‘Amit Shah wears muffler worth Rs 80,000’: Congress leader Ashok Gehlot on Rahul Gandhi t-shirt row

The t-shirt worn by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi at one of the rallies earlier this month, which became the talk of the town as the Bharat Jodo Yatra got underway, sparked a political controversy between the INC and the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP).

The Congress party has decided to respond to the BJP’s repeated jabs at Rahul Gandhi on the purported cost of his t-shirt during the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Similar accusations were levelled against Union Home Minister Amit Shah by the Congress party.

As retaliation for the BJP’s T-shirt insult directed at Congressman Rahul Gandhi, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot asserted on Monday that Home Minister Amit Shah’s muffler costs Rs 80,000 while leaders of the saffron party don sunglasses that cost Rs 2.5 lakh.

According to PTI sources, the Rajasthan CM further claimed that the BJP released the t-shirt mocking Rahul Gandhi because it is concerned about the “amazing response” the public is giving to the “Bharat Jodo Yatra.”

Why are they having issues with the Bharat Jodo Yatra? As they wear sunglasses worth Rs 2.5 lakh and a muffler costing Rs 80,000, they are discussing Rahul Gandhi’s T-shirt while donning Rs 2.5 lakh in sunglasses. According to Gehlot, the home minister’s muffler costs Rs 80,000, he told media in Churu.

He said, “They (the BJP) are doing politics on T-shirts.” According to Gehlot, the BJP leaders were alarmed by the unprecedented popular response to the yatra. He claimed that the prime minister, the home minister, and other officials were abandoning their tasks to criticise Rahul Gandhi.

Just a few days after the Bharat Jodo Yatra was announced, the BJP posted a picture of Rahul Gandhi participating in the march, in which he is apparently sporting a Burberry t-shirt that costs over Rs 41,000 as a dig at the Congress party.

Additionally, the Bharat Jodo Yatra started on September 7 and will end in Kashmir. The padayatra will start in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu. Through this march, the rally hopes to “unite and connect” the nation. It is anticipated to last a total of five months.
