New Delhi: Union minister Vijay Goel on Sunday criticised Congress’ youth wing for a meme it had put out mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “chaiwala” past, and said its parent party — the Congress — should have condemned it. Speaking to media after taking part in Mann Ki Baat — Chai Ke Saath event in the national capital, Mr Goel said at a time when the Prime Minister was trying to take India forward, the Congress’ youth wing was stooping down with its tweets and memes.

On November 21, the official Twitter handle of the Youth Congress online magazine Yuva Desh had kicked up a row by mocking Mr Modi’s “chaiwala” past and English-speaking skills through a photograph showing him in a conversation with British Premier Theresa May and US President Donald Trump. The meme was removed soon after it was put out, following which Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala has said on Twitter that the Congress “strongly disapproves and rejects such humour through memes.”
