ONI Bureau: Congress IT Cell Head Divya Spandana (Ramya) courted controversy yet again when she tweeted a distasteful comment against Prime Minister Narendra Modi comparing him to “bird dropping” drawing flak from netizens and senior journalists.
Spandana tweeted a picture of PM Modi standing at the feet of Sardar Patel’s 182-metre-tall statue in Gujarat, with the comment: “Is that bird dropping?”
However, Divya Spandana remained unfazed and defiant and accused the critics of trying to distort her tweet without offering any explanation or clarification. There has been a massive outrage as Divya hit a new low while attacking PM Modi.
The Congress party is yet to clarify on her tweet, but BJP hit back with the following message:
“Ummm no, it is the values of the Congress that are dropping.
Historical disdain for Sardar Patel + Pathological dislike for @narendramodi = Such language.
Clearly, @RahulGandhi’s politics of ‘love’!”

Congress sources say the party does not approve of this language used by Divya Spandana against the PM. Party should come on record. Once again, language used marks a low level in our politics https://t.co/ZrlRerjETx

First you ruin further the taste of our already rotten political discourse, then you insult our collective intelligence by claiming you’re referring to something else. This isn’t politics. How does this square with Rahul’s embrace of Modi with a pretense/promise of decency? https://t.co/ZpYF6YXzfk

Congress has a habit of digging their own grave. This is not just a sad tweet but reflects the mindset. They did not respect the chair of Prime Minister back then. They don’t do it even now. https://t.co/oDo3tqNcrY
