Farmers' stir: Fadnavis raises issue of celebs tweets, Deshmukh counters

Mar 02, 2021 18:49 IST | By Editorji News Desk

BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday trained guns at the Maharashtra government, alleging it was trying to probe icons like Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar over their pro-India tweets issued after some foreign celebrities Rihanna and Greta Thunberg talked about farmers' protest near Delhi. The state's Home Minister Anil Deshmukh promptly refuted the charge in the state Assembly, saying the state government has ordered a probe into tweets by the BJP's IT cell and not by cricketer Tendulkar and legendary singer Mangeshkar. Earlier last month, Deshmikh had said state intelligence department will conduct a probe into allegations that some celebrities were pressurised recently to issue tweets.
