New Delhi: In the wake of Gujarat Chief Minister’s September 5 remark that ‘UPA's publicised tablet Akash hasn't taken off the ground’, Union Cabinet Minister Kapil Sibal has gifted version-2 of Aakash tablet to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

The Minister said, "Woh toh Paataal mein rahte hain, humne unke haath mein Akash (Tablet) de diya hai" (He stays in netherworld, I have given Akash in his hand).

Earlier, Modi had said, “Kash (If only) this Aakash tablet could land on earth, then the lie (promise of free laptops by state Congress) they (Congress) are spreading now would hold some weight.”
