Rahul Gandhi’s “sarcastic” tweet mocks Indian Army, dogs, Yoga and “New India”

The Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted a photograph of the Indian Army dogs performing Yoga along with their handlers on the occasion of International Yoga Day. Social media erupted in a storm after Mr. Gandhi  managed to mock the “army, a dog unit and the yoga tradition” in a single tweet.

Member of Parliament from Kerala’s Wayanad, Rahul Gandhi tweeted the picture with caption “New India”. The Congress President was sarcastic about the Narendra Modi government’s popular slogan once, “New India”.

Anti-Rahul Gandhi and the Congress Party connected the tweet to the debacle in the Lok Sabha elections. BJP MP from Bengaluru South Tejasvi Surya tweeted, “Ok. He still hasn’t learnt his lessons. In one go, he has insulted our Army, brave Jawans, the incredible dog unit, Yoga tradition & our country. I feel really sad for all the young Congress workers (if there are any left) that they have to deal with this man as their leader.”
