Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has picked on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not holding a press conference during his tenure of over 1,000 days and suggested he should try addressing reporters as it is fun to be asked questions.

Gandhi also tagged photographs from his press conference in Hyderabad on Wednesday to put his point across.

“Dear Mr Modi, Now that campaigning is over, hope you can spare some time for your part-time job as PM. Btw its been 1,654 days since u became PM. Still no press conference?” he tweeted on Wednesday.

“Some pics from our Hyderabad PC today. Try one someday, it’s fun having questions thrown at you!”
