Congress leader Kamal Nath deletes tweet after goofing up, but not before social media had a field day

Today is the birth anniversary of Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. Tilak was one of India’s greatest freedom fighters and social reformers. He was born on 23 July 1856 in Maharashtra. Well known for his famous slogan ‘Swaraj is my birthright and I shall have it’, Tilak is a household name among Indians for his patriotism and social movements.

Many prominent personalities on social media have shared their respect for Bal Gangadhar Tilak on his birth anniversary, including PM Narendra Modi.

However, senior Congress leader and Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath goofed up. Kamal Nath shared a tweet commemorating Tilak for his ‘Punya Tithi’ (death anniversary). Though he deleted his tweet soon after realising his mistake, it had already grabbed the attention of social media users.

Twitter user @bhaiyyajispeaks took a screenshot of Kamal Nath’s tweet before he deleted it and started a Twitter trend #GetWellSoonKamal Nath. Soon, the hashtag gained popularity on Twitter and people started using it to remind the senior Congress leader of his mistake.

Hundreds of Twitter users have been using the hashtag, some with memes and jokes about the Congress party and its President Rahul Gandhi. But Kamal Nath is yet to post an apology for wrongfully citing the birth anniversary of a great national leader as death anniversary.

Kamal Nath, who was recently in news for writing an open letter to Lord Shiva, asking him to help people of Madhya Pradesh to dislodge the BJP from power, is reportedly being seen as a rival to Jyotiraditya Scindia for the Congress’ CM candidate for Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh goes to assembly polls later this year and Kamal Nath’s position in the party means his actions might influence his party’s poll performance too.
