Unlike Narendrabhai, 'I'm Human,' Quips Rahul Gandhi On Tweet Flub

Rahul Gandhi admits to a blooper in his "one-question-a-day series" tweet to PM Modi

New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi, the Congress's president-to-be, today admitted to a blooper while taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, all in one tweet. The 47-year-old was referring to a tweet in his "one-question-a-day series" that was derided and then deleted over an error in figures.

"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.
