'Resentment letter' to PMO

A “resentment letter” will be written to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for not inviting Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for a Nasscom event held in Bengaluru on Tuesday, said Law Minister T B Jayachandra.

Speaking to reporters after a State Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Jayachandra charged that the PMO had deliberately not invited Siddaramaiah for the event that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel attended.

“It is not just a breach of protocol but also an insult to the people of the State. Bengaluru has earned international fame as a global IT hub due to the contribution of the people here. The chief minister represents them and he should have been invited,” Jayachandra said. In a federal structure it was the duty of the PMO to invite the chief minister to the event attended by heads of States, he said.

Several ministers at the cabinet meeting insisted that a “resentment letter” be written to the PMO, he added.
