BJP IT cell head from Delhi resigns, claims party is misleading people
Sukhpreeet Singh resigned from his position while the farmers' protests against the farm reform acts in Delhi.
A young IT chief of Bharatiya Janata Party's Tilak Nagar division in West Delhi resigned from his position and the party two days ago, claiming that BJP is misleading people with false news and wrong information. Sukhpreeet Singh resigned from his position while the farmers' protests against the farm reform acts in Delhi and other parts of the country are at their peak, and the ruling party is trying its best to convince the farmers as well as the rest of the citizens otherwise.
In his letter dated December 7th accessed by Indie Journal and shared by him on Twitter, Singh wrote, "I am resigning from the post of IT Head of Tilak Nagar mandal division because the BJP IT Cell is misleading the citizens of India by sharing false news and wrong information. When I opposed these activities, BJP leaders and many RW (Right Wing) handles opposed me and started calling me anti-national."
#RESIGNED FROM BJP IT CELL CONVENER (TILAK NAGAR MADAL 13-S , DELHI) 🙏🏻— SUKHPREET SINGH / ਸੁਖਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ (@sukh_slatch) December 7, 2020
Singh had joined the BJP in 2019 and worked as the BJP co-convener of Tilak Nagar assembly in 2020 assembly elections before serving as the IT chief, as per his letter. Responding to the people asking him about his decision on Twitter, Singh also said that he cannot work under those who called him anti-national for pointing out something, and that he had to bear some “words and comments”, after he tweeted in favour of the farmers.
This news comes just a few days after Twitter, for the first time, flagged BJP IT Cell Head Amit Malviya's tweet as 'manipulated media'. Malviya had posted an edited clip from the farmers' protests. Through the farmers’ protests in the country, the BJP IT Cell has been posting about how the farm reform acts are actually for the benefit of the farmers, and questioning the leadership and motive behind the agitations, even openly claiming pro-Khalistan forces to be backing the farmers.
