Congress scores ' self-goal' on Twitter; says Oops.. while admitting the goof up

New Delhi: In what could be an embarrassment for the grand old Congress, the party on Saturday posted an old video on their twitter handle in which people were chanting slogans against Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje at a public event claiming that it was taken at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Jaipur on  July 7th.

PM Modi was in Jaipur on Saturday to lay the foundation stone for 13 urban infrastructure projects and meet the beneficiaries of central and state-run public welfare schemes.

Over 2 min video was also tweeted by Divya Spandana, who handles Congress’ social media and digital communications strategy.

But, the video was not PM Modi’s July 7th rally as the video already posted in March on several YouTube channels.

Congress party admitted the Goof-up and tweeted saying:

“Oops..this video was taken in Jhunjhunu and not in Jaipur, where CM Vasundhara Raje and PM Modi were present, as the infighting between the BJP cadre broke out.”

Meanwhile, BJP Cyber Cell chief, Amit Malviya took a jibe at the Congress Party as he said that Congress scored a ‘self-goal on twitter’.
