “survey” showing PM Modi in bad light. After our expose the account apologised and deleted the tweet. Yesterday, Congress leader Ajay Maken too was caught in a similar situation when he was shared picture where he tried to claim that “Service Charge” which is not a tax but a source of income for restaurants, was also one of the taxes levied by Governments:

Add to this the fact that Congress and AAP trolls love to harass independent, free thinking women online, like Shefali Vaidya, only because she supports BJP. Shefali has already told us how she was harassed, abused and even her child was threatened on social media.

Combine the above: photoshop skills of Congress and and the pathological hatred for people supporting the BJP then what you get is this: Congress IT cell members and spokespersons spreading fake pictures of a social media post which is touted to be made by Shefali Vaidya, but which actually belongs to a fake profile.

These are the tweets by Rachit Seth who claims to be from the “Indian National Congress MSM Communication Department” and of Gaurav Pandhi  who claims to be a member of “Digital Communication at Indian National Congress”.

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi too tried to help spread the above image by replying to a tweet by another Congress sympathiser (the original tweet was later deleted):

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsThey claimed that the post was by Shefali Vaidya, whereas the post was actually by a facebook profile called “Shefali Vidya”. The profile seems to have been created recently, and seems to be posting only messages which could serve as embarrassment to Right Wing supporters. Further, although the profile is named “Vidya” the screenshot used by the Congress IT cell says “Vaidya” which clearly shows that photoshop was used. So a fake profile’s screenshot is photoshopped and used to malign and harass Shefali Vaidya.

When Shefali pointed out to both Pandhi and Chaturvedi that the screenshot is not hers and is fake, both of them did not pay heed to her points but ridiculed her:

Chaturvedi’s reply

Being a national spokesperson and a woman, it was expected that at least Chaturvedi would sympathise with a woman being harassed. But party loyalties are stronger than ties of humanity hence she chose to ridicule and ignore Shefali Vaidya. //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
