Congress MLA Jignesh Mevani’s assistant nabbed for sharing doctored video of Amit Shah

Amit Shah, speaking about the doctored clip, accused the Congress of being involved and claimed that the party had reached a new low in politics under Rahul Gandhi’s leadership.

Jignesh MevaniAHMEDABAD: The Gujarat police have arrested Congress MLA Jignesh Mevani’s personal assistant and an AAP worker for sharing a doctored video of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

According to Lavina Sinha, Ahmedabad’s DCP for Zone-1, “Two Facebook profiles, one under the name of Satish Vansola and the other under RB Bariya, shared an edited video of the Union Home Minister [Amit Shah] on social media. Both individuals were apprehended yesterday. Initial inquiries reveal their affiliations with political parties. Further investigation is ongoing.”

The police official added, “An FIR was lodged against the two individuals under sections 505A, 1B, 469, 153A of the Indian Penal Code, along with provisions of the IT Act.”

In response to Vansola’s arrest, Mevani expressed disbelief, stating, “I cannot fathom him knowingly engaging in such acts. I have never supported fake videos or propaganda in my life. I condemn all such actions. However, during elections, no one should be singled out unfairly. Satish is like a brother to me, and I am proud to call him a friend. He is not someone who would intentionally engage in malicious activities. I have known him intimately for six years.”

Amit Shah, speaking on Tuesday about the doctored clip, accused the Congress of being involved and claimed that the party had reached a new low in politics under Rahul Gandhi’s leadership.

“The Congress is spreading falsehoods about the BJP altering the Constitution and abolishing reservations. We don’t categorize voters as minority or majority. The BJP anticipates winning 12 out of the 14 Lok Sabha seats in Assam,” he told the media.

“The Congress is spreading misinformation that the BJP will end reservations after crossing 400 seats. These claims are baseless and unfounded… I want to make it clear that the BJP supports reservations for SCs, STs and OBCs and will always play its role as a protector,” said Shah.
