As the elections are coming closer in Gujarat, the Congress is going astray in disputes. Days after Rahul Gandhi asked the Congress in Gujarat to respect the dignity of the office of the Prime Minister and stop its “vikas gando thayo chhe” (development has gone crazy) social media campaign, now Congress has thrust itself into the new controversy. A Twitter handle linked to the Indian Youth Congress posted a crude meme on PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday.

Meme Controversy

The Official Youth Congress online magazine “Yuva Desh” posted a meme mocking PM Narendra Modi as a “chai-wala.”

Yuva Desh tweeted a picture that portrayed a conversation between PM Modi, Us President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May. PM Modi asking them if they have seen the memes made up against him by his political opposition. Trump corrects his pronunciation of the word “meme”, while May asks him to go “sell tea”.

“I promise you in 21st Century Narendra Modi will never become the Prime Minister of the country. .. But if he wants to distribute tea here, we will find a place for him.” Aiyar said at the AICC meeting.
