Senior BJP leader Tarun Vijay says he has deactivated his Twitter account, “sacked the person handling his tweets” and filed a complaint with the police after a bizarre set of posts had him supporting Congress president Rahul Gandhi and appearing to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I have deactivated it (Twitter account). This can be a plot. I will live and die for (Narendra) Modi and Amit Shah. They are Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay and Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee for us small workers. My family and I work day and night for him. My family will die for BJP. No one demanded anything. It is a pre-2019 conspiracy. Please help me from anti-BJP elements,” Tarun Vijay told news agency ANI today.
It all started a little after 10 pm last night, when a tweet on Tarun Vijay’s timeline said no one has the right to comment on a person’s motive for going to a pilgrimage. The tweet apparently referred to his party BJP’s criticism of the Congress chief’s trip to Kailash-Mansarovar.
More tweets followed in a similar vein, and one said: “Those commenting, mocking at, Making cheap comments on Rahul’s Kailas Yatra are wrong. Not what a Hindu should do. it is is all between him and Shiva. None can be bigger than Shiva.”
Then came a tweet that has now been deleted. It was directed at a person accused by Mr Vijay of “arrogance” because PM Modi was behind them. It tagged an incorrect handle.
