Tale of 2 Holies: Kamal Nath photo-op trolled by People And Shivraj’s used to be a public affair

Must read

Bhopal: There are two photographs merged in one that you can see in this story. One has been posted by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on his twitter account giving ‘Happy Holi’ wishes to people. Another one is Holi celebration of former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan in 2018 when he was Chief Minister of the state. Keeping up with the tradition of photo sharing, MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath put up three Holi photo on Twitter.

However, the reactions to the photo were not quite as he must have expected. Kamal Nath, in the photo, can be seen standing against a green background with a multitude of colours on his face. Through the day MP CM has been trolled by netizens who pointed out that his kurta was totally spotless.

What’s Wrong with the Image?

Many of the Twitterati said that though there were many colours on Kamal Nath’s face, his kurta was almost clean and spotless. Netizens wondered how Nath had managed to play so much Holi and yet keep his white clothes spotless, leading a lot of them to speculate that the colours on his face were, in fact, staged for the image.

Former CM Shivraj used to make it grand and pompous

While Kamalnath kept social media messaging an extremely private affair, Shivraj used to make it grand and make the celebration a people-centric affair. The image that is shown at the top is of 2018 when Shivraj was the chief minister of the state. He used to make sure to sing ‘faag’ that is local traditional Holi folk and most of the times himself tried a hand with Dhol and Harmonium along with his followers.

Although this time Chauhan did not celebrate Holi and formally put a board outside his residence that read, “We are not celebrating Holi in the wake of Pulwama terror attack and the demise of senior BJP leader and Goa CM Manohar Parrikar. Happy Holi to you all.” He only wished a plain #HappyHoli message on Twitter this time.
