The news article detailed the Twitter reactions to a post by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi. The CM had welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the city with a tweet which read: "Sheshavatar Bhagwan Laxman ki pawan nagri Lucknow mein aapka swagat aur abhinandan (Welcome to the city of Lord Laxman)."
