Rahul Gandhi’s “Rs 41,000 T-Shirt” Stitches New BJP vs Congress Face-Off

New Delhi:

Rahul Gandhi’s “suit boot ka Sarkaar” jibe against the government of Narendra Modi was again bounced back with interest by the BJP today. The party claimed the congress leader was wearing a T-shirt worth more than Rs 41,000 from British luxury brand Burberry while on his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” – intended to develop a bond with the common man. While the Congress tweeted the inevitable reminder of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “10 lakh suit”, Mahua Moitra of the Trinamool Congress warned the BJP not to “cross the border”.

“Seriously advise BJP not to cross the line and comment on the opposition’s personal clothing and belongings. Remember that if we do the same with watches, pens, shoes, rings and clothing worn by BJP MPs, you will day you started this game you will regret it.” read her tweet.

“Bharat Dekho (Look, India),” the BJP previously tweeted, providing a screenshot of the garment in the Burberry catalog with the price tag – Rs 41,257.

“Hey… are you afraid? See the crowd gathered in Bharat Jodo Yatra. Talk about the issue. Talk about unemployment and inflation. If we have to talk about the clothes, Modi ji’s suit of 10 lakhs and glasses of 1.5 lakhs should be discussed. Does the BJP want to talk about this?” the Congress replied.

“Sometimes black magic, sometimes the cost of T-shirts is the problem. The prime minister is away from the real problems of the country. Prime Minister, come on the real problems, don’t let the people be misled like that,” read a crude translation of a other Hindi tweet from the party’s official address.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said that while the Congress unites the nation, the BJP is “still trapped in T-shirts and khaki shorts”.

“The Center only has a ‘T-shirt’ against the greatest Bharat Jodo Yatra,” he told media.

Priyanka Chaturvedi of Shiv Sena replied that only if the BJP could have calculated so quickly what the costs were of ‘choosing the pack book sarkar’.

Mr Gandhi, who accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of wearing a suit worth Rs 10 lakh and devised the “suit-boot-kar Sarkar” jibe ahead of the 2019 general election, has since faced copycat allegations. complaints from the BJP.

In 2018, when he showed up for a concert in Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, in a black convertible jacket and jeans, the BJP had recreated the moment of the ‘pack boot’.

“So @OfficeOfRG, soot (pun intended!) – boot ki sarkar with ‘black’ money stolen from Meghalayan’s treasury through rampant corruption? Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report of your inefficient government in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us!” the BJP had tweeted.

The jacket was a Burberry, the party claimed, and cost about 70,000, the party claimed he took another screenshot of a Burberry catalog.

Prime Minister Modi’s name-striped suit worn during former US President Barack Obama’s visit in 2015 was later auctioned off by the party and sold for Rs 4.31 crore.
