Rahul Gandhi tweets again -- this time with rhyme in Hindi

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

With a rhyme in colloquial Hindi and a dig at Minister Arun Jaitley, vice president today mocked his claims on the economy, holding that it was in the ICU and "Dr Jaitley's" medicines were ineffective.

Continuing with his attacks on the on Twitter, Gandhi said, "Dr Jaitley, the is in the ICU because of noteban and GST".

He also tweeted a doggerel, "kehtey hai kissi sey kum nahi/ magar aapki dava mein dum nahi (You claim you are no less than the others, but your medicines have no strength)."

The Tweet came a day after Jaitley retorted to Gandhi's barb on the new regime, which the leader had likened to a villain.

"Those who are used to the 2G scam and the coal scam will naturally have objections to a legitimate programme," Jaitley said.

Gandhi, while campaigning in Gujarat, had dubbed the "Gabbar Singh Tax", recalling the villain from the 1975 blockbuster 'Sholay'.

He had also attacked the on by referencing the character's dialogue to say it was a that coveted people's earnings.
