International pop star Rihanna tweeted about the farmers’ agitation at the borders of Delhi and discussion started across the country. After this, many players as well as Bollywood celebrities tweeted saying outside forces trying to divide our country by tweeting and appealed not to let that happen. However, this time the tweets of some celebrities were the same and many raised eyebrows. Opposition is accusing the Modi government of pressuring players and celebrities to tweet. Meanwhile, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has said that the Mumbai Police will investigate the tweets of celebrities.
The issue of celebrity tweets from Congress was raised during the zoom meeting. The Congress demanded that information be received about the pressure on celebrities. Anil Deshmukh has informed that the intelligence department will investigate the matter.
Minister Anil Deshmukh orders probe
Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant told ABP news, “If anyone is expressing their views on an individual level, there is no reason to object.” But looking at the timing and language of the tweet, was it done according to the BJP’s script? This raises doubts. The words in Akshay Kumar and Saina Nehwal’s tweets are similar. Sunil Shetty’s tweet also mentions a BJP office bearer. So was this done according to the BJP’s script? This creates suspicion.
“At the national level, there is a lot of pressure on the constitutional institutions as well as the opposition governments. Anyone who opposes is put under pressure. They may also be under pressure from the same background. It is the responsibility of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government not to work under pressure and to speak fearlessly if it wants to speak. The Modi government may be doing this and it is likely to do so, so we demanded an inquiry. Recognizing its seriousness, the Home Minister has ordered an inquiry, ”said Sachin Sawant.
