Irked over the repeated circulation of fake probable candidates’ list for ensuing assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) filed a complaint with Cyber Cell of Himachal Pradesh Police on Monday.
BJP IT-Cell Convener Ravi Rai Rana said the state BJP chief Satpal Singh Satti and other senior leaders had taken serious note of repeated circulation of probable party candidates list for Assembly polls.
“The lists were resulting in rumour mongering and confusion, so the party has decided to file a case,” he said.
Rana said strict action should be taken against the those who are indulging in such activities ahead of Assembly polls.
“State BJP chief Satti has also issued stern warning that if any leader or worker of the party is found indulging in such activities, action will be taken against him as per party rules,” he said.
“The party chief has also constituted a five-member committee of IT Cell that would monitor all information pertaining to the BJP shared on social media,” Satti said.
