Don’t lock horns with other parties on Twitter: Cong to its leaders
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: As the Congress and the BJP slug it out on social networking site Twitter over Uttarakhand tragedy, Congress on Monday advised its leaders to refrain from making any remark against other parties.
With the rescue operations nearing the final stage in Uttarakhand, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj demanded that the Uttarakhand government be dismissed for its handling of the situation there.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari had tweeted that the BJP has mindspace to criticise government on CBI autonomy proposals, but has no time to visit Uttarakhand.
With his tweet the war of words raged on, as BJP leader Sushma Swaraj hit back saying that the reason for not visiting Uttarakhand was to do with the public statement made by Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that any visit there by the dignitaries would hamper rescue efforts.
The Congress party’s media cell head then snuck in an opportunity to attack Sushma and tweeted that the BJP should not use the calamity as a political opportunity.
With which Sushma attacked the Congress again and tweeted, “Those who cannot govern in crisis do not deserve to be in the Government even for a day.”
