The soon-to-be Congress president Rahul Gandhi ended up getting his math wrong in the 'question a day to the BJP' social media campaign.
The question to the BJP was whether its government is for the rich and indicating this, Rahul Gandhi spoke about the rising prices of essential commodities.
He went on to share a table with figures on Twitter showing the percentage rise in prices of gas cylinders, daals, tomato, onions, milk, and diesel.

जुमलों की बेवफाई मार गई
नोटबंदी की लुटाई मार गई
GST सारी कमाई मार गई
बाकी कुछ बचा तो -
महंगाई मार गई
बढ़ते दामों से जीना दुश्वार

But all the percentages shown are inflated by 100 points on that table.For example, the daal prices have hiked to Rs 80 a kilo from Rs 45 which indicates a rise of 77 percent, however, the table shows a rise of 177 percent.
The other items on the table also show the same inflation of 100 percent.Rahul Gandhi has been questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the last seven days, seeking accountability from the BJP regarding the promises made to Gujarat in previous polls. His 'question a day' social media campaign garnered criticism from several BJP leaders.
