"Staring at defeat in Bihar, the leaders and ministers of a government talking of Digital India have become desperate and are calling a GoogleAd the ad of Pakistani newspaper Dawn. Modi ji at least make your leaders aware of the basic facts of the digital world," Kumar said on Twitter while his party launched a sharp attack on Rudy seeking his immediate sacking.

Kumar also said that the Chief Executive Officer of Google Inc Sundar Pichai can also help him in this. PM Modi had last month congratulated Pichai on his appointment in Google.

Rudy, who is Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, got into the row when he shared the screenshot of Dawn website on his Twitter handle showing a poll advertisement of Nitish Kumar.

"Nitish advertises in PAKISTAN daily ‘”DAWN” e-edition to woo voters in Bihar. Why Pak? Whom does he want to reach?" Rudy tweeted. However, the remarks led to an outrage on social media, after which he deleted the post.

Scores of twitteratis castigated Rudy over his 'ignorance' about Google ads and questioned his knowledge of the cyber world arguing that Google provides ads on any site based on the reader’s locations and browsing habits and insisted that it's not an ad in 'Dawn'.
