Political row erupted over Congress post showing Khaki shorts being burnt on social media

Debjit Mukherjee: A massive political row has erupted after Congress on Monday took a dig at RSS and posted a picture of Khaki shorts being burnt on its social media handle amid its ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra. In the picture posted, fire is seen burning an RSS dress and smoke is also rising from it.

The party took to Twitter and shared the graphics alsong with caption which read, “To free the country from shackles of hate and undo the damage done by BJP-RSS. Step by step, we will reach our goal. #BharatJodoYatra.”

BJP’s Sambit Patra reacted to the tweet and said, “It’s not ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ but ‘Bharat Todo’ and ‘Aag Lagao Yatra’. This is not the first time Congress Party has done so.” “I want to ask Rahul Gandhi do you want violence in this country? Congress should take down this picture immediately.”
