A day after the Indian National Congress snatched three states away from the Bharatiya Janata Party, social media has not hesitated from giving its credit to Congress Party President Rahul Gandhi.
Congress got the majority of seats in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and finally in Madhya Pradesh after high (and prolonged) drama on Tuesday night. However, the party failed to mark its presence in the states of Mizoram and Telangana.
Soon after the results were declared, congratulatory messages started pouring in on Twitter with many claiming to be "Waiting for a @RaGaWaves19."
Senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha also congratulated "our own dashing, dynamic & of course charming @RahulGandhi."
Sir ji !
Now please tell us who’s ‘Pappu’ and who’s turned out to be the real ‘Feku’!
Our own dashing, dynamic & of course charming @RahulGandhi once again and once for all has shown his charisma.
Sirji ‘Taali Captain ko to Gaali bhi captain ko‘!
Don’t you think Rahul Gandhi

Now that @RahulGandhi is no more the joker in the pack; he is the victor, a gracious, dignified victor after a long hard battle, BJP (and the media) will have to find new words to describe him— hopefully more respectful. And, hopefully, this time, they will lay off his family — Pritish Nandy (@PritishNandy) December 12, 2018
And for my friends in the BJP - you can’t blame @RahulGandhi for losing elections & not apply the same yardstick to Modi ji. If those were Rahul’s losses then these 3 heartland state losses belong to the Prime Minister & his policies.

Small things matter. When @RahulGandhi began his presser yesterday evening & @rssurjewala handed him the mic, RG took it without so much as a nodded thank you. Simple courtesies reflect background that money can’t buy — Minhaz Merchant (@MinhazMerchant) December 12, 2018
And then there were memes.
