Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani, who has adopted a tough time on Fake News, has become a victim of Fake News.
The reason lies in the false news of the death of Chief Election Commissioner TN Seshan in the 1990s.
Apart from Smriti Irani, Union Minister of State Dr. Jitendra Singh is also involved in the clutches of this Fake News.
Jitendra Singh wrote in a tweet, “Tien Seshan was not there on April 6. His wife had died a day earlier. Both have no children An honest cabinet secretary and later the chief election commissioner, who left his mark. In many ways … the end of an era. ”
Smriti Irani tweeting this tweet: “Om Shanti.
Are alive Tien Seshan
Both the leaders who paid tribute to Tien Seshan, they are still alive. Although it is true that TN Seshan’s wife died a few days ago.
However both of these Tweets have been deleted. But on social media people took screenshots of these tweets.
This mistake of Smriti Irani is too much in the headlines, because a few days ago, the restriction on Smriti Irani Fake News came to light.
Social media pinch
A few days ago, Smriti Irani had given a decision, in which, it was said that the writing of fax news or the dissemination of journalists was canceled. This decision was withdrawn after the intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Swati Chaturvedi writes, “Dear Smriti Irani, you have deleted your tweet without any clean-up fax news. But what is it that you think you can control the online news. ”
Hemant Kushwaha writes, “This memory irani is not going to improve. Paid tribute to Zinda Tien Seshan. ”
When Smriti promoted Fake News
Earlier this year, Smriti Irani tweeted a tweet.
The caption of this tweet was written- “Leh from Srinagar in 15 minutes. The Cabinet approves the Zojila Tunnel project.”
Smriti Irani tweeted the wrong tale. Which was later corrected by the media institution. But that tweet of Irani is still available today.
If Smriti Irani’s decision on Fake News was implemented, in such a situation she herself would fall in the category of promoters of the wrong news.
