Rahul Gandhi showed up at Bengaluru’s Mount Carmel college in a casual attire, a stub and a script to impress. Sadly, the script backfired.
While dismissively talking about Modi government’s Swach Bharat campaign, he asked a seemingly rhetorical question:
“It’s not working, is it?”
“I don’t see it working, do you see it working?”
Sadly (for him), the students decided to answer the question: almost all of them roared a definitive “YES” which stumped Rahul. Then, in a desperate attempt to save his grace, he asked another question (which pulled him even deeper into the “quicksand of backfire-ism”).
He asked, “Let’s ask another question. Do you think Make in India is working?”
One can learn two things from this comical incident:
a. Never give up.
b. Rahul Gandhi is tolerant because even if you make 1000s of jokes on him, he will never try to censor you.
