Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has once again come in the line of the BJP’s fire after a video of him partying with friends at a nightclub emerged on social media on Tuesday (May 3).
Amit Malviya, the head of the BJP’s IT department, shared a video on Twitter purportedly showing Rahul Gandhi at a nightclub.
“Rahul Gandhi was at a nightclub when Mumbai was under seize. He is at a nightclub at a time when his party is exploding. He is consistent. Interestingly, soon after the Congress refused to outsource their presidency, hit jobs have begun on their Prime Ministerial candidate…,” Malviya tweeted on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Congress clarified that Rahul Gandhi is in Nepal to attend the wedding of a journalist friend.
Reportedly, the Congress leader was in Kathmandu to attend the wedding of his Nepali friend Sumnima Udas.
“Rahul Gandhi has not gone as an uninvited guest like Prime Minister Modi went to Pakistan to celebrate birthday and cut cakes for the then Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif. Rahul Gandhi has gone to a friendly country Nepal to participate in a private marriage function of a friend. By chance, the friend also happens to be a journalist. So I think they are also abusing your fraternity,” Congress communication department head Randeep Surjewala told reporters when he was asked about Rahul Gandhi’s whereabouts.
“Last when I checked, having a family in this country, having friends in this country, attending marriage, engagement ceremonies is a matter of our culture and civilization. It has still not become a crime in this country to be married, to be friends with someone, or to attend their marriage celebration,” Surjewala was quoted as saying by Indian Express at the AICC press conference.
“Maybe after today PM Modi and the BJP may decide that it is illegal to attend a marriage. They may say it is a crime to have friends or participate in family functions. But do let me know so that we all change our status, habits and civilizational practices of attending the marriage of friends as also family,” he added.
