Robert Vadra posts Paraguay flag emoji in place of Tricolour, gets trolled
In an embarrassing goof-up, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's husband Robert Vadra on Sunday used emoji of the flag of Paraguay instead of the Tricolour to spread awareness about the Lok Sabha elections on social media, inviting ridicule from netizens.
"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 of our country," Vadra tweeted with a joined hands emoji, the Indian Parliament and a Paraguayan flag, along with a photo of his inked finger after casting his vote.
The tweet, which became the butt of jokes on social media, remained for over four hours on his Twitter page.
Soon after the goof-up, Vadra was mercilessly trolled on social media, following which he deleted the tweet.
A user said, "Robert Vadra Declared Himself A Paraguayan Citizen On 12th May, 2019".
Another sarcastically asked, "Voted for BJP right?"
Though Vadra posted a correct caption on his Facebook page, he however failed to check the offending flag while posting it on Twitter.
Hours later he deleted the tweet and posted the screenshot of his Facebook post which had the Indian flag in the caption.
India lives in my heart & I salute Tiranga.Using a Paraguay flag in my post was just an aberration.I very well know tht”You all know it was posted by mistake" but u decided to”play up my mistake”,whn thr r such glaring issues to be discussed. It saddens me, but never mind! ???????? pic.twitter.com/ZPDva2eWSW
