A political blamegame broke out on Twitter on Thursday (July 27) as Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot tweeted claiming that his pre-scheduled speech to welcome PM Modi was removed from the programme by PMO. However, the Prime Minister's office tweeted back saying that it was Rajasthan Chief Minister's office which said that it would not be able to attend the programme and said that the Rajasthan CM was most welcome to join the programme. "Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, today you are visiting Rajasthan. Your office PMO has removed my pre-scheduled 3-minute address from the program, so I will not be able to welcome you through speech, so I heartily welcome you to Rajasthan through this tweet," tweeted Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in a long post.
PMO tweets and responds to CM Gehlot's claims
"In accordance with protocol, you have been duly invited and your speech was also slotted. But, your office said you will not be able to join," the PMO tweeted.
