After suffering a heavy defeat in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Rahul Gandhi’s office in a tweet has congratulated the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for his unprecedented victory. To that Narendra Modi instantly replied, thank you and long live democracy!.The one-time foes, who constantly attacked each other during the campaign trail, today buried their hatchet and congratulated each other setting a good trend of bipartisanship. This is a good cue from the US politics. It may be recalled that earlier, during his election rallies Rahul Gandhi had attacked Modi saying the following:
Modi’s film of ‘achhe din’ has flopped. You will not be able to watch it anymore. You work hard and Narendra Modi gives the benefit of your hardwork to 50 families of his choice. We will give you the benefits of your labour.Modi thinks that he does everything himself. The ISRO launched rocket into space, Modi says he did it. He goes to America to meet (former US president) Barack Obama. Modi tells Sushma Swaraj to sit back home as you are not required there, I am going to America.
Here is the tweet where Rahul Gandhi congratulated PM Modi over Utter Pradesh victory:
