BJP turning social media into 'fake' media: T Harish Rao
Finance Minister T Harish Rao has appealed to voters to be vigilant of false propaganda by the BJP just before the election, and criticised them for turning social media into 'fake' media.
Speaking at a press conference in Patancheru on Monday, he said that the party was trying to give out false information that some TRS leaders were going to join the BJP. He said BJP had made such attempts before the Dubbaka polls too.
