New Delhi:

Aam Aadmi Party leaders remain in news for all wrong reasons. This time it’s Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia who is grabbing headlines after anti-Anna Hazare tweets were re-tweeted from his Twitter handle. However, Sisodia has claimed that his account was hacked, saying someone was sharing posts against the veteran social activist.

“My account hacked. Someone retweeting anti Anna Hazare messages from account. Trying to delete them, not even getting deleted,” he tweeted.

“Pls don’t believe them. I have greatest respect for Anna ji. Can never say such things against him. Pls don’t believe them,” another tweet said.

Anna is the man behind the rise of Arvind Kejriwal. After Anna fought for a cause on national stage, most of the others who rose to prominence joined Kejriwal to form AAP.

Anna had came down heavily on AAP after the party’s debacle in recently concluded Delhi MCD elections. Now, this comes as a shocker that the tweets describing Anna as a ‘BJP agent’ have been retweeted from sisodia’s account. However, Sisodia later deleted the tweet that called Anna ‘BJP agent’.

Ever since Kejriwal launched the Aam Aadmi Party, Anna has been at odds with the Delhi Chief Minister. Hazare attributed the recent electoral defeats of the AAP to Kejriwal’s quest for power.

The Delhi CM has “dashed my hopes”, he had said, after the Shunglu panel report, that levelled allegations of gross abuse of power by the Delhi government, had surfaced.
