Freudian slip: Embarrassment for ‘united opposition’ at Kolkata rally as Sharad Yadav talks about the Bofors loot

At the rally, which was like a comical consortium of contradictions where the most corrupt and tainted leaders were talking about saving democracy, a Freudian slip had everyone in splits, including Mamata Banerjee.

Mamata Banerjee of the Trinamool Congress has organised a massive show of opposition unity at the “United India” rally being held in Kolkata. Several opposition leaders from various political parties have participated in the rally in the hopes to forge an anti-Modi front. Congress, SP, NCP, TMC and several other parties were present.

At the rally, which was like a comical consortium of contradictions where the most corrupt and tainted leaders were talking about saving democracy, a Freudian slip had everyone in splits, including Mamata Banerjee.

Sharad Yadav of the JD(U) started delivering a speech in the hope to further the same trope that Congress has been harping on for several months. That of the fictitious “scam” in the Rafale deal. However, as is the nature of Freudian slips, the truth could not be hidden for long.

Yadav took to stage and started talking about the Bofors scandal where a money trail had been established and corruption was proved beyond doubt, leading straight up to Rajiv Gandhi himself.

Sharad Yadav said that Bofors was daylight robbery and that while our soldiers laid their lives down at the border, the ruling dispensation had robbed and stole in the Bofors case.

Funnily, while Sharad Yadav thundered away, Derek O’ Brien, the MP from TMC and former quizmaster walked up to Sharad Yadav and whispered the correction in his years, presumably telling Yadav that he was meant to mention Rafale and not Bofors.

Thereafter, clumsily, Yadav blurted out the word “Rafale”.

Later, Mamata Banerjee, the TMC supremo spoke into her mic with a giggle, asserting that what Yadav did was not entirely wrong. Sometimes, we tend to mention “old things”. What he meant was Rafale, Banerjee said.

This Freudian faux pass left Twitter in splits. Several people commented on the hilarity of Sharad Yadav condemning Congress for the Bofors loot while trying to forge an anti-Modi alliance.

With the interesting mix of comical characters, the rainbow coalition is bound to inject such much needed comic relief in the Indian political scene in the run up to 2019 General Elections.
