‘PM event video clip doctored’
Guwahati: A video clip of Tripura sports minister Manoj Kanti Deb touching social welfare minister Shantana Chakma inappropriately on Saturday went viral. The video was of the event where PM Narendra Modi inaugurated projects. The Tripura unit of BJP dismissed the video as a malicious campaign launched by the opposition.
Deb said the video was doc- tored. “How can this be possible and, that too, in the presence of the Prime Minister and a large crowd? Someone has to be of very dirty mentality to doctor the video of a programme. I was trying to come forward,” he added.
Victor Shom, in charge of the media cell of BJP’s Tripura unit, said the video was a “conspiracy by the opposition to malign,” the minister.
