Dhar (Madhya Pradesh): In a sharp critique, the Congress has taken aim at Union minister of state for women and child development Savitri Thakur, accusing her of incompetence after a public gaffe involving a 'Slogan Blunder' that happened in Dhar on Tuesday.

During an event for the 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' campaign at Brahmakundi High Secondary School in Dhar district, Thakur mistakenly wrote 'Bedhi Padao Bachao' instead of the correct slogan. This incident has sparked widespread criticism and has gone viral on social media.

Leader of Opposition Umang Singhar led the charge, questioning the capabilities of Thakur and the broader selection criteria of the ministers in Prime Minister Narendra Modiís government. Singhar took to the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, to express his concerns. He wrote, "What kind of leadership is this?? Does Prime Minister Narendra Modi want only #Rubber_Stamp ministers in his government? There is no set criterion for how a public representative should be, but at least he/she should have literacy!"

Singhar emphasised that a Union minister's inability to correctly write a simple slogan reflects poorly on the governmentís standards for leadership. "It can be understood what the children must have felt when they saw her writing wrong! What kind of leadership will her ignorance provide in the central government, it can only be imagined. Voters should also have thought before electing such a public representative! Modi government also does not want educated leaders who raise questions! Because, education does not only impart literacy, it also changes the thinking towards the upliftment of the society," he added.

The incident occurred during an entrance celebration programme, where Thakur was supposed to write the campaign's slogan on an awareness chariot.
