Instead of celebrating Indira Gandhi’s 99th birthday, the Congress Party celebrated her 100th. It released advertisements in all leading dailies on Saturday in remembrance of the late Prime Minister on her “100th birth anniversary”. While most Congressmen didn’t point out the error, former party member Suparno Satpathy tweeted asking whether the party had “completely lost it or what?”
Indira was born in 1917 and her 100th birth anniversary is next year. Suparno, the grandson of former Odisha chief minister Nandini Satpathy, tagged Rahul Gandhi in his tweet. It is learnt that the offices of Rahul and senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar immediately got in touch with him and informed him they would look into it.
