Gujarat Assembly polls : BJP leaders sell tea outside Congress office, Watch
A day when the Congress' youth wing set off a political firestorm with a meme about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'chaiwala' past, provoking a backlash from the ruling BJP, and prompting a red-faced Congress to distance from it, BJP delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga along with Gujarat's youngest MLA Harish Sanghavi sold tea outside the Congress office in Surat. The potentially damaging meme circulated ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls was deleted soon after it was put out, and the Congress distanced itself from it, saying the party disapproves of and rejects such humour. Seeking to do control the damage, Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala said, "Congress strongly disapproves and rejects such humour through memes. Differences on policy and opinion aside, Congress culture imbibes respect for PM and all political opponents."
