After a teleprompter malfunction during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at the World Economic Forum’s Davos summit, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday tweeted: “Even the teleprompter could not take so many lies.”
On Monday, PM Modi addressed an online summit of the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda on the first day of the five-day event. He has joined a host of other global leaders who will share their visions for the state of the world in 2022.
During his address at the summit, his teleprompter was malfunctioned, seemingly caught PM Modi off guard and he had to stop midway while talking. The incident is continuously trending number 1 on Twitter, since then.
Netizens also shared an old video clip of the Rahul Gandhi where he is heard telling to mediapersons that, “Narendra Modi cannot speak on his own. He reads from a teleprompter that is operated by a controller.”
Prime Minister Modi, during his special address at the Davos Agenda summit, outlined the reforms implemented by his administration to address the country’s retrospective taxation problem.
He also alluded his government’s asset monetisation efforts and large-scale infrastructure projects underway in India.
