Indian President, Pranab Mukherjee’s daughter, Sharmistha Mukherjee, has slammed her own political party, Indian National Congress.
The official Twitter account of Indian National Congress uploaded an old photograph of the President, Pranab Mukherjee along with former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi. However, the photograph’s caption had “Shree” before Rajiv Gandhi’s name, but not before the present President, Pranab Mukherjee’s name.
The caption of the tweeted photograph became the reason behind Sharmistha Mukherjee’s anger. She retweeted their tweet and slammed them. This is what she said,
At least have the courtesy to add ‘Shri’ before Pranab Mukherjee as he happens to be the current President of India https://t.co/7lsp0tfFec
