Congress justifies Rahul Gandhi’s disrespectful conduct, says he was on phone during President’s speech looking for meaning of Hindi words

When Sonia Gandhi was thumping the desk along with other MPs when the president mentioned the surgical strikes, Rahul Gandhi didn’t do it, and it seemed that he was trying to stop his mother from doing so.

Rahul Gandhi on Thursday displayed disrespect for the President of India by using his phone and speaking in the Parliament during President Ram Nath Kovind’s speech addressing the joint session of the Lok Sabha.

Seemingly, such unpleasantry coming from the head of the grand old party wasn’t enough for the day, that now the party has come out to defend their chieftains sassiness.

Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma refuting the charges on the Congress president of being disrespectful, said, “He was listening to what was important, there were certain queries about certain Hindi words which were not heard clearly. There was no disrespect on his part. I think it is very frivolous of the party to make such a comment. If the footage is taken half of the BJP president will be seen talking to each other.”

Moreover, following his party’s trajectory, Sharma went on to say that the President’s speech was not of much significance to Congress. “Today’s speech by the President in the parliament just repeats the government’s announcements until now. We don’t think it is important to give today’s speech much significance,” he said.

Earlier in the day, during the entire presidential speech which was telecast live by Lok Sabha TV and several other News channels, Rahul Gandhi was seen busy with his mobile phone several times.

The Congress president was sitting beside his mother Sonia Gandhi, and at least once Sonia Gandhi was seen asking him to be attentive. In another incident when Sonia Gandhi was thumping the desk along with other MPs when the president mentioned the surgical strikes, Rahul Gandhi didn’t do it, and it seemed that he was trying to stop his mother from doing so.
