Madhya Pradesh: BJP files complaint against Kamal Nath for posting fake photo ahead of polls

The Madhya Pradesh BJP on Wednesday lodged a police complaint against Madhya Pradesh Congress party chief Kamal Nath for posting a false image to malign the image of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

According to the reports, the BJP has called for strict action against Kamal Nath for resorting to sharing a fake image of a road from Bangladesh to target Shivraj Singh Chouhan ahead of the state elections in Madhya Pradesh.

Kamal Nath, one of the contenders to the post of Chief Minister from the Congress had tweeted an image accusing the ruling BJP government of involving in corruption. Kamal Nath had used a picture of shoddily constructed road to take a dig at Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government. However, the picture tweeted by Kamal Nath was later found out to be an image captured in 2016 by a Bangladeshi citizen, Rifat Alam to criticize the Bangladeshi government for the poor conditions of roads.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had reacted to the fake image circulated by the Congress leader, said, “What can we say about our friends from the Congress party? First, Digvijay Singh brought a pool in Pakistan to Madhya Pradesh and now Kamal Nath has brought a Bangladeshi road to Madhya Pradesh.”

The Prime Minister also spoke regarding this issue and accused the Congress of resorting to “falsehoods” to gain power. “Sometimes there is fake news and sometimes there are misleading photographs. In fact, Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government has done so much of development work that the opposition can’t raise their finger at it. It has turned Madhya Pradesh from a “BIMARU state to Bemisal state” (from a sick state to an incomparable state),” the Prime Minister said.

Earlier, we had reported about repeated incidents of Congress spreading the fake news on social media. Senior Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi had posted a fake petrol bill on Twitter to incite the public against the BJP. He was slammed by Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and said that Congress has become desperate and they are trying to instigate people.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) has announced the dates for the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Mizoram and Telangana. The states of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan will go to poll on November 28 and December 7 respectively and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018.
