Prasar Bharati ex-CEO tweets transformed PM Modi photo, suddenly | India News


NEW DELHI: Former CEO of Prasar Bharati Jawhar Sircar was red-faced on Monday after he tweeted a “transformed” image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for which he was called upon by his successor and incumbent Prasar Bharati chief Shashi Shekhar Vempati.
While Sircar deleted the image and accompanying tweet, Vempati tagged Sircar’s post, saying: “Disgusting and embarrassing… It is reprehensible that a former CEO of the public broadcaster is posting false images. We are embarrassed by these actions. ”
Sircar tweeted a photo of Modi bowing to greet Reliance Foundation president Nita Ambani. In his tweet, Sircar said: “I wish fellow MPs … would also receive such courtesy, from the prime minister with a permanent frown.” Twitterati, however, was quick to point out that in the original image, Modi was acknowledging social activist Deepika Mondol.
