“Not mine but couldn’t help posting it”.
Digvijaya Singh is a member of Parliament from Rajya Sabha and General Secretary of the Congress Party.
However, in an attempt to shirk off the responsibility of the tweet, Singh captioned the meme: “Not mine but couldn’t help posting it”. So there is not need for any comment from the party.’ In a tweet earlier today, Mr Digvijay Singh tweeted a meme (image and a piece of text) using derogatory words against PM Modi. “BJP people should not teach me manners/values”, he said.
His party did not have much to add. “Digvijaya Singh has already spoken about it and clarified the issue. I think there is nothing further to add in the matter”, said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
Digvijaya Singh lifted a meme made by someone against PM Modi and posted the picture on his Twitter account. “These words are mine”, he told media on Friday. “While we fight trolls, PM Modi ignites them”, the Congress said. “These comments amount to insulting 130 crore people of India whose mandate is vested in the Prime Minister”, Mr. Rao said. “PM following someone is not a character certificate of a person and in no way a guarantee how that person would conduct himself”, BJP’s IT head Amit Malviya said on Twitter.
It needs to be noted that the picture with derogatory words on Modi and Digvijay saying thaty PM was “the best in art of fooling” are part of the same tweet.
