Congress Wants "Manipulated Media" Tag On 11 Union Ministers' Tweets

Congress leader addressing Toolkit issue

Congress intensified the "toolkit" issue today, demanding that Twitter join the "manipulated media" tag to the tweets of a few Union ministers who purportedly posted the "forged document" from their authority online media handles. Calling it "false and malicious propaganda," senior gathering pioneer Randeep Surjewala recorded the names of 11 ministers. It gave the connections to their tweets in his letter to the online media stage. 

Congress has asserted that some BJP pioneers forged the substance of the toolkit document to spread possibly risky charges against the gathering and gain excessive political benefit. 

Without mentioning the issue, the party's senior leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted, "Truth remains unafraid."

Mr. Surjewala's rundown included Union ministers Giriaj Singh, Piyush Goyal, Smriti Irani, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Prahlad Joshi, Dharmendra Pradhan, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Thawarchand Gehlot, Harsh Vardhan, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

"It is a matter of the fact that people tend to believe "true" and take on face value, any information that is put up directly by a Union Minister of the Government of India through his/ her official/ verified Twitter account," Mr. Surjewala wrote.
