New Delhi: When the BJP walked away with four out of five states in the Assembly polls — Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa — with the AAP winning Punjab, social media took a dig at Rahul Gandhi and Congress. The memers took sharp jibes on RaGa especially since he was seen enjoying a tall glass of falooda ahead of the election results in the five states. “Many flavours of Wayanad!” He captioned the post.
So, after the Congress lost in all the states, particularly Punjab, which was known as their stronghold, the memers had a field day on social media. They again poked fun at the Congressmen when the noise grew louder that Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi would be tendering their resignations at Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting. However, ahead of the CWC meeting, the party has categorically rejected speculations that the Gandhis are going to resign at its top decision-making body, media reports said.
“The news story of alleged resignations being based on unnamed sources is completely unfair and incorrect,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
In fact, Sonia Gandhi continues to be the interim chief of the Congress, announced the party after its working committee’s meeting on Sunday.
“The CWC unanimously reaffirmed faith in leadership of Congress President Sonia Gandhi. CWC requests Sonia Gandhi to lead from the front,” KC Venugopal said while addressing a press conference.
But that didn’t stop the memers from making not-so-subtle digs at Congress and the Gandhis. Take a look at some of the memes:
The Congress has been completely wiped out in state election results declared on Thursday, losing Punjab, one of the last major states under its control, to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). It also failed to put up a strong fight in three other states where it had hoped for a comeback – Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur. In Uttar Pradesh too, where senior leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra heavily campaigned, the Congress got just 2 seats out of 403, a loss of 5 over the last polls. The party got just 2.4 per cent of the vote.
