After massive traffic jams due to incessant rains causing floods all over Modiji's "Smart City", Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar blamed his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal for the situation in Gurugram.
Khattar said Arvind Kejriwal's non-cooperative behaviour caused (?) the traffic jams.
BJP spokesperson Jawahar Yadav backed the Haryana CM's claims saying a large chunk of water goes out from Gurgaon through the Najafgarh drain which flows through Delhi. And hence, Kejriwal is to be blamed!
Free advice for Khattar: If you don't want your city to be flooded, manage it better rather than passing the buck.
While his citizens were trying to swim their way home, Khattar was holding a Twitter QnA session.Massive flooding in Haryana's Gurgaon. Photo: Twitter
People reached home five-six hours later than usual after a 12-hour jam brought the city to a halt. As a result, schools have been closed for two days and Gurgaon Police has actually asked people from Delhi not to enter the city.
Many people - both online and offline - wished the BJP government focused more on improving the city's infrastructure rather than changing its name.
That has worked though as Gurgaon is now truly a tribute to the "Gurugram" of yesteryear.
As always, Twitter is the go-to place for irate citizens to vent out their anger. And angry they are!
A lot of them were in rare form with plenty of snark to throw at the BJP government.
Here are the best ones:

The situation got pretty bad and angry citizens started tweeting to Khattar, trying to hold him accountable for the lack of "Acche din" in the city:
