"The government is running from debate. If they allow me to  speak then you will see an earthquake will come."

These words from the then Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in December of 2016 had been widely praised from party workers and ridiculed with equal intensity by rivals. At the time, Rahul Gandhi had said that the government is shying away from answering important questions and that if he is given just 15 minutes to speak, 'Prime Minister Narendra Modi won't be able to stand.'

After 19 months, he gets 38 minutes. And Twitter is wondering if there indeed would be an earthquake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the President of his party, Rahul Gandhi is expected to lead Congress' attack on BJP and on PM Modi in particular. He is expected to be joined by senior party leader Mallikarjun Kharge in putting forth Congress' charges against BJP. Interestingly, TDP - the mover of the no-confidence motion - will get 13 minutes in what may well turn into a Rahul vs Modi contest.
