Political battle lines had been drawn as debate on the first no-confidence motion in 15 years was underway in Lok Sabha. However, all eyes were on the duel between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi during the third day of Monsoon Session. While Rahul Gandhi led the Opposition's charge, PM Modi is expected to paint the Congress and other Opposition parties as an "opportunistic alliance" with the sole aim of dislodging him from power. The day-long debate on no-confidence motion saw some lighter moments when Rahul Gandhi was speaking.
The highlight of the session was definitely the wink Rahul Gandhi shot from his eyes, his quirkiness left people and netizens in splits, here is how the session went:-
1). Rahul Gandhi’s attacks
Rahul Gandhi took jibes at the central govt. for poor administration and his sarcasm was so on point that even sarcasm appreciated him.
However, the BJP loyalists weren’t really happy with Rahul’s accusation and many of them went ahead to call his accusations baseless.
2). A hug a day keeps the differences away?
Rahul Gandhi claimed that no matter if BJP keeps calling him a ‘Pappu’, he still respects the party. Post this statement, he went ahead and hugged PM Modi and it was definitely the ‘ Sight of the Decade’.
