Joining the trend, Priyanka Gandhi tweeted a photo showing her in a pink and gold Benarasi saree.
“Morning puja on the day of my wedding (22 years ago!) #SareeTwitter,” she tweeted with her photograph.
She was flooded with anniversary wishes following the tweet, prompting her to clarify that her wedding anniversary is in February.
“Thanks for all the anniversary wishes…but its just a throwback photo for the #SareeTwitter guys, my anniv is in Feb!” Priyanka Gandhi said on the microblogging site.
In a tongue-in-cheek remark, she also tagged her husband Robert Vadra and added, “You can still take me out for dinner”.
Congress’ Nagma, Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi and BJP’s Nupur Sharma are some of the other women politicians who have posted their favourite pictures in sarees as part of the #SareeTwitter trend.
