A Twitter spat between FM Nirmala Sitharaman and Kiran Mazumdar Shaw


On a recent update of prohibiting e-cigarettes, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has been caught up by the twitter users once again. 

This time along with the tweet, the profile is also remarkable. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw tweeted in reference to the announcement which was supposed to be made by Health Minister. 

The Biocon chairman, a chief industry voice, had also raised other questions, like why the Finance Minister had not announced proposals to strengthen the economy.

It started with Kiran Mazumdar Shaw commenting on Twitter this morning: 


Nirmala Sitharaman reacted with a series of tweets, explaining that she had announced after the cabinet meeting as chairperson of a Group of Ministers.

Ms Sitharaman ended with a notice that she had been “regularly speaking about measures” on the economy. “As Finance Minister – you might’ve observed – I’ve been working on and regularly speaking about measures we’ve been taking on matters of the economy,” she wrote.

Replying to the Finance Minister, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw said: “I now understand and I stand corrected. Thanks for explaining my confusion. Grateful for your response.”

Over the past few weeks, the minister has been addressing regular press briefings to announce, in tranches, measures to boost the economy after a six-year low in GDP growth in the first quarter of 2019-20.
