Video: Rahul Gandhi caught "sleeping" during price rise debate in Lok Sabha; Twitterati reacts


New Delhi, July 9: In a major embarrassment to the Congress, party's Vice President Rahul Gandhi was on Wednesday caught sleeping live on the camera in the Lok Sabha during the debate on price rise.

The ruling BJP used the visuals of Rahul's 'dozing off' on the house TV channel to hit out at the Congress.

The Congress was not serious on the issue of price rise, and Rahul Gandhi "was so bored during the discussion on price rise that he went into sleep", Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters.

"Rahul Gandhi was seen sleeping in parliament during a debate on price rise. That's what the Congress was doing during their 10-year rule," Hussain tweeted.

The visuals of Rahul Gandhi, the Lok Sabha member (MP) from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh - dozing off were aired by many news channels.

As the news spread that Rahul had dozed off in Lok Sabha, the Twitteati, as usual flooded the microbloggig site with some really humurous tweets.

Some Twitter reactions are as follows:
