Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over the 'danda' jibe. Replying to a debate on Motion of Thanks to the President's Address, PM Modi made an apparent reference to the Congress MP's rally and said, "I heard a Congress leader say yesterday that youth will hit Modi with sticks in 6 months. I have decided that I will increase my frequency of 'Surya Namaskar' so that my back becomes so strong that it can bear the hit of so many sticks."
After Rahul Gandhi makes an intervention in Modi's speech, he said, "I was speaking for the last 30-40 minutes but it took this long for the current to reach there. Many tubelights are like this."
Rahul Gandhi had on Wednesday warned Modi that in the next six months, the youth will hit him with sticks if he doesn’t address the issue of unemployment in the country. Addressing a rally in Delhi on Wednesday, Congress' Rahul Gandhi had said, "The PM is right now delivering speeches, but six months later, he will not be able to even leave his home."
