BJP mocks Rahul over 'Rs63,000 jacket'

'Your constituency, your responsibility' launched

"Your indifference mocks us!" tweeted the Meghalaya BJP unit, along with a picture of the jacket's original photo and one of Rahul Gandhi attending the concert. The ruling BJP which has been quietly sulking over regular taunts against its top leaders by the Congress president has chose to pay him back in his own coin.

In an apparent retort to Rahul Gandhis suit-boot ki sarkar jibe, the BJP has claimed the Congress President wore a jacket worth Dollars 995 at a concert oragnised by his party in the poll-bound state while being "indifferent" to the woes of people. He said in Shillong, "You will not see him (the PM) hug a poor person, talk to a poor person or even engage with a poor person".

Gandhi had used the "suit-boot" term to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his famous name-striped suit worn during former USA president Barack Obama's visit. Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient government in Meghalaya.

Meanwhile, slamming the BJP, Chowdhury said that the saffron party was "frustrated" due to Rahul's "rising popularity".

"So, soot (pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with "black" money fleeced from Meghalayan state exchequer by rampant corruption?"

The old woman with tears in her eyes sought the help of Rahul Gandhi saying she is facing a lot of problem to treat her ailment. You mean to say they have not other work and are searching online for the rates of the jackets.

Unitarian Church leader Derrick P Pariat said his group had an interactive meeting with the Gandhi scion in which they "agreed to disagree" on a lot of issues. Rahul Gandhi connects with the young. The suit was later auctioned and bought for over 4.3 crore by a Surat businessman.

The Congress president was in Shillong to kick off the election campaign of the party in poll-bound Meghalaya.

Praising the holding of the event since it connected people, particularly the youth, the Congress leader said that it was important that all Indians realised that the country was strong when we loved and respected each other.
