A fake post with an ‘OTV logo’ is doing rounds on social media platforms about a candidate of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Dharmasala area of Jajpur. However, no such post on any of OTV's digital platforms has been either telecast or posted.

The fake post claims that a BJP leader has been announced as MLA candidate for Dharmasala.

Some people with vested interests have made such a post viral only to mislead the followers and viewers of OTV.

OTV requests people to not believe such fake posts without a reality check. Social media users are also requested neither to share nor to forward the post on social media. 

Making viral a fake post attributed to a reputed media house like OTV is punishable under the laws.
