Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh have increased difficulties. Bhopal Crime Branch lodged an FIR against him under various sections of IPC.
Actually, this action against Singh has come on the complaint of the ruling BJP in the state. According to sources, Digvijay had allegedly posted or shared fake videos related to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan on social media, on which he has been booked.
A memorandum in this regard was submitted by the BJP delegation led by former Minister Umashankar Gupta to the Crime Branch of Bhopal Police. The memorandum demanded that action should be taken against Digvijay Singh for sharing the morphed (manipulated) video.
A case was registered after this on Sunday. In the clip about which action has been taken against Digvijay, Shivraj Singh Chauhan has an old statement about alcohol.
Bhopal DIG Irshad Wali had tweeted – This matter is related to the editing of the old video of CM Shivraj and it was spread on social media to tarnish his image. We have taken this matter seriously. At present, an FIR has been registered under the Cyber Act and investigations are on.
However, CM was targeted on social media by tweeting on behalf of Digvijay on Sunday. It was written – Shivraj would have ruined us if we had not brought down the government. If you do bad deeds, how long will you be saved?
