New Delhi: Indian National Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday wrote a congratulation note for prime Minister Narendra Modi after the press conference that took place at BJP’s headquarter in New Delhi.
“Congratulations Modi Ji. Excellent Press Conference! Showing up is half the battle. Next time Mr Shah may even allow you to answer a couple of questions. Well done,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
In a surprised move, Modi showed up on the dais for a scheduled press conference by BJP president Amit Shah, who gave a detailed report card on the performance of the NDA government as well as party’s extensive electioneering.
Modi diverted questions, saying he will not answer because the press conference is being addressed by Shah, and in BJP’s system, discipline has to be followed.
“We are disciplined soldiers of the party. The party president is everything for us,” Modi said.
The prime minister said the journey for an honest government started on May 17, 2014, a day after Lok Sabha election results were announced.
