M.Lekhi, spokesperson of BJP and staunch backer of Modi in snoopgate finds herself embroiled in controversy. She is alleged to have leaked partially the name of Tehelka victim on twitter. First she denied flatly that she had named the victim. Then she said her account was hacked / misused. Meenakshiji if that is the case, have you made a police complaint. Why don’t you plainly accept your mistake and move ahead. It is a known fact that PR agencies handle twitter accounts of personalities and some unintentional goofups might happen. Section 228A of the IPC  makes disclosure of identity of the victim in certain offences a punishable act.

She received a notice from National Commission for Women (NCW) and she has reportedly replied why NCW had not taken any action when Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, Congress leader Alka Lamba and Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi had reportedly revealed names of victims in other cases in the past. She also claimed that the identity of the woman was in public domain even before her tweet and the tweet was removed immediately.

Lekhiji this is not the type of politics which Modi and BJP vouch for. Admit mistake move on. You can get away with it since earlier people had got away with it does not make a wrong thing right.
