BJP takes dig at Rahul Gandhi over his T-shirt price, Congress says ruling party ‘scared’ | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: BJP on Friday took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi by suggesting that he was wearing a T-shirt costing over Rs 41,000 while taking part in the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Taking to Twitter, BJP posted a collage of Rahul’s photos on one side and a white Burberry T-shirt similar to the one he was seen wearing on the other and claimed that it costs rupees 41,257. The saffron party also put out a cryptic caption — “Bharat, dekho!”
Congress hit back, saying, “Hey… are you scared? Seeing the crowds gathered in Bharat Jodo Yatra. Talk about the issue… Speak on unemployment and inflation.” It further said, “If we have to discuss clothes, then it will go to Modi-ji’s Rs 10 lakh suit and his Rs 1.5 lakh glasses. Tell me what to do.”
Congress leader and its social media in-charge Supriya Shrinate also tweeted, “Dear BJP, It is visible how your senses have been blown off after seeing the mass revolution! How desperately rattled are you!!!”
Also, reacting with a swipe at Rahul Gandhi for his criticism that dialogue in the country has stopped under the Modi government, BJP said Congress’s connect with the masses and its own members has broken down, citing its poll losses and exodus of its leaders.
BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is all about launching Rahul as a contender for the prime ministerial face in the Opposition at a time when many other parties are flexing muscles and visiting Delhi, an apparent reference to Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar. “He is making claim to be on the list of prime ministerial aspirants in 2024,” Poonawalla told reporters.
