Rahul Gandhi Arrives Late at Congress' Protest Venue, Gets Trolled
'True to his style, Rahul Gandhi obviously woke up late,' BJP's Amit Malviya wrote.

Rahul Gandhi's Congress party is protesting against the Modi government and its failure to hold discussions in Parliament on key issues such as the CBSE paper leak, the multi-crore PNB scam, Cauvery issue, alleged dilution of the SC/ST Act and Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh at Raj Ghat, New Delhi.
The only problem being-- Rahul Gandhi reached the venue late at around 12:45 pm giving Twitter users enough reasons to troll the party leader.

The first to take a dig at Gandhi was BJP IT Cell chief Amit Malviya. "I would love to know which leader says he will embark on a fast and does not reach the venue till 12:45! True to his style, @rahulgandhi obviously woke up late, Malviya wrote.
राहुल जी अगर लंच हो गया हो तो, उपवास पर बैठ जाओ... I would love to know which leader says he will embark on a fast and does not reach the venue till 12:45! True to his style, @rahulgandhi obviously woke up late. #RahulOnAFarce

Rahul Gandhi's fast was supposed to be from 11AM to 4 PM. It is now 12:20 PM and he has not yet arrived at the fast venue. Apparently after having a late breakfast, he is having an early lunch before he has an early tea in evening !

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, What type of Fast is this? if this is a Fast then Many of the Indians fast everyday. Fast was announced for 5 hours and even in this, Rahul Gandhi arrived 2 hours late. He reached at the fast venue at 1:00 PM. Salman's Jail Period was longer than Rahul's Fast

For a 5 hr fast, Rahul Gandhi arrives 2 hrs late. Even Karunanidhi does his trademark breakfast to lunch fast better https://t.co/gW731K8odD

Rahul Gandhi came to 11 am fast at 1pm because he was waiting for an important person to arrive before he left the house and that person was late.
But on the bright side, because of being late, the pizza was free!

Earlier today, Congress leaders were left red-faced when a photo tweeted by a BJP leader Harish Khurana showing Congress leaders hogging chole bhature and other delicacies before the fast itself went viral on the microblogging site.
