Speaking at a function in Allahabad on Monday, Rahul Gandhi stirred the hornet's nest by dismissing poverty as just a state of mind.
"Poverty is just a state of mind. It does not mean the scarcity of food, money or material things. If one possesses self-confidence, then one can overcome poverty," he said.
Meanwhile, Twitter is flooded with Rahul Gandhi jokes and satire, with #YoRahulSoDumb trending at first position.
