Kerala CM Oommen Chandy Reacts To Invitation Controversy

A big political controversy has erupted between Kerala government and the Center over exclusion of Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy from a Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s event tomorrow.

In a series of tweet Chandy said that he considered the opportunity to participate in the statue unveiling an honour but felt extremely sad when he was told not to attend the function.

“I considered the opportunity to participate in the statue unveiling function of Shri #RShankar as an honour. I felt extremely sad when I was told not to attend the function by the organisers who invited me to the event,” tweeted the Chief Minister

He further tweeted saying that it is not a personal insult but Kerala was insulted when its Chief Minister was denied the right to participate in an event which the Prime Minister is attending.

“The statue unveiling is not a #BJP function, it is the 1st public event of #PM in #Kerala, denying #CM from attending is protocol,” said another tweet

However, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has dismissed the charge as “baseless” and said the decision to withdraw the invite to Chandy for the event in Kerala tomorrow was taken by SNDP, a social organisation which is hosting it, due to its “internal row” and the government had nothing to do with it.

Even a furious Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi targeted the Prime Minister and said that he has “insulted” the people of the state.
