BJP's response to Rahul Gandhi's Pidi video: Party tweets image calling the dog 'smarter than his master'

On Sunday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi gave a cheeky response to rumours about his Twitter account being handled by sources other than him. Gandhi introduced his dog, Pidi, as the one responsible for handling his Twitter account.

In a quick riposte, the BJP's national IT in-charge, Amit Malviya, tweeted an image that said "the dog who is smarter than his master:"

BJP leader from Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted that Pidi's presence was felt when "urgent issues" were to be discussed

Financial Express reported that the BJP minister had told a TV channel that a minor argument occurred in a meeting of Assam Congress leaders. Rahul Gandhi was oblivious and more interested in feeding biscuits to Pidi, Sarma, then a Congress leader, claimed, as per Financial Express.

An ANI report claimed that the rise in Gandhi's followers can be credited to a data analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica.

Congres' social media chief, Divya Spandana, was quoted by ANI: "On Twitter, one tweets and what happens after that is not in our control. You will have to speak to Twitter to get clarity."
