New Delhi, April 4: Rahul Gandhi, the Vice-President of Congress, addressed giants of Indian Inc at the annual general meeting of industry body Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) on Thursday, April 4.
The CII meet was attended by top business leaders and industrialists such as Bharti Airtel chief Sunil Bharti Mittal, Godrej Group Chairman Adi Godrej and Wipro Chairman Azim Premji.
Though Rahul Gandhi came out as an honest person, the politician in him made little effort to hide behind the anecdotal speech and few minutes of question-answer session. While many hail Rahul for his deliberate speech, others bashed him for his "immature style" of delivering speech at an important platform such as CII meet.
Whether he is good or bad, one thing is clear that the young Gandhi scion has the capability to engage Indians. Popular micro-blogging site Twitter was flooded with trending hash tags which were related to Rahul Gandhi and his speech at CII. The trending tags were - Rahul Gandhi to India Inc, Pappu, PappuCII, Rahul Gandhi, Girish and many more.
Pappu is believed to be a young Indian boy who is worthy of nothing. The 42-year-old Congress leader became a victim of joke while many mocked him calling him "Pappu".
Here are some tweets which reveal how the Congress leader became centre of attraction on Thursday:
