Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's Tweet:
सही कैच पकड़ने के लिए अंत तक गेंद पर नजर और खेल की सच्ची भावना होनी जरुरी है। वरना आप सारा दोष #gravity, गणित, ओला-उबर और इधर-उधर की बातों पर मढ़ते रहेंगे।

Earlier this week, Finance Minister Sitharaman blamed the millennials and their mindset for the fall in the auto sector. Sitharaman said that millennials prefer cab aggregrators and ride hailing services like Ola and Uber rather than "committing to buying an automobile." The Finance Minister added that the Automobile industry has been affected by the BS6 norms.
Yesterday, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal made a gaffe as he asked the media to not go into numbers for looking at India's development under the Narendra Modi regime, saying, "Maths never helped Einstein discover gravity." Later he admitted his mistake for wrongly attributing the discovery of gravity to Einstein instead on Newton. However, he slammed media for ignoring the message he wanted to convey and quoting him out of context. Congress also mocked the Railways Minister for his mistake.
