Congress pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi’s Europe so­journ was a disas­ter, at least on so­cial me­dia. First, a pic­ture of him check­ing out the menu at a fast food joint was trolled on Twit­ter be­cause it was posted just hours after Congress veteran Gu­ru­das Ka­mat passed away. Then, the BJP retweeted another post that car­ried a four-photo mon­tage of Rahul’s moods in Ber­lin, draw­ing laughs on­line. The head of the party’s me­dia cell, Divya Span­dana, was ticked off by both Rahul and Sam Pitroda, head of the party’s over­seas wing. Pitroda wanted the posts deleted but Rahul thought it would give the BJP more Twit­ter fod­der. Divya her­self was miffed be­cause Pitroda made her hold the mi­cro­phone dur­ing Rahul’s pub­lic in­ter­ac­tion. Last heard, a cold war is brew­ing be­tween her and Nikhil Alva, Rahul’s own so­cial me­dia gate­keeper.
