Rahul’s #FuelChallenge to PM Modi

Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi: A hat tip to the Congress Party’s social media head, Divya Spandana for taking the PM’s initiative of a fit India and the now trending #FitnessChallenge and tweaking it to the party’s advantage. Spandana, who, manages Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter handle @RahulGandhi, tweeted,

“Dear PM,

Glad to see you accept the @imVkohli fitness challenge. Heres one from me:

Reduce Fuel prices or the Congress will do a nationwide agitation and force you to do so.

I look forward to your response.


To bring you up to speed, India captain Virat Kohli challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an online fitness dare, which the PM accepted and promised to post a video of his workout regimen.

The initiative, called the ‘Hum Fit Toh India Fit’ challenge, was started by Sports Minister Rajavardhan Singh Rathore, who posted a short video of himself doing push-ups.

“Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon,” Modi tweeted from his personal handle.

The Congress has been attacking the government over the unpredented fuel price hike.
