Noted Indian historian and writer, Ramchandra Guha have been a critic of Modi government for a long time. Time and again, we see how he gives his opinions on matters of political issues, sports matters and social importance. While some of his comments make valid points but at times, he is being slammed for talking about some political issues.
Most recently, he mocked the rise of Narendra Modi in the India to be the most dramatic event of the decade. Although he said that he praises Modi government for its work for the nation, he often accused PM Modi and said that he is worried that India is becoming a “Hindu Pakistan” which obviously did not go well with the people.
Now again, Guha had accused Modi of self-promotion in a tweet posted on Monday. However, Modi supporters trolled him back after he tweeted against PM Narendra Modi.
He referred to an article in which it was said that according to RTI, the Union government has spent more than Rs 1,100 crore in two and a half years (from June 1, 2014, to August 31, 2016) on advertisements featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Taking this point as a good chance, Ramchandra Guha started to troll Modi by taking subtle dig calling Pradhan Sevak became the Pradhan Self-Promoter.
Here’s what he said:

However, Twitterati slammed the tweet and showed their support for PM Narendra Modi.
One user, in fact, commented that self-promotion is better than awarding self with a Bharat Ratna.
LOL ! Better than awarding Bharat Ratna to self 🙂

What’s disturbing you?
What is disturbing you, I don’t understand. For me, Modi is brand ambassador for govt schemes, n he is featured in govt ads. No wrong in it
