Home Minister Amit Shah launched a frontal assault on Congress today, following the global spread of a deep-fake video of him declaring he would abolish reservations. Reetam Singh, a Congress volunteer from Assam’s Guwahati, was detained yesterday for allegedly creating and spreading a fake video of the Home Minister.
The deep-fake video portrayed Mr. Shah discussing the abolition of all reservations, while in fact he was speaking to the removal of quotas for Muslims in Telangana on religious grounds. Prior to losing power to the Congress, the BJP abolished such a quota in Karnataka.

During a news conference today, Mr. Shah showed both tapes to demonstrate what he truly said against what the doctored footage projected him to say.

“Religious quotas are unjust and cannot be tolerated. We have already deleted it from Karnataka. “This is what I said in the video,” Mr Shah explained.

“The fake video twisted it to say the BJP will scrap all reservations,” stated the Home Minister.

In reality, Mr Shah has stated that the BJP will not abolish reservations for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes, and will not let anybody to do so, referring to it as “Modi’s guarantee.”

Opposition parties have claimed that the BJP’s appeal for “abki baar 400 paar” is an attempt to gain 400 seats in the Lok Sabha elections in order to eliminate quotas for ST, SC, and OBCs.
