By now it is a well established fact that Rahul Gandhi’s public rallies are nothing but source of entertainment in an otherwise gloomy world. Joining the long list of facepalm moments is from Sunday, 24th January, 2021 when the Wayanad MP was addressing a rally in Tamil Nadu’s Dharapuram.
#WATCH | We’ll not allow Narendra Modi to destroy the foundation of India…He doesn’t understand that only Tamil people can decide the future of Tamil Nadu. ‘Knickerwallahs’ from Nagpur can never ever decide future of the state: Congress’ Rahul Gandhi in Dharapuram, Tamil Nadu pic.twitter.com/KFDaXKeTMG— ANI (@ANI) January 24, 2021
At around 56 seconds in above video, Rahul Gandhi takes a jibe at the RSS, headquartered in Nagpur, Maharashtra. “Knickerwalas from Nagpur can never decide future of the state,” he proclaims. Except, the translator perhaps got confused and said that the ‘liquor merchants’ from Nagpur can never decide the future of the state.
The same was pointed out by many netizens.

Unfazed, Rahul Gandhi continues his zero-sense monologue.
Rahul Gandhi’s translator in Erode faints
Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi had addressed a rally in Erode, Tamil Nadu. The senior Congress leader had suggested that if India’s farmers, workers and labourers were strong, India would not need to deploy army, navy and air force at borders, especially at Indo-China border. He had claimed that if the farmers and labourers were protected and empowered, China would not dare to intrude into Indian territories.
Soon after translating this speech, 35-year-old Muhammed Imran, a professor, who was seen passionately translating Rahul Gandhi’s pearls of wisdom, fainted. He has been taken to a nearby hospital.
