FIR Filed Against Three Karnataka Congress Workers For Spreading False News in Mysuru


Police in Chikkamagaluru have filed an FIR against three Congress workers for allegedly spreading false news on social media targeting BJP national general secretary CT Ravi. HC Kalmurdapp, district president of the BJP in Chikkamagaluru made the accusation against the three working for the Congress’s IT cell who claimed that Ravi insulted a particular community. Ravi, who is also Chikkamagaluru’s MLA, completely denied the claims and has taken offense to the accusation, emphasizing that he never insulted any community and has never been involved in caste politics.

The Congress, ahead of the election, is accused of attempting to spread false news, with the community leaders calling on people to not support Ravi and demanded an apology from him. Kalmurdappa’s complaint states that the false news has embarrassed Ravi and he was unable to face the people of the community.

The three accused belong to Davanagere and Tumakuru and are working for the Congress’s IT cell. It is essential to be aware of the consequences of spreading false news before the elections, with appropriate action to be taken for those found guilty. It is paramount that all political parties follow the due process before propagating any news, to avoid any chaos and protect people’s right to education and knowledge.

CT Ravi is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party. He assumed office as the Minister of Tourism, Kannada and Culture in the 17th Karnataka Legislative Assembly in 2019 and represents Chikkamagaluru Constituency. He is a former journalist who has worked with various leading newspapers in Karnataka. He has also served as the Chairman of the Sugarcane Growers’ Committee and the Regional Director of the Coconut Growers’ Union.

The BJP is the ruling party in Maharashtra, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The party champions the philosophy of ideal governance, security and development for India as well as the protection of civil liberties. It has a strong presence in Karnataka, with an aim to bring good governance and development to the state.
