Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday labeled Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fitness video as ‘bizarre’ and ‘ridiculous’ at an Iftar party hosted by him.
While hosting an Iftar party at a hotel in New Delhi on Wednesday, Gandhi said this amounted to bankruptcy and asked CPI-M’s Sitaram Yechury to post his fitness video to match PM Modi.
"Did you see the PM's fitness video? It is ridiculous... I mean... It is bizarre... This is bankruptcy," he said as he poked fun at the video put out by the prime minister.
Gandhi then turned to Yechury asking him to put out his fitness video as a challenge to Modi’s, while sharing a table with former presidents Pranab Mukherjee and Pratibha Patil.
TMC leader Dinesh Trivedi, BSP leader Satish Chandra Misra and DMK's Kanimozhi were among those who had a hearty laugh over the prime minister's video.
Mukherjee, Patil and former vice president Hamid Ansari, who were sharing the table, were silently hearing the conversation.
Among others who also attended the Congress chief's Iftar included former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi was not present as she is currently abroad.
Earlier, Congress leader Pramod Tewari termed the fitness video as an insult to the supreme sacrifice of the four BSF personnel who died in cross-border firing from Pakistan in Kashmir.
