Pranab’s daughter names, shames online pervert

New Delhi, Aug 13 (IANS) Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee, daughter of President Pranab Mukherjee, on Saturday named a man who sent her obscene messages on Facebook and vowed to fight such perverts.

“It was shocking to see such messages. And this kind of situation is being faced by thousands of women every day,” Sharmistha Mukherjee told IANS.


She said all the messages landed on her account on Friday from the account of a man who calls himself Partha Mandal.

“First I thought of blocking or ignoring him. Then I thought why should I feel ashamed of sharing such posts because I am not guilty,” she said.

“Such people will take advantage of silence. That’s why I chose to speak up.”

The Congress leader, who fought the 2015 assembly elections in Delhi, said she made her profile public after joining politics in order to get suggestions and complaints from people.

She said she will also lodge a complaint against Mandal with the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police.

“I don’t want any special attention from the police for being the daughter of the President,” she quickly added.

“The police must have many such cases. I just want the police to be strict with such people.”

Sharmistha Mukherjee also appealed to women facing similar problems to lodge complaints.
