Speaking via his official Twitter handle, the former minister described the literature icon as one whose shoes the presidency is not worthy to lick.

He wrote:

“When he supported you in 2015 you hailed & praised him. Now that he has criticised you publicly about your handling of the COVID-19 pandemic you call him a “mere fiction writer” that “no-one should listen to”. That is a Nobel Laureate: a man whose shoes you are not fit to lick.”
