Former Congress MLA Surender Kumar on Sunday made a huge blunder during a public rally by mistakenly stating “Priyanka Chopra Zindabaad” instead of cheering for party leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

The video of the rally has gone viral on social media since, wherein the three-time MLA from Bawana can be heard saying “Sonia Gandhi Zindabad, Congress Party Zindabad, Rahul Gandhi Zindabad, Priyanka Chopra Zindabad.”

Immediately after realising his mistake, Kumar apologised and corrected himself and said, “Priyanka Gandhi Zindabad”.

This faux pas cost the politician as he became a butt of jokes for Twitter. While some asked Priyanka Chopra to contest elections, others had a good laugh saying the actor has joined Congress. Others even pointed out that Priyanka Chopra has received her anniversary gift.

Akali Dal leader and MLA from Rajouri Garden, Manjinder Singh Sirsa also took a dig at Congress leader and said: “In the Congress rally, slogans are being raised for Priyanka Chopra. It seems the whole party is Pappu.”
