A few days ago, Rahul Gandh made comment at Narendra Modi’s government and termed it as “Suit boot ka Sarkaar” and now the saffron party leaders were claiming that Rahul Gandhi wore a tee which costs more than Rs. 41,000 and it’s from British luxury brand Burberry while on his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” – meant to evolve a connect with the common man. The Congress leaders tweeted about 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.
Now, the BJP tweeted, “Bharat Dekho (look, India),” the BJP tweeted earlier, giving a screenshot of the garment in the Burberry catalogue with the price display – Rs. 41,257.
“Hey… are you scared? Seeing the crowd gathered in Bharat Jodo Yatra. Talk about the issue. Speak on unemployment and inflation. If we have to discuss the clothes, then Modi ji’s suit of 10 lakhs and glasses of 1.5 lakhs should be discussed. Do the BJP want to discuss this?” the Congress responded.
“Sometimes black magic, sometimes the cost of T-shirts is the issue. The Prime Minister is away from the real issues of the country. Prime Minister, come on the real issues, don’t hoodwink the people like this,” read a rough translation of another Hindi tweet from the party’s official handle.
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said, “The Centre has only a ‘T-shirt’ against the biggest Bharat Jodo Yatra.”
