Sambit Patra said while lakhs of BJP workers are busy in distributing food to the needy during the lockdown, the national office-bearers of the Congress are smuggling expensive liquor in the national capital.

BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra has accused the Congress of smuggling liquor in national capital during lockdown.

The Congress today hit back at the Bharatiya Janata Party after the latter alleged that a former leader of the NSUI, the grand old party’s students’ wing, was booked for its transportation in Delhi amid the ongoing lockdown. Congress Yuva Morcha President BV Srinivas has served legal notices to BJP spokespersons Sambit Patra and Amit Malviya.

In a tweet, Srinivas said: “See You in the Court CEO of Fake News Factory Amit Malviya and Brand Ambassador Sambit Patra.” This comes hours after BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged that the national office-bearers of the Congress had indulged in smuggling expensive liquor in the national capital.

“It is being said that the vehicle having essential services pass used by the Congress national office-bearers and secretaries were smuggling liquor for big people was of Congress president Yuva Morcha BV Srinivas. Friends, this is the character of Congress,” he tweeted in Hindi.

“While the BJP workers are busy in providing food to 5 crore people, a Congress’ national level functionary is distributing expensive liquor in Lutyens Delhi , doing smuggling… This is the character of the Congress… What a strategy Rahul ji,” Patra said in another tweet.

BJP youth wing Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha’s leader Rohit Chahal tweeted that the vehicle being allegedly used for liquor sale was given permission to distribute food. “Two functionaries of the youth wing of the Congress have been caught,” Chahal who is BJYM’s media in-charge said.

Srinivas, however, has termed it a conspiracy by the ruling BJP to defame his party’s relief work. “Our crime is that food and medicine have been provided by us to lakhs of people,” he said.
