However, the reactions to the photo were not quite as he must have expected. Kamal Nath, in the photo, can be seen standing against a green background with a multitude of colours on his face. Through the day MP CM has been trolled by netizens who pointed out that his kurta was totally spotless.
At first, I thought it is a picture of some clown or from some fancy dress competition.
Then, I found that it was Kamal Nath, CM of Madhya Pradesh.
Than, I thought again, and felt that my first guess was correct.https://t.co/86OpjCbwDZ

What’s Wrong with the Image?
Many of the Twitterati said that though there were many colours on Kamal Nath’s face, his kurta was almost clean and spotless. Netizens wondered how Nath had managed to play so much Holi and yet keep his white clothes spotless, leading a lot of them to speculate that the colours on his face were, in fact, staged for the image.

Former CM Shivraj used to make it grand and pompous
While Kamalnath kept social media messaging an extremely private affair, Shivraj used to make it grand and make the celebration a people-centric affair. The image that is shown at the top is of 2018 when Shivraj was the chief minister of the state. He used to make sure to sing ‘faag’ that is local traditional Holi folk and most of the times himself tried a hand with Dhol and Harmonium along with his followers.
Although this time Chauhan did not celebrate Holi and formally put a board outside his residence that read, “We are not celebrating Holi in the wake of Pulwama terror attack and the demise of senior BJP leader and Goa CM Manohar Parrikar. Happy Holi to you all.” He only wished a plain #HappyHoli message on Twitter this time.
विद्वानों, महापुरुषों, वीरों की धरती बिहार के स्थापना दिवस की श्री @NitishKumar और नागरिकों को हार्दिक बधाई। राज्य का चहुंमुखी विकास हो, नागरिकों का जीवन धन, धान्य, वैभव से समृद्ध हो। मेरी अनंत शुभकामनाएं!
