Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh is yet again under the limelight and not because of his political activities but due to his engagement on social media. Yet another time, his tweet has created an uproarious environment on the micro-blogging site Twitter and the words written by him has compelled the political geniuses to scratch their heads.
Using the available 140 characters, Mr Singh tried to describe a video which was originally produced by ex-Congress MP Rajkumari Ratna Singh. He also tried to explain the background of the former Member of Parliament but the explanatory words he used were totally out of the knowledge of mere mortals.
He wrote,”Rajkumari Ratna Singh ex-MP is the daughter of Raja Dinesh Singh ji who was a Cabinet Minister in Indira Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi Cabinet.”
Rajkumari Ratna Singh ex MP is the daughter of Raja Dinesh Singh ji who was a Cabinet Minister in Indira Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi Cabinet.

“Rahul Gandhi’s Cabinet?,” When did this happen, Mr. Digvijaya Singh? And if it did happen why did your own party records didn’t update such a massive development? We certainly do not appreciate this secrecy, Sir.
Jokes apart, it would be safe to assume that it was a rather ‘slip of word’ from Digvijaya Singh where he probably intended to spell Rajiv Gandhi but landed up naming Rahul instead. And since we are still assuming, the mess up could also be a result of the new auto-spell tech in Digvijay’s phone as he just typed the letter ‘R’ and Rahul’s name got automatically written!
This is not the first time that the ex-CM of Madhya Pradesh has done this. Whether be it while writing or speaking, he fumbles in such a way that it makes a new sentence and the sentence makes the headlines. In August 2016, while speaking to media personnel, he said India-Occupied-Kashmir instead of Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir.
Previous to this, he had also called the terrorists Osama bin Laden as ‘Osamaji’ and most wanted Hafiz Saeed as ‘Saheb’. Moreover, in 2013, he also called his colleague from the party as ‘sau tunch maal’ in a public appearance.
