Controversy over ‘Surrender Modi’: What Rahul Gandhi did not say in his tweet, Sudhir Chaudhary of Zee News and other BJP leaders pronounced on Twitter


Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Sunday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘Surender Modi’ while taking a dig at his extraordinary statement giving a clean chit to China on the occupation of the Galwan Valley. But what caused social media to explode was Rahul’s clever attempt at wrongly spelling the word ‘surrender’ as ‘surender.’ No sooner did the Congress MP from Waynad post his tweet, BJP supporters moved in with lightning speed to point out that the word should have been ‘Surrender.’ Even though Rahul in his tweet did not pronounce the word ‘Surrender’, the prime minister’s supporters took it upon themselves to correct the Congress leader by pointing out that ‘Surender’ should have actually been ‘Surrender’!

Rahul Gandhi’s tweet had read, “Narendra Modi Is actually Surender Modi.”

Reacting to Rahul’s tweet, Sudhir Chaudhary of Zee News wrote, “Rahul Gandhi tweets again. 1. Spelling of ‘surrender’ is wrong.
2. Opposition leaders should rise above petty politics. At least during this time of crisis. 3. Such tweets help China and weaken India’s position. World will laugh at us. We should stand united.”

Close aides of Rahul Gandhi said that spelling surrender wrongly was a ploy to trap BJP supporters so that they could themselves address the prime minister as ‘Surrender Modi’ in their attempts to correct the Congress MP. Rahul appears to have succeeded in his attempt as many BJP supporters were seen doing precisely that on Twitter.

Even former Congress leader and BJP minister in the Assam government, Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted, “Mr @RahulGandhi -You’re so exasperated you can’t even spell correctly!
And surrendering has been hallmark of Gandhi-Nehru family. In 1962, Assam was almost given away by Pt Nehru. When Chinese Army had captured Bomdila, Nehru said, “My heart goes out to people of Assam.” Shame.”

This is not the first time that Rahul has attacked Modi for his extraordinary clean chit to China on the Galwan Valley skirmishes that led to the death of 20 Indian soldiers including one colonel rank army officer. Rahul had earlier said, “PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression. If the land was Chinese: 1. Why were our soldiers killed? 2. Where were they killed?”

The Armed forces veterans in India had exploded in anger after Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an extraordinary declaration giving a clean chit to China for their transgressions in Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh. The Indian army has already lost 20 soldiers including one colonel rank officer. Another 10 soldiers including two Majors were taken hostages by the Chinese army before being released on Thursday.
