The Congress on Thursday posted pictures on social media of its president Rahul Gandhi, who is currently in Germany as part of his four-day visit to Europe. However, the party inadvertently provided netizens at least a day's fodder for memes.
In the first batch of pictures, Rahul is seen looking in various directions while standing inside the German federal parliament Bundestag.

In the second batch, Rahul is seen walking through the well-lit 'Archive of German Members of Parliament', with his hand raised in one of the pictures, giving an illusion of him touching a lightbulb.
CP @RahulGandhi walks through the 'Archive of German Members of Parliament', the 'archive' has boxes labeled with every MP elected to the Bundestag from 1919 & 1999. The 'archive boxes' resemble brick walls, which are a metaphor for the foundation of the parliamentary structure. pic.twitter.com/o6Fi2ak5Sx — Congress (@INCIndia) August 23, 2018
Twitterati had a field day, as users shared memes made out of Rahul's photographs. Congress' main rival BJP, too, wasted no time in taking a dig at the party chief.
