June 8, 2018: Within hours after former President Pranab Mukherjee gave a speech at the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) event in Nagpur on Thursday, morphed images of him giving an RSS-style salute emerged over the social media.


In the morphed picture, Mukherjee is seen wearing a black colour cap similar to that worn by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and other RSS officials. Furthermore, the morphed photo shows him raising his hand to his chest and giving a salute akin to the one given by RSS cadres.
Whereas in reality Mukherjee neither wore a cap nor did he give any salute.
Reportedly, responding to the circulation of the morphed pictures over social media - Mukherjee's daughter and Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee slammed the BJP-RSS over Twitter accusing the "dirty tricks department" and further reminded her father that she had cautioned him that the RSS will be resorting to things such as this.
In the Twitter post Sharmishta wrote: "See, this is exactly what I was fearing and warned my father about. Not even few hours have passed, but BJP/RSS dirty tricks department is at work in full swing!"
It may be stated that she vehemently opposed to the former president visiting the RSS headquarters and took to Twitter on Wednesday, 6 June, to express her disapproval of it.
She had said that by accepting the invite to address RSS cadres, he was giving the BJP and the Sangh a handle to plant false stories.
She had added that his speech will be forgotten soon but the visuals from the event will be remain and be misused.
Besides Sharmishta, other Congress leaders had also requested the former president to reconsider his decision to be the chief guest of the RSS event in Nagpur.
