When Rahul Gandhi turned ‘weatherman’

Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on January 08, 2018


Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi issued a “weather report” on Monday, predicting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would “rain sops” in Gujarat during his public rally in the poll-bound State.

“Weather report: Ahead of elections, it will rain sops in Gujarat,” he said on his Twitter handle, using the phrase “ jumlon ki barish (rain sops)” in his Hindi tweet.

Rahul also tagged a report headlined: “ As Gujarat waits for poll date, State gets projects worth nearly ₹12,500 crore”.

The Congress leader’s dig at Modi comes in the wake of speculation that the Prime Minister may announce a host of sops for poll-bound Gujarat.

Both the Congress and the Left have accused the BJP and the Centre of “putting pressure” on the Election Commission to delay the announcement of Assembly elections in Gujarat.

“Election announcement for Gujarat has been delayed because someone will go there like Santa Clause and announce yet another stream of promises that will never be fulfilled,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said on the day the election dates for Himachal Pradesh were announced.
