The Congress party often known for its major goof-ups has come out with another embarrassing episode after they remembered former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao by celebrating his birth anniversary insensitively on the day of his demise.

The Congress party tweeted, “P.V. Narasimha Rao, the 9th PM of India, dismantled the License Raj and oversaw the biggest economic reform the country has seen till date. His contributions to the nation shall always be remembered as we honour him today on his birth anniversary.”

Congress tweeting birthday wishes to PV Narsimha Rao on his death anniversary

PV Narasimha Rao, India’s ninth Prime Minister is one of the tallest statesmen of the country. During his term as Prime Minister from 1991-96, he ushered the much-touted economic reforms also known as Liberalisation of Indian economy. He was the first holder of this office from a non-Hindi-speaking region, belonging to southern India. Rao was personally responsible for the dismantling of the Licence Raj and is often referred to as the “Father of Indian Economic Reforms”.

PV Narasimha Rao who passed away on December 23, 2004, after suffering from a heart attack. Rao’s family wanted the body to be cremated in Delhi as it was his “karmabhoomi”. It is often alleged that UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi did not want PV Narasimha Rao’s body to be cremated in Delhi and ensured that the body was moved to Hyderabad.

Sonia Gandhi also ensured that the body of the former Prime Minister and former Congress President Rao’s body was not allowed inside to enter the AICC (All India Congress Committee) compound. His body stayed parked in a carriage outside the gate and the party made sure that there was no state funeral for him.

The Congress party might have realised their goof-up and deleted the tweet after it received flak in the social media for the lack of knowledge about its own great leaders.

This is not the first time Congress IT cell has tweeted such insensitive tweets. The Congress IT cell is often known for spreading fake news, hate and lies and has been caught several times for propagating such half-truths. Recently, it also had a similar moment, when it had paid tributes to reformist Raja Ram Mohan Roy on his death anniversary but they had wished him on his birth anniversary.
