Thankfully, NDA has just one more year, says Rahul Gandhi

Suit Boot’ on other foot BJP goes after Rahul Gandhi’s ‘expensive’ jacket

The tweet was an apparent bid to get even with the Congress leader who in 2015 mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to wear a suit embroidered with his name during the visit of then U.S. president Barack Obama. The party's state unit also tweeted an image of a Burberry jacket, similar to the one that Gandhi wore, having a price tag of $995 (little over Rs 63,000).

Congress president Rahul Gandhi surprised his co-passengers by helping them arrange the luggage in the overhead cabin space on the Delhi to Guhawati flight on Tuesday.

As Meghalaya is inching towards polls, the issue of "development" is soaring the political temperature of this hill state with BJP demanding "report card" on the same from the ruling Congress Government.

The politics over the jacket started because Gandhi had taken a jibe at Modi and called it a "suit-boot ka sarkar" (a government for corporates).

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, BJP State president, Shibun Lyngdoh said, " The people of Meghalaya are not for sale and we do not believe in buying and selling of votes neither through people nor through religious institutions".


However, the Congress rebutted the BJP's claim, saying the same jacket was available for Rs700.

"How does it matter?"

The BJP also accused the Congress of distracting voters by organising a soiree.

"Their frustration is directly proportionate to the rising popularity of Rahul Gandhi". For a meeting with former USA president Barack Obama, Modi wore a suit that had his name in gold embroidery.
