“Dear PM, Intriguing news from Ministry of External Affairs! Please state – Who is the President of Donald Trump Abhinandan Samiti? When was the invitation extended to U.S President and accepted? Why is President Trump then saying you have promised him a grand event with 7 million people,” he asked.

 

“Dear PM, Why is Gujarat government then spending Rs 120 crore for a 3 hour event organized by an unknown private entity,” Surjewala asked on Twitter.

“India values its visiting dignitaries but please note – Diplomacy is serious government business and not a series of photo-ops and event management tactics,” the Congress leader said.
