Dr. Madhu Thottappillil’s Apoligize

After this Tweet Dr. Madhu Thottappillil has made an apologize via twitter “On 16th June, I had put out a tweet, and after I realised that the words used by me was inappropriate and unintended. I deleted the same. But by then there were screen shots of my tweet being circulated and shared in social media. It was never my intention to belittle the great and herculean efforts taken by our Honb’le prime minister and the Govt in taking care of all the citizens obligations of this great nation and its Army or our brave Martyrs.

I have always respected the efforts of the govt in its valiant war on covid-19 pandemic armed forces and valour of the armed forces standing and fighting under adverse conditions. I regret the hurt and anguish I may have caused to many people who read my Tweet and wholeheartedly apologize for the same. I have tweeted inadvertently and mistakenly and it has nothing to do with my association with any individual or organisation.

I am aware of the care bestowed by the Honb’le prime minister taken for the martyred jawans who had laid their lives for the country , without whom we the citizens would not be having a secured life. I hope the whole issue is put to an end and the tweet be treated as an aberration on my part. I once again express my sincere apologies for the unintended and inadvertent remarks made in my earlier tweet. #jaihind Dr. Madhu Thottappillil” his twitter post reads.
