The story behind viral picture of Piyush Goyal running towards parliament building

Couple of pictures of Union Minister Piyush Goyal running towards the parliament building has gone viral.

On Wednesday morning, a couple of pictures showing a union minister running towards the parliament building were shared with much amusement on the social media. The picture was first shared by a correspondent of CNN-News18 Payal Mehta, who asked readers to guess the minister in the pic.


It turned out to be very easy guess for most readers, thanks to the getup of the minister and ‘bullet train’ hint. Netizens could recognise that it was Union Minister Piyush Goyal, who currently holds the dual portfolios of Railways and Commerce.

Goyal appears to be in a hurry to go inside the parliament even as media persons around him are hoping to catch a glimpse or get some sound-byte from him. But why was he in such a hurry?

It has turned out that the Minister did not want to be late for Question Hour in the Lok Sabha and he can be seen holding papers that presumably has the relevant information related to the questions that have been put to him by other members of the parliament.

The reason why Goyal had to hurry was because he was attending a cabinet meeting in the morning. As soon as the cabinet meeting got over, he rushed to be on time to answer questions in the parliament.

Full marks for fitness and punctuality!
