Rahul Gandhi, the Richie Rich of Indian politics

Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been in a campaign mode for the upcoming Karnataka election campaign, where he famously committed a few gaffes like failing to pronounce the name of legendary Indian Engineer M Visvesvaraya and a popular Kannada verse.

Embarrassment again came back to haunt him yesterday, when BJP Delhi’s spokesperson produced a video which footage which purportedly showed lack of crowds during his roadshow in the state.

Rahul then seems to have decided to take a break from the “hectic” campaigning process and tweeted a photo of him enjoying an Ice Cream at a Bangalore joint. But rather than quietly enjoying it, he decided to convert it into a photo-op:

After tweeting about the Ice Cream parlour, Rahul heaped glowing praises on its serving quality, staff and owner. But incidentally, to the possible misfortune of the Congress President, many netizens noticed an irony in the name of the parlour:

The ice-cream parlour was incidentally named after the popular cartoon character Richie Rich, whose life many considered was similar to that of Rahul Gandhi. The character sketch of Richie Rich depicts a very affluent kid born to extremely wealthy parents, whose net worth stems from his parent’s inheritance.

Such ironies weren’t lost on people who proceeded to express their hilarity:

What makes things even funnier are the other similarities between Richie Rich and Rahul Gandhi. Richie Rich is known to have a pet dog named Dollarmatian, and Rahul too has famously introduced his dog Pidi to the world. Richie Rich is also known to have a very loyal and all serving butler named Cadbury, which might lead people to draw parallels with some leaders in the Congress party.
