At almost 50, Congress President Rahul Gandhi is still considered ‘Youth leader’. Not that I’m an ageist, but I’m sure Congress has leaders other than someone from the Nehru-Gandhi family, younger than Rahul, who could be propped up as a ‘leader’. With no leadership quality to showcase except for having been born in ‘The Family’, Rahul Gandhi has not aged. And if Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia is to be believed, Rahul isn’t the only Peter Pan we have.
Scindia believes that if population increases by 24% in 10 years, how can the number of voters increase by 40%? That he thinks an increase in population is linear, despite having studied economics at Harvard, is baffling. The logic is so brilliant, I have to wear glares to shield my eyes from all the shine it is spreading.
Soon people tried to point out the logical fallacies.
Scindia ji, Assume 10 yrs ago the population was 100 people. Out of which there were 50 kids who were betweeb 8-18 yrs old. Now the population grew by 24% and became 124. But now there are 50 18yr old guys who can vote. Thoda dimaag lagaaiye

Some even questioned his degree in Economics from Harvard.
U Can’t Compare Population Rise Over Last 10 Yrs With Voter Rise
Example: Even If Population Rise For Next 10 Years Remain 0%, There Will Be New Voters Added To The List Every Year As Soon As They Cross 18 Yrs.

And some questioned whether the company of people he is keeping these days rubbing off him.
@JM_Scindia there can be people who came back home and registered. then there is a population who reached age of 18 years which means born 8 years before the time you are mentioning. boss have u really studied in Harvard or it is the issue of the company you are keeping

Or maybe it is a collective effort by all Congress leaders and supporters to make Rahul Gandhi look smarter. After all, the only way to make a short line appear longer is to draw a shorter line right next to it.
Perhaps we could send Scindia to attend the same school as Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi so both could learn mathematics before they attempt any such ridiculous equations in future.
