Imran Khan’s Tagore mistake, Amit Malviya missing Rahul & Gautam Gambhir’s Mankad moment

The most politically correct and incorrect tweets of the day from across the political spectrum

New Delhi: Not a Twitter regular, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is in charge of east Uttar Pradesh, showed concern about the abysmal law and order situation in the state and did so in a rather innovative manner. Yogi ji, hope you have seen the newspaper clippings?

When former diplomat K.C. Singh took a dig at Congress for celebrating Rahul Gandhi’s birthday despite the Lok Sabha elections loss, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah took him to task: would he not celebrate his children or grandchildren’s birthday if they failed an exam? We think this round goes to Mr Abdullah.

BJP’s IT head Amit Malviya seems to miss Rahul Gandhi more than anyone else. After noticing his absence on the first morning of a new session of Parliament, Monday, he noted the Congress president’s no-show at the ‘one nation, one election’ meeting held by the PM Tuesday.

Recently-elected BJP MP from Delhi, Gautam Gambhir greeted his daughter in true cricketing style by using the game’s lingo. Well, we’re all bowled over by the picture, Mr Gambhir.

The other Priyanka of politics, Priyanka Chaturvedi, deputy leader of the Shiv Sena, is handing out free advice to journalists — this one for a report on the encephalitis outbreak in Bihar.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted a “Kahlil Gibran quote” on service, joy and sleep. Unfortunately for him, it turned to be something that Rabindranath Tagore wrote. Pakistan’s problems, big or small, don’t seem to be ending any time soon…

Ram Madhav, BJP national general secretary, proudly presented a photograph of himself with Indian football star Baichung Bhutia, who’s now into politics. Should we expect to see the Indian footballer in the BJP?

And, Minister of State of Youth Affairs and Sports, Kiren Rijiju tweeted a picture of India’s Blind Cricket Team and congratulated them for their success at the international level.

Ashok Malik, press secretary to the President of India, reminded everyone that Britain’s Conservative Party MP Boris Johnson, who could be the next PM, is of part Turkish descent. Question is, will that help Turkey?

Congress’s Milind Deora obviously has time on his hands: he’s been watching the HBO’s mini-series Chernobyl and drawing lessons from it on single party rule — in this case, a socialist party. Is this a dig at an Indian political party and if it is, which one?
