New Delhi, April 30: The last day of April 2016 saw renowned television journalist Rajdeep Sardesai deleting his Twitter account after alleging that his social microblogging site was hacked by some miscreants.
Sardesai was known to be an active Twitter user and many a times, he was seen getting involved in heated exchange of words with people.
Sardesai and his journalist wife Sagarika Ghose, who is also an active Twitter user, faced backlash whenever they posted remarks critical of the BJP-led NDA government.
In January this year, Sardesai asked in a Twitter post: "The language used by @PMOIndia supporters on social media is appalling. why do supporters embarrass their leader? Who will rein them in?"
Since Friday night, a number of Twitter users accused Sardesai of responding directly to his critics via personal messages and also abusing them.
On Saturday afternoon, Sardesai said his Twitter account had been hacked. He tweeted, "How low will some people now stoop? Hack my account? Put out false messages? When will this end? Time to disable account. Enough is enough".
Another popular anchor Ravish Kumar, host of 'Prime Time' on NDTV India, decided to stay away from the microblogging site in August last year after being hounded by the Twitteratis.
