A video on YouTube shows the Congress leader, Jairam Ramesh inviting Narendra Modi to join the Congress party and the response from the people's Prime Minister is winning hearts on the social media.

PC Vishnunath, party leader from Kerala, described Modi as "Narendra Damodardas Tuglak" and added "we can not allow Hitler and Mussolini in India". Addressing the gathering at the Jan Vedna Sammelan in Delhi, Gandhi accused Modi of "breaking the economy's backbone with the ruse of demonetisation". First, a major function was organised in absence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and secondly Congress chose the death anniversary of late Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri as the day to organise the function.

Attacking the Prime Minister's various schemes, Rahul said: "The PM can do yoga very well, but have you noticed he cannot do the padmasana (lotus position)?"

He said that the philosophy of fear being promoted by the BJP and the RSS was aimed at snatching the rights of the poor. He also said that Congress did not once interfere in the functioning of the Reserve Bank of India. He is quick to tell that the Congress is not lying when they say they will not try to topple the government because they are too busy trying to put the Third Front out of existence and win their votes back.

He also turned to media with witty smile on his face.

In 2015, however, the NYTimes released a new version of its Chinese-language app that was able to circumvent China's firewall. Investors pay close attention to the performance of the App Store , as Apple now emphasizes its role as a services company.

Satirising an Amitabh Bachchan song from the movie Namak Halal, he hit out at the Prime Minister saying, "Aapka toh lagta hain bas yehi sapna, Ram-nam japna, garibo ka maal aapna".

However, what could still worry Congress supporters and die-hard Nehru-Gandhi family loyalists is that he stopped short of declaring himself as the Prime Minister of India in 2019. Things have gone from bad to worse, but the worse is yet to come.

Taking a dig at the PM over his initiatives like Swachh Bharat, digital India and Make in India, Rahul asked him to 'spend some time with pooor'.

Senior Congress leader and former Finanace Minister P Chidambaram, in his remarks claimed that even union ministers were kept in dark on the decision and that the move had cost the country a loss of around Rs 1.5 lakh crore.
