New Delhi: Challenges for Prime Minister Narendra Modi started pouring in soon after he accepted the fitness challenge by cricketer Virat Kohli. Rahul Gandhi too has thrown up a challenge before PM Modi which is no way close to fitness.
In a tweet, the Congress president said that the Prime Minister should either cut down fuel prices or be ready to face a nationwide agitation by the Congress.
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
