Javadekar faces criticism over Ramayan tweet

NEW DELHI: Union I&B minister Prakash Javadekar faced online criticism after posting a picture that showed him watching Ramayan on Saturday. He later deleted the tweet. The minister posted the photo and wrote, “I am watching Ramayana (sic), are you?”
Several people felt that the post was inappropriate at a time when many migrant workers were stranded on highways without access to food and basic necessities. Some Twitter users shared pictures of families who have been trying to reach their homes trudging hundreds of kilometres. Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha tweeted, “Dear @PrakashJavdekar: I hope before watching TV you had a hearty breakfast served to you. I hope your AC is working fine. Enjoy Prakash Ji! Enjoy! #MigrantsOnTheRoad #migrantworkers.”
