A word war erupted on twitter after Karnataka Teachers Recruitment examination candidate had a picture of Sunny Leone on her admit card instead of her own. The state education department has ordered a probe into the matter.
Taking the matter to social media, Karnataka Congress social media chairperson BR Naidu blamed the state education department for falsely changing and printing the actor’s photo onto the candidate’s admit card.
“In the teacher’s recruitment hall ticket, instead of the candidate’s photo, the education department had printed the photo of Blue Film actress Sunny Leone. What can we expect from the party which watched blue films inside the assembly,” Naidu tweeted in Kannada along with the image of the admit card.

ಸದನದಲ್ಲಿ ನೀಲಿಚಿತ್ರ ವೀಕ್ಷಿಸುವ ಪಕ್ಷದವರಿಂದ ಇನ್ನೇನು ತಾನೇ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯ?@BCNagesh_bjp ಅವರೇ, ನೀಲಿಚಿತ್ರ ತಾರೆ ನೋಡುವ ಹಂಬಲವಿದ್ದರೆ ಒಂದು ಫೋಟೋ ನೇತಾಕಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ, ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ ಇಲಾಖೆಯನ್ನು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಬೇಡಿ! pic.twitter.com/Czb7W0d1xJ

In response to Naidu’s allegations, the state government refused the involvement of the state education department in the matter. “Candidate has to upload a photo. The system takes whatever photo they attach to the file. When we asked the candidate if she put Sunny Leone’s photo on her admit card, she said her husband’s friend uploaded her information,” the sate said.
After probing into the incident, the Karnataka Education Department has stated they would file an FIR to take the matter further.
