Maharashtra Youth Congress uses 2012 Indian Idol audition contestants to depict them as ‘unemployed youth’

With Maharashtra state assembly elections on the horizon, the Maharasthra Youth Congress shared an image criticising the Narendra Modi government for alleged unemployment in the country.

Congress is a joke that writes itself. They have even different punchlines when elections are round the corner.

With Maharashtra state assembly elections on the horizon, the Maharasthra Youth Congress shared an image criticising the Narendra Modi government for alleged unemployment in the country.

However, in doing so, they have tweeted an image of contestants lining up for participating in a reality show Indian Idol in 2012.

Congress party sharing the image of 2012 Indian Idol auditions to target the BJP

The image pertains to an audition held at the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan, Lucknow in 2012 for a Sony TV reality show – “Indian Idol 6”, where a lot of aspiring young men and women had arrived to exhibit their talent and be part of the reality show. A little too harsh to call enthusiastic aspirant singers ‘unemployed’.

Awkwardly, the Maharasthra Youth Congress has scored a self-goal by sharing an image that was shot in the year 2012, the year when UPA was in power at the centre. In Maharashtra, too, it was Congress government with Prithviraj Chavan as Chief Minister.

The Congress party which is fighting an existential battle against the mighty BJP seems to be trying too hard to influence voters. However, in an attempt to mount a fight against BJP, Youth Congress has now resorted to posting fake images to target them ahead of the state assembly elections.

Earlier, the Haryana Youth Congress had resorted to cheap propaganda after they were caught sharing a series of misleading images with half-truths to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Manohar Lal Khattar led Haryana government.
