Bengaluru: Well known television personality, and former MTV Roadies judge, Raghu Ram is facing a backlash from the BJP in Karnataka, which has called him an “on- camera bully and off -camera sissy,” for his tweet against its recent “hate” post on its official page
The BJP tweet that got Raghu Ram all riled up reads, “Our karyakartas get constant phone calls from their families asking them about their safety. Hindus have understood that this govt will not protect them. Fear of annihilation grips every Hindu household in Karavali. Pro jihadi Siddu must go. We must create #JihadiMuktaKarnataka.” In response he tweeted, “ARE YOU F…..G SERIOUS???!!! This hate message is now going out from the official, verified bjp page?? Appalled at the hate language of official Karnataka bjp and their clear attempt at creating communal tension to polarize votes for electoral gains.”
The BJP hit back with, “Look who's here, the on- camera bully and off- camera sissy, who was ousted from a reality show for his anger management issues. If you have any sensitivity left, why don't you visit the kin of the 24 deceased karyakartas and know their pain before making loose talk on Twitter.”
Not to be outdone, Raghu Ram tweeted, “I’m so flattered you have time to tweet to me. It’s election time! … Come on! Focus! And as for me, read my bio. I love muting morons. Haha! Bye!”
The heated exchange saw both the BJP and Raghu Ram trolled on social media.
