New Delhi: Pranab Mukherjee's daughter and Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee late on Thursday accused the "dirty tricks department" of the BJP-RSS of circulating a morphed picture showing the former president raising his hand in salutation like the RSS leaders and cadre.

Sharmistha Mukherjee was vehemently opposed to the former president visiting the RSS headquarters and had publicly urged her father on Twitter to express her disapproval.

"See, this is exactly what I was fearing and warned my father about. Not even few hours have passed, but BJP/RSS dirty tricks dept is at work in full swing!" she said, responding to a tweet showing a "morphed" picture of Pranab Mukherjee doing the salutation along with RSS leaders and cadre at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.

Sharmistha had on Wednesday said her father was giving the BJP and the Sangh a handle to plant false stories.

The former president's official Twitter handle is @CitiznMukherjee.

Her outburst came soon after rumours about her joining the BJP cropped up ahead of Mukherjee's visit to Nagpur.

She dismissed such "rumours" of her joining the BJP as "false" and alleged they were the handiwork of BJP's "dirty tricks department". She said she would rather leave politics than quit the Congress.
