"For all my BJP friends: unlike Narendrabhai, I am human. We do make the odd mistake and that's what makes life interesting. Thanks for pointing it out and please do keep it coming, it really helps me improve. Love you all," tweeted the Congress leader from his handle @OfficeOfRG.
The tweet on Tuesday was Rahul Gandhi's seventh question to PM Modi ahead of the Gujarat election, a social media campaign aimed at dissecting 22 years of BJP rule in the state.
The post put up with the hashtag @ Gujarat Maange Jawab highlighted the rise in prices of commodities like cooking gas, vegetables and fuel in the three years of the Modi government since 2014.
The tweet questioned whether the BJP government worked only for the rich. The table posted alongside erroneously inflated every price difference by 100 per cent.
A corrected tweet was put out later. But not before the blooper was ripped apart by BJP members and supporters.

Rahul Gandhi has four million followers on Twitter and has recently ramped up his social media engagement, targeting the BJP and PM Modi almost daily with jibes.
