Vadra's husband Robert on Sunday was trolled on after he wrongly posted a flag with a picture showing his inked finger after voting here.

Though he later replaced the Paraguayan flag with the Indian tricolour and admitted his mistake, Robert could not escape criticism from Twitterati.

"Our right our strength !! Everyone must step out n vote... we need all support, to create a combined future for our loved ones, n for a secular, safe, productive future for our country (sic)," he posted on with a photograph of him holding up his inked index finger.

However, with the post he had of the red, white and blue Paraguayan flag.

A few hours later, he edited his post and put another one with an Indian flag.

"lives in my heart and I salute Tiranga. Using a flag in my post was just an aberration. I very well know that 'You all know it was posted by mistake" but you decided to 'play up my mistake', when there are such glaring issues to be discussed.

"It saddens me, but never mind!! My best wishes...," he said in his fresh post after admitting the mistake.

Earlier in the day, Robert voted along with Vadra at a polling booth next to their residence.
