Indian football team goalkeeper Amrinder Singh on Thursday (September 30) appealed to media houses and journalists to stop tagging him on Twitter amid rumors of former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh joining the BJP.
Footballer Amrinder Singh wrote on Twitter on Thursday (September 30), “Dear news media and journalist, I am Amrinder Singh, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team, not the former chief minister of Punjab state. Please stop tagging me.”
Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh also responded to the footballer’s tweet and also wished him all the best for the matches ahead. He responded by saying, “I sympathize with you my young friend, wishing you all the best for the matches ahead.”
Let us tell you that the Twitter handle of Amarinder Singh, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team is @Amrinder_1 and the Twitter handle of former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is @capt_amarinder. Both their accounts are verified by Twitter. This is the reason why people are getting such confusion.
After this tweet by footballer Amarinder Singh, social media users started making memes and jokes, which are now becoming very viral.
