New Delhi, July 20: Rahul Gandhi had said in 2016 post demonetisation that there would be an earthquake if he were allowed to speak. He had said that the government was running away from a debate.
If they allow me to speak, you will see what an earthquake will happen, he had said. Today as he gets set to speak in Parliament during the no-confidence motion, the BJP took at a dig at him reminding him of his 2016 comment.
Taking a dig at Gandhi, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav tweeted, saying 38 minutes were allocated for an earthquake in the House and 13 minutes for the mover of the motion.
13 mts for d mover of d motion n 38 minutes for ‘earthquake’ 😀😀 https://t.co/8708EtXQJZ— Ram Madhav (@rammadhavbjp) July 19, 2018
BJP leader Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga said, "Heard @RahulGandhi is planning to boycott Parliament bfr his Earthquake speech. @ianuragthakur Ji taaala lgwa do aaj Gate pr, Rahul ji ki bhookamp speech sunne bina jaane na dena #BhookampAaneWalaHai."
He followed that up with a tweet reading, "Please every start prayers kyunki aaj #BhookampAaneWalaHai". Bagga then made a series of tweets using the hashtag #BhookampAaneWalaHai.
BJP's IT Cell in-charge Amit Malviya even started a survey, asking, "Today's question: If there will be an earthquake every 15 minutes, then how many times will there be an earthquake in 38 minutes?"
आज का सवाल : अगर 15 मिनट में एक बार भूकंप आता है तो, 38 मिनट में भूकंप कितनी बार आएगा ? #BhookampAaneWalaHai— Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) July 20, 2018
