Mumbai: In the wake of singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya making a controversial tweet in support of Salman Khan post his conviction in the hit and run case, Abhijeet’s driver has come forward and claimed responsibility for the tweet.
The Twitter handle @abhijeetsinger had earlier posted today: “Kutta rd pe soyega kutte ki maut marega, roads garib ke baap ki nahi hai I ws homles an year nvr slept on rd.”
Apart from bad spellings, it meant that poor people shouldn’t have slept on roads (though the victims were sleeping on footpath), because road didn’t belong to them, and that if one slept like dogs on roads, they die like dogs on roads.
Tadapit Kumar, the driver in question, claimed that he had tweeted from his employer, Abhijeet’s phone, as soon as he saw the news on Salman Khan’s conviction.
“I found Abhijeet sir’s phone and find this blue bird on it and then use it to send SMS to my friend about Salman bhai’s jailing. It is not Abhijeet sir who is doing this,” he clarified.
When asked about the shiny Rolex on his wrist, Tadapit replied, “I am buying this with my hard earned money. Not any gift Abhijeet sir has given me.”
Meanwhile latest news report suggest that Salman Khan’s driver has decided to appeal in Bombay High Court to get punished.
