Endorsing abusive  posts on social media will now invite trouble
This has been made clear by the authorities while considering a complaint lodged by Union minister and Congress candidate Kodiukunnil Suresh seeking action against defamatory postings on social media against him.

Suresh, seeking re-election from Mavelikkara seat, alleged that fake and morphed pictures casting him in poor light had been appearing in social media with political intentions.

Alappuzha district collector N Padmakumar, who looked into the complaint, said not only those who made the postings but those who shared them would also be liable to face legal action.

Police had been asked to register a case and investigate Suresh’s complaint, official sources said.
Meanwhile, senior CPM leader M Vijayakumar ran into trouble for allegedly making abusive comments against Union minister Shashi Tharoor here.

Tharoor, who filed nomination from Thiruvananthapuram LS seat, said the comments of Vijayakumar involved breach of election code of conduct and he would be lodging a complaint with the Election Commission.
