Bhubaneswar(PTI): Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today “strongly condemned” the language used in trolling of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Twitter.
Swaraj, a senior BJP leader, has been trolled and criticised by some on Twitter over the last week on a controversy involving issuance of passports to an inter-faith couple.
“Strongly denounce the vitriolic & intolerant responses to @SushmaSwaraj ji. She has been a leader in using social media to help common citizens of the country. Such conduct must be strongly condemned,” Patnaik tweeted.
The trolls started after the Ministry of External Affairs granted passports to a Hindu-Muslim couple and transferred a Lucknow Passport Seva Kendra official for allegedly harassing them.
Strong languages were used in those trolls and Sushma Swaraj was accused of appeasing Muslims.
