While Rahul Gandhi has been an unremitting source of humour and mirth for an overwhelming number of people, netizens were particularly amused when the Gandhi scion today posted a tweet saying that on Doctors Day he will be having a conversation with nurses.
“On #DoctorsDay, I am immensely grateful to the dedicated professionals who inspire hope in #Covid19 times. Today at 10 am, watch 4 dedicated nurses in conversation with me about the Covid crisis and how we should react to it,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Soon after Rahul posted the tweet announcing that he will be interacting with nurses on Doctors Day, it elicited oodles of responses from social media users who were quick to highlight the contradiction of having a conversation with nurses on Doctors’ Day.
Netizens mock Rahul Gandhi for interacting with nurses on Doctors’ Day
A Twitter user responded to Rahul Gandhi’s tweet saying that the Wayanad MP no longer makes sense.
On Doctors day Rahul Talks to nurses. Nothing this guy does makes sense.— Its a War with #China (@HemanNamo) July 1, 2020
Another user on the micro-blogging website wondered if Rahul Gandhi has his minds in the right place.
Doctors day but conversation with Nurses. Dimaag Thikaane per hai kya🤩😂🤣— CKMKB (@CKMKB14) July 1, 2020
Another Twitter user shared a popular meme featuring actor Nana Patekar from the Bollywood movie ‘Welcome’ implying that the doctors would have been at relief watching Rahul Gandhi interact with nurses instead of them.
Some Twitter users tried to remind Rahul Gandhi that there is a separate Nurses Day which falls on May 12 when Rahul could have interacted with the nurses instead of making a “fool” of himself by having a conversation with them on Doctors Day.
Nurses Day was on 12 May. You missed it, Rahul. Please don’t do this and make a fool of yourself. https://t.co/dZahl4GbpA— Aishwarya Mudgil (@AishwaryaMudgi1) July 1, 2020
One of the ‘nurses’ was a Congress worker?
Some social media users have claimed that one of the ‘nurses’ selected by Rahul Gandhi to interact with him is actually a Congress worker. Sanjay Mishra, OSD of Tripura CM has claimed that one of the ‘nurses’, a Vipin Krishnan is actually a Congress worker. Popular page Political Kida has shared some images claiming that the particular ‘nurse’ is seen posing with senior Congress leaders and participating in Congress events.
If Mr. Rahul Gandhi sincerely wanted to listen to Nurses or Doctors, he should have invited people not affiliated to the Congress party. Mr. Vipin Krishnan is a regular Congress worker. Mr. Rahul Gandhi always lacks sincerity. pic.twitter.com/th83curlLu— Sanjay Mishra (@sanjayswadesh) July 1, 2020
The Congress prince is famous for his gaffes and is often a favourite of social media uses for his hilarious activities.
