Robert Vadra posts Paraguay flag instead of tricolour alongside inked finger; gets trolled
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s husband Robert Vadra on Sunday was trolled on social media after he wrongly posted a Paraguay flag emoji with a picture showing his inked finger after voting in New Delhi.
“Our right our strength !! Everyone must step out n vote… we need all support, to create a combined future for our loved ones, n for a secular, safe, productive future for our country (sic),” he posted on Facebook with a photograph of him holding up his inked index finger.
However, with the post he had added an emoticon of the red, white and blue Paraguayan flag instead of the tricolour Indian flag.
A few hours later, he edited his Facebook post and put another one with an Indian flag. “India lives in my heart and I salute Tiranga. Using a Paraguay flag in my post was just an aberration. I very well know that ‘You all know it was posted by mistake’ but you decided to ‘play up my mistake’, when there are such glaring issues to be discussed. It saddens me, but never mind!! My best wishes…,” he stated in his new post after admitting the much-obvious mistake.
Earlier in the day, Robert Vadra voted along with Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at a polling booth next to their residence and was also joined by mother-in-law and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, among others from his family, who voted separately in the sixth round of polling for all seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital.
