New Delhi, September 18, 2017 : If your interests lie in Indian politics and if you are fairly aware of the controversies that stem out of  Twitter, then this news is for you! Senior Congress pioneer Manish Tewari took to the micro-blogging website on September 17 and utilized hateful speech tending to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet- hours after sending his ‘good wishes’ for the Indian Prime Minister’s birthday

The episode began with a tweet of a short video shared by Tewari of a blunder which demonstrated Modi strolling while the national anthem was being played during his Russia trip in 2015.

Through his tweet, Manish Tewari attempted to ridicule Prime Minister Modi for following individuals who were seen displaying satisfaction via social media after Kannada senior journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead outside her home in Bengaluru.

Tewari’s tweet was responded to by a user who at that point continued to contrast Modi and Mahatma Gandhi.

Understanding the What, When, How

In his post, Tewari asserted in Hindi how Modi “befooled” individuals and that, “Even Mahatma can’t show MODI Deshbhakti (patriotism)”

He was reacting to a comment made by a man on the micro- blogging site that patriotism is in the DNA of Modi and even Mahatma Gandhi can’t tutor him that.

The issue stayed hot on Sunday with BJP pioneers and supporters disagreeing with Tewari over it.

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi in an interview with PTI said that after facing rejection from the people, a distressed Congress and its leaders have “lost their mental balance”.

BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli demanded an apology from Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, saying an absence of which would mean Tewari’s words had their approval and support.

The incident has also highlighted the unfortunate stance of administrative chair-holders who have forgotten the dignity and decorum politics requires in an attempt to malign fellow leaders.

The issue remained trending on Twitter – a hashtag “ #CongLeaderAbusesPM” was also surfaced and drew sharp reactions from Twitterati.

While the Congress leader clarified asserting that his remark did not attempt to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi but the twitter user who had compared the PM with the Father of the Nation.

Manish Tewari is the second Congress pioneer after Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh to experience harsh criticism for utilizing foul dialect against Modi.

Previously, on September 8, senior pioneer of the INC, Digvijaya Singh, had likewise shared a meme in which injurious language was utilized against the Prime Minister. Singh had additionally said that Prime Minister was a specialist in the “art of tricking”.

The previous chief minister of Madhya Pradesh was broadly censured in similar manner as Tewari was.

The occurrence has exposed a new low as far for the Congress party is concerned.

Twiterrati and the Indian masses have to a great extent censured the response by none other than a legal counselor who was formerly the information and broadcasting minister of the nation. Tewari, who is also the official representative of the INC has been at the receiving end of a lot of flak and rightly so. It is extremely improper for any educated individual to indulge in the use of such foul dialect, more so when they are accountable for public position.

This also brings forth a larger question- Have people’s dispositions changed toward what’s considered socially acceptable language? Have discussion platforms on the internet further wrecked this understanding as people get an opportunity to use words they might not have said out loud behind a lock of anonymity?
