NEW DELHI: The Congress on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s inability to attend the Iftar party hosted by President Pranab Mukherjee raises a lot of questions and is sending a wrong message to the public.

“Prime Minister Modi not attending the President’s Iftar party raises many questions.  It is sending a wrong message to people. He could draw at least ten minutes for the occasion even if he is busy,” said Congress leader Rashid Alvi.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had earlier said that the Prime Minister Modi is preoccupied with important programs, and therefore, would not be able to attend the Rashtrapati Bhavan event.

“The Prime Minister is preoccupied with important programs. He has meeting with the Chief Ministers of North East states,” BJP leader Sushanshu Trivedi said.

The Prime Minister will chair a meeting with Chief Ministers from the North-Eastern states today, including Sikkim wherein important development projects related to these states and the entire North-Eastern region are likely to be figured. (ANI)
