Is Maharashtra govt Mentally stable?’: BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Probe into tweets


PTI, Feb 8, 2021, 6:06 PM IST

The BJP on Monday slammed the Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra government after Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said the state intelligence department will probe allegations that some celebrities were pressurised recently to issue tweets in connection with the ongoing farmers’ protest. In a stinging attack, senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis termed the move as “disgusting and highly deplorable” and said the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) should feel ashamed while using the word “probe” for Bharat Ratna awardees.

He also said that it seems necessary to probe the “mental state” of those who demanded the investigation and those who ordered it. “Has this MVA Govt lost all its senses? MVA should feel ashamed while using the word ‘probe’ for BharatRatnas! Actually, now it seems necessary to probe the mental state & stability of the ones who made such demand & of people who ordered probe against our BharatRatnas!” Fadnavis tweeted.

Many celebrities including cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar and legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar rallied around the central government on social media using hashtags #IndiaTogether and #IndiaAgainstPropaganda following tweets by Rihanna and climate activist Greta Thunberg backing farmers who are protesting near Delhi border. Tendulkar and Mangeshkar are recipients of Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India.
