A day after Congress landed in spot after its youth wing magazine Yuva Sandesh posted a crude meme on PM Narendra Modi, Union Minister Smriti Irani slammed the Opposition party and said it cannot endure the prime minister as he has set the pace with his politics of development. Speaking to media a day after Yuva Sandesh posted the meme that showed Narendra Modi in conversation with US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May on Twitter (which was later deleted), she said that the person whom the Congress taunts as chaiwala is the one under whom the country has seen a jump in Moody’s as well as Ease of Doing Business rankings.

Pointing out that it was not new for them to mock Gujaratis, the minister said that the people of the state will definately give real response when state election results are announced.

A Twitter handle linked to Indian Youth Congress posted a crude meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday. The tweet was later deleted after Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and a number of BJP leaders hit out at the Congress. Rupani questioned Rahul Gandhi in a tweet: “This blatantly classist and anti-poor Tweet by the Youth Congress shows their mindset towards India’s poor. Does Crown Prince @OfficeOfRG support this?”

Going into damage control mode, the IYC said that the Twitter handle was not its official one and was run by volunteers. “Although the handle @Yuvadesh is being run by youth volunteers and not by @iyc ,we do not approve of such humour and apologise. Despite political differences with the BJP and having suffered everyday abuse from their leaders, we respect the Prime Minister and all political opponents,” Youth Congress president Amarinder Singh Raja Brar tweeted.

Hitting out at the Congress, BJP said that the tweet reflected the “arrogance” of the main Opposition party.

“The arrogance of the Congress Party and shameful anti-poor stand gets exposed from the official twitter of the Youth Congress that a person born in poverty in the family of a tea vendor cannot become the Prime Minister. No lessons learnt. Insulting popular mandate,” Ravi Shankar Prasad tweeted yesterday.
