Alleged fake video campaign for Suresh Gopi in the name of a pastor creates controversy

An alleged fake campaign video for National Democratic Alliance candidate Suresh Gopi in the name of a pastor has created controversy in the Thrissur Lok Sabha constituency.

The Bharatiya Janata Party is said to have used the video of Puthukkad Church pastor Paul Thekkanath for Mr Gopi’s campaign.

The video asks parishioners to stand together for Mr. Gopi in the elections, said Fr. Thekkanath. The priest filed a complaint with the cyber cell against the video on Thursday.
