"She then posted tweets, saying she had no knowledge about her portfolio and that a member of her staff, Rajesh Katiyar, had mistakenly put out the tweet, and that he would apologise for it."
New Delhi, May 27 - New union minister Uma Bharti committed a faux pas when she tweeted about the portfolio given to her - only to delete it later, saying she has no knowledge about her ministry as yet and that a member of her staff had mistakenly put out the tweet.

Bharti, who took oath Monday evening as a minister at the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, tweeted that she had got the portfolio of water resources and Ganga cleaning.

Realising that with the portfolio list to be officially declared, revealing the ministry could be breach of privilege, the tweet was deleted. But not before it had been noticed by the twitterati.

She then posted tweets, saying she had no knowledge about her portfolio and that a member of her staff, Rajesh Katiyar, had mistakenly put out the tweet, and that he would apologise for it.

Katiyar tweeted in Hindi, saying he had no knowledge about the portfolio given to Bharti and that he was apologising for the tweet.
