Expressing grief over the demise of Marshal of Indian Air Force Arjan Singh, who passed away on Saturday evening, Rahul made a faux pass by referring him as Air Marshal.
Marshal of Indian Air Force is five star rank while Air Marshal is four star rank.
"A soldier & diplomat power excellence. Air Marshal Arjan Singh demise is an irreparable loss. India has lost a true hero.
Deppeset condolences (sic)," he said in a tweet.
Rahul, however, took down the tweet later and tweeted the rectified one.
