Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Nepal for a friend’s wedding triggered a barrage of tweets from the BJP and its supporters on Tuesday, many of them taking shots at the politician for attending a party while being critical of the government on social media.
The Congress, however, hit back, saying it was not yet a crime to visit a friendly nation to attend a friend’s wedding, and it was much less egregious than Prime Minister Narendra Modi making a surprise visit to former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter’s wedding in 2015.
“Rahul Gandhi hasn’t gone to Pakistan as an uninvited guest like PM Modi to cut a cake with Nawaz Sharif, and we know what happens in Pathankot,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said at a news briefing.
