Congress supporter claims proof of ‘good deeds’ by sharing letter of appreciation from rape accused

The Poonawala brothers of the Congress party aren’t known to be extremely bright. We reported earlier how they are not related to the billionaire businessman, Cyrus Poonawala. We also reported on how Tehseen, the older Poonawala brother deleted offensive tweets about Smriti Irani after being called out and how Shehzad defended his brother with ridiculous arguments.

As has become their habit, Shehzad, who is not related to the more reputed and Pune billionaire, Cyrus Poonawala, has seemed to make another gaffe.

Today, in a bid to prove how he rose through the Congress ranks on merit and not because of the brothers’ association with Robert Vadra, Shehzad plugged some old appreciation letters from fellow congressmen.

The letter that came under fire was this one by Congress leader Rohit Tilak who was in 2008 the President of Maharashtra NSUI.

Users pointed out that Shehzad was sharing an appreciation letter by a now rape accused.

Tweet exchanges followed :

While Shehzad was right in saying that the letter was from 2008 and Tilak got accused of rape only in 2017, given the seriousness of the charges against Rohit Tilak, one wonders if someone in the public sphere should be flaunting appreciation letters issued by him even way back in 2008.

The great-grandson of Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rohit Tilak was booked for rape and “unnatural sex” in July 2017. In August 2017, the complainant had tweeted to PM Modi and said political influence was saving Tilak from getting arrested. The complainant had also complained of getting ‘acid attack’ threats. Currently, Rohit Tilak is out on bail.

It begs the question : Do political figures have a greater responsibility and is it okay for them to flaunt letters by their party leaders who are now accused of grave crimes?
