Yogi vs Modi rumour ahead of UP elections!
Is all well between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath? Speculations ran rife on Twitter, after a radio silence from the PM's social media handles on the occasion of his CM's birthday on Saturday, June 5.
Twitterati were abuzz at the fact that PM Modi, who doesn't miss out on extending congratulatory messages to not just leaders in India but his foreign counterparts, failed to tweet a customary birthday greeting to CM Yogi this year.
The "missing birthday wishes" added fuel to the rumours that there are tensions in the saffron party, months ahead of a high-stakes assembly election. There have also been reports that the BJP top brass in Delhi is struggling to quell dissent against the UP chief minister.
