Video: ‘Indians like Monkeys’ says Sam Pitroda, Rahul Gandhi’s top advisor

Pitroda was also in the news recently for casting doubts on the Balakot airstrikes and downplaying the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

Congress’ Sam Pitroda seems to be on a slandering spree. After first casting doubts on the Balakot airstrikes and then calling the middle class ‘selfish’ for being unwilling to pay more taxes, he now calls Indians using mobile phones as ‘monkeys playing with a new toy’.

In a video clip shared by Republic TV, Pitroda, Rahul Gandhi’s top adviser and long-time Congress loyalist is seen saying that Indians are not using connectivity effectively.

Pitroda says, ” Indians are not using connectivity effectively. But you know it’s world over today, this is a new toy. So all of a sudden every monkey you have is given a new toy and they are fiddling with it. Okay. They don’t know what to do with it yet. I think it will take 5-10 years to figure out that you can do a lot more with it than you are doing now. Today, it is entertainment, you know, gossip lies. Lies get amplified on social media.”

Pitroda’s comments have created strong reactions on social media.

Pitroda had also tried to downplay the 26/11 Mumbai attacks recently. He had stated just because 8 people came and did something, you cannot blame an entire nation(Pakistan) for it.

Pitroda had recently also tried to defend Rahul Gandhi’s proposed NYAY scheme and also said that even though taxes will have to be raised, the middle class should not be selfish and have a big heart. He had stated that to help the poor, the middle class should be ready to pay more taxes to fund the scheme.
