Mumbai: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray said that the Centre should not have 'asked' Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar to tweet in support of the government in the campaign to counter tweets by foreign celebrities as they are now exposed to social media trolling.

"They (Tendulkar and Mangeshkar) are true legends in their fields, but otherwise very simple persons. They should not have been asked to tweet with the same hashtag. They tweeted what government asked them to tweet, and now they are at the receiving end," he said.

The leader said that the government has exposed Tendulkar and Mangeshkar to social media trolling by getting the icons involved in the campaign to counter tweets by foreign celebrities.
