New Delhi [India], November 20 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Communications-in-Charge Jairam Ramesh alleged on Monday that senior ministers of the Modi government as well as PM's "favoured" businessman tweeted during the final of the Cricket World Cup that India's GDP has crossed the $4 trillion mark to "generate more euphoria" and "headline management".

"Between 2:45 pm and 6:45 pm yesterday, when the nation was glued to watching the cricket match, various drumbeaters of the Modi Govt including senior Union ministers from Rajasthan and Telangana, the Deputy CM of Maharashtra, as well as the PM's most favoured businessman, tweeted that yesterday itself India's GDP had crossed the $4 trillion mark," the Congress leader posted on X (Formerly Twitter).

In a tactic understanding, the Congress leader was referring to billionaire industrialist Gautam Adami, who is often labelled by the opposition leader of having "close links" with the Prime Minister.

"This was totally FAKE and BOGUS news meant to generate more euphoria and a pathetic attempt at both sycophancy and headline management," Jairam Ramesh alleged in his post.

On Sunday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the World Cup finale. The ultimate title clash was played between India and Australia at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. (ANI)
