Bengaluru: Taking a dig at a section of media on reports of MP Tejasvi Surya’s apology at Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) war room, the office of Tejasvi Surya in a tweet on Friday said, “When one has no news, they create fake news.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Surya, Bommanahalli BJP MLA M Sathish Reddy and Basavanagudi MLA Ravi Subramanya made claims about the bed blocking scam in Bengaluru and doubted the involvement of a few Muslims, who were deployed at the COVID War Room of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).
As the expose went live on Tuesday and Surya read out their names, Subramanya screamed at the BBMP officials, “Have you appointed these people for Madrassa or the Corporation (BBMP)?”
Later on Friday media reports suggested that Surya had revisited the COVID-19 war room in Bengaluru South and apologised to the staff .
The Twitter page of office of Tejasvi Surya refuted the reports and said, “When one has no news, they create fake news.”
The Bengaluru South BJP re-tweeted the message on his personal Twitter handle.
