PM's Twitter handle rakes up controversy
New Delhi, May 20: The BJP seems to be miffed with the Prime Minister's office just days before BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will take the oath as the country's PM.

The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) on Tuesday changed the Twitter handle of @PMOIndia to @PMOIndiaArchive. This didn't go down well with the BJP who termed the move as ‘unethical and ungraceful.'

BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi said ‘what has happened with the @PMOIndia account is disgraceful.'

Many said that instead of archiving the account the PMO should've simply handed over the account to Narendra Modi or his team.

This move soon drew huge criticism on Twitter-

Meanwhile, former communications advisor to Manmhan Singh said that 'all our official communications are being archived according to the RTI Act. Copyrights and control remain with the office.'
