Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

A tweet criticising the Devendra Fadnavis-led was posted today by the official Twitter handle of the BJP's unit, with the party claiming that the account was hacked.

The tweet, which criticised the state government's policy towards job creation, was deleted but not before its screenshots went viral on

Written in poor English, the tweet had said, "More than 2 lackhs Employee required in state and @Dev_Fadnavis taken cut off 30% employees. #MakeInMaharashtra or #FoolInMahasrashtra."

The tweet had tagged Prime Minister Modi and some leaders, including Rahul Gandhi.

"We feel the state unit's Twitter handle was hacked to post this message. We have asked the Cyber Crime cell of the Police to investigate the matter," state spokesperson Keshav Upadhye told PTI.
