The media reports on Wednesday evening claimed that the Prime Minister would hold a press conference on April 26 in Varanasi. Following which, Congress took swipe at the BJP minutes after the ruling saffron party denied the media reports of Prime Minister Narendra Modi holding a press conference in Varanasi. Mocking their main rival, Congress took to Twitter with a popular one-liner: "Tum se na ho payega (you will no be able to do it)".
However, later BJP clarified that there is no press conference scheduled either on Thursday or Friday.
The Congress re-tweeted a media report and said "Tum se na ho payega" along with a hashtag #FekuModi. Reportedly, PM Modi is scheduled to visit Varanasi from April 25-26 to file his nomination.
Meanwhile, Congress president Rahul Gandhi has repeatedly attacked PM Modi, saying that he is "scared" to face a press conference.
After releasing the Congress' manifesto on April 2, Rahul Gandhi had asked media to question Prime Minister Modi as to why he is "scared of facing a press conference".
"You ask me questions, but you are scared of him. Ask him 'Mr Prime Minister why are you scared of the people of India, why are you scared of the press'...We will defeat him in the polls," Gandhi had said.
