Earlier on Monday, Sarma posted a manipulated video on his platform where his speech was distorted. While sharing the deceptive video on his platform, he asserted that there was a malicious attempt to manipulate his speech through this fake video.
He also expressed concern over vested groups with criminal intentions spreading false information and communal disharmony. "See for yourself, as elections approach, how vested groups distort a speech with the criminal intention of spreading disinformation and communal disharmony. The long arms of the law will catch up with these elements," Sarma said in an X post.
