Hours after Rahul Gandhi announced that he would be travelling abroad to meet his grandmother and family, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya took a dig at the Congress vice-president saying as a child, he would often go to his grandmother’s house during the summer vacation.

Hum bhi bachche they jab garmi ki chhuttiyon mein nanihaal jaate the (We were children when we used to visit the grandmother’s house during the summer holidays),” the BJP leader was quoted saying by news agency ANI.

Vijayvargiya added that the country and its farmers should not look towards Gandhi as the latter does politics to celebrate picnics.

Rahul ji se aap desh ki ya kisaan ki chinta ki apeksha na karein wo raajneeti karte hain picnic manaane ke liye (Do not expect Rahul ji to care about the country or its farmers. He does politics to celebrate picnics),” he said.

Gandhi, who is poised to take over as the national president of the Congress party later this year, said in a tweet, “Will be travelling to meet my grandmother & family for a few days. Looking forward to spending some time with them!” The Congress vice-president is known to often take trips out of the country for personal reasons, details of which are rarely known. In early 2015, he had taken a 57-day sabbatical which left the Congress defending his leave of absence.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala defended Gandhi’s trip saying it signifies Indian culture. “Rahul ji is going to meet his 93-year-old grandmother. It’s Indian culture to take care of ageing parents  and grandparents,” he told ANI.

        My humble request to BJP leadership to remove this moron Kailash from appearing on behalf of party as it will damage of the party.His owl like face is highly repulsive with pan tanned teeth and rugged look .Good face is also required for spokesperson and this moron does not fit into the category.

              Kailash Vijayvagariya also wants to go to his paternal uncle's house. But since he doesn't know which street bull is his daddy, he doesn't also know who his uncle is. So has asked his guruji Moron Bhagwat what to do. Moron said , main khud apne baap ki talaash me hoon , jao poochhon Feku se.

                    Less money than Adanis and Ambanis and Surat diamond smugglers have given Fraudster Modi for his US trip.
