Later, the Special Cell of the Delhi Police team conducted a raid on Twitter India offices in Delhi and Gurugram on Monday evening to investigate the alleged ‘Covid Toolkit’ case.
The BJP alleges that the Congress, by creating a toolkit, described the new form of Coronavirus as ‘Indian form’ or ‘Modi form’ and tried to tarnish the image of the country and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. However, Congress rejected the allegations, claiming that the BJP was resorting to fake ‘toolkits’ to discredit it. Congress has also registered a case of ‘forgery’ in the police against several senior BJP leaders.
