Tamil Nadu: Rahul Gandhi taking a break from his pan India trek on Friday interacted with pastor George Ponnaiah at the Muttidichan Parai Church, Puliyoorkurichy.
This interaction has given opposition a chance to jibe at the grand old party. The BJP has sharing a clip of the interaction said- This man was arrested for his Hindu hatred earlier – he also said ‘I wear shoes because impurities of Bharat Mata should not contaminate us.’ Bharat Jodo with Bharat Todo icons?” The Congress, in turn, accused the BJP of running a “hate factory, alleging it has turned more desperate ever since the successful launch of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.
Earlier on Friday afternoon, Rahul Gandhi’s “suit boot ka Sarkaar” jibe at the Narendra Modi government was returned with interest by the BJP.
The party claimed that the Congress leader was sporting a Rs 41,000-plus T-Shirt from British luxury brand Burberry while on his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” meant to evolve a connect with the common man. As the Congress tweeted the inevitable reminder of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “10 lakh suit”, Trinamool Congress’s Mahua Moitra warned the BJP not to “cross the line”.
“Seriously advise BJP to not cross line & comment on Opposition’s personal clothes & belongings. Remember if we start doing the same with watches, pens, shoes, rings & clothes BJP MPs wear, you’ll rue the day you started this game,” her tweet read.
