After this people are blaming him saying that he had mocked the Indian army and the Elite dog unit.
Rahul’s controversial Tweet
On 21st June the whole world was celebrating the Yoga Day including the Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself and other familiar faces as well. People from all around the world including celebrities, ministers and army personnel were sharing pictures of the Yoga Day event held at different places. However, one such photo of Indian army dog unit went viral like a forest fire, the image showed how even the elite dogs were performing yoga with the army personnel.
The image was originally posted by Colonel Aman Anand, Principal Spokesperson of the Ministry of Defence. “Army dog unit practicing yoga”, Anand wrote.

BJP Fires on Congress President
The uncertain tweet of the Congress President gained blazing reactions from the Bharathiya Janatha Party(BJP) ministers. The newly elected MP from Karnataka Tejasvi Surya and BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra and Nalin Kohli hit out at Rahul Gandhi.
Tejasvi Surya wrote, “Ok. He still hasn’t learnt his lessons. In one go, he has insulted our Army, brave Jawans, the incredible dog unit, Yoga tradition & our country,” Surya said in a tweet. “I feel really sad for all the young Congress workers (if there are any left) that they have to deal with this man as their leader.”

Mostly, the joke is on you.

Beautiful pictures BUT distasteful tweet. Wonderful animals, brave Indian soldiers. BUT petty comment.

r u in doubts ? It is just a start, aage aage dekho hota hai kya. I'm fully convinced that this guy is star campaigner of BJP after NaMo, AmSha, Maharaj Ji and others.
Ek baat toh sach hai – 2014 b hamara tha, 2019 b hamara hai aur 2024 & 2029 b hamara hi hoga.

True, it's a New India where our Dogs too understand the importance of Yoga Day except few politicians ?

Today two shameful, irresponsible things done by Rahul Gandhi.
And he is candidate for Prime Minister who doesn't know etiquette, how to behave in front of president. #RahulInsultsForces #RahulGandhi #Congress pic.twitter.com/anXyT1usxV
