    How Netizens are Reacting?
    "Man who doesn't know difference between national anthem and national song, who doesn't know to raise hand while shouting 'Bharat Mata ki Jay' wants to be prime minister. Not in next 100 years at least," a user lashed out at Rahul Gandhi. "If such thing happens over here...Imagine he being the PM of India ... what worse could happen?," another user added.

    A netizen responded, "There was a subtle message in this by RaGa for Modiji, to include Nepal in Akhand Bharat. Also if you notice the name of the campaign, it is Bharat Jodo, so he wants to include Pak and Bangladesh into Bharat and also west Bengal, if possible. [sic]"

    "These guys are a big joke. How did they play Nepals national anthem. No one in Congress comes prepared?," a person on Twitter slammed.

    A user said, "That's the reason they are just releasing hugging pics so that such gems don't come out."
