A three-member panel has been constituted to probe a complaint by the BJP District President Jayant Sinha on Monday, 3 June. Sinha has alleged that he received WhatsApp forwards which had objectionable messages against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath.

The messages were forwarded from a WhatsApp group with teachers and staff of a government inter-college in Azamgarh as members, reports The Indian Express.

The BJP President complained to V.K Sharma, District Inspector of School, Azamgarh, who then formed the committee to conduct the inquiry.

“On Saturday, I got a complaint from Jaynath Singh stating that objectionable comments about the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister were made in a WhatsApp group with teachers and staff of Rajkhiya Balika Inter College at Bagwar area in Azamgarh.”
V.K Sharma, District Inspector of School, Azamgarh

He also said that the administrator of the WhatsApp Group was the acting principal of the college, Ranjan Devi who had created the group to share college-related information with the staff.

The three-member panel includes two principals of different government inter-colleges and a lecture to conduct inquiry, reports The Indian Express.

“I came to know about the matter after someone forwarded me those objectionable messages. I checked and found those messages were shared initially in the WhatsApp group in which teachers and staff of Rajkhiya Balika Inter College are members. I complained about it to DIOS seeking action against those who posted the messages.”
Jayant Sinha, BJP District President

Sharma has ascertained that action will be taken against those who are found guilty once the inquiry report is out.
