New Delhi: The Congress party was left red faced after one of its leaders mixed up the names of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra at a public rally. The video of the three-time MLA from Delhi’s Bawana constituency Surender Kumar, wherein he mistakenly hailed the Bollywood actor has gone viral on the social media.
In the video, Kumar can be heard raising slogans of ‘Sonia Gandhi zindabad! Congress party zindabad! Rahul Gandhi zindabad! Priyanka Chopra zindabad!’ Soon after realising his mistake, Kumar apologised and said, “Priyanka Gandhi Zindabad.”The Congress’ Delhi unit chief Subhash Chopra, who was also present on the stage was left surprised over the Bawana MLA’s blunder.

Following the Congress’ leader’s blunder, Priyanka Chopra trended with thousands of tweets. Besides, the Congress party was also trolled on the Twitter.
“Since when has Priyanka Chopra joined the Congress?” a Twitter user asked mocking the grand old party.
One user shared a morphed image of Indira Gandhi to look like Priyanka Chopra.
Referring to industrialist Rahul Bajaj, whose name was also trending yesterday, a Twitter user said,”Thank God!! Rahul G either didn’t attend or skipped that rally or was not invited for that rally. Surely, they would have shouted #RahulBajaj zindabad.”
Apart from common people, politicians also took dig at the grand old party. Akal Dal leader and MLA from Rajouri Garden Manjinder Singh Sira said,”In the Congress rally, slogans are being raised for Priyanka Chopra, it seems the whole party is ‘pappu’.
At present, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is residing in USA with her husband Nick Jonas. She had tied the knot with the American pop singer last year in Jodhpur.
