Dr Swamy’s ‘U Turn’: Typo or ‘call from above’

Subramanian Swamy just scored a major victory yesterday after Sasikala was convicted and was showered praises by his many supporters. But the utopia was short lived and today he was embroiled in somewhat of a controversy when he tweeted that Mayawati might pull off a Donald Trump to win the UP state elections:

This tweet (now deleted) did ruffle a few feathers as many were surprised that a senior BJP leader and someone of the stature of Dr Swamy was openly predicting that rival Mayawati would win the important UP election even when the voting isn’t complete. Though about an hour after tweeting it he clarified that it was an oversight and he had actually wanted to write NaMo instead of Mayawati.

The people on social media as usual were ready with reactions:

The Jury’s still out on this one:

Some people asked for a bit of a leeway for Dr Swamy based on his age:

One reminded Swamy of another embarrassing incident:

True, if anybody can put out such a clarification its Swamy

Knowing the unpredictable Dr Swamy, this “oversight” could well even be a form of trolling, but whatever might have been the reason, it can’t be denied that he handled the whole issue with grace. A couple of Days back AAP leader Somnath Bharti was embroiled in a similar incident when he put out a tweet praising Modi. But rather than sticking to his guns or providing a plausible answer, he proceeded to claim that his account was hacked.
