Here’s Why #PresidentRuleInMaharashtra Is Trending On Twitter Today


On Sunday, netizens trended #PresidentRuleInMaharashtra as the demand for President rule in Maharashtra gains mileage every day. The major reason behind this is speculated to be the detention of Republic TV’s Pradeep Bhandari.

The consulting editor of Republic TV, Pradeep Bhandari, was questioned by the Khar Police in Mumbai for five straight hours on Saturday. The questioning came after a case was lodged against Bhandari for obstructing police officers from doing their duty. Earlier last month, Bhandari had allegedly assembled a crowd outside the Kangana Ranaut’s house during the demolition. Khar Police had summoned Bhandari for questioning in the same matter.
