Rahul Gandhi Butt Of New Jokes For His 70k Burberry Jacket!

Rahul Gandhi sports a 2 in 1 puffer jacket from Burberry worth 70k: Congress laughs off allegations, says it's available for Rs 700 too!

The Congress has laughed off the allegations of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that party chief Rahul Gandhi wore a jacket worth Rs 70,000.

Giving no importance to the issue, senior Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury said that similar jackets can be found for Rs 700 too. “I can show you the same jacket for Rs 700,’ she said. This was somewhat a cover fire for Rahul Gandhi or at least we hope so 🙂

Meanwhile, taking a ‘soot-boot ki sarkar’ jibe at the Congress chief, BJP’s Meghalaya unit had posted the photo of Rahul donning the jacket on Twitter at a music event in Shillong on Tuesday. “So @OfficeOfRG, soot (pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with ‘black’ money fleeced from Meghalaya State exchequer by rampant corruption? Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us!,” Meghalaya BJP had posted.


The jacket is a two-in-one down puffer jacket from Burberry, which is a British luxury fashion brand. Meanwhile, this is pure rumors and speculations. On the Bloomingdales website, the cost of the jacket was listed as Rs. 68,145.


BJP’s reference to the “suit boot” jibe was seemingly targeting at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Who surely was on the receiving end of a backlash from opposition parties for wearing a monogrammed suit during a meeting with the then U.S. President Barack Obama in 2015.

The base price of the suit at an auction was Rs. 11 lakh, however, it went for a whopping Rs. 4.31 crore. The Congress President was in Shillong to kick off the election campaign of the party in poll-bound Meghalaya.

The polling for the 60-member state assembly will take place on February 27 along with Nagaland. The results will be out on March 3.
