Trinamool faces heat as Yechury plans to raise morphed photo issue in Parliament


CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday said that he will raise the issue of morphed picture used by Trinamool Congress in the Parliament session beginning tomorrow.

“I will raise the morphed picture issue in Parliament. Our party has already lodged a police complaint in this connection in Delhi,” PTI quoted the veteran Marxist leader as saying.

Yechury, according to the news agency, was speaking at an election meeting in Hooghly district of West Bengal.

This came after Senior CPI(M) leader Prakash Karat filed a complaint at Mandir Marg police station in New Delhi against TMC MP and its national spokesperson Derek O’Brien for allegedly using a morphed picture of him being offered sweets by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

O’Brien on Saturday had posted two videos and six pictures on the party’s website. The party, however, removed the morphed picture from its website after the controversy started.

One of the photos was of Rajnath Singh offering sweets to Prakash Karat. In the real photo, according to the Marxist leader, Singh was offering sweets to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
