Who is tweeting for Rahul Gandhi? Pidi, the pooch, says it's me

Who is tweeting for Rahul Gandhi? Pidi, the pooch, says it's me”

In the often hostile world of social media, where a nasty tweet is just a controversial post away, cute dog videos are undoubtedly saviours. Now, those who have been following him for a while would know that this has been a rather sudden change - and a welcome one at that - for the Congress party vice-president.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday took on his detractors who have been wondering as to whether his tweets are his own, through a video of his pet dog.

Gandhi's political rivals in past have questioned his ability to connect with the electorate and have reportedly said that his newfound wit and sarcasm on social media is "outsourced". The story goes that Biswa Sarma had gone to present his ideas to Congress VP for Assam elections but Rahul Gandhi was too busy playing with his dog.

Rahul Gandhi's four million followers on Twitter are no match to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 36 million.

"Ppl been asking who tweets for this guy.I'm coming clean.it's me.Pidi.I'm way than him. Look what I can do with a tweet.oops.treat!", Rahul captioned the tweet hitting back at all the naysayers who claimed that his tweets were inorganic.

In the video, the pooch named "Pidi" is seen standing up on his hind legs to do a "Namaste" on the Congress leader's bidding.

Not all, however, were super pleased with Rahul's post.

Rahul Gandhi's recent tweet taking a dig at Arun Jaitley has also seen a significant number of retweets, the tweet where Rahul attacks Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the bad implementation of GST and Demonetisation which has adversely affected the Indian economy has been retweeted over 11,000 times.
