Congress social media head Ramya spreads lies, gets corrected by Twitter users

Kannada actor and Congress’ newly appointed social media head Ramya, who is also a former Lok Sabha member of Congress, posted a 1-minute video of BJP President and Rajya Sabha MP from Gujarat, Amit Shah addressing a gathering in Karnataka.

In her tweet, she claimed that Amit Shah committed a gaffe by attacking BJP itself:

This was shared by many who perhaps blindly trusted Ramya or deliberately ignored the content of the video. Apart from Congress supporters, an abusive Twitter troll who masquerades as a journalist, Swati Chaturvedi, also chimed in her amusement:

Sorry to be the party pooper here, but I’d like Congress President Sonia Gandhi to lend Ms. Ramya and Ms. Chaturvedi her Rapidex Hindi speaking course book so they could understand what Shah is speaking.

Alert Twitter users pointed Ramya her mistake, or rather, blatant lie:

Some claimed that this was a failed attempt at propaganda:

Twitter users pointed out to the troll-journalist too, that it would have been better if they had at least pointed out the correct mistake before mocking:

So yes, Amit Shah did have a slip of tongue, and he apologised and corrected himself, but it was not an embarrassing self-goal as Ramya and her gang would like people to believe.

Seems like this was done by the social media team of Congress to distract everyone from Rahul Gandhi’s gaffe in Bengaluru yesterday, by ‘proving’ that BJP leaders too indulges in gaffes. In fact, Ramya shared some other clips too trying to ‘neutralize’ Rahul Gandhi’s gaffes, only to be further slammed by users as she ended up mocking Gujarati accent:

But this doesn’t really come as a surprise when Congress’ new social media head is trying too hard. Recently, her attempt at politicising the Gorakhpur tragedy also backfired when a Twitter poll she undertook to attack Yogi Adityanath went the ‘wrong way’, with 61% of respondents supporting Yogi:
