Taking a dig at Priyanka Gandhi over her choice of dresses, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentarian Harish Dwivedi on Saturday said she wears jeans in Delhi but dons saree and sindoor (vermilion) in Uttar Pradesh, reported news agency ANI.

Weeks after Priyanka was given charge eastern Uttar Pradesh, Dwivedi said, "For me or the BJP, Priyanka Gandhi is not an issue. If Rahul Gandhi is a failure, Priyanka is also a failure". 

On 30 January, Surendra Singh, BJP MLA from Rohaniya constituency of Uttar Pradesh, dubbed the Congress president "Raavan" and his sister Priyanka "Surpanakha" — the demons from Hindu epic Ramayana.

"We all know that before Ram and Raavan fought in Lanka, Raavan sent his sister Shurpanakha. It looks like (in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections), Rahul will play the role of Raavan, while Ram, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is making India proud across the world," Singh had said.

A few days before Singh's remark, BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya had also taken a dig at the Congress party and criticised them for using "chocolaty faces" to fight the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

On 25 January, Bihar minister Vinod Narayan Jha, in a statement that had potential to stir up a controversy, called Priyanka "a very beautiful face" who had no political achievements to her credit.
