With the news of ‘a Congress leader who is also a lawyer joining BJP’ dancing all ower on Twitter, the Congress leader and lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi has opted the poetic route to silence the incessant buzz.
After almost an hour of the post, on Thursday contained two posters which included the words: “Gossip is the devil’s radio. So don’t be his DJ” and “For those who gossip about me: Thanks for making me the centre of your world.”
He indirectly thanked the people on Twitter for making him the centre of their world, with a touch of subtle sarcasm.
Abhishek Manu Singhvi is a senior advocate of the Supreme Court and has been serving for many years. He has also represented the Congress party many times. He is also the spokesperson of the Congress party. He is also a Member of Parliament representing West Bengal in the Rajya Sabha.
The messages didn’t hint what he intended but could be related to the ‘top Congress Leader to witch sides with BJP’ issue running as a hot topic on Twitter.
Randeep Singh Surjewala called the speculation ‘canards intended to tarnish reputations’. Randeep Singh is a Congress leader and the head of Congress party’s communications wing.
The ‘Congress leader cum lawyer’ in question was reported to be in touch with the BJP’s former President, Amit Shah, who still seems to have an enormous influence over the party’s political strategy, even though he is no longer the President.
The issue was also linked to the switch of Jyotiraditya Scindia from congress to BJP and that this happened with the help by the ‘Congress Lawyer’, who had provided legal cover for Jyotiraditya Scindia to be able to defeat the Kamal Nath-led Congress Government in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
