Bhopal September 5: Madhya Pradesh Police on Wednesday filed a chargesheet in a local court against a Congress MLA Kalpana Parulekar for allegedly morphing pictures of RSS Sarasanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat and Madhya Pradesh Lokayukta P P Naolekar with the intention of establishing the latter’s association with the Sangh parivar.

What is this ‘Morphing’ Case?
The allegation against Congress MLA Parulekar is that to prove that the ruling BJP had favoured Naolekar, a former Supreme Court Judge, in appointing the Lokayukta, she produced a doctored photograph of Naolekar which showed him in RSS uniform. For this, Naolekar’s photograph was morphed with that of RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat.
Congress MLA Kalpana Parulekar was arrested from Ujjian on February 2, 2012 year for allegedly morphing photograph of lokayukta Justice P P Naolekar with that of RSS Sarasanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat. The photograph was supplied to the assembly press room; it was also produced in the House during a no-confidence motion. Case was registered by CID.
In less than six months of having registered three cases, Lokyukta’s special police establishment (SPE) and criminal investigation department (CID) were ready to charge-sheet Congress MLA Kalpana Parulekar. She was arrested from Ujjian on February 2 this year for allegedly morphing photograph of lokayukta Justice P P Naolekar with that of RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat.
“We are waiting for sanction to prosecute the co-accused. The chargesheet will be filed soon after we receive it,” superintendent of police (SP) (SPE Ujjain unit) Arun Mishra said on October 2012.
Parulekar – sitting MLA from Mahidpur- was booked along with 10 others in two different cases (45/12 and 46/12) in February this year. In the first case, she was accused of installing 40 solar energy street lights at her own land instead of public places. A sum of Rs 3.85 lakh was released from the MLA’s constituency development fund for those lights. Case under section 13(1)(D), 13 (2) of Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act was registered against the MLA and seven others including S C Gupta – the then planning and statistics officer (Ujjain), Goverdhan Lal Malviya – the then Janpad CEO and B K Bagul- assistant engineer Mahidpur.
In the second case, Parulekar was accused of using MLA’s fund (Rs 4 lakh) for constructing roads on her and her brother’s land. Charge-sheets are ready in both cases, said the SP.
Meanwhile at CID headquarters, a three-hour long meeting was held on Wednesday to decide upon the final procedural formalities for Parulekar’s chargesheet in the morphing case. She was arrested from Ujjian on February 2 this year for allegedly morphing photograph of lokayukta Justice P P Naolekar with that of RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat. The photograph was supplied to the assembly press room; it was also produced in the House during a no-confidence motion. Case was registered by CID.
“Our charge-sheet is almost ready, would file it soon,” M R Krishna, additional director generalof police (ADG) CID told in October, 2012.

RSS and affiliated organisations will have to evolve common strategies to tackle this menace from MSM and other anti Hindu groups.One is to have a common legal cell to render help to ALL affiliated organisations.Such slender campaigns should not be allowed to go unchallenged.Second is to strengthen its own print and electronic publications and involve larger number of cadres in social media.That way VSK is a way forward.You will have your hands full!
