Congratulations, finally someone in Congress could do arithmetic right

Perhaps thinking that the Modi government should not be responsible for all the smiles on budget day, Congress decided to give some laughter doses, through its Tweets.

In a tweet that can only be construed as the Congress party acknowledging its President Rahul Gandhi’s newly acquired skills of the Unitary method in Mathematics, the official account of the party tweeted the revolutionary discovery that there’s a fundamental difference between Rs. 6000 per year and Rs. 500 per month.

In Budget 2019, one of the most significant announcements was the structured income support that will be provided to farmers through the Pradhan Mantri Krishan Samridhi Yojana. Rs. 6000 will be provided to farmers with less than 2 hectares of land annually in three instalments. It will cost the state Rs. 75,000 crores per year. In addition, a 2% interest subvention has been provided to farmers who practice animal husbandry and fisheries. An additional 1% interest subvention will be given if loans are repaid on time.

Congress took to Twitter to try and criticise this move. In its tweets, the Congress party asserted that while Rs. 6000 per year was a promise, Rs. 500 per month was the reality. And therefore, the promise of Rs. 6000 per year was a ‘Jumla’.

If tweeting the embarrassment once wasn’t enough, the party posted it again. But this time, in Hindi.

But even then, the tweets were factually incorrect as the farmers will be paid the amount in three instalments and not Rs 500 every month.

While the Modi government gave people plenty to smile about through the announcements made by the Acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal in his budget speech. the Congress party contributed to it through its tweets.

While the President of the Congress party could not ever be accused of possessing a high degree of intellect, it appears his creative ideas are rubbing off on other members of the party as well. However, Congress deserves to be congratulated for at least doing their arithmetic right.
