In the complaint submitted to the Chief Election Commissioner, Telangana Chief Electoral Officer, and the state DGP on Wednesday, the BRS asserted that credible sources have provided information suggesting the involvement of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) in generating and disseminating “fake audio and video” content through the utilization of ‘deepfake’ technology and artificial intelligence.

The falsified content includes well-known BRS leaders such as KCR, K. T. Rama Rao, Minister Harish Rao, MLC K. Kavitha, and other party candidates contesting in the elections, as per the complaint.

Expressing concern, the BRS called for immediate action against the alleged unauthorized use of technology by the TPCC. The complaint voiced the anticipation that this manipulated content is likely to circulate on various social media platforms. It urged authorities to take necessary actions to identify and restrain the TPCC and its various handlers from creating and disseminating misleading content in media formats, including images, videos, and memes.

K. Kavitha, in a post on X (formerly Twitter), urged voters to stay vigilant, cautioning against the spread of fake news in Telangana. She emphasized the importance of verifying information before believing or sharing, stating that democracy thrives on informed choices, not misinformation.
