New Delhi: Replying to Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi's attack on Narendra Modi-led NDA government, over the burning issue of spiralling prices of essential commodities, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Poonam Mahajan gave a befitting reply to the Congress vice president.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha, the BJP leader from Maharashtra, launched a counter attack on the Gandhi scion for criticising the Prime Minister over escalating prices. Taking a dig at Rahul, Mahajan said, it was good to know that the Congress vice president, who is mostly out on political tourism, these days is talking about youth empowerment and rising prices.
She further hit out at the Amethi MP for ignoring the price rise issue during 10 years of UPA's rule.
Concluding her speech, the Lok Sabha MP said, what can she say about those (Congress) who have been sleeping for the last 60 years. She further took a dig at Rahul saying, there are some, who doze off in the Parliament.
Last week, a video clip showing Rahul apparently dozing off momentarily in the Lok Sabha on went viral.
Mahajan heaped praise on PM Modi describing him as 'Lohpurush'.
