On her Facebook page –
“Remember this pic? Shehzada and #ScamQueenSonia graciously mixing with commoners and getting all the credit, while poor loyal family servant Ramukaka is left holding Mithai Ka Dabba?
#AugustaWestland is exactly like that, as Miyan Patel proved last night on Times Now, when he distanced ‘his party and his leader’ from ‘the (UPA) govt’.”
She tweeted the same photo in Sep 2017 with following text
“Rare pic of Manmohan Singh celebrating his birthday by holding the Mithai Ka Dabba while d Sultana n Shehzada graciously mingle w d masses“

Ex PM Manmohan Singh was holding the sweet box to gift to kids himself, not for anyone else
The viral photo is juts a part of an event, Rahul Gandhi gave the girl box already which he had and Ex-PM Manmohan Singh is holding his own box which he is about to give.
The photo is 5 years old, 2015

Is No. 3 a proof that Manmohan singh is Gandhi Family’s ‘Loyal servant” “वफादार नौकर”? No. It’s a twisted lie.
Was MMS made to stand holding a Mithai box in hand like a servant ?
All, Sonia, Rahul and Manmohan were holding their own sweet boxes, it’s just about the timing of photo & selection of one photo out of a lot.
This event, celebration of 69th Independence day, was held at All India Congress Committee Headquarters and was attended only by Party workers and kids were theirs too. Sonia Gandhi, being the President of the party stands first followed by Rahul Gandhi who was a Vice President, followed by ExPM Manmohan Singh.
Following is the set of photos –
1. Sonia Gandhi offering the sweet box to the kid
2. Rahul Gandhi offering the sweet box to a different girl
3. Rahul Gandhi Bending and talking to the same girl
4. Ex PM Manmohan SIngh offering the box he was holding to the girl
At times Photos can be deceiving, just last month, media, congress and AAP guys made a photo of Parikar viral claiming he was sleeping during parade. Many of you asked me whether it was the truth or not. I looked for the video clip on youtube and unfortunately the scene changed as soon as Parikar looked down.
It had two possibilities,
1- he just looked down for a while,
2 – he really fell asleep
Only way to confirm was whether he looked up again or remained like that, which was not in video.
But here in this case, only one photo was shown to prove Manmohan as servant of Gandhis.
