Rahul Gandhi’s twitter handle ‘OfficeofRG’ has been the topic of various news outlets. The recent reports have claimed that the spurt in Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s online popularity could be due to Twitter bots, the paid accounts used to boost liking of Twitter posts. This is not a new charge against a politician. Time and again, politicians of all hues have been accused of jacking up following on Twitter and Facebook by buying followers.
In the backdrop of a fast unfolding political drama, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday welcomed OBC leader Alpesh Thakore to his party in Gandhinagar.
He termed GST Gabbar Singh Tax, Gandhi said the new tax regime has destroyed scores of small businessmen and unless it is simplified, the country will end up suffering.
And again Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter handle gave a new full form to GST that didn’t go with the Twitterati.
Congress GST= Genuine Simple Tax
Modi ji's GST= Gabbar Singh Tax =''ये कमाई मुझे दे दे"
