Poll: Does Congress's 'chaiwala' tweet mock the common man?

The Youth Congress has been roundly slammed on social media after its official online magazine issued a tweet insulting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s humble beginnings as a tea seller.

Though the party has apologised for the Tweet – saying its members have a ‘great deal of respect for the country’s PM’ – this is not the first time that the Congress has taken a low blow at the head of the state and picked on his modest background.

Do you think the Congress party harbours an elitist mindset? By making a ‘chaiwalla’ the object of ridicule, is the Congress, by extension, mocking all the common, hardworking men and women of the India who are engaged in blue collar professions?
