Several party leaders have highlighted this, and used it as an example of internal democracy within the BJP, saying any person anywhere in the country can ascend to the top, unlike the Congress, which has been ruled by the same family.

Days after Rahul Gandhi asked the Congress in Gujarat to respect the dignity of the office of the Prime Minister, a Twitter handle linked to the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) posted a crude meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday. Mr PM has been depicted mispronouncing "meme" and being corrected by Trump, with May finally saying " tu chai bech (you sell tea)".

Sambit Patra, another prominent face of BJP said, "The nation saw the impact of "Maut Ka Saudagar" jibe and Mani Shankar Aiyar's abuses in 2014".

The BJP said that the offensive post (now deleted) exemplifies the Congress' elitist mindset and that an enraged public will punish it by ensuring the BJP sweeps next month's election in Gujarat.

Whether or not the latest tweet by Yuva Desh hurts the party in Gujarat elections remains to be seen, but's an unsavoury controversy the party could have dearly done without.

He cited a host of "abusive" comments made by Congress leaders, including its president Sonia Gandhi and her deputy Rahul Gandhi, in the past to target Modi.

Congress, if not forgotten should be reminded again that the party had made the same mistake ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, and BJP had won with a clear majority, and since then the fortunes of Congress have been eroding.

In view of a massive outrage over its controversial meme, Yuva Desh later deleted the "chaiwala" meme after Amarinder Singh Raja, the National President of the Indian Youth Congress, said that his organisation did not approve of such humour. His tweet also said, "Differences on policy and opinion aside, Congress culture imbibes respect for PM and all political opponents".

But that hasn't pacified the BJP leaders. "If Congress has not learnt this lesson, it will never learn it", Jaitley said. "Country expects your response on the tweet of the Youth Congress".
