Congress President Rahul Gandhi, it seems, has taken a leaf out of controversial Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani’s book. In a picture that has been doing the rounds of social media, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty can be seen posing with a person who dresses up as Prime Minister Modi.
Earlier this year in June, Mevani had tweeted a picture of himself where he could be seen admonishing a person dressed up as Narendra Modi and ordering him to ‘end his drama’ and answer people on the promises he had made regarding employment opportunities.
Though people on social media often take Rahul Gandhi’s activities as a source of entertainment, imitating Mevani was perhaps considered a little too juvenile, even for Rahul Gandhi.
Dear @RahulGandhi …. pls grow up nd stop being excited about fancy dress competitions…. V know you adore Modi …. but yeh yoh kuch zyada ho gaya when u dress up your Congress stooges as Modi. Aapko Apni Takat dikhane Ke liye Bhi Modi Hi Chhaiye .Kitne khush nazar aa rahe Ho. pic.twitter.com/ZaKxhV4K1s

Circa 2013: Rahul Gandhi, one particular morning when he woke up in the night, tore up the ordinance of GOI. || Circa 2018: Rahul Gandhi is reduced to campaigning with a Modi look alike. || This is just in 5 years. One more term & dynasty would be consigned to dustbin of history. pic.twitter.com/WJSiqzdHyk

It is not very surprising that Rahul Gandhi thought it wise to use a Modi look-alike for his political agenda considering the head of the Congress IT cell had recently shared a tweet where she had called the nation’s PM as ‘bird dropping.’
Only yesterday, a senior Congress leader declared that it was time to burn Narendra Modi alive. Even though BJP supporters proudly admit that Rahul Gandhi is their ‘Star Pracharak’ and he ensures people choose BJP, taking a poor imitation of the PM to keep him company during rallies is perhaps not a very good idea.
