New Delhi : With Lok Sabha elections 2019 coming up, social media has turned into a battleground for rival political factions. While the Bharatiya Janata Party and opposition parties are usually at loggerheads on social media platforms, the former’s Twitter handle has trolled Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over his attack on Narendra Modi’s alleged weakness on China.
In a scathing tweet, the BJP likened Gandhi to “Chinese products” that are “confused”, not durable, toxic and most of all a threat to the Indian market. Addressing Gandhi, the party wrote “ask your mom how your family ruined our foreign policies. Do some homework please.”
The tweet was in response to Gandhi’s criticism over the government’s response to China’s blocking of an initiative to tag Jaish-e Mohammad Chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist” by the United Nations Security Council. While India said it was disappointed” with the result, Gandhi wrote that the “weak” PM Modi is “scared of Xi”.
