Hudhud times: Congress deleted tweet labelling PM as illiterate, Hudhudtimes reports.

Hudhud times: Bengaluru | The Congress in Karnataka has deleted a tweet labelling Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an “angootha-chhaap” or illiterate, also expressing regret for what it called an “uncivil tweet” posted by a “novice social media manager”. 

Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar, withdrawing the controversial post, admitted last night that it fell short of the standards of “civil and parliamentary language” in political discourse.   

“I have always believed that civil and parliamentary language is a non-negotiable pre-requisite for political discourse. An uncivil tweet made by a novice social media manager through the Karnataka Congress official Twitter handle is regretted and stands withdrawn,” Mr Shivakumar tweeted.
