The Congress has been insisting that Rahul Gandhi has gone to the US to attend a conference ‘Weekend with Charlie Rose’ at Aspen Institute in Colorado where thought leaders from different walks of life like politics, finance, technology, media, medicine, sports etc gather to deliberate on multiple issues.
The BJP mocked at the Congress' explanation, Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said the Congress leader was an “expert without knowledge”.
Taking a dig at Rahul, Patra said it may be a “forced vacation” as, according to him, allies JD(U) and RJD wanted him out of the Bihar poll campaign.
Patra's colleague GVL Narasimha Rao said, “Weekend with Charlie Rose was held between June 25 and July 4. "Is Rahul Gandhi travelling back in time?"
