Congress social media head shares fake image of a newspaper in a bid to malign BJP

Congress Social Media head, Divya Spandana is known to use some rather questionable tactics in her quest to hand Congress a social media makeover. Today, she has gone a step further and shared a photoshopped image of a newspaper, ‘The Hindu’, in a bid to malign the BJP and the Prime Minister.

She tweeted an image of the newspaper ‘The Hindu’ that displayed the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah and BS Yeddyurappa with a tag line that read “For a corruption state”. She even tagged the BJP Karnataka official handle on Twitter in a bid to poke fun at this supposed gaffe.

As it turns out, the image tweeted by Spandana was a fake. A picture of the original paper reads “For a Corruption Free State”. Spandana shared a picture with the word “Free” edited out.

This is not the first time the Congress Social Media incharge has been caught spreading lies and using less than ethical means for her party’s propaganda. A video of Spandana had recently gone viral where she was seen urging her party workers to create multiple accounts on Social Media platform Twitter in order to target political opponents. She was also recently slammed for making derogatory and cheap comments against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a hilarious gaffe, when the Prime Minister had taken a tough stand against the Canadian Prime Minister for snubbing Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, Divya Spandana had taken to Twitter to proclaim how much India loves Justice Trudeau and that she would volunteer to hug him.

In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica controversy, after a poster of Congress Party was seen hanging over Alexander Nix’ wall, Divya had also done a u-turn. In an earlier video, she was seen talking about how psychoanalysis is an important part of handling Social Media. She had said :

It is all about, you know, it is about one person looking at it and how you communicate. And how you, I wouldn’t say condition, but how you take control of the other person’s mind and get them to see what you want them to see. That is what it is. I want you to see the truth, but the BJP probably wants you to see other things. But social media is all about controlling the other persons mind. There is  psycho-analysis…social media. 

In a later interview with Barkha Dutt, after the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke out, she was heard saying, …”We don’t believe in manipulation or rigging of elections, pyscho-analysis and I think ideologically and also looking at their track record of what they did with Brexit and Trump’s election, I don’t think we are somebody who wants to work with a company like that”.

While it is not new for the Congress’ Social Media head to misrepresent, some would say that by sharing a fake image which is so easily verifiable, she has gone a tad too far. One wonders if ‘The Hindu’ would take any action against Spandana for misrepresenting the paper.
