Rahul Gandhi’s trusted aide admits being close to Vijay Mallya

Congress’ social media head Divya Spandana, who is known to share fake image and encouraging party workers to create multiple fake accounts, was mocked on Twitter yesterday after her old tweets showing her closeness to high profile loan defaulter and liquor baron Vijay Mallya resurfaced, especially after Congress tried to establish guilt by association between Prime Minister Modi and self-styled godman Asaram, who is convicted of raping a minor. Congress party’s official Twitter handle tweeted an old video showing PM Modi sharing the stage with Asaram, in a bid to downplay Modi’s image.

After her told tweets went viral, the issue was picked up by journalist Arnab Goswami and debated on his channel, Republic TV. While Divya Spandana admitted that she has known Vijay Mallya since she was a kid and Mallya had also sponsored a holiday for her, she tried to deflect attention by going after Arnab Goswami himself and even Rajeev Chandrasekhar, BJP Rajya Sabha MP.

Before these revelations by Divya Spandana, Twitter users had dug up her old tweets praising Mallya.

Twitterati even showed how with the change in Mallya’s fate, Divya changed her stand on him.

Following Asaram’s conviction, Congress Twitter handle had posted an old video showing PM Modi share stage with Asaram, with a caption how a man is known by the company he keeps, implying Modi should also be held guilty for Asaram’s crimes, just for his association with the rapist even before he was accused of a crime, let alone being convicted. If one follows the same logic, given Divya’s tweets praising Mallya, she should also be held responsible for Mallya’s alleged crimes. The lack of logic was so blinding that Divya even had to issue a clarification that how she is not really responsible for Mallya’s dealings.

The Congress party and especially, its social media in-charge Divya Spandana seems to have a tough time grasping simple concepts that come fairly easily to the rest of the world. If one is to trust Congress’ logic, everyone associated with Rahul Gandhi now, an accused in National Herald, should be castigated and ostracised in the even of his guilt is proved in the court of law. Also, every individual who was associated with Rahul Gandhi when he was accused of rape, should also be castigated.
