New Delhi, Nov 25: The Congress on Friday termed as ''doctored'' a video posted by the BJP IT cell head claiming that ''Pakistan Zindabad'' slogans were raised during the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Madhya Pradesh, and said there will be ''payback'' for such tactics by the ruling party's ''dirty tricks department''.

BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya posted a video of the Yatra in which former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath are seen walking and a voice purportedly shouting ''Pakistan Zindabad'' is heard towards the end of the 21 second clip.

''After Richa Chaddha's public application to join Rahul Gandhi's Bharat 'Jodo' Yatra, 'Pakistan Zindabad' (listen towards the end of the video) slogans raised in Khargon. INC MP posted the video and then deleted it after the faux pas came to light. This is Congress's truth...,'' Malviya tweeted.

Hitting back, Congress' general secretary in-charge communications Jairam Ramesh said a video ''doctored'' by the ''dirty tricks department'' of the BJP is doing the rounds to discredit the ''highly successful'' Bharat Jodo Yatra.

''We are taking the necessary legal action immediately. We are prepared for such tactics, and there will be payback,'' he said on Twitter.

In another tweet, Ramesh also alleged that the Madhya Pradesh government ''intimidated'' and aggressively prevented tribal families displaced by the diamond mining project in Chhatarpur district from meeting Rahul Gandhi this afternoon.

''This is democracy-BJP style,'' the Congress leader said.
