Ministry Of Environment Accidentally Posts An Unusually Political Tweet, Gets Busted
Rahul Gandhi had earlier attacked the BJP and accused them of setting the "country on fire."

The erroneous tweet from the handle took a dig at Congress prez Rahul Gandhi for targetting the ruling BJP party after the goons attacked a school bus of GD Goenka School in Gurugram.
"Not a single tweet from the Cong president condemning #KarniSenaViolence, instead just a cheesy tweet like this one," the official account (@moefcc) wrote.
The tweet came in response to a post by Twitter handle @aAccheDin.
Twitterati soon spotted the gaffe by the official handle and thought the person handling the accounts forgot to switch handles.
Looks like someone forgot to switch accounts.— Sandhya Ramesh (@sandygrains) January 25, 2018

The tweet was later deleted but people had already saved the screenshots.

While others pointed out and shared the link to Gandhi's tweet.
"There will never be a cause big enough to justify violence against children. Violence and hatred are the weapons of the weak. The BJP's use of hatred and violence is setting our entire country on fire," he wrote in a tweet posted on Wednesday.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most controversial venture Padmaavat sees a pan-India release on January 25. The magnum opus has been embroiled in controversy since its inception. While various Hindu and Rajpur fringe outfits have raised objections, the Supreme Court of India gave a green signal to the makers and asked the government to not ban the film in any state.
