By Vikas

The BJP and the Congress have locked horns over the cost of Rahul Gandhi's Burberry jacket that he wore at a music concert in Shillong on Tuesday. The Congress president was in Shillong to kick off the election campaign of the party in poll-bound Meghalaya.

Soon after the concert, BJP's Meghalaya unit Tweeted a picture of Rahul Gandhi donning the jacket with its original price and photo. The jacket is two-in-one down puffer jacket from Burberry, which is a British luxury fashion brand. On the Bloomingdales website, the cost of the jacket was listed as Rs 68,145 (or $995).

Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary hit back at the BJP and said that she can get the jacket for Rs 700.

"I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the desperation of the BJP. They have no other work. I can show yout he same jacket for Rs 700. If the the Prime Minister wants it then i can send one. only I don't have his measurements other than chappan inch seena. This is coming from suit boot sarkar," she told news agency ANI.

Rahul and other Congress leaders have time and again called the NDA government as a "suit boot ki sarkar" after PM Modi wore a monogrammed suit during a meeting with then US President Barack Obama in 2015. The base price of the suit at an auction was Rs 11 lakh, and it was sold for Rs 4.31 crore.

The polling for the 60-member state assembly will take place on February 27 along with Nagaland. The results will be declared on March 3.
