Rahul Gandhi and the Indian National Congress took to twitter to express their condolences.

But they made one small but important mistake. They tweeted that the former speaker was a 10 term MP. Whereas he was a 9 term MP.

The former Lok Sabha Speaker and expelled member of the CPM died just after 8 am today at a hospital in Kolkata. He had been in and out of hospital since June-end after
suffering a stroke. Mr Chatterjee had celebrated his 89th birthday on July 2

Lok Sabha Speaker from 2004 to 2009, Mr Chatterjee was a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) for 40 years since 1968, represented the party 10 times in
parliament, and was acknowledged as one of its most brilliant ever.
