Home News Reports 'Rahul Gandhi wants to be the PM? My foot!': Senior RJD spokesperson slams 'ally' on National TV

‘Rahul Gandhi wants to be the PM? My foot!’: Senior RJD spokesperson slams ‘ally’ on National TV

While debating on Republic TV yesterday, after the high voltage drama which unfolded in the Parliament, leaving the entire nation in splits of laughter and in a state of bewilderment, the Congress’ allies RJD senior spokesperson, Shankar Charan Tripathi, slammed the ‘Naamdar’ party president, Rahul Gandhi for doing what he did in the Parliament while speaking on the no-confidence motion’. During the debate, Tripathi had also emphatically stated “Rahul Gandhi wants to be the PM? My foot!”.

A portion of that debate has been uploaded by Republic TV on Twitter:

Shankar Charan Tripathi lambasted at Rahul for blatantly lying on a national platform, putting such serious and baseless allegations on the ruling party (concerning the Rafale deal), which fell flat when the defense minister Nirmala Sitaraman, countered the allegations with appropriate documents, saying that this kind of behavior is not expected from a senior parliamentarian like Rahul Gandhi.

He further charged at him saying that it has been proved that he was lying on the floor of the house as the French Government issued a statement which proved that Rahul Gandhi lied.

RJD spokesperson disgusted with Rahul’s attitude said that he can keep on dreaming to become the future Prime Minister, but can never get there. Said in a loathsome manner, “Rahul Gandhi wants to become the PM? my foot”, making it obvious that not only the majority nation but people from within his allies are of the same opinion.

He even went on to say that even though he is an RJD spokesperson, for him the nation comes first and it was laughable that someone like Rahul Gandhi wants to lead it. RJD and Congress are now allies in the ‘united opposition’ and have often displayed substantial camaraderie.

The RJD spokesperson’s stand also came as a surprised because Tejashwi Yadav had tweeted appreciating Rahul’s “fantastic speech”.

With Shankar Charan Tripathi’s stand on national TV, it is evident that even within the united opposition, there seem to be veterans who can’t accept Rahul’s theatrics.

Rahul’s speech, which was laden with lies, was even countered by Vishnu Som, a journalist from NDTV which is widely known to be heavily biased towards the Gandhi family. He took to Twitter to question Rahul’s allegations that the Rafale deal signed by the Modi government was actually a “scam”.

He tweeted, that the Rafale deal was a “scam” because the government was not being able to point out effectively why the deal was not a scam. Vishnu also quoted a detailed article by analyst Abhijit Iyer Mitra that explains just why these Rafales are a far better deal than what the UPA has bargained for and why there is really no ‘scam’ as Rahul Gandhi alleges.

Yesterday, Sumitra Mahajan, the Lok Sabha speaker was also “not pleased” with Rahul Gandhi’s theatrics when he walked across the well of the house to hug PM Narendra Modi, following it with a wink at his fellow Congress MP. She urged the lawmakers to maintain decorum and sanctity of the House, the speaker chastised the party supremo saying, “the manner in which it was done was not right. I didn’t like it too”.

However, Congress loyalist journalists, who claim to be neutral, jumped to this opportunity, disparaging the speaker for rightly disciplining the Congress ‘shehzaada’ for his childish behaviour.
