New Delhi: All Congress Chief Ministers are likely to skip events involving Prime Minister Narendra Modi, sources told CNN-IBN on Wednesday. The development comes after Bharatiya Janata Party supporters booed Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda during his speech at Modi's rally in Kaithal on Tuesday.
Sources added that Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan may also skip Modi's function in Nagpur on Thursday.
Hooda was left red faced as a hostile crowd hooted him at the function following which the angry Congress leader said he would boycott such events with PM. There was continuous hooting against the two-time Chief Minister of Haryana, which goes to polls in October, and pro-Modi slogans were raised, much to Hooda's discomfort.
Later, a fuming Chief Minister blamed BJP for the incident. Speaking to reporters, Hooda said that the BJP "has not done a right thing" with him. "I will not participate in any such function of the Prime Minister in future," he said.
Hooda said that it was an official function and the BJP has violated the "sanctity" of the occasion and added he will stay away from such events in future.
