Mumbai, June 13: Rahu Gandhi today, June 13, held a media press conference in Mumbai, but astonishingly the conference went only for two minutes forty-seven seconds according to reporters who attended the meet. Many reporters fumed as they left office at 6 am early morning to avoid any traffic and reach for the conference on time which was scheduled at 8 am, but the Congress President himself arrived at 9:20 am and wrapped it up by 9:22 am.
On social media like Twitter, senior news channel reporters fired Rahul Gandhi for holding such a historic press conference which went for only two minutes. They also slammed the Congress and asked henceforth not to conduct such short press conference and wast their time.

Usually, the press conference is called to answer questions of media, but here they were not allowed to ask any questions which angered the press more. Rahul Gandhi in his two minutes conference managed to attack PM Narendra Modi on soaring fuel price and spoke about mahagathbandhan; how all opposition parties are coming together against NDA government over their failure to fulfil the promise of ache din (good days).
Rahul Gandhi arrived in Mumbai early on Tuesday morning and is on a two-day tour in Maharashtra. According to his schedule, today he will meet the kin of Dadaji Khobragade, the rural inventor who revolutionised rice farming, at Chandrapur in Vidarbha, before returning to Delhi.
