Trinamool Congress spokesperson Saket Gokhale gets bail, arrested again

The party said it has sent a three-member delegation to Morbi following the developments. It tweeted, “BJP4Gujarat’s nefarious agenda is out again.” “Our national spokesperson @SaketGokhale has been arrested again without any good reason, moments after his release by the Gujarat Police.”

Stating that the democratic rights of the people are under threat, the TMC demanded his “unconditional release”.

Gokhale had tweeted, “RTI reveals Rs 30 crore spent on Modi’s visit to Morbi for a few hours. Of this, Rs 5.5 crore was purely for ‘reception, event management and photography’.”

The Press Information Bureau on Tuesday carried out a ‘fact check’ and tweeted that the information is fake. The news clipping appears to be from a local Gujarati newspaper.

An FIR was lodged against Gokhale on charges of forgery and printing defamatory material and he was arrested on 6 December.
The prime minister visited Gujarat on 1 November, a day after a colonial-era suspension bridge over the Machchu river in Morbi town collapsed, killing 135 people.
