LUCKNOW: Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a dig at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi by doing his mimicry and copying his body gestures.
Congress President took a long pull of air and his left hand resting on a pumped up chest spoke to the mic, "Earlier, Narendra Modi ji used to speak like this, like this." The crowd Priyanka Gandhi, Raj Babbar and Jyotiraditya Scindia cheered. A few seconds later, Rahul Gandhi meekly clasped his hands on the mic and stooped a bit. He continued: "These days, Narendra Modi speaks like this." Gandhi said, "Bhaiyo aur beheno, I don't know who Anil Ambani is, I never gave Anil Ambani Rs. 20,000 crore..."
The grnd old part accused PM Modi and his government of wrongdoing in signing a deal with France for buying Rafale fighter jets. The opposition party has also accused the Modi government of favouring businessman Anil Ambani in the deal.
Earleier also, Rahul Gandhi has mimicked PM Modi during a political event. Last week in Bhopal, the Congress president while addressing party supporters stood straight with both hands firmly on the wooden box where the mic was fixed, and said, "I, a chowkidar with 56-inch chest, will erase corruption." Moments later, stooping behind the mic and shrinking from the stage, he said, "Today, Narendra Modi gives speeches like this."
