Rahul Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi lok sabha, rahul gandhi lok sabha speech, Rahul gandhi price rise, Rahul Gandhi took swipes at PM Modi, saying “now people are saying ‘Arhar Modi'” instead of ‘Har Har Modi’.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi Thursday, speaking in the Lok Sabha, attacked the Modi government over ‘rising food prices’. Rahul reminded Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi of his election promise in 2014 to bring down inflation and cost of vegetables and pulses. Saying that PM Modi’s speeches are always high on rhetoric, Rahul came down heavily on his failure to safeguard the interests of the poor.

“During elections, Modiji had said ‘make me a chowkidar’ (watchman). Now, there is theft of dal under the very nose of the chowkidar. But the chowkidar has not uttered a word. He is mum. … Now he has become a big person. Leave that job of chowkidari to the Congress,” Gandhi said.

Rahul took swipes at PM Modi, saying “now people are saying ‘Arhar Modi'” instead of ‘Har Har Modi’.

The Congress vice-president listed down how the cost of tomatoes, urad and tur dal have shot up over 100 per cent since the time NDA came in to power.

“You may make as many hollow promises as you want, but give us a date by when the prices of daal will come down,”
Rahul said.

Here is how Twitter reacted to his speech:

# “This afternoon I listened to the speech of Rahul Gandhi. I must say he is a great stress buster! Somehow his very sight sets me laughing.”

# “Are we witnessing Rahul Gandhi’s much awaited coming of age? If yes, aptly timed. Rest time will tell. #ArharModi #CongressForUP”

# “Lessons on inflation in India for #Congress party.. The picture doesn’t look pretty for Rahul Gandhi..”

# “Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha once again exposing the empty rhetoric used by Narendra Modi to hoax the people of India. #AraharModi indeed.”

# “Post every photo-op leaders speech there is a earthy son of soil ploughing Parliament
For every Rahul Gandhi there is a Hukmdev NarayanYadav”

# “RahulGandhi speaks of people’s predicament to spellbound audience in Parliament. Frm #SuitBoot to #ArharModi it’s RG”

# “RahulGandhi ji’s words in LokSabha echoes the pain of common man of the country, compelled to battle inflation, price rise #ArharModi”

Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha leaves the govt speechless on the issue of price rise! #ArharModi

#

# “#RahulGandhi shouting on price rise a bit too late Vegetable prices have crashed over last 2 weeks Pulses to follow over next few months”

        Whenever Rahul hi stands up to speak in the Parliament we expect to hear words of wisdom straight from the ' Horses mouth ' unfortunately we end up listening some laughable wrong statement from a donkey's mouth .

            When we see the future President of congress sleeping in the Parliament it is proving the proverb correct ' A picture paints a thousand words '
