Rahul seen wearing expensive jacket; know what BJP tweeted in response
The suit boot jibe of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi came back to haunt him as BJP took potshots at newly appointed party chief for his jacket, which they claim costs to the tune of Rs 70,000.
The jacket was seen worn by Rahul Gandhi as he attended the concert in Shillong as part of state election election camapaign.
“So @OfficeOfRG , soot(pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with ‘black’ money fleeced from Meghalayan State exchequer by rampant corruption? Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us! (sic)” wrote the Meghalaya BJP Twitter handle with pictures of the jacket’s original price and photo.
Rahul Gandhi spoke earlier to the crowd and said that country is strongest when it shows diversity and that India’s strength is its diverse culture and different languages.
Stating that every single person from all states has a space in the country, he noted that their dreams and aspirations are equally important, no matter how small or big a state is.
The Congress, which has been in power for nearly 15 years in the state, organised the concert to woo young voters for the February 27 elections.>
