New Delhi:

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his yoga videos and accused him of ignorance towards the surging number of crimes against women in India.

"While our PM tiptoes around his garden making Yoga videos, India leads Afghanistan, Syria & Saudi Arabia in rape & violence against women. What a shame for our country!" Rahul tweeted.

The Gandhi scion's statement came after a survey released by Thomson Reuters Foundation on Tuesday showed that India is the most dangerous country in the world for women. Even the war-torn Afghanistan and Syria are better when it comes to the matter of safety for women.

"Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature - Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, Aakash. This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises. #HumFitTohIndiaFit," Modi captioned the video.
