The Hush Post: Before taking his mother Sonia Gandhi for her annual medical check-up, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the “media troll army” of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the form of a tweet on Sunday. The latter paid the Gandhi scion in the same coin, a tweet taking a retaliatory jibe at him.
In his tweet, Rahul Gandhi gave a message to the BJP asking the saffron party’s “social media troll army” to not get too worked up over his absence. In a retaliatory tweet, the BJP took a jibe at Gandhi saying, “Everyone on social media hopes that you will keep us entertained from there too.”
The saffron party also questioned if the Congress President could ensure that a Cabinet expansion takes place in Karnataka before he leaves. “We wish well for Sonia ji’s health. Women of Karnataka also await Cabinet formation so that the state Govt can start serving them. Can you ensure Karnataka gets a working Govt before you leave,” BJP’s tweet read.
The Congress chief left abroad with mother Sonia Gandhi on Sunday night for her annual medical check-up. She underwent a surgery in the United States (US) in 2011. While Rahul Gandhi will return within a week, Sonia Gandhi is likely to stay there for a longer duration, a report said.
Wary of the furor that happens whenever he goes on a holiday, the Congress President on Sunday had tweeted: “Will be out of India for a few days, accompanying Sonia ji to her annual medical check up. To my friends in the BJP social media troll army: don’t get too worked up…I’ll be back soon!”
