Lalu proves lallu, tweets badly done photoshopped image of anti-BJP rally to flaunt strength
Patna, August 28: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) patriarch Lalu Prasad Yadav badly needs to learn the art of photoshopping and other tweaking of pictures and facts if he really wants to win the "political battle" on social media.
Yes, if you are surprised, the former chief minister of Bihar and former union railway minister is on Twitter since 2012. His Twitter handle goes by the name--@laluprasadrjd.
In spite of being on Twitter for so long and enjoying the support of so many followers, Lalu and his social media managers still don't know how to photoshop a picture well like their rivals in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who have mastered the art of doling out "fake news" to public on a daily basis.
On Sunday, Lalu, perhaps with the hope of showing the world his "larger than life image" ended up tweeting a poorly edited picture of the crowd gathered at the anti-BJP rally--"BJP bhagao desh bachao"--in Patna, Bihar.
The aerial photo tweeted by the RJD supremo showed Patna's Gandhi Maidan, where the rally was hosted, fully packed with his party's supporters.
As usual, the masters of Twitter caught Lalu for tweeting a morphed picture of the rally, which showed a much larger audience than the actual gathering of crowd in the event.
This is what Lalu had tweeted:
After Lalu's mega blunder, Twiterrati blasted him left, right and centre, literally.

Photoshop invented by Modi Ji in 2013-14 and successfully grab by all political parties.— adah (@SlinkyFeline_) August 27, 2017
The rally of Lalu, attended by all his family members and colleagues from several opposition parties including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, to name a few, was hosted a month after the RJD lost power in Bihar as Lalu's former ally Bihar CM Nitish Kumar joined hands with the BJP.
All we can say is that Lalu first needs to brush up his photoshopping skills before galvanising various opposition parties against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
