Rahul Gandhi is back and how: After ‘pichatees’, watch him inventing another number to talk about MSP paid to farmers

Gandhi said, "Sarkar kisano ka dhaan Dhai Hazaar Panch Sau me kharidti hai (The government buys farmers' produce at 2500 500)."

The former Congress party president has added yet another gem in his series of hilarious gaffes. This time around, while addressing an election rally in Jharkhand, the Gandhi scion conjured up a new mathematical numeral-‘Dhai Hazaar Panch Sau’.


Talking at the rally, Gandhi said, “Sarkar kisano ka dhaan dhai hazaar panch sau me kharidti hai (The government buys farmers’ produce at Rs 2500 500).” The Wayanad MP was listing the down the MSP price apparently offered to the farmers by the Congress government in the nearby Chhatisgarh state when he coined a never before heard number. Before long, the short clip of Rahul’s gaffe started doing the rounds on the Internet.

“There is only one state which offers the right price to the farmers. It is Chhatisgarh. Before the elections, we had promised that we will raise the MSP to 2500 per quintal. After coming to power we did it. The farmers in Chhatisgarh get Rs 2500 per quintal for their produce. The government provides 2500 500 per quintal to the farmers,” Gandhi said.

It is interesting to note that initially he had said the correct figure, two thousand five hundred, but being himself, he invented the new number just a moment later.

This is not the first time that the former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has regaled his audience and listeners with his unintended humour. Last year, Rahul Gandhi invented another numeral-“pichatees” while slamming the BJP government for the rising unemployment figures.

The list of gaffes committed by Rahul Gandhi is endless. During the campaigning for Karnataka polls in 2018, Gandhi stuttered repeatedly while pronouncing the word ‘Visvesvaraya’.

One of the famous goof-ups happened in January 2013 while Rahul was addressing the AICC plenary, shortly after becoming the vice president of the party. Speaking at the plenary, Rahul mixed up day with night saying, “This morning I got up at night, 4 o’clock in the morning I got out into the balcony I thought- you have a big responsibility in front of you and these people are standing behind you, people are standing on your side.”

The list of Rahul Gandhi’s problems with numbers is endless. During the 2019 Lok Sabha election campaigns, the then Congress president had given different numbers about their promised NYAY scheme at different rallies. Although the proposal had promised ₹72,000 per year, Rahul Gandhi had promised ₹72,000 per month in one place, while had promised a whopping ₹72,000 crore per year in another place.
