NEW DELHI: The importance of comma has once again been proved, thanks to a tweet by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
While Modi launched a fierce attack on Congress in the Parliament on Wednesday, the Prime Minister's official handle tweeted: "Let us work together in providing the poor quality and affordable healthcare: PM," the tweet read.

The lack of a comma after 'poor quality' completely changed the meaning of the sentence.
And as expected, Twitter went on an overdrive immediately after the tweet was posted.
