Is that Pandit Nehru's work? Maneka Gandhi posts #SareeTwitter picture, deletes it later
A week ago, Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra's #SareeTwitter post gained immense popularity.
Commemorating #SareeTwitter, the BJP MP from Sultanpur first shared a picture from her son Varun Gandhi's wedding to Yamini Roy where she is seen wearing a pink saree. The 62-year-old politician, however, deleted the tweet hours after having posted it. In the now-deleted tweet, Gandhi revealed that the saree was woven by former Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru when he was in jail during India's freedom struggle.
“The cotton saree that I’m wearing was woven by Pt. Nehru in jail and is now over 70 years old. I wore it on my son’s wedding in Benares. My daughter-in-law Yamini is wearing an antique saree which was given to me by my mother-in-law on my wedding day,” read Gandhi's tweet, which is absent from Twitter now.
Her tweet comes a week after Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra posted a throwback picture in a saree. Her post gained immense popularity and was retweeted by over four thousand people.
