Haryana health minister Anil Vij on Wednesday took pot shots at Rahul Gandhi's journey by train to meet farmers in Punjab, saying from the pictures in newspapers it appears like "a child had run away from his home".
"After looking at the pictures of Rahul Gandhi sitting in a train like a terrified and scared child, which appeared in today's newspapers, it appears like a child had run away from his home," he said in a tweet.
Notably, Rahul Gandhi yesterday took his fight against the contentious land acquisition bill to Punjab as he travelled by general class of a train to the grain bowl of the NDA-ruled state and met farmers to see their condition and returned to Delhi by air.
Rahul had travelled in a general compartment of the Nanded-Amritsar Sachkhand express from Delhi to reach Ambala in Haryana, bordering Punjab, last evening, from where he drove to visit Sirhind grain market in Fategarh Sahib district.
Vij is BJP MLA from Ambala Cantt.
