New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday took a dig at the Narendra Modi government at the Centre for using the symbol of lotus in the logo of India’s G20 presidency.

Taking to Twitter, Congress general secretary in-charge Communications Jairam Ramesh wrote, “Over 70 years ago, Nehru rejected the proposal to make Congress flag the flag of India.

“Now,BJP’s election symbol has become official logo for India’s presidency of G20! While shocking,we know by now that Mr Modi and BJP won’t lose any opportunity to promote themselves!.”

The statement of the senior Congress leader comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the logo, theme and website of India’s G-20 presidency.

Modi had said that from December 1, India will preside over the G-20 Summit and called it ‘historic’ opportunity for the country. The lotus in the logo of G-20 is a symbol of hope in such tough times, Modi said.

Lotus is also the national flower of India.
