"For Sale": Congress Leader Jabs Jyotiraditya Scindia With Air India Meme

New Delhi: Congress' youth wing chief Srinivas BV on Friday hit out at newly-appointed Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia with a meme that features the Air India mascot in tattered clothes, Mr Scindia with currency notes in his pocket and a speech bubble that reads "We are both for sale".

The meme has drawn sharp reactions from the BJP which said the post is a reflection of the Congress' frustration.

The meme was first shared from the social media account of the Congress' Madhya Pradesh unit but gained traction after it was shared by the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) chief.

Srinivas shared the meme which showed Air India Mascot ''Maharaja'' telling Scindia, "Aiyye Maharaj, hum dono bikau hain (Come Maharaja, we are both for sale)", and added the caption, "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi..".

Last night, the Madhya Pradesh Congress shared the cartoon and wrote, "Bikau ko bechne ka kaam mila, Gaddari ka use kuch yu inaam mila (One who is up for sale has been given the job of selling, got a reward for being a traitor)."

Criticising Mr Srinivas for the post, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia said the Congress stooping to such levels to target a "young and enterprising" leader like Jyotiraditya Scindia shows its frustration.
