The BJP workers of Raipur took to Twitter saying that this act mirrors the mentality of the Congress and their intention to break the unity of India.
Responding to the incident, a Congress party member, Jayavardhan Birsa, clarified that the picture was a printing mistake that happened while it was being compressed. He also said that as the party stands for the integrity of the nation it had immediately removed the picture and rendered an apology.
