It’s the age of social media and not just variety, memes too spice up our lives. And it’s all the more hilarious when the leading national political parties join the bandwagon.
Keeping the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and probably also the demographic dividend of India in mind, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress are brutally trolling each other on social media and coming up with the most creative memes and parodies. Each party is said to have designated social media teams who create content for social media campaigning for their respective parties.
Taking a cue from upcoming film Gully Boy song ‘Azadi’, the Congress released its own Azadi song on social media. The rap slams the BJP and calls for freedom from the ruling party.
The film song takes a dig at the corrupt governments in the country and follows from the azadi-slogans raised by the then Jawaharlal Nehru University student union president Kanhaiya Kumar in 2016, for which he was charged with sedition.
The BJP was swift to counter-slam the Congress with its own version, giving folks a goal for 2019: “Congress se Azadi”.
Now, watch this:
Two days ago, the Congress also put up a crossword puzzle ‘Find Modi Scams’. It said, “#ContestAlert: Find 10 of the many scams of the #Modi Govt and get a chance to win ?10,000,” and gave a hint: “Visit www.corruptmodi.com.”
A day ago, Congress shared a meme showing Narcos character Pablo Escobar and captioned it “Chor at 7 Racecourse today. #PakdagayaModi.”View image on Twitter
The meme was first posted by the BJP on the Budget day with the caption, “Prince at 10JP after the Budget Speech.”View image on Twitter
Prince at 10JP after the Budget Speech.
When you have to copy BJP even while making memes, despite having a walking-talking meme as your Party President, then it speaks volumes 🙂Congress✔@INCIndiaChor at 7 Racecourse today. #PakdagayaModi.
This morning the BJP on its Twitter handle, wished its 10.4 million followers, saying, “Good Morning, folks. While you are starting a new day of honesty and hard work, #LiarRahulGandhi is preparing to peddle more lies It’s difficult to track all his lies, but we’ve tried to track major lies peddled by him on #Rafale. A heads up before his today’s quota!”
Good Morning, folks.

It’s difficult to track all his lies, but we’ve tried to track major lies peddled by him on #Rafale. A heads up before his today’s quota!
Lie No.1: #LiarRahul tried to twist some report in a French media house to say making Reliance an offsets partner was a tradeoff for Dassault to get the deal with India.
Fact: Both Supreme Court & Dassault CEO said Indian govt had nothing to do with choosing of offsets partners.
Lie No.2: #LiarRahul tried to create false impression that SC has found grave irregularities with the deal. Indulged in third grade level propaganda on a sub judice matter.
Fact: The Supreme Court dismissed the petitions filed by Congress proxies and held govt has done no wrong.1
Lie No.3: #LiarRahul claimed that a senior officer at MoD was ‘punished’ by Modi govt for submitting a dissent note on Rafale deal.
Fact: #LiarRahul’s lies were shattered when the officer in question spoke to media and denied any kind of ‘punishment’. https://www.thetruepicture.org/new-congress-lie-rafale-busted-defense-officer-punished-modi-government/ …1,8359:37 AM – Feb 9, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacyA New Congress Lie on Rafale Busted- ‘Defense Officer Punished by Modi Government’Congress falsely accused the government of shunting out an officer with regard to Rafale.

Lie No.6: #LiarRahul quotes multiple numbers at multiple places for supposed price of aircraft in UPA deal
• Parliament, he said 520 crore
• Karnataka, he said 526 crore
• Rajasthan, he said 540 crore
• Delhi, he said 700 crore
Analysis: He deserves Nobel for lying.
Lie No.7: #LiarRahul said that the processes and procedures laid down for military acquisitions were flouted by PM Modi’s government.
Fact: Hon’ble SC in its judgment held: We are SATISFIED that there is no occasion to really doubt the process.
While, who forms the government will be decided later in the year, who do you think is winning the social media battle?
