Twitterati came out all guns blazing after Rahul Gandhi returned from his controversial two-month long sabbatical on Thursday.

While some users stuck to political debates, there was no dearth of jokes, as usual. "All I'm saying is he's been relaunched so many times, this better be a 13 Inch Gold, Rahul Gandhi Air with Retina Display," tweeted stand-up comedian Vir Das.

Apart from jokes, Twitter was flooded with memes and cartoons on the Congress vice president's return. Take a look at some of the funniest tweets:

Rahul took the leave of absence from party affairs on the eve of the parliament's budget session on February 22.

Speculations were rife that Rahul was upset with a section of the party and him not being given a free hand. Congress, however, scotched these speculations and maintained that "he has every right to go on leave" and that his right to privacy should also be respected.

Rahul's engagements for the next few days include a day-long meeting with farmers from different states and a mega rally at the capital's Ramlila ground on April 19.
