After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav’s SCAM acronyms, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi also decided to come on-board as he gave the acronym a new meaning. Addressing a joint rally in Kanpur, UP, Gandhi on February 5 said that for him S stands for ‘service’, C for ‘courage’, A for ’ability’ and M for ‘modesty’. He made the remark at the same rally where Yadav had responded to the PM. His expansion has left the Twitterati in splits, who were still reeling under the after-effects of Modi’s and Yadav’s SCAM acronyms.

The Prime Minister was the first to come up with the ‘SCAM’ jibe addressing people in Meerut. He said his party was against “Samajwadi Party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati.”  UP CM was quick to retaliate with his acronym — “Save the country from Amit Shah and Modi”. Social media users, especially those on Twitter, had a ball coming up with their versions, while others had a tough time deciding which one was better. And now, it’s Gandhi’s version that is in the eye of the Twitter storm.
