Does Congress's 'chaiwala' tweet mock the common man?

And this deja-vu moment can cost the party dearly in a state where it had its best chance to win in decades. One will have to wait for the Gujarat election results to confirm the status as complete.

Irani said citizens of India have "reassured the Congress party that their dynastic politics is no acceptable to them, their mockery of prime minister's position is not acceptable to them".

The comment massively backfired, Congress was dethroned and BJP made history by not only winning majority in the general elections, but doing it by a fair margin. The picture portrayed PM Modi conversing with the US President Donald Trump and British PM Theresa May.

On Tuesday, the Indian Youth Congress posted a crude meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the official Twitter handle of the Youth Congress online magazine Yuva Desh.

Where PM Modi says: "Aap logon ne dekha vipaksh mere kaise kaise maimai banvata hai?". However, he is shown as mispronouncing the word "meme" as "me-me", instead of "meem" which is the correct pronunciation. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, also not missing out on the opportunity to pull down Congress, tweeted that the posts of Congress show that the party is classist and "anti-poor". "Does Crown Prince @OfficeOfRG support this?"

Randeep Singh Surjewala, the chief spokesperson of the Congress Party tweeted INC strongly disapproves & rejects such humour through memes. He said Congress culture imbibes respect for PM and all political opponents.

The inevitable LaVar Ball vs. Donald Trump war of words is here
President Trump told reporters that he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the incident and took credit for their release.

The Youth Congress deleted the tweet, apologised, and blamed the tweet on "volunteers".

But that hasn't pacified the BJP leaders.

The Congress today called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "serial abuser" and the BJP "mother of crass statements", drawing a strong rebuttal from the ruling party which insisted Modi was a "victim" of abuses. "If Congress has not learnt this lesson, it will never learn it", Jaitley said.

"Madam Sonia Gandhi and Mr Rahul Gandhi do u still believe that only u have a divine right to rule India?"

Reminiscing Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's 2014 remarks, BJP leader Tajinder Bagga said, "Just because Modi ji comes from a poor family and he used to sell tea you will insult him? U can delete the Tweet but ur thinking towards the poor stands exposed".
