Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday committed a gaffe while addressing students at the University of California in Berkeley.
Gandhi, who is on a two-week visit to the US to interact with political leaders, global thinkers and overseas Indians, addressed the students of the University of California in Berkeley on ‘India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward’.
While answering a question, he got the number of seats in the Lok Sabha wrong.
Rahul said the number of seats in the Lower House was 546, not 545.
The “miscounted” number had the Twitterati have a field day. Here is how people trolled:
