But, Singh, who was a part-time worker with Kalam and a student of the Indian Military Engineering College, did not and started a new Twitter page by naming it Kalam Center, he said.
Singh had stolen information from Kalam’s twitter account and recorded them in the centre’s account, Dawood claimed.
This was illegal, hence the government should initiate action against Singh and also take steps to hand over the late Kalam’s Twitter account to his family, he said.
Abdul Kalam was running the account with over 20 lakh youngsters and students. Dawood said a representation in this regard had been made to the Defence Ministry, IT Ministry and to the police too.
