After Rahul Gandhi’s HAL visit flip-flop, Congress Twitter handle goofs up while talking about the event

There is no end to bizarre and outrageous allegations by Congress party on the Rafale deal. On the day their Party president Rahul Gandhi is trying to instigate workers of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) to create unrest in the organisation, thereby affecting production in the crucial plant, the party’s twitter handle went into overdrive mode while covering Rahul Gandhi’s latest adventure.

While so, Congress’ official Twitter handle ended up alleging that the Modi government has “favoured Rafale over HAL”. This tweet had left many people scratching their heads, as Rafale is a fighter aircraft and HAL is a public sector enterprise which mainly assembles fighter planes with kits supplied by global defence equipment manufacturers.

The screenshot of the tweet is given below, which has been deleted by the Twitter handle of the party now.

The moment the tweet was posted, alert Twitter users spotted the apparent goof up and it became a subject of amusement for social media users. The Congress party and Rahul Gandhi often become victims of goof ups by Rahul Gandhi in his speeches, or tweets by various leaders of the party, and it was no different.

The gaffe by the Congress party was not limited to Twitter only. For last one week, it was being reported that Rahul Gandhi will meet HAL employees today. But it seems nobody had actually arranged such a meet and nobody had a clue who is organising what, creating a confusion over the entire subject.

HAL authorities said they have not even received a request from Congress to hold the meet in the organisation. After that Congress claims that retired employees of HAL had organised the meet. But the trade union of HAL had said that Congress party had approached them requesting a meeting and the union had not taken any decision yet.

At last, the authorities of HAL refused to let Rahul Gandhi meet the employees inside the premises of the company. The company also asked its staff not to attend the meet as they don’t want employees of the company to be involved in any political controversy. Due to this, the party had to shift the venue of the meet to Minsk Square in Bengaluru, where mostly retired employees of HAL attended the meeting.
