Uttar Pradesh is an old battle ground that somehow lends immense clout to the party ruling at the center. So obviously right now when Uttar Pradesh is gearing up for the elections, the political parties are all trying to outdo each other. So after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav’s SCAM acronyms, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi also decided to join the bandwagon and coin his own meaning for the acronym. Addressing a joint rally in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh the Nehru-Gandhi scion on February 5, 2017 said that for him S stands for ‘service’, C for ‘courage’, A for ’ability’ and M for ‘modesty’. Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi have joined hands and are fighting the elections together as collaboration. Rahul Gandhi made the remark about the acronym in the same rally where Akhilesh Yadav had given a reply to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. However, his expansion has left the Twitterati rolling on the floor laughing. They were still under considerable agitation after Narendra Modi’s and Akhilesh Yadav’s SCAM acronyms, but now Rahul Gandhi’s expansion proved to be the spice that was missing from the food.

The first one to start the’SCAM’ jibe was Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the people in Meerut. He said his party – Bharatiya Janata Party was against SCAM i.e “Samajwadi party, Congress, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati.” Akhilesh Yadav the present UP CM was quick to retort, he expanded the acronym as – “Save the country from Amit Shah and Modi.” Twitter users had a ball coming up with their versions. Some even had trouble deciding which one they liked best. Now it is Rahul Gandhi who is once again at the receiving end of Twitter users’ humour. Some reminded the Congress Vice President about 2G, Coal Scam, AgustaWestland, Bofors, etc. They came up with their own full form to the acronyms such as “Seva (Apni Family ki, Courage (to cheat the nation, Ability to (deceive Voters, Modesty (to tear kurta”. Twitterati had a field day trolling Rajiv Gandhi.

Smriti Irani gave a fitting reply to Rahul Gandhi’s meaning to the word ‘SCAM’ on Twitter. Check out her tweets below:
If only Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav tried harder to do a better job for their constituencies rather than coming up with these expansions for the acronym they will be in a better position to rule Uttar Pradesh. Hope Rahul Gandhi will think twice before he tries to take on Narendra Modi. Right now Rahul Gandhi – 0. Smriti Irani – 1 and Twitterati – 5.
