It said instead of attending a musical event, Gandhi should have given a report card of the state government.Also readIn Meghalaya, Rahul Gandhi attacks BJP; questions how many leadership positions are with women in RSSThe tweet suggesting that the jacket worn by Gandhi was bought with black money, drew a sharp reaction from Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury, who alleged the BJP was leading a “suit-boot ki sarkar” at the Centre, and had no moral authority to question Gandhi.However, Omar Abdullah defended Rahul Gandhi without mentioning his name in a tweet and said, “Kanni shawls or Burberry jackets. If our leaders want to dress well then good for them. Why shouldn’t they spend their salaries on things they like?.”Gandhi is in Meghalaya to campaign for the party for the upcoming Assembly polls.He had attended the concert in Shillong, apparently to reach out to the young voters.Dressed in blue denim trousers and a black jacket, he urged the youth to love and respect each other to make the country strong.
