Rahul Gandhi made a no-holds-barred attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the University of California, Berkeley, on Tuesday morning.

And while his speech -- India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward -- got a large amount of traction, it was also remembered for other not-so-good reasons.

For one thing, Gandhi added to his long list of gaffes. 

Gandhi was answering a question when he said India's lower house of Parliament -- the Lok Sabha -- has 546 seats. 

Twitter was quick to point out the correct answer is actually 545. 


Gandhi has made a number of gaffes before, all of which almost immediately make it to social media. 

Interestingly, Gandhi's great-grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru had -- as prime minister -- also addressed the University of California, Berkley, in 1949.

And on Tuesday, Rahul said he was ready to be a prime ministerial candidate.
