After Virat Kohli, Rahul Gandhi has a challenge for Modi and its more of a warning!
The staggering rise in petrol rates has left the country fuming at the government. In case you do not know, the fuel prices have soared ever since the announcement of the Karnataka election results and it has been a major headache for the common man. People have taken the protest on to the social platforms raising their voices against the increasing rates which moved up to record-breaking numbers.
While the laymen continue to thrash the BJP government, the latest to throw in a warning was Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently accepted Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s fitness challenge. An initiative put forward by ex-Olympian and minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, RajyavardhanRathore, saw Virat Kohli upload a video of his workout where he tagged Modi Ji to do the same. And guess what? The PM replied in style.
Here is what Virat tweeted:
I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by @ra_THORe sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni Bhai for the same. 😀 #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay pic.twitter.com/e9BAToE6bg

Modi Ji’s reply:

Rahul Gandhi took the opportunity to present a challenge of his own to the Prime Minister. Citing the example of Virat’s challenge, Rahul asked Modi to reduce the fuel prices and stated that if he doesn’t the Congress will force him to do so.
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

It will be interesting to see whether Modi Ji takes up the challenge or not, but the Congress leader has certainly made his intentions clear.
