In that post, “I did not predict the Tamil Nadu election this time. This account is the only Facebook I use. I am only responsible for the comments that come in here. Some people deliberately take my photo on Google with misinformation and write their favourite comments according to their opinion and name it after me. I do not predict people will not believe anyone in it. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. Nothing written my name on YouTube or Facebook using my photo is true. Thanks for letting people understand that I will only post on my page if I predict.
If you fake it like this and do it in favour of your party as you wish it will really come as a fake result. Then you will regret it. ”

 

 

Political hoaxes and misinformation are being spread on social media in the run-up to the Tamil Nadu elections, even for teasing a common man.
