Amaravati: While political battles are fought hard on the ground among the leaders and supporters of rival political parties, the same are finding a prominent place on social media platform Twitter with a dash of creativity.
A case in point is the bitter political battle in Andhra Pradesh between the Telugu Desam Party ( TDP ) and the Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP).
The Tricolour has, unfortunately, become the latest tool of a political fight between TDP and YSRCP, and that too on Twitter.
A few days ago, TDP president Nara Chandrababu Naidu had tweeted a before and after photo of a panchayat building in Andhra Pradesh wherein the tricolour was repainted in YSRCP colours of blue, green and white.
Now, in the latest development, TDP president has tweeted a photo of a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the pedestal of which is seen in YSRCP colours wherein Naidu says, "Not learning lessons after drawing flak for disrespecting the national tricolour, @ysjagan's govt is back to showing true colours. In Vizianagaram district, the pedestal of Gandhiji's statue has been painted in party colours. Why this arrogance ?'' with #YSRCPDisrespectsMahatma.
Not learning lessons after drawing flak for disrespecting the national tricolor, @ysjagan’s Govt is back to showing its true colours. In Vizianagaram Dist, the pedestal of Gandhiji’s statue has been painted in party colours again. Why this arrogance? #YSRCPDisrespectsMahatma pic.twitter.com/OClCZIkXYv

However, the YSRCP immediately posted the same photo with Mahatma Gandhi statue pedestal in white colour while pointing out "TDP photoshop centre'' with #TDPJSPFakePropaganda wherein the tweet says, "The inconsistency in images and writings shows how low @PavanKalyan and @ncbn are willing to go to conspire against the government.''
