New Delhi: ‘Yuva Desh’, the ‘Indian Youth Congress’ online magazine, tweeted a derogatory meme attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Tuesday. The online magazine tweeted a picture of Prime Minister Modi in conversation with United States President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
PM Modi can be seen asking them if they were aware about the various ‘memes’ that have been circulated on the social media by the Opposition against him. Hours after the tweet was put out, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani took notice and asked if Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi would approve of such a jibe at the country’s head.
“This blatantly classist and anti-poor Tweet by the Youth Congress shows their mindset towards India’s poor. Does Crown Prince @OfficeOfRG support this?” tweeted Rupani.
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah also reacted to the tweet.
“What is about elements of the Congress party that commit political suicide with such amazing regularity? This tweet is in such poor taste,” he posted.
Yuva Desh’s original tweet, however, now stands deleted. This is not the first time the Congress has taken reference to the prime minister’s beginning as a tea vendor.
