With a picture of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal taking a nap during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech going viral, senior AAP leaders took to social media and tweeted images of ministers Arun Jaitley, Manohar Parrikar and Anant Kumar dozing off at the event as well. The AAP leaders termed the speech ‘boring’, ‘uninspiring’ and ‘one worthy of a medal at the Olympics for the Most Boring Public Speech’.
Minutes into the PM’s address, Water and Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra in a series of tweets said, “Bhaiyon Behenon, Should we wait for it to end. Or declare it Most Uninspiring Speech ever from Red Fort.Bhaiyon Behenon – saab already used it for 420 times in his speech.” “In nutshell – Modi ji doing ‘Rudali’ from Red Fort – Pralap (delirium), Vilap (mourning) aur bhaiyon behenon. Wahan bachche bhi baithe hai subah se, reham karo, khatam karo (Children are also sitting there since morning. Have mercy, just conclude.)”
Senior leader Ashutosh also tweeted, “What a boring speech of Modi. Put every one to sleep! See this pic carefully every one is sleeping,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted, “Lagta hai pradhanmantri ji ki speech kaafi boring thi (Looks like PM’s speech was very boring).” Though Kejriwal did not comment on the issue, he retweeted Sisodia’s post.
