Meira Kumar joined social networking site Twitter on Monday.
Days after Sushma Swaraj launched an attack on Meira Kumar by posting a video on Twitter, the Opposition’s presidential candidate has now joined Twitter herself.
Meira Kumar’s verified Twitter account handle @meira_kumar has 2,207 followers in the last 18 hours.
She wished everyone on Eid with the tweet: “Eid Mubarak! Joy, peace and prosperity to all”.
On Sunday, Sushma Swaraj shared a Youtube video of a Parliamentary session from 2013 where Sushma is seen slamming the UPA government for corruption.
In the video, speaker Meira Kumar asks Swaraj to cut short her speech.
Swaraj captioned the video: “This is how Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar treated the Leader of Opposition”.
Swaraj posted another tweet “Speaker interrupted Sushma 60 times in 6-min speech”.
On Monday, Congress responded to Sushma’s attack on Meira Kumar with yet another old video where Sushma can be seen praising Kumar for never losing her temper and ensuring the smooth functioning of Parliament.
