Amit Malviya of the BJP claims an ex-minister knotted Rahul Gandhi’s shoelaces; the Congress calls this “false news.”

On Wednesday, Congress leaders attacked BJP’s Amit Malviya after he claimed on Twitter that former Union Minister Jitendra Singh Alwar tied Rahul Gandhi’s shoelace during the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Singh requested an apology from Malviya and threatened legal action after clarifying that he had been tying his own shoelace and not Gandhi’s. Several Congress leaders criticised Malviya, with some even posting photographs of Rahul Gandhi’s shoes without laces to illustrate the point.

Malviya shared a video from the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Wednesday, in which Singh looked to be kneeling in front of Gandhi, who was facing him. The head of the BJP’s IT division claimed that Singh was lacing Gandhi’s shoes for him.

“Former minister of the union Bhanwar Jitendra Singh kneels to tie Rahul Gandhi’s shoelace. Instead of assisting himself, the conceited child is seen praising himself on the back,” Malviya tweeted.

Soon after, Singh addressed the controversy personally. Recounting the story, he stated that Gandhi was the one who noticed his undone shoelace. “When my shoelaces fell undone during the yatra, Rahul Gandhi ji noticed and requested me to tie them,” he explained. Apologize to Rahul Gandhi for misleading the nation by misrepresenting this minor issue.

Singh threatened to sue Malviya for defamation if he did not apologise and remove the offensive social media post.

Accusing Malviya of being a “false news spreader,” Congress leader Supriya Shrinate published images of Gandhi with Singh just moments before he halted to tie his shoelaces to demonstrate that the latter’s shoelace was unfastened. She tweeted, “Open your eyes and mind, apologise to Rahul ji, or be prepared for legal action.”

The Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress, which began more than a hundred days ago, entered Haryana from Rajasthan on Wednesday.
