New Delhi: Bharatiya Janta Party’s national information and technology in-charge Amit Malviya took to Twitter on Thursday to accuse the Congress of running anti-Modi advertisements in Pakistan.

“Official Congress page sponsoring ads on Facebook in Pakistan to remove Modi,” he tweeted.

The tweet also included a screenshot of the official page of the Congress that shows an advertisement titled “Desh bachao, Modi hatao (Save the nation, remove Modi). The screenshot also shows the location where the advertisement is being run — Pakistan.

This is not the first time that Pakistan has supported Rahul Gandhi and opposed Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A tweet by Congress head Rahul Gandhi, dated September 21 reads: “The PM and Anil Ambani jointly carried out a One Hundred & Thirty Thousand Crore, SURGICAL STRIKE on the Indian Defence forces. Modi Ji, you dishonoured the blood of our martyred soldiers. Shame on you. You betrayed India's soul.”  

Pakistani journalist and author Hamid Mir picked up from where Rahul left. “This tweet of Rahul Gandhi was like a surgical strike on Narendra Modi. This one tweet unnerved many of those who were part of Rafale deal so they are now threatening Pakistan just to divert the attention from a big corruption scandal,” said Mir. 

In another instance, Pakistani politician and retired Federal Investigation Agency officer Rehman Malik tweeted, “Rahul is your next PM as he is talking sense in his pressers. PM Modi is scared of him.”

In a reply to MyNation's query, Congress social media head Divya Spandana simply said, "He (Amit Malviya) is hallucinating."

Also in a separate statement, Hasiba Amin of the Congress social media department said, "It's fake news. Nothing of that sort is being done. You can go check our Facebook page and the active ads yourself."
