Thereafter, Modi visited the site. Then Gokhale posted a tweet in which he had posted “screenshots” of purported news reports claiming Rs 30 crore was spent for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Morbi in Gujarat. Actually, it was found that no information had been sought under the RTI Act. He was arrested for trying to discredit Prime Minister Modi. Gokhale had tweeted that “RTI reveals that Modi’s visit to Morbi for a few hours cost Rs 30 cr. Of this Rs 5.5. Cr was purely for “welcome, event management, & photography”.

Editorial viewpoint

As India is a democratic country anyone can allege or criticise anyone. But it is necessary to punish those who try to discredit anyone by making false accusations !
