Mahila Congress misspells the first Education Minister’s name on National Education Day

With these kinds of gaffes becoming a penchant with the Congress one is forced to believe that the Congress, instead of spending so much time in chastising PM Modi, should dedicate its precious time in educating its members and probably disciplining or if the need arises, changing their scriptwriters!

Adding to the list of bloopers committed by social media team of Congress, Mahila Congress today, in an attempt to pay their respects to independent India’s first Education Minister, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, referred to him as ‘Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad’, mixing up his name with former President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam.

This is rather appalling that being a part of an institution which claims to be the oldest and the first political party in India, the members of the Mahila Congress probably need a lesson in history while remembering our first education minister.

The Central Government with a resolution dated September 11, 2008, has declared November 11, the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, freedom fighter, eminent educationist and the first Union Minister of Education, as National Education Day.

This is, however, not the first time Congress members have exhibited such ignorance on the public platform. Umpteen number of times, earlier, other Congress members including Rahul Gandhi, their leader, (in the true sense of the word) has made headlines for reasons often less flattering.

Several times the Congress’ Twitter handle has been lampooned for the gum-ups which makes them the butt of all jokes on Twitter. Last year Congress social media team got trolled for bringing back Indira Gandhi from the dead for inaugurating a bridge in West Bengal in 1992, 8 years after she was assassinated.

Congress IT cell, in 2017 had run a series of “polls” with the hashtag #KnowYourLegacy. Their #KnowYourLegacy question had, however, backfired, and they got trolled for the #KnowYourLegacy quiz which came back to haunt them about the horrors from the time of Congress misrule.

They had also goofed up in dates while paying tributes on death anniversary. They had written the date of death (27th September 1833) before the date of birth (22nd May 1772) which appears as if he was born on 27th September 1833 and passed away on 22nd May 1772 which is just not possible.

With these kinds of gaffes becoming a penchant with the Congress one is forced to believe that the Congress, instead of spending so much time in chastising PM Modi, should dedicate its precious time in educating its members and probably disciplining or if the need arises, changing their scriptwriters!
