While addressing a rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna, Congress President Rahul Gandhi today said that Bihar is famous only for unemployment. “Bihar is centre for unemployment,” said the Congress President.

“Do you know what is Bihar a centre for? Unemployment. Bihar is a centre for unemployment. Go to any village in Bihar and ask the youth what they do, you will get the answer that they are not doing anything,” said Rahul Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi’s insult to Biharis did not go down too well with Twitter users who expressed their displeasure over his comments.
Shame that @RahulGandhi labeled Bihar as unemployment center. It was his government in 80’s and then congress supported government of jailed scamster Lalu Yadav that ensure people of Bihar don’t get Job opportunity from Industrialisation and Liberalisation.#RoGaInsultsBihar

Rahul Gandhi : Bihar Berozgaari ka centre hai

Some people even pointed out that Bihar is not a centre for unemployment. After all, former deputy chief minister of the state was a 9th-fail fellow dynast like Rahul Gandhi.
डियर @RahulGandhi जी, बिहार बेरोज़गारी का सेंटर नहि है। हम फ़र्ज़ी डाक्टरों को एम॰पी॰ बनाते हैं। नौंवी फ़ेल लौंडे को उप मुख्यमंत्री और बारहवी फ़ेल लौंडे को स्वास्थ मंत्री।

And some didn’t let this opportunity to mock Rahul Gandhi pass.
Rahul Gandhi Said Bihar is a center of joblessness. Ram Jethmalani once said that he’ll not employ Rahul as a clerk in his office.
It’s just that Rahul Gandhi bade parivar me paida ho gaya warna kabiliyat k hisab se to jindagi bhar berojgaar hi rehta ?? #RoGaInsultsBihar

This is not the first time a Congress leader has insulted Bihar. Earlier, Kamal Nath, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader had insulted people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar by announcing that the incentive for investment will only be put in place once 70% of Madhya Pradesh people get employment. “People from other states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh come here and local people don’t get jobs,” he had said soon after assuming office.
