All the BJP leaders were attacking the Congress over it, on the other hand, the Congress was saying that it was fake. The party also got a police case registered against it.

Meanwhile, an action by Twitter on Thursday night caused a major setback to the BJP and especially to Sambit Patra.

Now understand when Twitter takes such action. Actually, Twitter has a policy. According to which, if any information you have tweeted, it is essentially wrong, then this label is put under the tweet. You may recall, during the US presidential election, many tweets of former President Donald Trump were also labelled manipulated by Twitter and later his account was permanently suspended.

However, after the Twitter action, the Congress is now an attacker on the BJP. Party spokesperson Pawan Kheda, while taunting, called Sambit Patra a doctored Patra and wrote the caption – We do not say, the world says.
