Updated:11 months ago IST

New Delhi, Nov 21 (ANI): 'Yuva Desh', the 'Indian Youth Congress' online magazine, on Tuesday tweeted a derogatory meme attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The online magazine tweeted a picture of the prime minister in conversation with the United States President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May. In the picture, PM Modi was mocked for his English speaking skills and the German Chancellor is asking the prime minister to return to his previous tea selling business. Though the tweet was later deleted, it called for all the attention that it deserved. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani took to his Twitter handle to ask if Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi would approve of such a jibe at the country's head. "This blatantly classist and anti-poor Tweet by the Youth Congress shows their mindset towards India's poor. Does Crown Prince @OfficeOfRG support this?" tweeted Rupani. Later, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah also slammed Congress for the tweet. "What is about elements of the Congress party that commit political suicide with such amazing regularity? This tweet is in such poor taste," he posted. Before assembly elections in 2014, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had also attacked Narendra Modi, saying he will never become the prime minister of India and if wants than can arrange some space for him to start tea business.
