Mumbai: Maharashtra BJP Chief Chandrakant Patil has been in the news since Monday morning after his claim on PM Modi’s sleeping schedule went viral. While addressing BJP workers in Kolhapur ahead of the Kolhapur north Assembly bypoll, Mr Patil claimed Narendra Modi sleeps for only two hours every day and is doing an experiment so that he will not have to sleep and can work for the country for 24 hours.
However, after his video went viral, many social media users have been noticing another BJP leader sitting next to Mr Patil on stage. Former MP from Kolhapur, Dhananjay Mahadik, was present on the stage when Mr Patil made aforementioned comments. Mr Mahadik, it seems, could not contain his embarrassment over the claim made by Mr Patil. As Mr Patil talks about PM Modi sleeping for 2 hours, Mr Mahadik breaks into a sheepish smile, and then facepalms, perhaps to hide his smile from workers listening to Mr Patil’s speech.
Congress leader Sachin Sawant, tweeting the video, put up a text over Mr Mahadik in the video saying: “Look at him carefully”.
Here’s the video:
Mr Patil, heaping praise at PM Modi, had said: “PM Modi sleeps for only two hours and works for 22 hours every day. “
“He is experimenting now so that he need not have to sleep,” Patil claimed, adding the prime minister “works every minute” for the country. Patil said that Modi is trying to prevent sleep so that he can stay awake for 24 hours and work for the country. “He doesn’t waste a single minute,” he added.
