Pro-AAP Youtuber, Dhruv Rathee has landed in a soup as popular social media activist, Vikas Pandey has filed a civil defamation suit against him. Vikas Pandey is a software engineer by profession. He runs a popular social media page, “I Support NaMo”. The page has huge following and is liked and followed by millions of people on Twitter and Facebook. While Dhruv Rathee is a pro-AAP Youtuber who has been caught spreading fake and misleading news several times. His propaganda is centred on bashing Prime Minister Modi and he seems to be a proxy who has been set up by a certain political party. He seems to be doing the dirty job of making unsubstantiated claims and spreading fake/ misleading news on the behalf of his political masters.

In a Youtube video, Mahavir Prasad and Dhruv Rathee tried spreading fake and misleading information about the BJP IT cell. It was claimed that Vikas Pandey is a member of the BJP IT cell and Mahavir Prasad claimed to be an ex BJP IT cell member. Thereafter, in a follow up video it has been alleged that Vikas Pandey had offered a bribe of Rs. 50 lakhs to Mahavir Prasad in order to defame Dhruv Rathee. Dhruv Rathee also claimed that he asked Mahavir Prasad to download an app in order to record calls. The basis of all his allegations is the ‘recording’. However, in a follow up Rathee regretted that he does not have the recording of the ‘Rs. 50 lakh bribe offer’. It is astonishing that the Youtuber went on to make such allegations even though he has no proof to back his claims.
Dhruv Rathee also alleged that Abhishek Mishra (a staunch social media Congress supporter) was used by Vikas Pandey in order to offer a bribe to Mahavir Prasad. However, in the call recording between Abhishek Mishra and Mahavir Prasad, there is nothing to suggest that Vikas Pandey made an offer of bribe to the pro-AAP Youtuber. Dhruv Rathee admits in the video that he does not have sufficient evidence to back his allegations. He also claimed that he has been trying to find audio recording of the bribe offer for the last two months but could not find it. It is shocking that Rathee went on to make such sweeping allegations without an iota of evidence to prove the same.
Dhruv Rathee made yet another objectionable comment by asking Abhishek Mishra to confess and tell the truth about ‘Vikas Pandey and the BJP IT cell’ and also tell that they were out to destroy the nation. This is a direct attempt to tarnish the image of Vikas Pandey without any evidence whatsoever. The sensational title of the video as well as the misleading and unproved claims made therein go on to suggest that this was a naive attempt by Rathee to garner views and likes which has now landed him in deep trouble.
Vikas Pandey had already filed a police complaint in this matter and now he has followed that up with appropriate civil proceedings. It is clear that Vikas Pandey has taken it upon himself to teach Dhruv Rathee a lesson for the baseless, frivolous and fake allegations made against Pandey in Rathee’s video. It is indeed a welcome move on the part of Vikas Pandey as habitual offenders like Dhruv Rathee must be brought to justice for their mischievous activities.
