Digvijaya Singh Faces Backlash After Posting An Abusive Meme Against PM Narendra Modi
Rajya Sabha Parliamentarian Digvijaya Singh faced backlash after he posted an abusive meme on Modi and his supporters.
With great power comes great responsibility they say. And when you run a verified account on a social networking site with more than 700k followers reading your posts, you either have to keep your emotions in leash or well, brace yourself for the backlash for every stray tweet you wish to share in the public domain.

A day after the nation started a Twitter movement of sorts on the micro blogging site with angry users trending #BlockNarendraModi over Modi following abusive 'troll' accounts who justified and celebrated Gauri Lankesh's death, the General Secretary of All India Congress Committee Digvijaya Singh managed to grab the eyeballs of many on the platform.

On Friday, Singh posted an abusive meme taking a dig at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his "Bhakts" (a derogatory term used on the social media against Modi's supporters) followers.

The meme read:

"Mere do achievements
1. Bhakton ko Ch***** banaya
2. Ch****** ko Bhakt banaya."

Along with the meme, Singh wrote:

"Not mine but couldn't help posting it. My apologies to the person concerned. He is the best in the "Art of Fooling!"

Here's the tweet:








Needless to say, Singh's tweet drew a severe flak on the micro blogging site. Some couldn't fathom how a former CM could post such a tweet, while some trolls got back with nasty replies.




































However, Singh later "clarified" in his tweets that he hadn't used abusive language for the prime minister. In fact, the abusive word in the meme posted by him was used as a synonym to "fooling".










He also went on to say that he enjoys the abuses he has received from the "paid" bhakts.
