Another BJP leader Kapil Mishra sought to know whether Rahul was partying with Chinese 'agents' in Nepal.
"This is not a matter of personal life of Rahul Gandhi. With whom Rahul Gandhi was partying? Are they Chinese agents? Does Rahul Gandhi tweet against the Army under pressure from China? Questions will be asked," he tweeted.
