Earlier also, the BJP had targeted Rahul Gandhi for his "frequent" foreign visits.
Union Minister Babul Supriyo on Tuesday took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tweet, after the latter took a jibe at the PM and suggested that he should "give up hatred, not social media."
In retaliation to Rahul Gandhi's advice to PM Modi, Mr Supriyo advised the Congress leader to use the normal data packs in order to save money.
It all started after Prime Minister Modi took to Twitter, saying: "This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted."
The former Congress president responded by saying that the Prime Minister should "give up hatred, not social media".
Responding to Rahul Gandhi's comment, Mr Supriyo took on the Congress leader for his regular international trips and wrote, "Bhai.. when you tweet from your holidays abroad, your network provider charges at least 4 times more for Data Usage.. But 10 days/15 days International Roaming packs are available.. try availing that in your next trip.. For your short stays in India, you may use normal Data Packs."
Earlier also, the BJP had targeted Rahul Gandhi for his "frequent" foreign visits. They also questioned who footed the bills for Mr Gandhi's frequent visits abroad, including air tickets, staying in five-star hotels and other such expenses.
