    Rahul Gandhi's remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos has left the BJP fuming. Hitting back at the Congress vice president, BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao tweeted that the governance model adopted by former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru made only the "Congressis" (Congress leaders) rich.

    "Dear @OfficeofRG This inequality is the disastrous consequence of your family's patented Nehru Congress's "Poverty Perpetuation" Model of Governance by which only Congressis became rich. Isn't your comment a case of pot calling the kettle black?" Narsimha Rao tweeted.

    Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Modi to tell the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos why the richest 1% of India's population controlled 73% of the wealth generated in the country last year.

    Rahul's tweet came only minutes after Modi finished his speech in Davos.

    "Dear PM, Welcome to Switzerland! Please tell DAVOS why 1% of India's population gets 73% of its wealth? I'm attaching a report for your ready reference," Rahul said in a tweet.

    Rahul cited a media report quoting a survey from Oxfam which had highlighted the vast gap between India's rich and the poor. On Monday, international rights groups Oxfam released a survey which said that the richest 1% in India owns 73% of the wealth generated in the country. The Congress leader suggested that PM Modi should address this issue as well in front of the world leaders.

    BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra responded to the Congress leader's question and held the previous governments headed by the Indian National Congress responsible for the economic gap.
