On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi, MP and president of Indian National Congress, took to Twitter to wish citizens on the eve of India’s Republic Day celebrations,. He also wrote an open letter to the nation, which he posted on Twitter. “On the eve of our 69th Republic Day, I'm writing this “LetterToTheNation” to remind ourselves of the commitments we made in our Constitution,” he tweeted.

Gandhi’s letter, which received about 12,000 likes and 4,700 retweets, shed light of justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity. Many Twitter users—primarily from the BJP— who responded to Gandhi’s tweets started trolling him on Twitter, asking him about the ghost writer who penned the letter for him.

Republic Day Seating Row

Although Narendra Modi had invited Rahul Gandhi to the Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath on Friday, the Congress claims that the BJP has played “petty politics” by messing around with Gandhi’s seating arrangements. A Congress leader told reporters that Rahul Gandhi, being the leader of the Opposition and the son of former Prime Minister, has always had a front row seat during the Republic Day celebrations. They accused the BJP of humiliating their candidate and moving him to the fourth row.
