Congress friendly media is cute. In what appears to be the ‘fax’ moment for Congress leaders and Congress-friendly media, journalist Pallavi Ghosh took it upon herself to convey it to Congress candidate from Nathdwara, Rajasthan, CP Joshi that Congress President Rahul Gandhi is upset with his comments and wants him to “express regret”.

CP Joshi, while addressing an election rally in Nathdwara had made a casteist comment on PM Modi suggesting that only people belonging to the Brahmin caste have the rights and knowledge to talk about Hinduism.

After much outrage on social media, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to condemn Joshi’s statement. At 10:39 am, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that Party leaders should refrain from making comments which could hurt any community in the society.

Three minutes later, Pallavi Ghosh announced that Rahul Gandhi has stepped in to condemn CP Joshi.

She even went on to cite sources who said that senior Congress leaders had conveyed it to Rahul Gandhi that Joshi’s statements may damage the party headed by a Janeu-dhaari Brahmin. She even complimented Rahul Gandhi of showing courage to pull up their erring colleague in public.

After all, any such statements could damage to the dynasty, and in turn the party. Notice how Ghosh feels that such remarks ‘damage the party’ and not the society at large?

Then, as if on cue, at 11:01, 20 minutes after party chief had ‘pulled up erring colleague in public’, Ghosh, too pulled up Joshi in public. She conveyed it to CP Joshi that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has asked him to express regret.

Joshi, too, following instructions immediately, within 8 minutes of Ghosh’s tweet, expressed regret.

Pallavi Ghosh has earlier quite a few times answered curious questions on behalf of Rahul Gandhi and Congress. Like, she knew the criteria for inviting the ‘women journalists’ for a closed-door, off the record interaction with Rahul Gandhi in July this year. Amidst all the fawning over Rahul Gandhi, she often cites ‘sources’ for the things which Rahul Gandhi has planned to do, like more hugs.

Pallavi Ghosh had also come to Congress IT cell head Divya Spandana’s rescue when the latter had a Twitter meltdown recently over an image of PM Modi she tweeted. In the tweet, Divya had compared PM Modi with a bird dropping, but Ghosh’s source (it is always a source, hmm) had clarified that Divya didn’t mean the PM. And when she could not fawn any more over Rahul, she showers her praises for Priyanka Vadra, his sister, crediting Priyanka for his ‘rare form’.
