NEW DELHI — After the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took a dig at Rahul Gandhi indulging in sub-standard criticism by suggesting the price of the T-shirt which the Congress leader wore during the Bharat Jodo Yatra on first day, Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra warned the BJP against ‘crossing the lines.’
Taking to Twitter, Mahua Moitra on Saurday said, “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.”
The BJP on Friday took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi by suggesting that the T-shirt he wore during a part of the ongoing “Bharat Jodo Yatra” cost more than Rs 41,000.
“Bharat, dekho,” (India, look), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) tweeted from its handle and posted two pictures, one of Gandhi and the other showing the price of a T-shirt similar to the one he was wearing. The Burberry T-shirt cost Rs 41,257, it claimed.
Earlier, Moitra was targeted by BJP leaders for her ‘expensive’ Louis Vuitton bag.
Shiv Sena MP and former Congress leader Priyanka Chaturvedi mocked the BJP in a tweet in Hindi, saying that what speed BJP have shown in finding out the cost of a T-shirt and that only the BJP could have calculated the cost of “electing the suit-book sarkar” so quickly.
Reacting on the BJP’s t-shirt jibe, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel said, “The Centre has only a ‘T-shirt’ against the biggest Bharat Jodo Yatra.” “While the Congress is engaged in uniting the country, the ruling party is still entrapped in T-shirts and khaki shorts,” he said, according to media reports.
