Sagarika Ghose abuses an author who asked Rahul Gandhi a tough question in Singapore

Congress President Rahul Gandhi somewhat looked like making a fool of himself in Singapore, while having a panel discussion at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy on Thursday. Apart from making odd statements about connecting all MRI machines, he was also seen counter questioning the audience to possibly try and avoid answering them. Since the panel interview also involved the audience interacting with Rahul, it saw some of the attendees asking tough questions to the Congress President, which of all people, angered controversial journalist Sagarika Ghose.

The person in question Prasenjit K. Basu posed a question to Rahul asking him why did India’s per capita income grow slower as compared to the world when “his family” was in power. He followed it up by asking why did the per capita income see a much faster growth soon after Rahul’s family relinquished the Prime Ministerial position of the country.

A video of the exchange was tweeted by netizen Vivek Shetty:

As seen above, rather than properly answering the question, Rahul proceeded to ask a condescending counter question. When Mr Basu later schooled Rahul on economic principles, it was met with an uneasy attempt on part of the dynast to come up with an answer.

Later the official Twitter account of the Congress party decided to put out an edited video to cut short Mr Basu and Rahul’s exchange to possibly mitigate the embarrassment of their leader. This was strongly objected to by Mr. Basu, who even threatened legal action for the same.

With Rahul’s gaffes going viral on social media, a spokesperson for the party too decided to start damage control by predictably taking refuge under the garb of liberalism:

Even though Sanjay Jha had merely sung Rahul Gandhi’s praises, Sagarika Ghose decided to use it as a plank to launch an abusive, elitist and anti-Hindu tirade against Mr Basu:

Such an act of Sagarika which also involved deriding the Hindu epic Ramayana, predictably drew out reactions from people:

Such a slave like response by Ms Ghose might shed the light on the operating procedure of the so-called neutral journalists, who are seen going to extreme extents in a bid to maintain their and their “master’s” hegemony, all under the garb of neutrality, liberalism and political correctness. But when such tactics don’t work, they are seen shedding their masks and exposing their deep contempt for the Hindu culture and the beliefs of the masses.
