Kolkata: We all know about the menace of trolls on Twitter, how people hide behind fake accounts and hurl abuses and unfounded allegations at people to malign their reputations.
Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee yesterday fought back one such troll in the way it should be done – by simply sticking to the truth.
A troll had alleged yesterday that he was doing politics with rape. Abhishek Banerjee answered directly on Twitter, asking the troll to simply come face-to-face to hear the truth and clear all doubts, instead of “hiding behind a mask using a fake identity to promote someone else’s agenda”. However the troll refused, proving the nefarious agenda.
In fact, after a few hours, he replied once again to the same troll, to another baseless allegation. He said that he had waited all day but all in vain. He challenged the troll thus:
“I waited for you all day Sir. Will again wait for you tomorrow. Come out of Che Guevara Mask your hiding behind. Economy hv become Cashless and Bhakts have become Faceless. May god bless you.”
The troll has still not responded to the challenge. Abhishek Banerjee has bravely shown how a troll can be unmasked, keeping one’s self-respect intact.
