HYDERABAD: BJP Goshamahal MLA T Raja Singh on Sunday denied allegations that Facebook had ignored hate speech rules for BJP leaders and clarified that his Facebook account was hacked in 2018.

Raja Singh said he had lodged a complaint with the police commissioner of Cyberabad and an investigation is on.He alleged that he is the target of a “hate campaign” spearheaded by the Owaisi brothers.

“Somebody is deliberately trying to project me as a dangerous person all over the world. A huge conspiracy has been hatched against me.
