With Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan choosing to skip Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s function in Nagpur Thursday, a war of words ensued between the Congress and the BJP as they accused each other of undermining the democratic system.
Chavan issued a statement Thursday morning expressing his inability to share the dais with Modi. However, he thanked the Centre for sanctioning the Nagpur Metro and viability funds for the project.
In a sharp retort, state BJP president Devendra Fadnavis said: “It is extremely unfortunate that the chief minister has decided not to attend the Prime Minister of the country who has arrived in the state to conduct the bhoomipujan of development projects.”
Referring to the hostile crowd at a function in Solapur where Chavan shared dais with Modi, he said the CM should “know the mood of the state”. “CM sir pls know d mood of d state. U choose not to attend Prog with @narendramodi ji, now ppl will elect a CM who works for his dream India,” Fadnavis tweeted.
