Chandigarh, 26 December, 2013. Mr. Satya Pal Jain, Ex-City MP and National Chairman of the Committee on Legal and Election Commission Issues of the BJP, today filed a complaint with the Chandigarh Police regarding abnormal increase in ‘likes’ on his official Facebook Page.
In a written complaint to the Inspector General of Police, Chandigarh, Mr. Jain said that he has been maintaining his facebook page since March, 2009, whose number of followers/likes gradually increased from time to time and crossed 60,000 likes on 15 December, 2013. He said that his page received daily increase in likes ranging between 650-750 upto 23 December, 2013 but it received an increase of 2719 new likes on 24 December 2013 and 6039 likes on 25 December, 2013. He also stated that a very large number of these new likes seem to be foreign nationals from middle-eastern countries.
Mr. Jain expressed his apprehension that this sudden and abnormal increase in likes within two days, that too of foreign nationals, is a result of some spurious and illegal activities by someone, who wants to harm his image. Mr. Jain requested the IGP, Chandigarh to get the matter looked into, so that the miscreant can be traced and suitable action can be taken against him.
