Sharmistha Mukherjee Congress leader and Pranab Mukherjee said that as she had feared and cautioned her father against, the ‘dirty tricks department’ of the BJP-RSS was at work in full swing, after a morphed picture was circulated on social media showing the former president raising his hand in salutation like the RSS leaders and cadres.
Responding to a tweet showing a “morphed” picture of Pranabh Mukherjee doing the salutation along with RSS leaders and cadres at the RAA headquarters in Nagpur she said,”See, this exactly what I was fearing and warned my father about. Not even few hours have passed, but BJP/RSS dirty tricks dept is at work in full swing!”
She twitted,”Hope @CitiznMukherjee now realises from today’s incident, how BJP dirty tricks dept operates. Even RSS wouldn’t believe that u r going 2 endorse its views in ur speech. But the speech will be forgotten, visuals will remain & those will be circulated with fake statements.
@CitiznMukherjee By going 2 Nagpur, u r giving BJP/RSS full handle 2 plant false stories, spread falls rumours as 2day & making it somewhat believable. And this is just d beginning!”
