India Gandhi ya Indira Gandhi? Shashi Tharoor's gaffe sets Twitter abuzz


New Delhi, Sep 24: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor posted a picture of former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, and Indira Gandhi waving to crowds during their visit to the Soviet Union reportedly with a false claim that it from the United States.

Tharoor's post on Gandhi's US visit in 1954 was to counter Narendra Modi's mega-event at NRG Stadium in Houston with US President Donald Trump.

"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," Tharoor wrote.

After Tharoor misspelt 'Indira' as 'India,' several twitter users pointed it out the gaffe and 'India Gandhi' soon became a trending hashtag on the platform. Some were even quick in pointing that picture was not from USA 1954 but Moscow 1956.
