Gujarat Congress goofs up, condoles Mandela's death

Electoral defeats seem to have affected the Gujarat Congress in ways less than desirable.

In a hurry to score brownie points, the party issued a release condoling the demise of Nelson Mandela on Wednesday evening.

The release signed by party spokesperson Jairajsinh Parmar stated that the Gujarat Pradesh Congress president Arjun Modvadia and the Leader of the Opposition Shankarsinh Vaghela have condoled the demise of Mandela. Delineating the life of Mandela, the release added that the Gujarat Congress offered its respect to the departed soul.

Interestingly, the goof up also spread to Modvadia’s Twitter handle, where he expressed grief over Mandela’s death. However, Modvadia later removed the post.

When contacted, Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi regretted the error.
