However, PM Modi’s tweet met with rather criticism on the social media platform. One of the users on the platform noted that the PM’s tweet lacked the details. The user also claimed the tragedy at TRP Gaming Zone to be “man made”. It added that eight more kids are still missing, while the rescue operations are underway. “First of all: when was the last mandatory safety check done? Dismiss those responsible. Not just the lower level officials,” read the tweet.
