New Delhi: Different fora including social media are being used by forces opposed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's move to end the black-money menace and circulation of fake notes printed by some Pakistani agents . In social media , especially Facebook , some of the comments are vulgar and abusive.
The issue was raised in the Rajya Sabha too. Cutting across party lines some opposition members made serious objection to it because it concerned the political head of the country. A video which has gone viral shows a man standing close to a Samajwadi Party member of parliament. The man is using a fowl language against the PM and the MP is seen laughing over it.
The MP, Amar Singh, who is considered close to the party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, has denied any link with the man. "The video may be doctored", he told media persons on Wednesday. The video was uploaded on November 12, four days after the announcement of the demonetisation decision.
Some upper house members were so agitated over the misuse of social media like Facebook that they demanded an inquiry and fixing of responsibility. The culprits should be identified and punished immediately.
