6 controversial statements by Rahul Gandhi
Indian National Congress president Rahul Gandhi never create a headline for the good reason whether it’s his bad luck or inability to express the feelings in a positive way; no one knows why it happens on a regular basis. Though it’s clear that he is not the right person in the politics or say he doesn’t have any interest, but forced to stay here due to his family influence. And even his opposition always make fun of him during the election campaign by saying that wherever he goes, Congress loses for sure and whether it’s a coincidence or not but he was absent during the Punjab election. Surprisingly Congress won there during 2017 election but failed miserably in UP where he was campaigning for the party. Though the article’s intention is not to make fun of anyone still we are mentioning about some of the statement he made that ultimately sparked controversy or create fun of him. Here are 6 controversial statements by Rahul Gandhi.
During 2013, he made a serious allegation regarding the national security despite knowing the fact that his own party Indian National Congress is in the power. In a rally, he said that ISI is trying to contact young Muslim men affected in Muzaffarnagar communal riots and he got the information from Intelligence Bureau officers. That statement made a huge controversy where not only BJP but also Congress alliance parties criticized him for his ignorant remark. As he was not the person whom IB should report during the UPA tenure, the comment became part of the discussion, and the BJP demanded that he should disclose the officer name who informed him regarding this.
Poverty is a state of mind
Whether intentionally or due to immaturity, again he sparked controversy through his statement, and this time he mocked the poverty that again didn’t go well. The political opponents BJP didn’t leave a stone unturned to criticize him, and they continued their criticism in the TV debates and social media.
Congress is a funny party
Yes, he actually said it. He said despite being the largest political party in the world it doesn’t have rules and regulation. Every two minutes they create rules and then dump them and nobody knows the rules of the party he said at the All India Congress Committee session in Jaipur.
One percent terror attack
No one knows if he speaks his heart or something wrong with his speechwriter, he always makes wrong and irresponsible statements even though on national security. During his interaction with journalists at Bhubaneswar, he said that his party will stop 99 percent of terror attacks once they come to power, though one percent may happen.
It seems that he is unstoppable and especially during the election time and makes serial comments that become not only a headache for the opposition but also for his own party. On his Germany trip, he made a statement that due to unemployment people are joining ISIS and it started in 2003 after the Iraq invasion. He did not stop there and also said that the lynchings happen in India is due to the unemployment.
Compare Muslim Brotherhood with RSS
Though RSS is their political opponents as it has linked with BJP, however, this time he crossed the limit again as he compared it with a banned terrorist organization. RSS is doing charitable work at every corner of the nation and is appreciated by many from Jawahar Lal Nehru to Jaya Prakash Narayan, Zakir Hussein and many more and is taking part in cultural events. On the other side, the Muslim Brotherhood is banned by many countries including some Islamic Countries.
