Ranchi: Days after Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was booed by the BJP activists during a rally attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren too faced a similar situation when hundreds of BJP supporters booed him on Thursday.

The Jharkhand CM had to face embarrassing situation while he was delivering a speech welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the tribal state.

Modi arrived here to inaugurate a project of Power Grid Corporation of India and announce the commencement of work of NTPC`s North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project (3X660 MW).

The BJP supporters were so loud with their pro-Modi slogans that Soren had to stop his speech for a while.

In order to silence the BJP cadre, the Jharkahnd CM said that the stage has some significance and its sanctity should be maintained.

Hooda`s reaction came after he was not allowed to speak at the foundation laying event here of 166 km Kaithal-Rajasthan border section of the National Highway-152/65.

Not just Hooda, Chavan himself had been by heckled by Bharatiya Janata Party activists at a function attended by Modi in Raigad.

But the decision to skip sharing dais with Modi was made by the senior Congress leaders after Hooda was booed by BJP workers at a stone-laying ceremony at Kaithal on Tuesday.

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi took a dig at the Congress saying that how would the grand old party ignore the `Modi mantra of good governance`.

Here`s what Naqvi tweeted:
