Puducherry Congress says Droupadi Murmu will be ‘dummy President’, BJP reacts

The tweet now stands deleted. Murmu, if victorious in the July 18 polls, will be the first tribal woman and second female to be the country’s President.

The BJP on Wednesday accused the Congress’s Puducherry unit of insulting the country’s tribal community and women, sharing the screenshot of a now-deleted tweet, in which INC Puducherry said Droupadi Murmu, the BJP’s candidate for the upcoming presidential polls, will be a ‘dummy President’.

“Congress has started insulting Tribal Community & Women. Official handle of Congress labels Draupadi Murmu Ji as “dummy”. 1st woman tribal leader from Odisha to serve as Jharkhand Gov,2 time MLA, someone who worked her way up being insulted!!” tweeted BJP’s national spokesperson, Shehzad Poonawalla.

Clicking on the link to INC Puducherry’s said post leads to the message that ‘this page doesn’t exist’.

“BJP want a dummy as President and at the same time they want to cheat SC/ST,” the tweet, posted at 11:37am on Wednesday, a day after Murmu’s candidature was announced, read.
