Rahul Gandhi dares PM Modi for ‘fuel challenge’
Ministers in the BJP government have been exhibiting a sudden passion to showcase their fitness on social media and the party’s “fitness challenge” has gained momentum on Twitter. Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday, however, managed to dampen Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s enthusiasm for displaying his fitness by throwing another challenge that the PM didn’t seem that enthusiastic about – the fuel challenge.
Earlier in the day, Mr Modi accepted cricketer Virat Kohli’s “fitness challenge” on Twitter. Mr Gandhi dived in as the best troll of the day and dared him to respond to his “fuel challenge”. Mr Gandhi tweeted: “Glad to see you accept the @imVkohli fitness challenge. Here’s one from me: Reduce Fuel prices or the Congress will do a nationwide agitation and force you to do so. I look forward to your response.# FuelChallenge.” (sic) Prime Minister is yet to respond to Mr Gandhi and Congress’ “fuel challenge”.
It all started with the Union Sports minister, Mr Rajyavardhan Singh’s tweet urging the country to take up a #FitnessChallenge. While Prime Minister is yet to post his video, virtually all the BJP leaders, ministers began posting theirs doing exercises while at work.
