New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday took swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not answering a single question during his first press conference on the completion of five years in office.

"Congratulations Modiji. Excellent Press Conference! Showing up is half the battle. Next time (BJP President Amit) Shah may even allow you to answer a couple of questions. Well done!" Gandhi tweeted.

The Congress leaders remarks came soon after Modi, while addressing a press conference at the party headquarters along with Shah, refused to take questions during his first press conference as the prime minister.

Earlier in the day, as the campaigning ended for the last round of voting for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections due on Sunday, Modi made a statement at the party headquarters here, but then passed the media questions to Shah, who was sitting next to him.

Gandhi, during his press conference also complained to the media persons for asking him tough questions while being soft to the Prime Minister.

Mocking at Modi, Gandhi said, "Modiji has told the country how he eats a mango, how I dress and how i cut my kurta."

"But I have a complain with the media. You ask me tough questions like how the money will come for our NYAY scheme. But you ask Modiji questions like how you eat mango and how you dress," he said.

"Fantastic, Prime Minister of India is fantastic," he said referring to Modi's interview questioning 'cloud cover' theory on the Balakot air strike.
