Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor trolled after posting a tweet on his official Twitter handle on 23 September.

The political leader was trying to take a dig at PM Modi’s visit to the US with his recent post. Unfortunately, he made a blunder and got trolled on the micro-blogging site.


On 23rd September, Shashi Tharoor posted a tweet on Indira Gandhi and Nehru visit’s to the US in 1954.

The gaffe that Tharoor committed when he called Indira Gandhi ‘India Gandhi’ in a tweet. Later, he corrected the information to his followers.

 

But, he got late as netizens caught his erroneous tweet and started trolling the political leader.

Shashi Tharoor shared a picture of former Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi at a public rally.

He captioned, “Nehru & India Gandhi in the US in 1954. Look at the hugely enthusiastic spontaneous turnout of the American public, without any special PR campaign, NRI crowd management or hyped-up media publicity.”

After this tweet, netizens left scratching their heads and they started asking questions that who is India Gandhi?

Check out how Twitterati reacted on Shashi Tharoor’s tweet:

 

 

After knowing his mistake, Tharoor spontaneously responded and posted another tweet.

“I am told this picture (forwarded to me) probably is from a visit to the USSR and not the US. Even if so, it still doesn't alter the message: the fact is that former PMs also enjoyed popularity abroad. When @narendramodi is honoured, @PMOIndia is honoured; respect is for India,” Tharoor tweeted.
