With opposition attacking the ruling TMC on the issue of Dhulagarh riots, the TMC on Friday accused the BJP-RSS of spreading canard on social media to give “a local incident communal twist”.

“All the old social media tricks and habits of the BJP-RSS combo. Amplify a local issue. Give it a communal twist. Spread hate even after arrests,” TMC national spokesperson Derek O’Brien said in a statement.

O’Brien said Bengal has rejected “communal bigots in historic elections few months back”.

“Fake photos. Bogus hashtags. Sick mindsets. Millions of dollars pumped into SM... BJP-RSS talk about Digital India but promote Divisive India,” he said.
