Even though the Congress youth wing removed the "chaiwala" meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi that it posted on Tuesday, the party continued to face brickbats from the BJP, with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying the Grand Old Party would never learn their lesson.

The Congress earlier said it will launch a new campaign to demand apology from the Prime Minister and the BJP for their continuous use of allegedly "deplorable" language against political rivals. With only a few weeks left for the Gujarat Assembly elections, getting making such controversial comments on Prime Minister Narendra Modi could cost the party heavily.

"Just because Modiji comes from a poor family and he used to sell tea you will insult him? But if he wants to distribute tea here, we will find a place for him", he had said.

The comment massively backfired, Congress was dethroned and BJP made history by not only winning majority in the general elections, but doing it by a fair margin. The Spokesperson of Communication department head, Randeep Surjewala said: "INC (Indian National Congress) strongly disapproves and rejects such humour through memes".

The BJP said that the offensive post (now deleted) exemplifies the Congress' elitist mindset and that an enraged public will punish it by ensuring the BJP sweeps next month's election in Gujarat. "Differences in policy and opinion aside, Congress culture imbibes respect for PM and all political opponents".

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley took a swipe at the Congress over the "chaiwala" meme aimed at Modi.

It has irked the BJP leadership, prompting Gujarat Chief Minister and prominent BJP leader in Gujarat, Vijay Rupani, to tweet to Rahul Gandhi and ask him if he approved of this.

The apologies from Congress, was unable to supress the anger of numerous BJP leaders.

The Youth Congress tweet expectedly didn't go down well with BJP leaders.

BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao said, "This is a crude attempt to ridicule over 90% of India's population that is unfamiliar with the English language..."
