Mirroring their National President, Rahul Gandhi, who is prone to slip-ups on a routine basis, Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee had a gaffe when it sought to welcome the newest leader in their fold, Hardik Patel.
A few days back, Hardik Patel, who rose to fame after spearheading Patidar agitation in Gujarat and was found guilty for causing riots, officially joined Congress in presence of its president Rahul Gandhi. However, the Gujarat Congress Pradesh Committee website had planned a different welcome for Patel.
The website of the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Pradesh Committee welcomed Hardik Patel with a still which appears to be lifted from one of his sex videos that went viral a few months back.
The Gujarat Congress official website has an interesting history of lashing out at Congress. Earlier, they had called Congress a party of thugs and asserted that the party looted India for 70 years.
Perhaps, if this is how new leaders are greeted on joining Congress, one can expect why most of them are jumping the ship now.
