Watch: Rahul Gandhi admits that Congress rule produced unemployment, corruption, problems for farmers, etc

The Congress president's flippant attempt to mock Modi sounded more like submission of his own party's past shortcoming.

Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, who has somehow got into the habit of putting his foot into his mouth every time he makes a public appearance this time too lives up to his reputation as he addresses a public rally in Bhiwani, Haryana on Monday.

Trying once again to pull PM Narendra Modi for allegedly outpacing BJP veteran leader LK Advani in 2014, Rahul said that the “boxer” Prime Minister was “supposed to fight unemployment, farmer problems, corruption etc but he instead turned around and punched his coach Advani ji in his face, his team Gadkari ji Jaitley ji, then went into crowd and punched small traders and farmers.”

Interestingly, in his hurry to insult the Prime Minister, Rahul Gandhi ended up admitting to his party’s mess that was inherited by the Modi government.

The Congress president’s flippant attempt to mock Modi sounded more like submission of his own party’s past shortcoming. What could be understood from Rahul’s statement is that when PM Modi came to power in 2014, he had to undertake several problems like unemployment, corruption, farmers issues, which were left unattended by the outbound Congress government.

Rahul Gandhi accidentally throws light on the adverse conditions the Congress party had left the country in before Modi picked up the reins in his hands.

This is not the first time Rahul has used this vile jibe to denounce the PM. Earlier too, while addressing a rally in Maharashtra, Gandhi attacked PM Modi making a veiled reference to allotting of the Gandhinagar seat, which traditionally belonged to senior BJP leader L K Advani, to BJP President Amit Shah for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi said that Narendra Modi hit senior BJP leader L K Advani with shoes and pushed him off the stage.

If this was not disgraceful enough, Rahul was seen repeating the same disgraceful remark the very next day in his Hardiwar rally on April 6.

To put things in perspective, L K Advani, born on November 8, 1927, is 91 years old. In the last five years, he has hardly been involved in active politics. It is only natural for people to retire after decades of active public life and make way for newer faces and leaders.
