Governor of Tripura Tathagata Roy has made a major faux-pas by announcing on social media site that former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee had passed away. He has even paid a small tribute to the former PM. However, after realizing that his tweets is not coorect, he immediately re-tweeted, 'I am sorry I tweeted something upon being told by an all-India TV channel. I had taken it to be authentic. There has so far been no official announcement. I have deleted my tweet. Sorry again'. The 93-year-old Atal Bihari Vajpayee has been admitted in the All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences since 11 June, after he was diagnosed with a kidney tract infection.
