Dear Rahul Gandhi, at least try not be your immature self at international level

The President of the Indian National Congress, Rahul Gandhi, has consistently displayed lack of maturity that is required for a person who aspires to lead a nation-state and today was no different. Rahul Gandhi, who’s still a Youth Leader at 47 years of age, decided to take a dig at Narendra Modi over the tensions between India and China over Doklam.

After repeated clarifications from the Ministry of External Affairs that there were no change in the status quo of Doklam and saying that media reports suggesting the contrary are “mischevous”, Rahul Gandhi decided it was a good idea to take potshots at the Prime Minister of the country over the same issue. That the President of the Congress party refuses to believe the government of his own country and chooses instead to further the narrative of a rival nation is a deep cause for concern.

Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time that Rahul Gandhi has reacted in an undignified fashion over India’s relationship with other countries. When the President of the United State of America, Donald Trump, had tweeted about developing much better relations with Pakistan, Rahul Gandhi mocked Narendra Modi for hugging Donald Trump during his visit to Washington.

The snide remark has come back to haunt Rahul Gandhi as recently, the USA has suspended its security assistance to Pakistan, which is expected to be worth over a billion dollars. However, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi has shown no signs of embarrassment whatsoever.

The official twitter handle of the Congress Party, with the approval of its President one would expect, recently tweeted a repugnant video featuring Narendra Modi’s hugs with World Leaders to downplay the historic visit of the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. Despite Rahul Gandhi’s childish attempt at criticizing Narendra Modi’s foreign policy, India continues to grow in stature under the NDA government. And despite spending years and years in Politics, Rahul Gandhi seems to be blissfully unaware of what’s staring at him in the eye.

However, the most ridiculous and downright appalling of his comments came after the Surgical Strikes carried out by the Army against Pakistani in their own soil. Instead of congratulating the government on the grit it displayed in unleashing the might of our Army, Rahul Gandhi tried to be smart and score political points against Narendra Modi by accusing him of doing ‘Khoon ki Dalaali‘.

Of course, his party had to pay the price for his horrendous remarks as they were completely routed in the Uttar Pradesh elections.

One would have expected Rahul Gandhi to learn from his mistakes and come up with a constructive strategy to take on Narendra Modi. However, thus far, his only strategy seems to consist of inane remarks on Twitter and fomenting caste tensions across India. His latest antics where he suggests that the government has betrayed the interests of the nation at Doklam is another gross instance where he has unwittingly, or perhaps not quiet so, undermined the interests of the nation for the sake of partisan politics.

People close to him should perhaps let him know, if you are planning to win elections in India, undermining the interests of the country in a bid to defeat your rival is perhaps not the smartest course of action.

If Rahul Gandhi wants to truly come across as a potential alternative to Narendra Modi, it is high time he quits his juvenile antics on Social Media. And perhaps he should remember, that turning anti India in his unbridled hate for Narendra Modi isn’t helping his never-took-off-perhaps-never-will-take-off political career. Unfunny childish wordplay has never won anyone any election in the history of Democratic politics and its unlikely that the Gods will be kind enough to make an exception for Mr. Gandhi.
