Rahul Gandhi addressed a news conference in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. Republic TV reporters were not allowed during this for which Congress has not yet provided a reason.
While he took the attack to the BJP during his briefing, the Congress President seemed uncomfortable, nervous and jittery while answering questions subsequently posed to him. Over the course of the 30-minutes-long conference, Rahul Gandhi ‘ducked’ several questions too, especially those regarding the Patidar quota and the Pakistan-Congress meeting.
However, the most interesting aspect of the conference was how, on three occasions, Rahul Gandhi required outside intervention to help bail him out when asked tricky questions. Twice, his party-mates had to answer on his behalf, and on another occasion, Ashok Gehlot, sitting beside him even slipped notes to him on the table. Finally, Rahul Gandhi twice tried to get up in an attempt during the Q&A in an attempt to end the press conference, finally succeeding at the third attempt. Watch these moments from Rahul Gandhi's press conference in the video above.
