TMC has not specified the tweet over which the spokesperson has been arrested. However, the fact-checking unit of the government highlighted a tweet made by Gokhale. The tweet carried a newspaper clipping, which read “RTI revealed the PM’s visit to Morbi cost  ₹ 30 crores”. On December 1, a fact-checking activity by the Press Information Bureau stated that the claim was ‘fake’.

On October 30, a 143-year-old bridge in Morbi collapsed. The collapse resulted in the death of over 130 people. The colonial-era bridge was closed for several months, as it was under renovation. Days after the completion of the process, the iconic tourist favourite bridge collapsed and resulted in havoc. 

TMC leader Derek O’Brien stated that the case is a ‘cooked up’ story and also termed the event as a ‘political vendetta’ by the ruling party. 

The governments of Rajasthan and Gujarat have not reacted to the issue. “I have no information. Nobody informed us.” said the Jaipur police in-charge Digpal Singh, when contacted by PTI.
