Last week, when the social media was abuzz with the #FitnessChallenge, President of the Indian National Congress, Rahul Gandhi challenged PM Narendra Modi with his own twist to it. He posed a #FuelChallenge to the PM. We all know that the petrol and diesel prices were increased drastically and that’s why Rahul baba had challenged our PM to reduce the petrol prices. However, PM hasn’t replied, like usual.
Dear PM,— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) May 24, 2018
Glad to see you accept the @imVkohli fitness challenge. Here’s one from me:
Reduce Fuel prices or the Congress will do a nationwide agitation and force you to do so.
I look forward to your response.#FuelChallenge
A surprise came our way when recently, the petrol and diesel prices were reduced by 60 paise. However, later it was revealed that there was a technical glitch and that the prices have indeed been reduced, but not by 60 paise. The actual deduction in price is 1 paisa. Yes, you guys read it right, 1 PAISA!
Now Rahul Gandhi has once again tweeted to PM Modi asking him if reducing 1 paisa on the petrol and diesel prices is a prank. He has also stated in his tweet that this was not the response he had been expecting to his Fuel Challenge.
Dear PM,— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) May 30, 2018
You've cut the price of Petrol and Diesel today by 1 paisa. ONE paisa!??
If this is your idea of a prank, it’s childish and in poor taste.
P.S. A ONE paisa cut is not a suitable response to the #FuelChallenge I threw you last week. https://t.co/u7xzbUUjDS
Well, we are not sure how good Rahul’s political tactics are as he has always been trolled. However, we can surely say that his sense of humour is quite good and we can see that in his tweets. He is placing quite calculated and shrewd attacks as the leader of the opposition, with social media being his weapon.Meanwhile, we are still wondering, 1 paisa!
