New Delhi: A video clip showing Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi apparently dozing off momentarily in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday has gone viral on social networking sites.
Gandhi's momentary 'nap' was recorded at a time when Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge and other Congress members were protesting Home Minister Rajnath Singh's response to the queries on violence on Dalits in Una, Gujarat.
The video clip, which showed Rahul Gandhi resting his head on his right hand, with eyes apparently shut, gave a chance to the Opposition parties to scoff at the Congress.
Not only the Opposition, Twitterati also trolled the Congress vice president for catching forty winks in Parliament.
Here are some of the reactions:
Thanks to the #SleepingBeautyRahul controversy, Rahul's elevation as Cong president has been put off for the 19,467'th time.
