new Delhi. The Congress president's comments on the PM Cares fund created by the central government to help the people in the coronary period became costly. An FIR has been registered against Sonia Gandhi in Shivamogga district of Karnataka. Praveen KV is a lawyer by profession. He alleges that the rumor was spread through the Twitter handle of Congress on May 11 about PM Care Fund. Sonia Gandhi has tried to incite a riot through this tweet. The police have registered an FIR against Sonia Gandhi under sections 153 and 505 of the IPC on Praveen's complaint.
Accused of setting a riot
In the sections in which Pravin has filed an FIR, Section 153 means making false statements or claims which provoke a riot or a disturbance. On the other hand, Section 505 means misleading people. The complainant's lawyer claims that the official Twitter handle of the Congress is operated by Sonia Gandhi herself and that all statements being tweeted from there bear Sonia's approval.
The charges were made by tweeting on 11 May
On May 11, several tweets were made from the official Twitter handle of the Congress over the PM Cares fund. Questions were raised about the transparency of the fund. A tweet said, 'Like every scheme of the BJP, confidentiality is being maintained in the PM Cares Fund. Should people who donate to PM Cares fund not know about its use? '
Another tweet reads, 'It is becoming clear from the name PM Cares that this fund is not made for the public but for the care of the Prime Minister. If the BJP wanted to take care of the people in the government, there would not have been long convoys of migrant laborers on the streets.
Rahul Gandhi has also made allegations
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has also accused the government several times about the PM Care Fund. Rahul says that there is no need of PM Care Fund. The Disaster Relief Fund is already operational. In such a situation, starting this fund is under doubt. He also demanded an audit of it. The Congress also asked many questions to the government through a video. Like – how much money is received in charity? How is the money being used? Who is being given the benefit of this?
