Congress leader Renuka Chodhury came in defence of Rahul Gandhi by saying that the Vice President was not sleeping; he was just resting his eyes.
BJP leader Thawarchand Gehlot, also sharpens his attacks on Rahul Gandhi and said: “We have been saying that they are not serious about issues related to Dalits and their welfare. They are raising this issue only to draw political mileage. And this episode proves this.”
