The idea of 'Twitter Townhall' seems to have backfired for Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani as Twitterati today trolled him for being unresponsive towards his own initiative.
Rupani had decided to host a first-of-its-kind interaction session today with the public on Twitter to respond to questions related to the state government.
The Townhall was scheduled to start at 10 am. However, till 12:30 pm no response from the Gujarat CM infuriated Twitterati. And this is when CM Rupani was trolled.
Twitter Town Hall was a phenomenal success. Such interactions strengthen democracy. I thank all the participants.— Vijay Rupani (@vijayrupanibjp) September 23, 2016
The Gujarat CM expressed his gratitude on Twitter and said the Townhall was a success. However, irked with his 'blatant lie', twitterati lost its cool and asked him when did he interact and how was it a successful interaction!

Some users were irked with this, some, however, praised the CM's initiative and some highlighted the state's problems.
