Rahul Gandhi tore Hooda’s shirt to ‘stage’ Delhi Police quirkiness: BJP


Amit Malviya, head of BJP IT cell, posted on Twitter a photo of Rahul Gandhi where he is seen pulling on his colleague Deepender Hooda’s shirt. Amit Malviya said it was a “stunt” to get a good protest image and blame the Delhi police for “handedness”.

The caption of Malviya’s tweet read: “After Priyanka Vadra’s hand wave, here’s another one. Rahul Gandhi rips his colleague Deepender Hooda’s shirt so that it provides a good protest image and the Delhi police can be accused of single-handedness. The Gandhi brothers and sisters are a strong supporter of tamasha politics.”
