Congress has now proven itself to be the mothership of embarrassing gaffes for itself and a source of constant entertainment for the public.
Today, just as Rahul Gandhi was “protesting” the CBI fracas that the Supreme Court has already commented upon, Randeep Surjewala proceeded to tell the world that Rahul Gandhi had been arrested while he had only been detained.
However, the fact that Rahul Gandhi was protesting needlessly and Randeep Surjwala was lying through his tweet wasn’t the only thing that happened today.
One Congress karyakarta valiantly decided to look dumber, presumably, to make Rahul Gandhi look smarter.
During the “protest rally” today, while one karyakarta was talking to the media about Rahul Gandhi’s stupendous leadership skills, two others started sloganeering in the background.
One karyakarta suddenly screamed “gali gali main shor hai”. The hope was, that the other karyakarta would jump in and say “Narendra Modi chor hai”. The assumption is, of course, based on the fact that Rahul Gandhi has been going to town calling the Prime Minister a thief baselessly and that his party workers would also follow suit.
However, something remarkably hilarious happened next. Just as the first karyakarta yelled “gali gali main shor hai”, the second enthusiastic Congress worker, in all his enthusiasm, ended up saying “Rahul Gandhi chor hai”.
Gali Gali Shor Hai
Rahul Gandhi Chor Hai

One can see the karyakarta who called Rahul Gandhi a thief later bite his tongue knowing fully well that he had just called his master a thief on live television.
One can’t blame the karyakarta considering Rahul Gandhi has made far more embarrassing gaffes on national television and international platforms. One recalls how Rahul Gandhi had called Congress an “NRI movement” while speaking in the USA or how more recently, Rahul thought Amit Shah calling India a ‘golden bird’ means he is treating the country like a commodity.
The list of gaffes by Rahul Gandhi, Congress and all their social media accounts are endless. This one, however, certainly infused a dose of laughter just as people were getting sick of Congress’ theatrics.
