Modi is seen telling the two leaders about the opposition's memes targeting him.
Meanwhile, three months after a landmark Supreme Court verdict struck down instant triple talaq, the Narendra Modi government is likely to introduce a legislation to end the practice ('talaq-e-biddat') in the forthcoming winter session of Parliament.
The ruling party has said that the offensive post (now deleted) exemplifies the Congress' elitist mindset and that an enraged public will punish it by ensuring the BJP sweeps the upcoming election in Gujarat.
However, Congress leaders denied that the handle was run by the party.More news: NYC weather: Thanksgiving weekend to remain clear but chilly

Before becoming the Prime Minister in 2014 with a thumping majority, Modi was mocked as a tea-seller who can never be a Prime Minister.
In 2014, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had made the same mistake at the All India Congress Committee convention, saying Modi was welcome to sell tea there. "Does Crown Prince @OfficeOfRG support this?"
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said the party "strongly disapproves and rejects such humour".
Youth Congress president Raja Amarinder Brar apologised: "I apologise for such bad humour. Differences in policy and opinion aside, Congress culture imbibes respect for the PM and all political opponents". "Despite political differences with the BJP and having suffered everyday abuse from their leaders, we respect the Prime Minister and all political opponents". Country expects ur response on the tweet of the youth Congress, which is shameful & insulting to poor.
As an act of damage control, the tweet was later deleted.
