Rahul Gandhi doesn’t seem to understand that parliament is a serious discussion place and yet again he has been caught sleeping. Some Congress leaders told reporters that the 46-year-old was checking his inbox. “It’s not a crime to check a cell phone,” said Abhishek Manu Singhvi.
On the other hand, Congress parliamentarian Renuka Chowdhury blamed the weather. “It is hot outside, so people usually go inside the parliament which has to air-condition and therefore close their eyes to relax,” she said. “Can anyone sleep in this noise?” she challenged. It’s apparently not impossible – Mr. Gandhi was caught in similar circumstances in 2014 amid a discussion on inflation and escalating food prices.
