She also tweeted that a "bleak future" awaited the Congress and not the nation, and quipped, "However, thank you @officeofRG for all that you do. Sincerely from the BJP!"
"@OfficeOfRG u r 42 yrs late on this 1. No prizes for guessing who was inspired by Hitler, imposed the Emergency & trampled over democracy (sic)," she said in a tweet.
