Jaitley tears into 'myths' of Cong's poll plank in latest social media post
NEW DELHI, Dec 9 (Agencies): Even as Gujarat voted in the first phase of the 2107 Assembly elections, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley tore into the Conrgess's campaign in the state.

Another faux pas? Rahul deletes tweet with wrong maths against Modi, posts new one
NEW DELHI, Dec 5 (Agencies): About three hours after Congress Vice-President posted his seventh question to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the tweet was deleted. A fresh post came up on twitter with the same words, but a new image. Turns out, the maths was all wrong in the previous tweet. In the previous tweet (above image), the percentage column – a matter of simple maths – contained wrong and inflated figures. The fresh tweet now says: BJP leaders were quick to point it out. "His questions are clumsily phrased. I don't know who drafts his questions? On what basis does he ask those questions? They either don't understand data or represent it wrongly, as per their convenience. All the data is baseless," said Jitendra Singh, Minister of State at Prime Minister's Office. The Congress l...
