Watching Rahul Gandhi is like watching a cute crush whose words just do not matter to you. He blabbers, whines and complains and you just focus on his dimples.
Watching Rahul Gandhi is like watching a cute crush whose words just do not matter to you. He blabbers, whines and complains and you pretty much focus on his dimples occurring due to flash of smiles or on the lip-movement.
It is better that way, you know, given that he completely s***s when it comes to public speaking. His speech is more (and less) repetition of his earlier public addresses. Same old lines in more aggressive manners just like old wine in an old bottle where the wine has actually gone bitterly bad.
He tries to make people open-up to his blabber. He also asks them to register their complaints, that too by shouting, which is no sign of humility or civilization for that matter. Although this shouting business is kind of thing used by BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi too but it is completely different as it is used to invoke nationalist sentiments in his listeners by asking him to shout “Bharat Mata ki jai” and “Vande Mataram”.
So, was Rahul trying to imitate him? This may be explained by the reason that NaMo is considered to be more popular among youth than Rahul who is actually younger than him. The whole idea that a 63 year grey haired is man is able to use the same lingo as young dudes flashing latest gizmos and understanding their needs and aspirations at the same time than a 43 year old political scion is, yes, disturbing. And this is what must be pushing Rahul towards the edge.
He issues reckless statements without batting his eyelids. Where is his conscience when he does this every second month? Whether it is his one liner on Mumbai terror attacks, equating migrants from North India in Mumbai to beggars, meaningless ranting in front of India Inc., nonsensical press crash to call for tearing an ordinance devised by government, asking Dalits to gain escape velocity of Jupiter, or his more recent declaration “More people in Madhya Pradesh are hungry than in Africa”, he has always been able to surprise us by his ‘order of thinking’.
To top it all, he complains like a sissy school boy. “Whenever we try to do something, the opposition comes in our way. They make fun of us in the Parliament too,” he told the janata at Gwalior in M.P. last night.
Rahul’s lack in political correctness, knowledge of administrative work and ability to debate worthy issues is his downfall. At a time when he could have pointed out administrative failures in many of the incidents that took place in the country, he just tried secure brownie points by saying that his government stood by those suffering without much going into the details of it.
In MP too, he could have slammed the government by talking about a similar stampede which took place five years back in the state. But he rather chose to issue a diktat: Respect the dead. We assume that he was unaware of the incidence or just ignorant.
The boring comparison of roadways and highways with no new possible conclusion, old emotional cards, bad statements and little hunger games make him look like “no wonder” boys who have just been pushed to the top because they had to be not because they earned it.
Rahul’s petty little acts of desperation trying to take leverage by mudding other’s reputation qualifies him for becoming an actor but not a political leader who can understand his people and invoke respect among fellow politicians at the same time.
