The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday mocked Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his report card on the Modi government’s performance by citing the Congress’ electoral defeats under his leadership and calling him a “failed dynast”.
“Dear Rahul Gandhi, we do not know how many times irony dies when a failed dynast like you give marks to a performing government. Here is a compilation of all the glories you have brought to your party,” the BJP said in a tweet.
A video was also attached with the tweet, highlighting electoral defeats of the Congress since Rahul Gandhi was elevated as party vice president in 2013 followed by his appointment as the party president last year.

The ruling party said the Congress has lost as many as 24 elections since then.
Earlier in the day, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Delhi-Meerut expressway and 135-km long eastern peripheral expressway, Congress President Rahul Gandhi criticised him for ignoring plight of sugarcane farmers in Uttar Pradesh.
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi in a tweet said that Uttar Pradesh’s sugercane farmers are thinking, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi piggybacks on all the development projects initiated by the UPA, why does he end-up ignoring them when he passes through their region during his road show.
It is unfortunate that Udayveer, a sugarcane farmer from Baghpat district’s Baraut town, who died during a hunger strike while demanding sugrance dues, cannot even think how can a PM cross by ignoring them.
On the Central government’s fourth anniversary, Rahul Gandhi released a report card purportedly in connection with the performance of the NDA government over the last four years.
Gandhi had mockingly shared a “report card” that ridiculed BJP’s performance, by giving it ‘F’ in agriculture, foreign policy, fuel prices and job creation and ‘A+’ in slogan creation and self promotion.
