Delhi Confidential: Mixed Messages

Congress leader Milind Deora surprised some party leaders by putting out a tweet praising the Gujarat government.

On a day Jitin Prasada joined the BJP, Congress leader Milind Deora surprised some party leaders by putting out a tweet praising the Gujarat government. He commented on a tweet by the CMO which said the CM has in a sensitive gesture decided to waive property tax and fixed charge in electricity bills of hotels and restaurants hit by the pandemic. Deora said it was a welcome move for other states to emulate.
