Amaravati, March 5 : At a time when numerous falsehoods and malicious propaganda is being propagated in Andhra Pradesh, especially on religion, Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday launched a fact checking website, https://factcheck.ap.gov.in/, to nip fake news in the bud.
“The main objective behind bringing this fact check website is to stop the spread of fake and malicious propaganda on social media,” said Reddy.
He said the government condemns false propaganda and highlighted that the website will showcase evidence and clearly identify how a fake campaign was started, along with the revelation of facts.
The chief minister said this initiative is aimed at curbing misinformation in the southern state.
He directed the state authorities to take action against malicious propaganda upon identifying the culprits behind the fake news.
“No one has the right to deliberately damage the reputation of an individual or the system with personal intentions,” noted Reddy.
