In a jibe at the former Congress President, Supriyo advised Gandhi to use the normal data packs in order to save money. Rahul Gandhi returned from abroad this weekend and was present for the resumption of the Parliament's Budget session.
Bhai.. when you tweet frm your holidays abroad, your network provider charges at least 4 times more for Data Usage.. But 10day/15 days International Roaming packs are available.. try availing that in your next trip.. For your short stays in India, you may use normal Data Packs 🙏 https://t.co/5Lt4cb80Kf— Babul Supriyo (@SuPriyoBabul) March 3, 2020
In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Supriyo mocked Gandhi for his regular international trips, which was a reply to the latter's tweet asking the Prime Minister to "give up hatred, and not social media accounts."

However, Karti Chidambaram appreciated the Prime Minister's move. Karti Chidambaram in his tweet said that the urge to give up social media is to be appreciated, as the toxicity of the medium is a bane.
