Robert Vadra took to social media to urge people to go out and vote

In a major embarrassment to the Congress, Rahul Gandhi’s brother in law and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadra posted his selfie after voting. Except, hoping for a secular and safe future of our country, Vadra had posted Paraguay’s flag instead of India’s.

“Our right our strength !! Everyone must step out n vote … we need all support, to create a combined future for our loved ones, n for a secular, safe, productive future for our country.” Vadra tweeted with the flag of Paraguay from Twitter handle “@irobertvadra”.

However, when various people pointed it out, he deleted the tweet.

Moments after he deleted the tweet, he posted another set of images of the other family members who cast their votes and a corrected note of his appeal to vote.

The corrected appeal was posted 2 minutes before the voting for the sixth phase ends.

While the above Twitter handle is followed by various journalists and verified social media users, including Congress workers, the said account is not verified by Twitter as authentic. Having said that, the bio of the Twitter handle also does not specify that it is a fan page.
