BJP slams state health secretary for alleged video chat, calls for him to resign Speaking to ANI, BJP Jharkhand spokesman Pratul Shahdeo said Congress should clarify its position on “obscene and indecent” videos.
“The viral video purportedly showing the Minister of Health is very offensive. While the accuracy of the clip has yet to be determined, we want to know if it is real or fake. Since he is a member of the state cabinet headed by the Chief Minister (Hemant Soren), CM It is the duty to order an investigation to determine whether the clip is real or fake,” Shahdeo said.
However, he said the minister should resign immediately if the alleged video turned out to be genuine.
Meanwhile, the BJP’s national health minister hit back at its “retaliatory policy” and claimed the alleged clip was part of a “conspiracy” to tarnish its image.
The minister ended the so-called video chat, calling it “false and edited”, and issued a statement saying he had lodged an FIR on the matter.
“A fake and edited video was intentionally circulated on social media. It is obvious that the video was edited using Photoshop or using some other editing application. I have filed a FIR on this matter. Take legal action,” the deputy said.
