Sushil Modi and Narendra Modi

BJP MP and Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday got trapped for his tweet saying Narendra Modi is the only prime minister to have also served as the chief minister of a state.

His tweet about Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now become a topic of discussion on twitter and is getting more reactions than likes and shares. Many people corrected him with evidence while others described his knowledge as Whatsup University.

Speaking at a gathering of his party workers on PM Modi’s birthday, which falls on September 17, PM Modi said that the people sitting here might not know that Narendra Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat for 13 years then he became the Prime Minister. Overall, he has been serving the country for the last 20 years as a chief minister and prime minister.

After Independence, there has not been a single prime minister in the country who has served as the chief minister as well as the prime minister, Sushil Modi claimed.

However, the factually incorrect statement of Bihar’s former deputy didn’t go down well with the tweeple who schooled him.

Sushil Modi later tweeted that Narendra Modi was the only prime minister to serve as a chief minister for 13 continuous years and then as the prime minister for seven years.

Narendra Modi is, in fact, the sixth prime minister who has also served as a chief minister while Morarji Desai was the first prime minister who was also a chief minister.  

Desai assumed the charge of prime ministership in 1977 after serving as the chief minister of Bombay Presidency in 1952.

Chaudhary Charan Singh, who became the prime minster in 1979, was the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh in 1967 and VP Sing, who became the prime minister in 1989 was the UP chief minister in 1980.

PV Narasimha Rao served as the prime minster from 1991 to 1996 after becoming the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh from 1971 to 1973. HD Deve Gowda, who became the prime minister in 1996, was elected as the chief minister of Karnataka in 1994.

In Rajiv Nagar, 70 houses were demolished by bulldozers. The local people clashed with the police administration due to the order of demolishing 70 illegal houses.

According to the reports, when police and anti-riot force started moving bulldozers on the houses, the residents and the local people also stood up with bricks and stones in their hands.

The reason for the displeasure of the local people is that the CO and government employees of the area took no action when the houses were being built and the area was being settled.

One of the locals said, “when the houses are already built, then why the bulldozer is being run by the administration to remove them.”

It has been clearly said by the Minister of Revenue and Land Reform, Ramsurat Rai that the government is not in a mood to be soft on the encroachers. So, on June 3, the administration reached Rajiv Nagar with about one and a half dozen JCB machines to demolish the illegal constructions in Rajiv Nagar of Patna (Bihar).
