New Delhi, Jan 15 (UNI) Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on winning the Kotler presidential award.
In a post on social media, Rahul, in a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ tweet, said,’’I want to congratulate our PM, on winning the world famous “Kotler Presidential Award”! In fact it’s so famous it has no jury, has never been given out before and is backed by an unheard of Aligarh company.
Event partners: patanjali and Republic TV.’’
BJP Leader Smriti Irani, however, hit back at Rahul for his jibe.
In a tweet, Smriti Irani, who was among the first to congratulate the Prime Minister on receiving the award, said,’’Rich !!! Coming from a person whose illustrious family decided to confer the ‘Bharat Ratna’ on themselves.”
