The Lok Sabha elections 2019 have been announced and a fierce battle is set out to play out in the next two months as political parties have already begun their strict planning and campaigning for the seven phase polls.
India’s two big political parties i.e Congress & BJP have started their strategies and war of words with each other. Recently, Congress social media and communications head Divya Spandana tweeted a meme early today that could further aggravate the war of words between the Congress and the BJP. Spandana, considered a close aide to Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted a meme calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s supporters stupid. Spandana put out a tweet with the Prime Minister’s picture with overlaid text that read, “Did you know? 1 out of 3 Modi supporters are just as stupid as the other two.”
She captioned the image as, “My favourite! Aren’t they adorable?”

These deplorables will make him the Prime Minister again and you can share only memes then.

This is not the first time that the social media head of India’s oldest political party has made insulting remarks on a social media platform.
In September, Spandana was booked for sedition over a tweet calling Prime Minister a “thief”. The tweet had a photoshopped picture of the prime minister painting the word “chor” — or thief — on the forehead of his statue. The photo was captioned, “#ChorPMChupHai”.
Divya Spandana is not the only social media head of a party guilty of off-color postings on the social networking website. BJP’s IT Cell Chief Amit Malviya made similar barbs at Congress leaders in the past as well.
Ahead of the Gujarat assembly polls in December 2017, the BJP IT Cell chief, Amit Malviya, targeted India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru on the micro-blogging site.
In a tweet, with an image of Nehru hugging his sister, Malviya insinuated that the first prime minister of India a womaniser.
