Congress’ petty politics: MP govt takes back state formation day invitation cards as they had Deen Dayal Upadhyay’s image printed on top

The cards which were already distributed are also being taken back and new cards without Upadhyay's image are being provided, the ANI report states.

The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad has taken back already printed and distributed invitation cards after realising that they had the image of Deen Dayal Upadhyay printed on them.

As per a report in ANI, in Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh, cards were first printed and distributed for the celebration of the state formation day on November 1. However, after realising that the cards have the image of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay on them, the Congress administration has decided to take them back.

The cards which were already distributed are also being taken back in exchange for new cards, the report states.

The new cards being printed have the same programme schedule, just the image of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay at the top of the card has been removed.

However, this is not the first time the Congress leaders have displayed their dislike for the former RSS stalwart and former president of the Jan Sangh, the political outfit that eventually became the BJP.

In Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot’s government had removed Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyay’s name from state scholarship tests soon after it came to power last year.
