Read how Congress regularly plagiarises and steals content

In a major embarrassment for Congress, cartoonist Satish Acharya has accused Congress of using his cartoons without permission and removing his signature. Karnataka unit of Congress had put up posters in local language, which were Acharya’s cartoons with a caption in Kannada. However, not only did they not take his permission to use them commercially, they even removed his signature from the cartoons and used it as their own.

This is not the first time Congress has done this. Earlier, Manjul, another cartoonist had accused Congress of mutilating his cartoons, that too without his permission.

Congress media cell are serial plagiarists when it comes to lifting ideas and concepts. Congress tried to copy BJP’s #KnowYourGovt strategy to speak about the government and various initiatives by bringing about the #KnowYourLegacy campaign. However, it failed badly as Congress has been trolled multiple times for the goof up galore of the IT cell. We had also reported how the idea of “Indira canteen” in Karnataka may have been directly lifted from the food subsidisation programme run by Tamil Nadu Government, “Amma Canteen”, which Rahul Gandhi inadvertently ended up crediting.

In an even more hilarious copy-cat instance, Gujarat Congress, which is harbouring hopes of revival in Gujarat, seems to have borrowed their tagline, “Congress Aave Chhe” from a cooking oil brand, Pankaj, which had the tagline “Pankaj Aave Chhe”, months before Congress came up with the tagline. Earlier, too, Congress had ‘copied‘ the ‘Main Nahin, Hum’ tagline of Gujarat government chintan shivir during their 2014 campaign.

Not only media cell, even former ministers from the UPA have been accused of plagiarism. The Hindu had published an article ‘From welfare to paternalism’ by Veerappa Moily, on June 11, 2015, which they had to withdraw after charges of plagiarism were put on Moily. As reported, several paragraphs under a subheading were copied from another article by G Sampath which was published on 26th May, 2015, ironically in The Hindu itself. Also speaks volumes about the editorial standards of the publication.

Seems like Congress steals not just our money, but also our ideas.
