Telangana: After ‘EVM hacking’ fiasco, Congress stoops to a new low, uses derogatory poster to target EC

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has slammed Congress over the derogatory posters and asked how would they feel if someone puts posters of their "50-year-old Sri Sri Rahul Gandhi".

The Congress party in Telangana is drawing severe flak after they displayed an objectionable poster attempting to mock the election commission of India and its officials. According to reports, the poster has drawn serious criticism because not only it hurts the religious sentiments of Hindus but attempts to portray the election commission in a derogatory manner.

The poster depicts Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi as the Kauravas who are laughing while the Democracy depicted as Draupadi is being assaulted in the ‘Cheer Haran’ episode of Hindu Epic Mahabharata by the officials of the Election Commission. The Election Commission itself has been depicted as the blind and aloof Dhritarashtra.

The poster was reportedly used for call-to protest campaigns. The poster urged Congress workers and supporters to gather in protest at Dharna Chowk near Indira Park in Hyderabad today.

The BJP Telangana unit has stated that the poster by Congress is an insult to Hindus and women. They have also demanded an apology from the Congress party for the poster.

AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi, speaking to the media, has also slammed the party for the insulting imagery and stated that how would they feel if their “Sri Sri 50-year-old Rahul Gandhi” or his sister Priyanka Gandhi are depicted in such a manner. He added further that Congress faced a shameful defeat in the Telangana assembly elections and has resorted to such cartoons.

Congress party has recently suffered a national humiliation after a self-proclaimed ‘hacker’ claimed that he has helped rig the EVMs used in 2014 elections. Both party President Rahul Gandhi and senior leaders had peddled the propaganda. Later, images of senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal being present in the presser of the ‘Hacker’ were released and many questions on the so-called hacker’s claims were raised too. The ECIL also clarified that the concerned ‘hacker’ was never associated with them. The hackers’ claims were all refuted by both media and independent experts.

Congress leaders are known to cry ‘EVM hacking’ excuses whenever they lose an election and their recent stunt in Telangana is also being seen as a similar plea. But this time, the party seems to have created a nasty controversy by using derogatory imagery in its poster.

In the recently concluded assembly elections that were held in 5 states, Congress leaders, despite leading in 3 states, had started complaining about rigged EVMs when the numbers in Telangana started going against them.
