“While our PM tiptoes around his garden making Yoga videos, India leads Afghanistan, Syria & Saudi Arabia in rape & violence against women. What a shame for our country!,” tweeted Rahul.
The Congress president was referring specifically to a Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of 550 experts, released today, which said India is the most dangerous country in the world to be a woman. The survey ranks India as more dangerous for women than war-torn Afghanistan and Syria, which came in second and third place, respectively.
Rahul was also referring to a video of Modi’s exercise routine, which the PM tweeted a couple of weeks ago, as part of a fitness challenge.
Here’s how the PM described his routine: “Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature – Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises. #HumFitTohIndiaFit”.

Even on the day the PM tweeted his video, Rahul called it “bizarre” and “ridiculous” and clearly indicated he thought it was frivolous on the PM’s part.
“Did you see the PM’s fitness video? It is ridiculous… I mean… It is bizarre… This is bankruptcy,” he said.
