Railway Minister Trolled As He Credits Einstein For Discovering Gravity

After Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s announcement on Tuesday that the auto sector slowdown was because of millennials, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has tapped into the same anti-millenial sentiment.

At a meeting for the Board of Trade, the former Finance Minister seems to have gone viral on Twitter after an embarrassing gaffe.

Addressing a question on how India is supposed to become a $5-trillion economy at the current rate, he defended the percentage the economy is supposed to grow at.

“Don’t get into the calculations that you see on television,” Goyal is heard saying in the viral video. “If you look at a $5 trillion-economy, the country will have to grow at 12%, today its growing at 6%-7%, don’t get into those maths,” he adds.

But this wasn’t all. Goyal continued, “…Maths never helped Einstein discover gravity.”

Here’s how the internet gave it back to him
