BJP, Congress lock horns over Rahul's jacket

Benedict playing the flute

Shillong: Congress President Rahul Gandhi today criticised the RSS over alleged lack of importance to women in the organisation, saying the presence of women in a leadership role there was "zero". Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient government in Meghalaya.

The tweet made by the BJP referred to Rahul Gandhi's comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi running a "suit-boot" government when the PM wore a Rs 10 lakh bandh-gala suit with his name monogrammed on it during a meeting with then-US President Barack Obama in 2015.

The jacket is a two-in-one down puffer jacket from Burberry - a British luxury fashion brand. Five musical bands, including Shillong-based Soulmates, performed at the concert themed "celebrate peace and way of life", a celebration of Meghalaya's music, culture and way of life. Promising the crowd that he would again visit Meghalaya, the Congress chief said "My visit is not for a day, but for several days, wherein I will travel around the state and talk to youngsters, listen to their issues and try to understand what their dreams and aspirations and I will definitely be back here very soon". Congress not even in reckoning in Tripura n Nagaland. Congress left northeast poor and underdeveloped while their leaders roam around in Rs70,000 jackets, Madhav said.

"I don't know whether to laugh or to cry at the desperation of the BJP". You will see him with others.

The tweet suggesting that the jacket worn by Gandhi was bought with black money, drew a sharp reaction from Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury, who alleged the BJP was leading a "suit-boot ki sarkar" at the Center, and had no moral authority to question Gandhi.

"He has a 56 inch chest". This (allegation) is coming from a suit boot sarkar. Children of normal middle-income families quite often wear such clothes where price-tag of just rupees 64000 (less after normal discounts) for a jacket is not at all significant in life-style of present days.
