Complaint in Cyber crime police over tempered video of PM Modi’s speech

Gandhinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently in his parliament address quoted late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, but on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and potentially on WhatsApp, a lot of users have put a portion of Modi’s address in such a way that Modi quoting Nehru’s opinion against reservation system, actually looks like Modi’s own opinion.

A police complaint has been filed by Hiren Jadav in Ahmedabad’s Cyber Crime police station against Facebook and YouTube users. The FIR mentions a Facebook user Solanki Kaushik Bhai and the YouTube channel SJ Creation. Police have booked the accused under IPC sections 153A, 469 and 505.

While calling the Congress leader “anti-reservation,” PM Modi read out Jawaharlal Nehru’s letter in which the Nehru said that he is strongly against anything that leads to inefficiency and second-rate standards.

“….I am reading out its translation – ‘I dislike any kind of reservation, more particularly in services. I am strongly against anything which leads to inefficiency and second-rate standards..,’PM Modi said reading the contents of the letter.

“That is why I say that they are against it (reservation) by birth…Had the government recruited at that time and promoted them from time to time, they would have been here today,” the Prime Minister said

“Congress and its allies have always had difficulty in giving greater participation to SC/ST and OBC. They left no stone unturned to destroy Baba Saheb’s ideas. There was no preparation to give him Bharat Ratna, when the government was formed with the support of the BJP, Baba Saheb was given Bharat Ratna…For the first time in the country, NDA Govt made an Adivasi daughter the President of India…,” PM Modi said.

However a lot of handles on Instagram and Facebook have posted Nehru’s thoughts as Modi’s by cutting the portion of Modi’s speech in which Modi referred to Nehru, apparently to take political benefit.
