Meme war in Mancherial: Congress calls rivals Pappu
With elections barely months away, the heat is on in Telangana. Nowhere is this so virulent as in the north-Telangana constituency of Mancherial. The ruling TRS and the Congress Party have already launched a poster campaign. The leaders of the two parties have also got into a meme war questioning the credentials of the possible contestants.

It all began with the BRS coming up with posters, memes and comments that claimed that the Congress leader and the possible party candidate Premsagar Rao was a Pekata Rayudu or gambler. The memes have the mugshots of Rao wearing prisoner's tunics and holding a slate. These memes became the talking points in the constituency.

Not to be outdone, the Congress came up with social media posts and memes that depicted sitting TRS MLA Diwakar Babu as a brainless person. "Deemagh (brain) lenodu" screamed the memes. With this, the social media war only intensified. Both the parties are now coming up with memes that deride the rival.

Meanwhile, sitting MLA Diwakar Babu's son Vijith too entered the fray. He was welcomed with memes. Strangely, the Congress, which is stung by the comments that term Rahul as Pappu (a dumbhead) called Vijith a Pappu. What more, the party also criticized Vijith claiming that someone who grew up abroad would not be able to understand the woes of the locals. The voters and citizens are having all the fun due to the poster and meme war in Mancherial.
