Jaitley said that Rahul has no qualms about releasing his photographs with a convicted ally whom he had once opposed.
"The fringe Party having got a minuscule number of votes in Gorakhpur and Phoolpur bye-elections celebrates the victory of Samajwadi Party," Jaitley said.
Further, taking a dig at the Congress, he said, "A challenge which dynastic organisations face is that their popular appeal or acceptability is co-existent with the current generation of the dynasty."
Jaitley also pointed out that Rahul along with certain Left Party leaders visited the Jawahar Lal Nehru University when the slogans of "Tukde Tukde" threatening India's geographical integrity were raised.
"I had questioned its leadership in a Parliamentary debate whether its earlier leaders would have ever allowed a Congressmen to identify itself with the national disintegration campaign. But, its current leader preferred a fringe position," Jaitley said.
Jaitley's blog came after Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on the Union Finance Minister in a tweet.
"Dear FM," Rahul Gandhi wrote, "As you are indisposed and Finance Secretary is on vacation with his Guru on a quest for inner peace, I have decided to shut the Finance Ministry till further notice."
"The PMO will take all financial policy decisions as before," he concluded sarcastically, before signing," Prime Minister".
