Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday fired a fresh salvo at the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh Government over the slash on free laptops for meritorious students and allocation for secondary and higher education in the newly-presented state budget.
"Great move CM Yogi - next you can save some more money by closing all the hospitals," Rahul tweeted.
Free laptops for meritorious students was one of the poll promises by the BJP, in its 'Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra'.
The Finance Minister Rajesh Agarwal-presented budget also cut the budgetary provisions for secondary education and higher education, with basic education, however, seeing a rise in fund allocation.
The war of words between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has gone to great lengths with Rahul, every now and then, tweeting against the Centre and its policies and the leaders of the saffron party criticising him and dubbing him as "immature."
In one of the instances, the Gandhi scion earlier drew flak from the politicos as he took to twitter to mock Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said that it is still counting the demonetised notes deposited in the banks.
"GOI looking for a Math tutor. Please apply to PMO ASAP (sic)," he had tweeted.
