Priyanka Sharma, who is the Bharatiya Janata Youth Morcha worker, was arrested following a complaint by Trinamool Congress leader Vibhas Hazra. Priyanka Sharma posted a morphed picture of West Benga CM Mamata Banerjee's face superimposed on Priyanka Chopra's MET gala picture.
Vibhas Hazra calls the meme as a most awful post. He said that Sharma had humiliated not just Mamata but also the whole culture of Bengal. An FIR was filed against BJYM worker at Dasnagar Police station for uploading a morphed picture on her Facebook page. As per rules, it violates community guidelines, Howrah City police's Cyber Cell said.
However, netizens couldn't stop pouring comments on the meme saying that they can feel the pain of Priyanka Sharma who has been arrested for sharing a meme on Mamata. One user said - 'Just imagine what her family is going through right now. What if this happens with your daughter or sister?'
Also, Tejasvi Surya, who is the BJP's nominee for Bangalore South Parliamentary Constituency, expressed similar feelings and recalled how one of the Congress workers had posted a morphed image of Narendra Modi earlier with a Hitler moustache.
