Not on Twitter, fake account opened in my name: Aiyar

NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Sunday said a fake and unverified Twitter handle was opened in his name and clarified that he was not on the microblogging platform.

“A fake, unverified Twitter account has been opened in my name and at least one message has already gone out on it,” he said in a statement.

“I am not on Twitter and never had been. These dirty tricks in the middle of important state assembly elections must stop now,” Aiyar added. (AGENCIES)
