Congress Twitter account goofs up, again, refers to Subhadra as Lord Jagannath’s ‘brother’

Congress Twitter account is a delight on otherwise slow days. Ever since Divya Spandana has taken charge, Congress social media account has had goof-ups galore. Despite this, Divya Spandana has been hailed by a section of media for the ‘turnaround’ and winning social media space. Following Rahul Gandhi’s soft Hindutva approach, Congress social media account has also started celebrating Hindu festivals.

Yesterday, on occasion of Rath Yatra, Congress Twitter account posted a video of the journey.

Interestingly, the tweet talks about the annual journey of Lord Jagannath with his ‘brothers’. A little bit of research would have told them that the Rath Yatra is a procession of Lord Jagannath, his elder brother Balaram and his younger sister Subhadra. Congress seems to have mistaken his sister for his brother.

Secondly, the procession goes towards ‘Gundicha Temple’, not ‘Gundicha Ghat’. There is no such place as ‘Gundhicha Ghat’. In fact, there is no ‘ghat’ nearby as the nearest waterbody is the Bay of Bengal.

Many Twitter users also tried to correct the gaffe.

This is not the first time Congress leaders have shown ignorance and arrogance towards Hindu rituals. Recently, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia was also seen throwing away a coconut prasad given to him by party workers.
