    Congress ad has lifted pictures from UNICEF showing a starving SL child after the tsunami. Earlier Gujarat Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia had put up an image of an African child as a malnourished Gujarati kid.

    Why BJP men are circulating this Congress ad online? Have a look

    Gujarat BJP workers and fans are circulating this image on internet via email and Facebook rapidly. The image shows how Gujarat Congress used Srilankan child to show alleged malnutrition in Gujarat in its anti-govt advertisement campaign.

    Fixing a photograph from the other land to show malnutrition in Gujarat is not new practice. In past Gujarat Congress leader had shown African child’s photo in his blog post on malnutrition in Gujarat.

    They could not find much malnutrition in Gujrat, so they had to go down south, cross the Palk Strait and find a malnourished child.
    Congress is a morally bankrupt and grossly unethical party. In a way, their conduct fails to surprise. Those who stay in power after 6-7 scams back to back, cannot be expected to play fair.
    Anyway, it for the people of the country to decide if they want 60 more years of 'secular' poverty and regression or 5 more years of 'communal' prosperity and progress.
    IMHO, the Gujratis are too clever for the Congress. :cool2:

    Great.

    They must have had some 50 cent company of our neighbour who make much of India's malnutrition on their payroll?

    Notwithstanding, the fun begins.

    The media will rake in huge profits reporting all these lovely tricks being played.

    Sri Lankan flood victim' in Gujarat Congress' poll campaign ad

    AHMEDABAD: Congress's Gujarat unit was at the centre of a row on Monday over a picture it used for a poll advertisement on malnutrition in the state amid allegations it was 'lifted' from a website of a Christian organization depicting a Sri Lankan child.

    Gujarat Congress party's "Join hands for change" advertisements which appeared in some newspapers and posted on its website claims that 45 per cent of children in the state were malnourished. A photograph in the ad also showed a malnourished child in the arms of a woman.

    The social media, however, went abuzz with claims that the picture of the skinny and malnourished baby was, in fact, a victim of flood in Sri Lanka which was lifted from the web site of a Christan organization called Amyand Park Chaple (amyand.com) with one pro-BJP website even providing 'Link' to view the original picture.

    Finding itself in an awkward situation, the Congress in an effort to counter the BJP charge, alleged that the ruling party was deflecting the main issue of malnutrition.

    "The photograph is symbolic and rather than focussing on the picture, the BJP should counter the figures given in the advertisement," said Siddharth Patel, in charge of Gujarat state Congress' poll campaign while talking to newsmen.

    "Around 45 per cent of children in Gujarat are malnourished. Can BJP deny this fact?", Patel asked.

    The advertisement says: "Visit any community health centre or primary health centre, it is the same picture where staff is missing, be it specialist, doctors or support staff."

    The BJP has seized the opportunity to take on the Congress, calling the poll ad a "dishonest campaign".

    "The Congress campaign in Gujarat has not been based on facts at all. It has been based on absolute fictitious facts," BJP leader Balbir Punj said in New Delhi.

    In Ahmedabad, BJP spokesperson Jagdish Bhavsar demanded an apology from the Congress.

    "This is one of the proofs of Congress party's character which has resorted to malign Gujarat by spreading lies for the past so many months. They should apologize to the people of the state for showing wrong photographs," he said.

    If you see the under 5 malnourishment in India. its always around 50%(give or take). But poverty levels are usually 25-30%(take this poverty index with a pinch of salt). So if we examine carefully, poverty is NOT the cause for malnourishment, but ignorance(not illiteracy either, considering the literacy rate too is around 75%) is! So I really cant understand why they use this malnutrition as a indicator for societal well being :noidea:. I even asked my SPM mam about this but she could not give me an answer...
