Speaking about his sartorial choice, Rahul Gandhi said that the jacket which was causing so much furore was ‘borrowed’. He was quoted saying by India Today that the alleged Burberry jacket was ‘borrowed’.
Hitting back at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for taking potshots at Rahul Gandhi over his jacket, the Congress party on Wednesday called it the BJP’s desperation to bring down the Congress party president’s popularity and image.
Gandhi, who has been campaigning in Meghalaya for the forthcoming assembly elections, was seen wearing a jacket, apparently from a British luxury fashion brand, which the BJP claims is priced at nearly Rs. 70,000
On Tuesday, BJP’s Meghalaya unit raised the issue of Gandhi’s jacket on Twitter.
“So @OfficeOfRG , soot(pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with ‘black’ money fleeced from Meghalayan State exchequer by rampant corruption’ Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us!” wrote Meghalaya BJP below the picture, which was paired with the jacket’s original photo and price. (ANI)
