People demand arrest of Vadra’s relative after he shares sensitive information about PM’s travel

To deflect attention from the ‘Chhole Bhature’ gaffe of the Congress party and to get even with the Bharatiya Janata Party which has been attacking the Congress President over the issue, Congress supporter and brother-in-law of Robert Vadra, Tehseen Poonawalla tweeted the picture of a secret document containing sensitive information about the Prime Minister’s Tamil Nadu visit:

The information apparently “exposed” that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had food even though he had announced a fast. However, in his haste to target the Prime Minister, Tehseen presumably quite deliberately tried to mislead the public by ignoring that the document is titled as a “Tentative Tour Programme” which is dated 6th of April while Prime Minister Modi announced the decision of observing a fast 4 days later.

After spotting this attempt to spread misinformation, Twitter users started demanding that Tehseen Poonawalla be arrested for sharing a secret document containing sensitive information about the Prime Minister’s visit on a public platform:

It is pertinent to mention that a certain Anupam Pandey, who is incidentally a supporter of Narendra Modi, was booked under the Official Secrets Act for a very similar reason. He was accused of divulging confidential details of the schedule of the Varanasi trip by Prime Minister Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron on social media last month.

Instead of condemning this behaviour of the party supporter, senior leader of the Congress party and a national spokesperson, R.S.Surjewala has also demonstrated that he does not quite understand the meaning of the word ‘tentative’ nor the gravity of the document that was shared by Poonawalla.

Now the question is if the administration will treat these fellows the same way they treated Anupam Pandey.

The BJP led governments have thus far displayed an unnerving lack of intent at going earnestly after repeat offenders from the opposition parties. It will be interesting to see if it does react on this occasion considering that an attempt was made to compromise the Prime Minister’s security.

And if it does, perhaps it can be expected that sections of the media and the intellectual elite, which had chosen to look the other way when Anupam Pandey was arrested, will be up in arms with cries of creeping fascism should legal proceedings be initiated against a relative of Robert Vadra. The way they are now crying foul after Congress supporting individuals were highlighted as abusive trolls, after having cheered when BJP supporters were branded such.
