The Congress and the BJP have been sparring since the air strikes by the IAF at Pakistan's Balakot
NEW DELHI: Political discourse hit a new low today as the BJP's Shrikant Sharma, a minister in Yogi Adityanath's government, of the BJP, in a tweet, used the slur "impotent" for the Congress. He got called out by Lalu Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal, which, however, took the discussion down by another notch, citing the Prime Minister.
In a Hindi tweet two days ago, Mr Sharma, who is in charge of the energy portfolio in Uttar Pradesh, said: "The comments issued at the behest of coward eunuch Congress chief Rahul Gandhi are shameful. The entire world is standing with BJP government's strict action against terrorists but Congress and party is weakening India's fight against terrorism with their disgusting remarks."
The RJD, which has an alliance with the Congress in Bihar, responded today.
"How do they know that Rahul Gandhi is impotent and Narendra Modi is not? The nation wants to know. When their chief's language is so objectionable, his track record so controversial and covered in blood, it is foolish to expect parliamentary language and behaviour from his disciples," read their tweet in Hindi.Best selling mobiles from Rs.1,000 to Rs.5,000
