Major Mistake: Governor Announces Vajpayee Is Dead, Then Deletes Tweet


Agaratala: When the nation prays for former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s speedy recovery then Governor of Tripura Tathagata Roy made a major mistake by announcing on Twitter that Atal Bihari vajpayee had passed away.

Tathagata Roy wrote a small tribute for Vajpayee on twitter, calling him a “silver-tongued orator” and a “very bright star on India’s political firmament”. After that faux made by governor, many critised him for his fault.

Later he apologised for his mistake and wrote on twitter that ”I am sorry I tweeted something upon being told by an all-India TV channel. I had taken it to be authentic. There has so far been no official announcement. I have deleted my tweet. Sorry again”

Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s condition continues to remain the same. He is critical and on life support systems.
