Who tweets for Rahul Gandhi? Pidi has an answer for you

Congress vice president Rahul Congress vice president Rahul
Bennie Garza | 29 October, 2017, 14:49

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday bashed his critics who questioned his witticism and sudden surge in popularity on social media, with a single hilarious tweet.

Mr Gandhi's tweet retweeted by a number of Congress leaders, including Divya Spandana, who heads the Social Media and Digital Communications wing of the Congress: But it also invited this barb from former Congress leader Himanta Biswa Sarma: In 2015, Mr Sarma switched over to the BJP after a public falling out with Mr Gandhi and delivered a string of historic wins in the north east to the BJP a year ago. The story goes that Biswa Sarma had gone to present his ideas to Congress VP for Assam elections but Rahul Gandhi was too busy playing with his dog.

"People (have) been asking who tweets for this guy. Look what I can do with a tweet.oops.treat!", Rahul captioned the tweet hitting back at all the naysayers who claimed that his tweets were inorganic. Gandhi said in his Twitter post.

Gandhi is then seen placing a treat on the dog's nose, which is soon devoured by the excited canine.

In another tweet, he took potshots at the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and tried to show the differences in the versions put out by Congress and BJP. We can only speculate, but if Twitter engagement is what Rahul was going for, the post did not perform badly - within five hours of Rahul's tweet, the dog video had been retweeted more than more than 5,000 times and was liked 12,000 times.

While we aren't sure if the video would serve the goal, but one thing Gandhi's latest tweet indicates is - the man sure happens to know how to take a joke or two.
