Fadnavis slams Maharashtra govt for ordering celebrity tweet investigation

The decision of the government of Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) to investigate 'identical' tweets posted by several celebrities on the protest of farmers came under opposition attack.

Hours after a probe of celebrity tweets was ordered by the state Home Minister, BJP leader and former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis slammed Anil Deshmukh for ordering an investigation into celebrity tweets on the stir of the ongoing farmers. Congress leader Sachin Sawant declared today that Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh gave the Intelligence Department orders to investigate the row of celebrity tweets on the issue of farmers. He also hit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for claiming that the ruling party intimidated national heroes.
