Raipur: Chhattisgarh health minister TS Singh Deo has termed the news regarding his statement on UP polls being surfaced on a news web portal as fake.
A web portal published false and objectionable news quoting Deo which read “I do not know how to lie like CM, Congress will only be able to win 4 to 5 seats”.
Taking cognizance of the matter, Health Minister TS Singh Deo’s office has written a letter to the Station House Officer, Civil Line Police Station as per his instructions.
The news is completely false and baseless and is an attempt to tarnish the image of the minister. No such statement has been made or issued by the minister. This type of misleading news is being spread to pollute the political environment under a well-planned conspiracy, the letter stated. The authorities have been asked to take strict legal action against the news portal for this move.
FAKE NEWS ALERT: किसी दुर्भावना के तहत फैलाए जा रही इस झूठी खबर की मैं कड़ी निंदा करता हूँ। साथ ही FIR कर रहा हूँ कि साइबर सेल मुझे बदनाम करने का षड़यंत्र कर रहे इन लोगों का पर्दाफाश कर न्यायसंगत कार्यवाही करे। (1/2) pic.twitter.com/YYT5jITE78
