New Delhi, April 4: After V K Singh, now BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi has done the same. Threading on the line of Singh who skirted controversy with his tweets recently, Lekhi on Friday said that she "smelt a rat to obfuscate" the coverage of BJP's national executive meeting in Bengaluru .
Reacting over social media, she said, "Do I smell a RAT 2 obfuscate the BJP national executive meeting, attempts being made not to cover the meeting, instead cover some other inane issues?".

The statement which could snowballed into major controversy has once again revived memories of the row over union minister V K Singh's controversial tweets after his attending the Pakistannational day celebration at that country's high commission here last month when several Kashmiri separatist leaders were present.
In a separate post soon afterwards on the micro-blogging site twitter, Lekhi further said "response 2 my previous tweet shows D intent while 1 story is relevant as news, other S a discussion material, ?ing not Smritiji's but media emphasis."

Singh, a former army chief, after attending Pakistan Day dinner had posted a series of cryptic tweets, with hashtags 'Duty' and 'Disgust'. "
#DUTY The force that binds one morally or legally to one's obligations," read one of the tweets.
"#DISGUST To sicken or fill with loathing," said another of the tweet.
"#'Disgusted' to see how certain sections of the media are twisting this issue," he said late on Monday.
His tweets had raised eyebrows about their meaning--particularly whether he had expressed his unhappiness over being asked to attend an event where Kashmiri separatist.
The incident brought big embarrassment to Modi government. Later V K singh said that his tweets were taken in a wrong way. "I am fully committed to my party and my government and specially to the Prime Minister,' former army chief had clarified while reacting over the controversy.
