On Wednesday, while speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi castigated the Congress for obstructing his government’s policies.
People glued to their television sets saw Modi taking several digs at the Congress.
However, it was a tweet from the official PMO handle (run by the office and not Modi himself) that got several people talking on social media. Incidentally, the tweet once again proved why punctuation is so important.ant.
“Let us work together in providing the poor quality and affordable healthcare: PM,” the tweet read.
The lack of comma completely changed the meaning of the sentence.
What the Prime Minister meant was– “Let us work together in providing the poor, quality and affordable healthcare.” Instead, it read as if we should ‘work together’ to help in ‘poor quality’ healthcare.
Tweeple, quick on their feet, noticed the missing comma in the tweet and decided to give Modi some grammar lessons.
There is no use finding fault with the EVMs now when the party leadership committed a historic blunder with regard to the overall strategy in the elections. First, it should look within to find out reasons that stopped AAP’s march to power,” Chandigarh-based The Tribune quoted Mann as saying.
