Rahul Gandhi takes 'teleprompter' jibe at PM Narendra Modi
New Delhi : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi never misses a chance to take a jibe on PM Narendra Modi; in a recent he targeted him for taking an abrupt pause due to a technical glitch at the World Economic Forum.
"Itna jhooth teleprompter bhi nahin jhel paya (not even the teleprompter could handle such lies)," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
Meanwhile, BJP leaders posted the technical glitch on Davos organizers.
"Don't those getting excited at the tech glitch not realise that the problem was at WEF's end? They were not able to patch PM, so requested him to start again, which is evident in the way Klaus Schwab said that he will again give a short introduction and then open up the session...," tweeted Shalabh Mani Tripathi, media adviser to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Some BJP leaders also tried to explain what exactly went wrong at the WEF.
PM Modi's speech started without the English interpretation, the video said, and he was interrupted mid-speech by the coordinator. Klaus Schwab announced the start of the official session after that, the video explained, and then PM Modi restarted his speech with the English translation.
In his speech at the event, PM Narendra Modi emphasized how this is the best time to invest in India.
