Congress deletes tweet after being schooled for Padma Shri remark in condolence message

The Congress party formed for it a degenerate spot in posting a condolence message for Sridevi’s death. In addition, there also was an immediate backlash that the party had to bear.

The official handle of the party had tweeted the following message- “We regret to hear about the passing away of Sridevi. A legend who will continue to live in our hearts through her stellar body of work. Our deepest condolence to her loved ones. She was awarded the Padma Shri by the UPA govt in 2013.”

The post didn’t go well with the public and they soon made the party handle bear the brunt. In response to the backlash, the party deleted the tweet and posted a series of messages praising her work. This was their way of damage control.

After dropping down the old tweet a second tweet was made. It spoke of the awards won by Sridevi.

In the series came a third tweet praising her for making a comeback with ‘English Vinglish’. Congress tried hard but couldn’t control the incessant criticism.

The sudden death of Sridevi has left the country shocked. She reportedly died of a cardiac arrest on Saturday in Dubai. She was there to attend the wedding of actor Mohit Marwah, a nephew of the Kapoor family.

Sridevi was an epitome of elegance and royalty whose loss has left a vacant spot in the future of Indian cinema.
