Congress MP and communications general secretary Jairam Ramesh on Sunday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over latter's roadshow in Delhi on Monday. The Congress leader said PM Modi was 'rattled' by the success of Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra.
"An insecure Prime Minister rattled by the huge success of the Bharat Jodo Yatra has got the BJP to organise a joke of a road show passing through a short distance in the national capital tomorrow. Such hollow, choreographed events will only keep his drum-beaters busy," Jairam Ramesh said in his tweet Sunday evening.
