In the picture, May could be seen advising Modi to sell tea after he wrongly punctuates the word "meme'. Despite huge political differences with BJP and having suffered abuse from their leaders, we respect the PM and all the political opponents".
Reacting sharply to the tweet that was later deleted from the Twitter page, BJP said, "This blatantly classist and anti-poor tweet by Youth Congress shows their mindset towards India's poor".
"Now Yuva Desh deleting the tweet means nothing, damage is done, be it intentional or unintentional".
It has irked the BJP leadership, prompting Gujarat Chief Minister and prominent BJP leader in Gujarat, Vijay Rupani, to tweet to Rahul Gandhi and ask him if he approved of this.
However, the Congress distanced itself from the meme and said that the party has always believed in respecting the prime minister as well as political opponents. When the party is already in a crucial situation ahead of the Gujarat polls, it should not have forgotten that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi wears the "Chaiwala" tag with pride and not disgrace.
With political discourse often getting reduced to vituperative outburst, senior Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi targeted Modi and the BJP over it, and sought apology.
"Just because Modiji comes from a poor family and he used to sell tea you will insult him?" The BJP and Modi has himself on more than one ocassion has spoken about the humble origins of the Prime Minister.
Two months later, the BJP won the election by a landslide majority and the Congress' fortunes have been eroding steadily ever since. "But if he wants to distribute tea here, we will find a place for him", he had said.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said the party "strongly disapproves & rejects such humour".
Though the party has apologised for the Tweet - saying its members have a "great deal of respect for the country's PM" - this is not the first time that the Congress has taken a low blow at the head of the state and picked on his modest background. However, he refrained from commenting anything about the "Chaiwala" tweet on Modi. Country expects ur response on the tweet of the youth Congress, which is shameful & insulting to poor.
