Six excuses given by Congress and friends to save ‘sleeping’ Rahul Gandhi

The life of a “youth icon” can be hard. Work hard(ly), party harder, and the result is catching up with sleep at any possible time. Of course Rahul Gandhi is no youth icon anymore, being on the wrong side of 40 years, so the above doesn’t apply to him. But such debates may arise because if media is to be believed, Rahul Gandhi was caught sleeping in the Lok Sabha.

Almost exactly 2 years back as well, the crown prince was caught dozing off in the Lok Sabha, in the midst of a debate. One would imagine he would have realised he needs to wake up and smell the coffee but apparently he has been caught napping again.

This time the media claimed to have caught him “sleeping” during a debate in the Lok Sabha on the issue of atrocities on Dalits. Ironically the same Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to visit Una, the place where Dalits were allegedly thrashed, to show “solidarity” with them.

“sleeping”

While the video of Rahul “sleeping” was itself not enough to pronounce him guilty, members and supporters of the Congress party were seen getting all tongue tied in explaining what Rahul Gandhi was doing. By the end of the day, we had six different explanations for what Rahul Gandhi was doing:

1. Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary: “How can anyone sleep in so much noise? When we go in to the cold atmosphere of the Lok Sabha from so much heat outside, we close our eyes to provide relief to our burning eyes, so that some moisture soothes the eyes”

2. Vadra family member Tehseen Poonawala: “Rahul is into meditation and using a breathing and listening technique”

3. Congress leader Oscar Fernandes: “If an MP gets tired he would like to relax. Nobody does this deliberately”

4. Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi: “Rahul wasn’t sleeping, seeing a cell phone isn’t a crime”

5. Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary (again): “Rahul wasnt sleeping, his eyes were downcast, he was looking down at something in his lap”

6. Congress sypathiser appearing often on TV debates, Sanjay Hegde: No problem in sleeping, even I sleep in courts

And a bonus, from some guy who is said to be a “Political analyst”:

While only Rahul Gandhi knows what he was really doing, his sycophantic fans and followers have made it even tougher for him to explain.
