BJP Tamil Nadu tweeted on Twitter with a screenshot of an Amazon delivery receipt addressed to Abdullah's residence. The ordered package contained razors.

The Twitter handle of the Bharatiya Janata Party's Tamil Nadu unit is facing flak for sending Abdullah razors to shave his beard after some days of a viral image of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah wearing a scraggly beard, a faint smile and clear signs of ageing.

On January 25th 2020, an image went viral over social media, that pic was of a bedraggled Abdullah, the formerly prim, clean-shaven and groomed son of former J&K CM and Jammu & Kashmir National Conference chairman Farooq Abdullah.

This pic was evoking widespread criticism of what critics have termed "unconstitutional" detention.

The TN unit of BJP shared an image on Twitter to respond to the outrage of this and that also went viral, but for all the wrong reasons.

The tweet read:



"Dear Omar Abdullah," "It is very disheartening to see you like this while your corrupt friends are enjoying life outside".

"Kindly accept our sincere contribution, in case of any assistance, feel free to contact our counterpart (Congress) for further help in this regard)."

The image was which was attached with the tweet has the screenshot of an Amazon delivery receipt addressed to Abdullah's residence. The ordered package contained razors.

One can see that it seems that the BJP wrote an incorrect spelling of the road.

However, the tweet was soon deleted after outrage. The fact that Abdullah's address (albeit incorrectly spelled) was also displayed on the tweet could cause violation of Twitter's policies.

It is not clear why the tweet was removed.
