The Congress party today invited sharp criticism from several quarters after a photo of its Delhi unit leaders, who were to sit on a hunger-strike to promote harmony, eating chhole-bhature at a popular eatery in Chandani Chowk went viral on social media. The photo was released by Delhi BJP leader Harish Khurana on his Twitter handle. The photo features Congress’ Delhi unit president Ajay Maken, senior leader Arvinder Singh Lovely and Haroon Yusuf.

Speaking to FinancialExpress.com, Khurana said that the picture exposes the dual face of the Congress party. He claimed that the photo was clicked at the famous Chaina Ram Sweets located in Chandani Chowk area of Old Delhi.

The BJP utlised this opportunity to attack the Congress, accusing it of dividing the society on the basis of caste and religion. Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said Rahul Gandhi is insulting the Dalits and people will punish the Congress party.

Meanwhile, when Lovely was quizzed about the photo, he said that the photo was clicked before 8 am and that the ‘symbolic’ fast began at 10:30 am.

Khurana’s tweet was retweeted nearly 700 times and liked by over 1000 people. People also reacted to his tweet to take a jibe at Rahul Gandhi and his style of leadership. Given below are some of the interesting ones:
