Rahul Gandhi tweets Army dog squad pic with 'New India' caption, gets trolled


New Delhi, June 21: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday courted controversy by tweeting pictures of the dog squad of Indian Army doing yoga and captioning it "New India", an apparent dig at the Narendra Modi dispensation.

The pictures in the tweet showed the Army dog unit and their trainers prostrating.

The BJP took a swipe at Gandhi saying for him life is only about a joke, as he keeps posting pictures about his pet dog.

It also said while a new India is emerging under Prime Minister Modi, a new Congress is coming up under Gandhi.

"Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi there is a new india, and Gandhi's tweet reveals a new Congress under him.

Rahul Gandhi's tweet drew a sharp reaction from Bharatiya Janata Party MP Tejasvi Surya also.

"With due respect to you, @RahulGandhi Ji, these are proud members of the Indian Army and they contribute to the safety of our nation," Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Twitter.

Home Minister Amit Shah slammed Rahul Gandhi and Congress over Rahul Gandhi's tweet mocking Yoga Day and armed forces on Friday.

Amit Shah said, "Congress tweets about negativity."

"New India indeed. But, same/shame Rahul. Disrespects India, India's tradition, Indian Army," Sambit Patra said in a tweet.

Gandhi was also trolled on Twitter, with a number of people posting pictures about the Congress while poking fun at him and the party.
