NEW DELHI: Videos of Rahul Gandhi “partying” at a hip Kathmandu venue dominated the country’s television and media on Tuesday. As the BJP trolled him for showing up at a ‘nightclub’ as his party ‘explodes’, the Congress hit back by saying he was at a wedding party of a Nepalese journalist who is also the daughter of a former diplomat.

“Rahul did not go as an uninvited guest as Prime Minister Modi had gone to Pakistan to celebrate the birthday of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Rahul traveled to a friendly country Nepal to participate at a private wedding of a friend. Luckily the friend is also a journalist,” he said, adding that it is not a crime to attend wedding ceremonies.

The clarification, however, could not quell the avalanche of sarcastic remarks from the BJP stable. Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju said: “Regular parties, holidays, vacations, leisure trips, private visits abroad, etc. are nothing new to the nation… As an ordinary citizen, there is no problem, but when a deputy, a permanent boss of a national political party who does not stop preaching to others … »

BJP social media cell chief Amit Malviya said: “Rahul Gandhi was in a nightclub when Mumbai (in 2008) was under control (sic). He’s at a nightclub when his party explodes. He is consistent.
