Congress has filed an FIR against BJP national president JP Nadda, BJP general Secretary B L Santhosh, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra and Union Minister Smriti Irani in connection with “toolkit” issue.
The FIR was filed by Rajasthan Congress Secretary Jaswant Gurjar at Bajaj Nagar Police Station in Jaipur. He accused BJP of doing politics of deceit, lies and hypocrisy.
The move comes after the BJP released a “toolkit” claiming it to be made by Congress to defame Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image for his handling of Covid-19 pandemic. Congress has however denied of having such “toolkit”.
The toolkit was first published at RSS mouthpiece organisation and in ministers first by JP Nadda over his Twitter handle. It was further taken by the other leaders including Sambit Patra, Smriti Irani and B L Santhosh.
The alleged toolkit asks Congress ministers to purportedly use terms like “Modi strain”and “Indian strain” and to “keep using the term super spreader Kumbh”.
The toolkit has asks the Congress party members to purportedly use “dramatic pictures of the funerals and dead bodies” saying “PM Modi’s approval ratings have been high and have not dipped despite the crisis and mismanagement”. The toolkit also carries a Congress symbol at the corner of it.
