Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh had said in a tweet on Monday, “The BJP IT Cell sunk to new depths of desperation and dishonesty with their latest attack on the Congress and Rahul Gandhi.”

“The Congress has filed a criminal complaint against all the individuals involved and it shall be pursued to the fullest extent of the law. No matter how high or “powerful” they (BJP leaders) may think they are, we will make sure that they are held accountable for the lies they peddle,” Ramesh added.

The complaint was filed by Karnataka Minister for Rural Development and Panchayati Raj, Priyank Kharge, and KPCC Spokesperson Ramesh Babu for releasing an animated video of Rahul Gandhi.

“In that video it is claimed that the Congress party is indulging in anti-national activities and whenever Rahul Gandhi goes abroad, he is indulging in anti-national activities. The video also shows that Congress and Rahul Gandhi are breaking the nation,” IAN quoted Kharge as saying.

“We have decided to close down the factory of lies run by the BJP. They could get away with it as it was their government here (Karnataka). The fact-check unit was closed then. The BJP party workers themselves created fake news. We will not let it happen now. Fact-check unit would be strengthened. I have already spoken to the Chief Minister. The posts which are communal, disturbing peace, will be dealt with and strict action would be taken,” he had said.

We will also speak to the Home department and create a separate squad for the fact-check process,” Kharge had said.
