Congress leaders play tricks
even during calamities
The Facebook page, created in the name of UPCC president Nirmal Khatri, carried a photo showing the police beating some RSS workers for theft during Chennai floods. The same photo was published in Agra edition of Dainik Jagran three years back in a totally different matter. The same photo was misused some years back by a Congress leader for defaming the Sangh workers falsely connecting them with teasing girls in Bhopal.
People world over saw the RSS swayamsevaks in forefront during Chennai floods rescuing the victims and also provide relief material. Their sewa spirit was applauded by one and all. But instead of appreciating their sewa spirit, some people, including Congress leaders, defamed these Sevavratis by morphing their photos.
In the first week of December, a photo went viral on Facebook showing some policemen beating RSS swayamsevaks. The caption of the photo claimed that police caught them stealing valuables during the Chennai floods. When the matter was investigated by Navbharat Times and Dainik Jagran, it was found that the photo which was used to defame the Sangh workers was basically published in Agra edition of Dainik Jagran three years back.
The photo was clicked during the lathicharge on the Sangh workers at Tedhi Bagiya area of Agra on November 11, 2012 when a cycle yatra conducted by Sangh workers was attacked by some Scorpio bound youth. When the Sangh workers went to the police station to protest against the attack by the youth the police resorted to lathicharge against them only. Dainik Jagran on November 12, 2012 had published that photo. The same photo was posted on Facebook on December 6 through the Facebook page created in the name of Uttar Pradesh Congress president Nirmal Khatri. Noticing the mischief on December 8, the Sangh workers shown in the photo as culprits went to the SSP office in Agra along with some Sangh and BJP leaders. They got a complaint registered against Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee president Nirmal Khatri and the Congress leaders who shared this photo without ascertaining the fact.
The same photo was misused some time back in Bhopal when a youth Congress leader known as Mehul Maru posted on the Facebook with a caption that Police beating Sangh workers for teasing a girl in Bhopal.
