NEW DELHI: The Congress apologised for posting a five-month-old video to highlight the chasm between PM Modi and chief minister Vasundhara Raje in poll-bound Rajasthan.

The state will have assembly polls by year end in which the Congress is hopeful of staging a comeback.

The said video showing anti-Raje slogans being raised at a Modi rally was allegedly linked to the PM's visit to Jaipur on Saturday last week and soon led to a war of words between the social media heads of the two parties.

"Congress scores a self goal (as always) on Twitter. Claims a 5-month-old video is from the prime minister's rally in Jaipur on Saturday," BJP IT cell in charge Amit Malviya Tweeted.

Congress' social media in charge Divya Spandana was quick to reply.

"Apologies: apparently this video is from March and not yesterday...gosh Rajasthan BJP lost it that long back," Divya tweeted. She further said that though her department had made a mistake, the issue of infighting in the BJP raised by the Congress was correct.

"Yes we did make that mistake. But the content is real. Will you acknowledge Amit? Be a man, you can," Divya tweeted.

The Congress leader had earlier tried uploading the said video on Facebook but could not succeed, prompting her to shoot queries at the social media platform and even allege that Modi was trying to gain control over Facebook while losing control on cadre.

The Congress social media team has been posting several videos in the past to convey the party message and expose the Modi government's policies.

One of the videos appealed PM to unfollow the trolls who have been using foul language against women and threatening them.
