The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday trolled Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his New Year tweet. On January 1, the former Congress president took to Twitter to “remember those who we lost and thank all those who protect and sacrifice for us.”

“My heart is with the farmers and labourers fighting unjust forces with dignity and honour,” he said in his tweet.

“Are you back from Milan?” tweeted AAP, in a snarky response.

The Gandhi scion has often come under fire for his foreign trips, at critical moments, when his party isn’t faring well in elections. 

Earlier this week, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) took a dig at him over his trip to Italy as Congress celebrated its 136th Foundation Day on December 28.

In response, Congress hit back saying “the BJP should have objections” as Gandhi was visiting his ailing relative. 

“Rahul Gandhi has gone out on a short personal visit to meet up with an ailing relative, who is seriously sick,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told PTI.

“He also meets up with his maternal grandmother this time of the year, every year,” he said.

“I don’t think the BJP should have objections to him visiting an ailing relative,” Surjewala added.
