Assam Congress Claims Calls by Person Posing as Journalist Traced to BJP Office in Delhi

Guwahati: Assam Congress claimed on Saturday that it had traced to the BJP head office in Delhi the calls from a person, who posed as a TV news channel journalist, to some of its leaders and alleged it was an attempt by the saffron party “to fabricate fake news” against it.

The state BJP dismissed the allegations, saying reporters who come to BJP offices sometimes use the phones there and alleged that the Congress is raising non-issues as it is losing ground.

A press release by the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) claimed the person had called up Bobbeeta Sharma, the general secretary and senior spokesperson of Assam PCC, on September 21 and had introduced himself as a journalist of a popular English news TV channel,

He had sought information about East Guwahati constituency from where Sharma was a candidate in the 2016 state assembly election as well as the neighbouring seats of Dispur, West Guwahati, Jalukbari, Palasbari and Hajo, the release by Sharma said.
