Indian National Congress President Sonia Gandhi is scheduled to unveil the commemorative plaque and dedicate Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology to the nation at a government function to be held in Kottayam on Wednesday evening.
Inaugural address by Smt.Sonia Gandhi & placing her above CM is definitely breach of protocol & an insult to Kerala pic.twitter.com/5Ss4dHcdZyâ€” KummanamRajasekharan (@Kummanam) December 30, 2015
Kummanamâ€™s tweet accompanied by a photo of the invitation card questions how Sonia Gandhi -a Member of Parliament- could deliver the inaugural address at a function where the state Chief Minister would be present.
The BJP says this should be seen in the light of the Congress party making a hue and cry over the recent invitation row which erupted over the withdrawal of the CMâ€™s invitation by SNDP chief Vellapally Natesan to the unveiling ceremony of R Shankarâ€™s statue by PM Narendra Modi.
