Digvijay disowns derogatory meme on Modi, but maintains that PM good at 'art of fooling'
After an uproar over a highly derogatory meme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted on his Twitter handle, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Friday disowned it but said the words in the tweet were his.
The tweet is a meme - it has a picture of the PM with two sentences both of which have curse words. Digvijay also wrote that he didn't create the meme, but he "couldn't help posting it". In the same tweet, Digvijay has also written that the PM is "the best in the art of fooling!".
"I have clearly said it is not mine, disowned it...I have clearly said it (picture) is not mine..My words are simple-He is the best in the art of fooling. These words are mine," he told media on Friday.
Digvijaya further reiterated that he has not said those words and just retweeted the meme, and that Prime Minister is the best in the art of fooling.
The meme posted by Digvijaya had a picture of PM Modi with text that read, "Mere do achievements 1.) Bhakton ko C** banaya 2.) C*** ko Bhakt banaya."
Digvijay, however, has removed the controversial tweet. Digvijay had drawn flak for writing 'Indian-Occupied Kashmir' on his twitter handle.
It needs to be noted that the picture with derogatory words on Modi and Digvijay saying thaty PM was 'the best in art of fooling' are part of the same tweet.
