The Indian National Congress (INC) faced an awkward moment early this morning when a video surfaced and went viral, showing the party’s former president and son of the current interim president in a night club, which is reportedly in Kathmandu, Nepal. More and more social media users are sharing the video on Twitter even as the BJP slammed the leadership of its old foe.

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju questioned Rahul Gandhi, an MP, for “preaching others” while reportedly partying himself.
“Regular Parties, Vacations, Holidays, Pleasure Trips, Private Foreign Visits etc are nothing new to the nation now. As a private citizen there’s no issue at all but when an MP, a permanent boss of a national political party who keeps preaching others…..,” Rijiju said on Twitter.

Former Delhi BJP president Tiwari wrote in that a crisis loomed over the INC but not the “family”.

“Rahul Gandhi was at a nightclub when Mumbai was under seize (sic). He is at a nightclub at a time when his party is exploding. He is consistent,” wrote Amit Malviya, who heads BJP’s IT (social media) cell.

“Interestingly, soon after the Congress refused to outsource their presidency, hit jobs have begun on their Prime Ministerial candidate,” Malviya wrote.

BJP’s Muslim face Shahnawaz Hussain said that he had not seen the video but alleged that Rahul “parties every day and no one stops him anyway”.

“He parties more & works less for his party,” Hussain remarked.

The party at the receiving end of the barbs, the INC did not say the video was fake. Spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala defended Rahul Gandhi, saying he was in to attend a function and asked whether it was a crime to have friends.

Surjewala said Rahul had visited to attend a marriage ceremony and it is “not a crime in India” to attend a marriage celebration. Rahul Gandhi had reportedly attended the wedding of a friend a day ago.

“Rahul Gandhi went to a friendly to participate in a private marriage function of a friend who also happens to be a journalist … last I checked, having family & friends & attending marriage ceremonies is a matter of our culture and civilization,” Surjewala said.

Questioning the BJP, Surjewala said that maybe the party will now decide that it is “illegal to attend a marriage and a crime to have friends”.

“But do let me know so that we can change our status and civilizational practices of attending marriages of our friends and family members,” the INC spokesman quipped.

That did not stop more and more people sharing the video and mocking Rahul Gandhi, but journalists wondered how the video leaked, suggesting it was an insider’s job, as nobody from the BJP could have been at the party to shoot the video.

Editor of Earshot Abhijit Majumder tweeted a poll to ask whether it was all right to pry into the private lives of high-profile people. Sirf News editor Surajit Dasgupta quoted him to say it depended on what the act of peeping revealed.
