[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]BJP slams Congress for Youth Congress tweet mocking Narendra Modi’s ‘chaiwala’ past, Congress apologises and deletes tweet

In a tweet reminiscent of senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar’s blunder during the Lok Sabha 2014 elections when he had mocked Narendra Modi for once being a tea-seller, the Indian Youth Congress on Tuesday repeated the gaffe by posting on Twitter a meme that mocked the Prime Minister’s ‘chaiwala’ past.

The tweet has now been deleted after the BJP used it to, as it did in 2014, launch a broadside against the Congress party for being “anti-poor” while leaders of the Congress and its youth wing have apologised for the meme and claimed that it was posted by volunteers and wasn’t officially sanctioned by the party.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The meme, posted on the official Twitter handle of the Youth Congress online magazine Yuva Desh, showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May in conversation.

The quote bubbles in the meme showed Modi telling the two world leaders: “Aap logon ne dekha vipaksh mere kaise kaise maimai banvata hai?” While Trump is shown correcting Modi, saying the word is pronounced as ‘meem’ — “usse maimai nahin, meem kehte hain”, a serious-looking British Prime Minister is seen telling Modi to go and sell — “Tu chai bech”.

The tweet can be seen as a profoundly avoidable self-goal by the Congress party just at a time when it was seeing a perceptible revival of its political fortune in Gujarat – the home state of Narendra Modi – weeks before the state goes for its high-stakes Assembly elections.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Predictably, the BJP has turned the tables on the Congress by using the meme to charge the Grand Old Party with being “arrogant”, “anti-poor” and “classist”.

Although Narendra Modi has so far maintained a studied silence on the attack, the tweet triggered protests and counter-attacks from senior BJP leaders like Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and JP Nadda and Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani. Given his style, Modi is expected to rake up the issue while campaigning in Gujarat – brandishing the meme as evidence of how the Congress has ‘insulted’ the pride of Gujarat and ‘humiliated’ the poor.

Evidently, those managing the content posted on the Yuva Desh twitter handle failed to learn anything from the blunder that Congress veteran Mani Shankar Aiyar had committed in the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. At a Congress function, Aiyar – known for his witty and often crude attacks against Modi – had told reporters that “if Modi wants, he can come here (at the venue of the function) and sell tea.” The comment was immediately picked up by Modi and the BJP to attack the Congress leadership during campaigning for the general elections and was believed to be one of the key reasons that gave the BJP a chance to project the Congress as a “classist and anti-poor” party before the masses.

The timing of the meme – coming as it does just weeks before Gujarat goes to polls for the first phase of its Assembly election due on December 9 – could not have been worse.

While scores of BJP leaders, their sympathizers and the saffron party’s IT cell chief Amit Malviya are known to have made far more obnoxious attacks on the Congress and its leaders through Twitter and public speeches, the Yuva Desh meme is something that the Congress could have avoided for two key

in recent months, the Congress – especially party vice president Rahul Gandhi – had emerged as a ‘star’ of sorts on Twitter with witty attacks against the BJP which unlike the tweets by saffron party leaders and sympathizers were largely based on facts or puns and not pure filth, abuse or threats. By raking up Modi’s ‘chaiwala’ past, the Congress has stooped to the same level as the BJP on social media, thereby endorsing the belief that ultimately the rhetoric of both the parties is not really different.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, the Congress lacks any leader that can take on Modi when it comes to political ‘spin-doctoring’ and street-smart campaigning. Modi is known to have used the worst of abuse and attacks hurled at him by the Congress – Sonia Gandhi’s ‘maut ka saudagar remark’ and Aiyar’s ‘he can come and sell tea here’ jibe being two such incidents – to his advantage; using them to project his humble, ‘garib ka beta’ beginnings.

Incidentally, the Yuva Desh meme came on a day when the Congress and other Opposition parties were hitting out at the BJP over the saffron party’s Bihar unit chief Nityanand Rai’s comment made in Patna wherein he had urged people to ‘break, and if needed, chop any finger or hand raised against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’. By posting a meme that mocks Modi for his humble past, the Congress has shown that it is no different from the BJP’s when it comes to polluted poll rhetoric.

Whether the meme will cost the Congress dearly in the Gujarat polls and dent its prospects of making incremental electoral gains in a state where it has been out of power for the past 22 years is something that will emerge only when election results are declared on December 18. But, until then it is clear that the BJP won’t let the Congress brush the gaffe aside and instead extract it for maximum political mileage.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj says a conspiracy is underway for slow death of Arvind Kejriwal

Saurabh Bharadwaj also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is being pushed towards a slow death inside Tihar jail as he is being denied insulin and consultations with his doctor.  AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj told the media that Arvind Kejriwal, who is suffering from Type-2 diabetes, has been asking for insulin and a video conferencing with his family doctor as the jail administration is not allowing him to do so.

Bharadwaj said he wants to say with full responsibility that a conspiracy is underway for the slow death of Kejriwal. He said his claims were on the basis of blood sugar readings of the Delhi Chief Minister in jail. He also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

On Friday, the Delhi chief minister’s council Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Kejriwal has not been administered insulin to control his sugar levels since his arrest, and termed it alarming and shocking. The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday claimed before the court that Kejriwal has been taking high sugar intake by consuming foods like mangoes and sweets every day, inspite of the fact that he was suffering from Type-2 diabetes, to create grounds for medical bail.

Kejriwal refuted the claims of the Enforcement Directorate by asserting before a court that the food he consumed was in accordance with the diet chart prepared by his doctor. Arvind Kejriwal confirmed that he only uses sugar free in his tea.

Bharadwaj further added that overall, it was a conspiracy to give a slow death to Arvind  Kejriwal so that his multiple organs get damaged and when he comes out of jail after 2-4 months he goes for the treatment of heart, kidney and other organs.
