Manish Tewari makes an outlandish charge, alleges ‘parts of the budget has been leaked’

This is a reminder of how Congress tried to silently organise an "EVM hacking expose" but gave their plan away when Kapil Sibal was spotted overseeing the "event". In fact, after all the noise they made, eventually, the "hackers" said that they had no proof that EVMs could be hacked

The Congress party has developed a penchant for furthering conspiracy theories and outlandish claims everytime there is a significant event in India. Whether it’s their Rafale “scam” theory which has been trashed over and over again or their theories about EVM tampering every time they lose, Congress has clearly tossed caution to the wind in a bid to fear monger. Today, when the Country is moments away from the Budget 2019 being presented, Congress leader Manish Tewari has floated another charge: That the budget has been leaked in parts to the media and others.

Congress leader Manish Tewari has taken to Twitter to attach photographs and allege that parts of the budget has been leaked to the media.

The photograph attached by the Congress leader is not a media article or information from any reliable source. It is merely a list of speculative points being furthered as ‘government sources’, which is the pet phrase of the media in any case.

Several people have been speculating what the Modi government may offer in the Budget 2019 considering it is their last budget before the make-or-break 2019 General Elections. Many have speculated that the government will stick to fiscal prudence, however, several others have predicted the Modi government opening up its coffers to offer a Tax rebate for the middle class, a big announcement for farmers and the poor and also, some headway in terms of a targeted basic income scheme.

All of this is, however, just speculation. Budgets have been prone to analysts speculating what the government might offer, however, for Congress leader Manish Tewari to take to Twitter and float a bizarre conspiracy theory with nothing to offer as proof is not just irresponsible but malicious.

This is a reminder of how Congress tried to silently organise an “EVM hacking expose” but gave their plan away when Kapil Sibal was spotted overseeing the “event”. In fact, after all the noise they made, eventually, the “hackers” said that they had no proof that EVMs could be hacked.

Yesterday, after Congress leader Randeep Surjewala lost Jind bypoll, Congress floated the ‘EVM hacked’ theory. It is surprising how EVMs magically get hacked only where they lose and not where they win. And this mentality is evidence of the fact that Congress is now only focussing on fearmongering and rabblerousing before the 2019 elections.
