Robert Vadra Sunday caste his vote in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections and, like everyone else, tweeted out a photograph of him showing off his inked finger along with an inspirational message. He urged people to exercise their franchise and also posted an emoji of a tricolour. However, the flag turned out to be that of Paraguay.
Vadra’s tweet drew flak from netizens, with some questioning if he knows how the flag of his country looks like. Taking a dig over a property-related case in which ED has quizzed him multiple times, a Twitter user even commented that the brother-in-law of Rahul Gandhi might be looking for land in Paraguay.Vadra soon realised his mistake and tweeted out a second picture in which he replaced it with the Indian flag. “Using a Paraguay flag in my post was just an aberration. I very well know that you all know it was posted by mistake,” he wrote in his second tweet.
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
