Rahul Gandhi on Thursday cracked up social networking sites after his jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a new slogan- Arhar Modi- in a reference to rising daal prices in the country.
Calling him 'arhar Modi, arhar Modi", Rahul Gandhi today took swipes at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha and tore into his election promise of bringing down prices.
He also needled Modi on his election slogan asking people to make him a "chowkhidar" (watchman) and not PM and said under his nose but there was "theft" of pulses and he was not speaking a word on it.
In a speech that lasted just a little over 15 minutes, Gandhi asked the prime minister to give a datee by which the prices of pulses will come down.
Taking a jibe at the BJP slogan 'Har Har Modi' used during the Lok Sabha polls, he said "now people are saying 'Arhar Modi'."
Soon after his speech in Lok Sabha, #ArharModi started trending on Twitter. The hashtag was one of the top trends today.
Here is how Twitteratis reacted to Rahul Gandhi’s speech:
BJP and #ArharModi are like if you eat non-veg, we'll kill you and we'll increase the price of veg so high, you won't be able to eat them 😂😜— Shaan Haider (@shaanhaider) July 28, 2016
