Congress warns of stern legal action over Rahul Gandhi's doctored video

New Delhi, July 3

The Congress on Sunday warned the BJP and a section of the media to desist from doctoring facts to "defame" the party and its leaders, and said an FIR had been registered in Jaipur against a TV channel for airing a doctored video of Rahul Gandhi.

Congress leader and head of media and publicity Pawan Khera said more such action will be taken against the BJP and its leaders for propagating fake news and sharing the doctored video of Rahul in which his comments about SFI leaders, who allegedly ransacked his Wayanad office were "mischievously" used as if it looked like he was condoning or forgiving the killers of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur.

The purported video has since been taken off air and the channel has apologised after admitting its mistake, he said, but added that a lot of damage has already been done.

Khera warned that the Congress will take stern and a befitting legal action against all those indulging in fake news against its leadership as its "decency should not be mistaken as its shackle". The Congress leader alleged that former information and broadcasting minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, who hails from Rajasthan, shared the video "irresponsibly" and some others in the BJP followed suit.
