In the real world, the BJP and the Congress are at war but the virtual world brings prominent leaders of both the parties together – through a mistake. To mark the birth anniversary of Indian revolutionary Chandra Shekhar Azad, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Congress leader Ajay Maken, put up similar posts - both used a picture of Bhagat Singh!

Raman Singh at least took to Twitter and Facebook to apologise after correcting the error. Maken, however, just changed the picture and put up a new post. No wonder he got trolled!
