Rahul Gandhi can’t seem to curb his immaturity, even when paying a condolence visit.
The Congress scion was paying a visit to Sonped village in Haryana, post the horrific incident, where two children of a Dalit family had been burnt alive.
It was a time to hear the bereaved speak.
Instead, Rahul got into the limelight in the worst possible way.
He not only snapped at an India Today TV journalist who was speaking to the family of the victims—at the time he wanted to speak to them—he got angry when someone asked him if he had come for a photo-op.
Yes, it was an insensitive question. But surely Rahul should: a) have a thicker skin by now and b) also know that such questions are asked to get the desired sound bytes.
If he doesn’t know by this by now, he remains a naive boy lost in the world of politics; if he does know this and still got angry, he remains a bigger liability for his party than one had originally thought.
Tantrums aside, Rahul must realize politics is more than catchy phrases like ‘suit boot ka sarkar.’ It is about having a vision for India.
PM Modi has promised development while all Rahul has given us is dharna. It’s time to grow up. – Mail Online, 23 October 2015
