Rahul Gandhi has been going after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP in a sustained way over the past month. On Tuesday, the BJP made a bid to troll the Congress chief by tweeting a video of him fumbling through a speech in the Lok Sabha.
The tweet has gone viral and has been retweeted about 1600 times and been 'liked' about 3200 times, within two hours. "Rahul ji, we all want you to speak in Parliament... How can we let go off such fun!" read the BJP tweet.

Rahul Gandhi was also trolled by the Karnataka unit of the BJP for his failed attempt at pronouncing the names of some of the icons that Karnataka has produced.

The comic was a reference to a tweet from BJP MP Rajeev Chandrashekar last month, which showed Rahul speaking at what seems to be an election rally in Karnataka, and struggling to pronounce the name of Sir M Visvesvaraya, a Bharat Ratna recipient.
So the leader of the party that aftr 5 years of corrupt govt - is now claiming to build a #NavaKarnataka doesnt know about the great son of #Karnataka n #BharatRatna #SirMVishvesvaraya ! @BJP4Karnataka #KarnatakaElection2018 pic.twitter.com/FkS1pNADwD

Visvesvaraya was not the only son of Karnataka Rahul mispronounced in that speech. He had also misspoken the name of Krishnaraja Wodeyar, while getting 'Tipu Sultan ji' and 'Kuvempu' correct.
The BJP's tweet was met with the predictable response of a number of videos that showed PM Modi fumbling in his speeches.
