Pranab not informed about MP photo-op
The photo opportunity was for all MPs on the occasion of 60 years of Parliament’s first session.
New Delhi: In an embarrassing faux pas for the government, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee was not able to attend the photo opportunity for all MPs on Wednesday - to mark the occasion of 60 years of Parliament’s first session - because he was not informed about the same.
Sources said Mukherjee is upset about the episode.
The Lok Sabha Secretariat meanwhile said Mukherjee`s office was informed about the photo opportunity.
Mukherjee is the Leader of House in Lok Sabha and one of the most important members of the UPA government.
Surely, the government managers failed badly with Pranab da missing out an important occasion to get clicked and etched in memory.
