Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a veiled dig at the Narendra Modi government while congratulating officers and Athar Amir-ul-Shafi on their wedding.

"Congratulations and Athar Amir-ul-Shafi, toppers, batch of 2015, on your wedding! May your love grow from strength to strength and may you be an inspiration to all Indians in this age of growing intolerance and communal hatred. God bless you," Gandhi said in a tweet.

He attached a news report with his tweet that carried a photograph of the newlyweds, who have been allocated the Rajasthan cadre of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).

The couple's marriage was solemnised in Pahalgam in south Kashmir on Saturday.

Gandhi has been accusing the BJP and its ideological patron RSS of promoting intolerance in India. He targeted the BJP during Congress's protest fast on Monday saying that "BJP's ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities".

Gandhi had also said that the party will always fight against BJP's ideology and defeat it in the 2019 general elections.
