Agartala (Tripura) [India] November 1 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Assam Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma taking a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said it is unbelievable that at the age of 50 people can attain maturity.

"Can you believe at the age of 50 people can suddenly mature. We have to talk to a medical doctor that whether it is possible," Sarma told ANI.

This is not the first time when Sarma mocked Congress vice-president.

Earlier on October 29, Assam minister took a jibe at Congress vice president over the latter's tongue in cheek response to allegations against his Twitter handle being managed by someone else.

In what could begin as a Twitter spar, Sarma responded in the affirmative to Rahul Gandhi's 'dog' tweeting on his behalf, and said that Gandhi was busy feeding the dog when the Assam government wanted to discuss urgent issues of the state.

Earlier in the day, Rahul posted a video on Twitter of his dog being fed biscuits and wrote, "Ppl been asking who tweets for this guy..I'm coming clean..it's me..Pidi..I'm way ?? than him. Look what I can do with a tweet..oops..treat!"

In response, the Assam Minister tweeted, "Sir @OfficeOfRG,who knows him better than me. Still remember you busy feeding biscuits 2 him while We wanted to discuss urgent Assam's issues."

Talks about Gandhi's Twitter handle being managed by someone else began to circulate, when the oft mocked for his public remarks, Gandhi scion began to improve on his posts on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.

The tweets were mostly targeted at the leading dispensation of BJP.

It can be noted that Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma left Congress Party to join BJP in 2015 over ideological differences. (ANI)
