People have been talking a lot about the Indian National Congress Party’s president, Rahul Gandhi these days. No, he hasn’t made any dumb mistake while giving a speech, in fact it was his jacket that he wore in a program in Meghalaya that made him trend on social media.
RaGa is doing campaigning in the north-eastern state for the state elections that are going to held in February. His jacket started trending on social media when the Congress president attended a program entitled ‘Celebration of Peace’. BJP’s Meghalaya unit searched about the black jacket that RaGa wore in the function and found out that it is two-in-one down puffer jacket from the British luxury fashion brand Burberry listed for Rs 70,000 (approx.) on the Bloomingdales website.
Rahul Gandhi has often commented on BJP and called it a “soot-boot ki sarkar”. Now using similar terms BJP took a dig at Congress Party, and BJP Meghalaya posted a tweet trolling the opposition party by posting the price of the jacket that RaGa wore in the function. Take a look at their tweet here:
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! pic.twitter.com/sRvj5eoyRb

Taking trolling to another level, BJP leader Tajinder P Singh Bagga Paytm-ed Rs 700 to Renuka Chowdhury and asked her to send him the similar jacket RaGa wore in the function. He even posted a screenshot of the mail as proof.
