Rahul sleeps as Parliament debates price rise

Last Updated: Thu, Jul 10, 2014 00:33 hrs

Rahul Gandhi, the Congress vice-president who led his party to its worst electoral defeats, is a very tired man these days. And hence, when the Lok Sabha was discussing price rise, Mr. Gandhi, whom his party claims to be crusader for the underprivileged, under-represented, unemployed and so on, was caught snoozing (catnapping and then yawning) probably after a subsidized lunch at the MP canteen.

A TV grab shows Mr. Gandhi’s eyes closed, his head slightly tilted towards the right, his cheeks and eyebrows relaxed.
However, NCP leader Praful Patel lunged to provide his habitual defence of the Gandhi scion. “Just because people close their eyes in Parliament doesn’t mean they are sleeping,” he said.

The funniest Rahul Gandhi cartoons!

Arey Rahul ji, jaago!
