New Delhi: A video of French footballer Paul Pogba goofing around, shared days after the FIFA World Cup ended with France’s 2:1 victory over Croatia, was used by the Congress in a meme to make a point.
Congress’ official Twitter handle posted a GIF of Pogba appearing to search for someone, with the text: “When someone says Achhe Din”, and captioned it: “Pogba and us, same feels.”

Commenting on the tweet someone changed the caption and used the same video to hit out at Rahul Gandhi. The user @TheGuruGhantal, wrote, “Here fixed it” and shared the same video which had the following text: Looking for a Congress leader who can compete against Modi”

As the general election 2019 nears, the Congress took to attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s biggest let-down — “Acche Din(good times)”. The phrase also became the source of many memes on the Modi government over demonetisation and other steps, over the years.
