News Portal That Carried Report on Ram Madhav-NSCN Vanishes

News Portal That Carried Report on Ram Madhav-NSCN Vanishes
February 13
11:22 2018

The BJP on Monday sought strict action against the news portal that claimed that party leader Ram Madhav was caught red-handed by separatist NSCN with two Naga women in a hotel room in Nagaland even as the portal vanished.

“We are talking up with such cases very seriously and what is more suspicious is that the news portal which carried the story has completely vanished,” Bharatiya Janata Party national spokesperson Nalin Kolhi told journalists in Shillong.

He said that the party has sought for appropriate action against those responsible for the mischief under various sections of the law and the Information Technology Act.

Senior BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy, who was also present at news conference said: “It is a fictitious report intended to tarnish the image of Ram Madhav. Fake news cannot be tolerated. Suspiciously, the news portal has vanished but we are following up with the case aggressively.”

Quoting sources, media portal “Newsjoint” claimed that last week, Madhav, the BJP General Secretary in-charge North East, “was caught red-handed and saffron faced, working well beyond his brief, with two Naga women in a hotel room”.

“Madhav was held in captivity by the NSCN (Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland) for hours. He then made frantic SOS calls to Assam (minister) colleague Himanata Biswa Sarma, BJP’s trouble shooter in the Northeast,” the report alleged, adding that Madhav was released only after Sarma reached out to the NSCN.

The news portal also claimed that the NSCN also has the video footage in possession, which it has threatened to release in public, “if the BJP-RSS do not give in to its demand to call off the assembly elections in Nagaland, due on February 27″.
