    NEW DELHI: Reaching out to the Dalits with the assembly and Lok Sabha elections approaching, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday urged for more representation for the community in the Congress party and attacked BSP leader Mayawati, saying she was not allowing other Dalit leaders to rise.

    Addressing two back-to-back functions in the capital on the empowerment of Dalits, Rahul Gandhi also hit out at the opposition, saying they would lose the 2014 elections as they had ignored the Dalits, never bothered to go to their homes or "hold their hands and understand their problems".

    Gandhi said the Dalit community "needs the escape velocity of Jupiter" to achieve success.

    The Gandhi scion dwelt on astronomy to explain to the Vigyan Bhavan audience the phenomenon of escape velocity -- or the speed that an object needs to be travelling to break free of a planet or moon's gravity.

    Addressing a function on National Awareness Camp for Scheduled Castes Empowerment at Vigyan Bhavan, Rahul Gandhi said B R Ambedkar was the first Dalit to attain escape velocity and after him Kanshi Ram channelised "the energy that was created due to reservation" and helped many Dalits attain escape velocity.

    But he said Mayawati, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister, had captured the Dalit leadership and was not allowing others to rise.

    The Congress leader said if the movement for escape velocity has to be taken forward it needs the participation of lakhs of Dalit leaders.

    He said he has asked prominent Dalit leaders in the Congress to systematically develop leadership at "panchayat, MLA, MP and policy level".

    At Talkatora Stadium, Gandhi described the Dalits as the "reed ki haddi" or spine of the Congress party.

    "The more representation you give them in the Congress party, it is not enough. These people are the spine of the Congress party and we must do more for them," Gandhi said at the Dalit Adhikar Diwas (Dalit rights' day).

    To loud cheers of "Rahul Gandhi zindabad", "Rahul Gandhi is the messiah of the downtrodden" and the "India's rising star", Gandhi said the Congress party would do everything to empower the Dalits and for training and educating them.

    Pointing to the youth of the Valmiki community sitting in the stadium, Gandhi said those people sitting in the last seats should be brought forward.

    "Their faces should be seen in the Vidhan Sabha and Lok Sabhas" - making the entire audience erupt in cheers.

    He also attacked the opposition parties.

    "Congress is the party for the poor, our opposition does not understand the problems of the poor. They don't go to their homes and hold their hands or discuss their problems," he said.

    "And then they speak of India shining. And lose the polls. They lost it in 2004, in 2009 and will lose again in 2014," he said.

    "If you want to win elections, go to the homes of the poor and hold their hands and then go and win the elections," said Gandhi.

    Addressing the Bhagwan Valmiki Foundation, which had organised the event, the Congress leader also enumerated the legislation brought by the United Progressive Alliance government (UPA), including on the right to education, food security, the rural employment guarantee scheme and the RTI.

    He said earlier the slogan of the Congress was that "we shall sleep on half empty stomachs but vote for the Congress" and now it will be "Bhar pet kayenge aur Congress ko vote deyenge (Will sleep on full stomachs and vote for Congress)" due to the food security act brought recently.

    I think he meant the escape velocity on Jupiter. I won't be surprised if he doesn't know the difference though.

    Re: Dalit community needs escape velocity of Jupiter for success: Raul

    You need to read the link again and understand it properly. Planets orbit their stars or suns and satellites orbit their planets. FYI even comets orbit sun but they are not called planets. Why??? Pls read a bit more and read the link which you post in toto

    Jupiter is both a planet and a satellite. This is a straight answer to your straight question.

    Please read the link in toto, for the second time.

    Re: Dalit community needs escape velocity of Jupiter for success: Raul

    A natural satellite, or moon, is a celestial body that orbits another body, e.g. a planet, which is called its primary. There are 173 known natural satellites orbiting planets in the Solar System,

    This shows that the primary of a satellite is a planet and not a star.

    A planet (from Ancient Greek ἀστὴρ πλανήτης (astēr planētēs), meaning "wandering star") is an astronomical object orbiting a star or stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity

    Planet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Re: Dalit community needs escape velocity of Jupiter for success: Raul

    Correct.
    Wrong. Read this again:
    "Example, a planet," does not mean "planet and planet only." (You don't quite understand what an example means, do you?)
    Read the other link I have posted. (http://nineplanets.org/sol.html)

    Jupiter is both a planet and a satellite.

    Re: Dalit community needs escape velocity of Jupiter for success: Raul

    This is all to show he has some thoughts behind what he says. Be it him if not someone else who is putting words in his mouth and speech. His name will also pop into everything good the government does up to the election. I give credit to congress where it's due but it's hard to read rg. I can understand It's a evolution with him and I hope that the intellectuals do not give the same breadth of convenience they gave to his mother where it was a wrong to criticise her (I can say that it was right that intellectuals did not). What happened to his father was terrible but if a kid is not right and lucid and the congress party is not in need of such leadership it's better to be real and call a spade a spade. Even today can anyone say Sonia gandhi is a good leader. The implication is she is the leader but nothing wrong is said against her (rightly so because of Rajiv). If the same approach is given to Rahul gandhi he will not be a (x) prime minister no matter what calculations and projections and physics he uses.

    Tweets

    Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's statement likening the Dalit movement to the "escape velocity of Jupiter" has gone viral. Speaking at the Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi, Gandhi said, "In India, we have a concept of caste. If one belongs to a backward caste and wants to attain success then one needs an escape velocity of Jupiter to attain that success."

    The Congress Vice President also hit out at BSP chief Mayawati for the plight of the community saying that the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister was not allowing his party to work for the Dalits.

    Here's what tweets say:

    JUST IN : Stephen Hawking has filed a petition for Voluntary euthanasia after hearing Rahul Gandhi speak about

    Jupiter's #EscapeVelocity for Dalits? Let #Paidmedia n #enrega propel it. Rahul is seriously humourous. I bet he just heard the word dayB4.

    @S_Mandalia: Rahul gandhi shud campaign more, everytime he speaks BJP gains few thousand votes #EscapeVelocity

    @fakingnews: From today onward, the universal gravitational constant, or the Big G, will stand for (Rahul) Gandhi
    @sundeepgummadi So wanna meet his speech writers. You're all just jealous that Rahul Gandhi's ideas are out of this world. #EscapeVelocity.

    Re: Dalit community needs escape velocity of Jupiter for success: Raul

    Dalits need to escape the clutches of Congress party, which has ruled India for decades and kept them poor and backward.

    They are so shameless that each election they keep crying "we are party of poor". But when they rule, all the ministers and their relations loot the country, leaving Dalits and everyone else poor.
