Rahul laughs at PM’s tears

New Delhi: Posting a 34 s clip from Narendra Modi’s emotional speech made in Goa today, Congress vice-president has questioned the Prime Minister’s emotions on Twitter.

The prime minister had to halt his speech for a few seconds following the visible expression of his feelings to turn normal again.

The “first laughter” part in Gandhi’s tweet apparently alludes to some moments from the prime minister’s visit to Japan, about which the Congress vice-president had earlier tweeted, “Modi laughs as poor cry,” even though the laughter seen in the video does not accompany any description of a situation the poor face.

It was a speech in which the prime minister was addressing a largely Indian audience in Kobe, Japan, that was constantly cheering Modi’s speech where he explained why the sudden and abrupt demonetisation of Indian currency notes of denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 was necessary. The portion of laughter corresponded to a part in the speech where he was enjoying the trouble it had caused to hoarders of black money.

Modi had attacked Rahul Gandhi in moments before the part of his speech in Goa that Gandhi has tweeted, saying, “Those involved in big scams, now have to stand in long queues to take out Rs 4000.”

“I know the forces up against me, they may not let me live, they may ruin me because their loot of 70 years is in trouble, but am prepared,” Modi had added.
