After Rahul Gandhi shows off his torn Kurta, activist buys him a new one

Rahul Gandhi seems to be having somewhat of a hard time since demonetization after he had to first queue up at a SBI branch in Delhi  to exchange Rs 4000 and on 18th January showed off his torn Kurta at a rally in Uttarakhand:


First Rahul Gandhi stated that his Kurta was torn and then proceeded to provide proof for the same, by driving his hand through the hole and out.  Also during his Kurta torn speech Rahul had attacked Modi by claiming that one would never see him(Modi) wearing a torn Kurta even though he indulges in the politics of “poor people” and of those who wear torn clothes. This statement of putting out an analogy between torn clothes and poor people might itself reek of snobbery.

Moved by the plight of Rahul Gandhi, Editor of NAMO Patrika and well known Twitter Celebrity, Tajendar Bagga today ordered a new Kurta for him.

The Kurta would be delivered at Rahul Gandhi’s residence by 30th January so Rahul Baba might have to make do with his torn one for a few days. And to make it clear the whole amount for the ‘Royal’ Kurta has been paid for by Mr Bagga including the Rs 169 shipping fee.

Like Mr Bagga, there have been other good Samaritans who have helped out Mr Rahul Gandhi during his time of need. In one case a man from Gaziabad sent Rahul Rs 100 so that he could fix his Kurta and in another case BJP Yuv Morcha workers ended up sending him a new piece.

We recently published an op-ed about why Rahul Gandhi would continue to copy Kejriwal’s antics. And this Kurta drama could be inspired by incidents of Kejriwal wearing torn cloths at rallies in order to project his “ordinary (aam) status”.
