Unlike PM, will have many more press conferences: Rahul Gandhi
Congress President Rahul Gandhi today criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not interacting with the press.
Rahul Gandhi, who held a press conference in Bengaluru, wrote on Twitter that he enjoyed meeting the regional and national press in Bengaluru and that unlike PM Modi who had not held a press conference in four years, he would be doing "many more of these".
"Enjoyed meeting the regional and national press today in Bengaluru. We had a packed house! I’m sorry not everyone got a chance to ask a question due to the paucity of time. But, unlike our PM who hasn’t had a press conference in 4 yrs, I will be doing many more of these!," wrote the Congress president on Twitter.

Asked at an event in Bengaluru if he harboured prime ministerial ambitions, the Congress chief said on Tuesday, "Yes, why not", if his party emerged as the single-largest party in 2019 general elections.
The Congress president, who has been busy campaigning in Karnataka ahead of the Assembly elections on May 12 has attacked the BJP over alleged corruption, not doing enough for Dalits, the party's manifesto, personal slandering and issue-less campaign by PM Modi.
Apart from hitting the campaign trail, the Congress president has also used social media to target PM Modi and the BJP.
