The Congress party, in an apparent mistake, chanted the name of Priyanka Chopra instead of Priyanka Gandhi in New Delhi. Congress former MLA Surender Kumar was involved in the process. In a video clip posted on social media, the Congress leader can be heard chanting the name of the Bollywood actress instead of their own leader. He also chanted the name of their interim president Sonia Gandhi and their former president Rahul Gandhi.
After chanting the names of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, he says Priyanka Chopra instead of Priyanka Gandhi. He was immediately corrected by a co-worker, and after that, he took the correct name of the Congress leader.

The Twitterati were not the ones to miss out and also had some fun about the flip about the clip.

The Congress party has developed a habit of having its foot in the mouth in recent times. Only today, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury called Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah illegal immigrants while attacking the National Registrar of Citizens (NRC). It’s not really a surprise considering the fact that Rahul Gandhi has had such an impact on the work culture of the party for so long.
