New Delhi, July 20: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi once again became a butt of jokes after his video of sleeping in Lok Sabha during discussion went viral. Rahul Gandhi, who came to attend Monsoon Session of the Parliament was caught sleeping in the Lower House during a debate. Rahul Gandhi’s quick nap has left Congress party embarrassed again.
Even as the Parliament turned into a battle-ground between Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government and Congress over the Gujarat Dalits’ issue, Rahul Gandhi chose to sleep. In the video, Rahul Gandhi could be seen dozing off in Parliament during a debate. The Gandhi scion is seen sleeping comfortably, while Congress leaders are seen shouting right beside him. But their loud voices fail to wake him up. The incident took place when Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh was giving statement on Gujarat’s Dalit beating incident.
This is not the first time when Rahul Gandhi was caught napping in the Parliament. In July 2014, Gandhi fell asleep during a debate on price rise in the Lok Sabha. However Congress leaders always defend him saying that the party’s vice president was in deep thoughts and not sleeping. Watch the video below:
