Maha govt to probe tweets posted by celebs following singer Rihanna's comments on farmers protest

Pop-superstar Rihannas viral tweet supporting the farmers has caused a stir in India. The Maharashtra government has announced that it will investigate pro-India tweets posted by Indian celebrities following singer Rihanna's comments on the farm laws. 

There was series of tweets after MEA's response to Rihanna's tweet. If a person opines on their own, it's fine but there's scope of suspicion that BJP could be behind this...Spoke to HM Deshmukh. He has given orders to Intelligence dept to probe, said Congress leader Sachin Sawant. 

"It has been revealed that there were same posts by celebrities and at the same time. Hence it will be investigated why it has happened", Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has been quoted as saying.

As per reports, this step has been taken following a complaint by the Congress. The Congress reportedly had demanded an investigation into whether the BJP had pressurised the celebrities to post their tweets.

Many eminent celebrities like Lata Mangeshkar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Akshay Kumar had tweeted in support of the Indian government.
