The Nagaland State BJP has vehemently denounced a fictitious report circulating in the social media which sought to tarnish the image and integrity of BJP national leader and in-charge North East, Ram Madhav.
Itmay be mentioned that a website called News Joint had published a report whereby they attempted to tarnish the image of Ram Madhav. The news item, is now unavailable as it might have been removed.
The BJP statement also went on to say that the report purportedly written by News Joint, which seems to be another fake news agency or channel is devoid of any truth and written with malicious intent. Such spreading of false news is tantamount to not only character assassination but also poses grave risk of sparking off communal tension.
The State BJP has taken this fake news issue with all seriousness and will initiate prompt and fitting action against those behind spreading the fabricated news. Appropriate sections of the law and the IT Act would be applied to penalize and punish those responsible for the mischief.
