Bhai Tumse nahi hoga !!!
Here is the link:
Rahul Gandhi will regret giving this interview for the rest of this year, maybe throughout his life.
He just cannot answer a question straight. Every question is met with the standard nonsense of "systems and processes" and "big picture" crap.
By the way, the difference in intelligence between this guy and Kejriwal is obvious. Kejriwal gave two interviews recently, one to Rajdeep and one to Burkha. His answers were so to-the-point and intelligent. Kejriwal went to IIT Kharagpur and then after becoming disillusioned with engineering, wrote the civil services exam and cracked it, joining the IRS. He cracked two of India's toughest exams in the space of a few years. The intelligence shows. The intelligence difference between Rahul and Kejriwal shows even more.
After watching the interview for 15 minutes my 10 year old son exclaimed-- Why is he avoiding the questions?
His opinion was that he would not vote for him.
@Singh Please merge this thread with
Rahul Gandhi vs Narendra Modi in 2014
Biggest mistake from Congress to expose him before the elections. Now we know why he disappears from public sight regularly.
Any thoughts on how Congress will do damage control?
God bless you Arnab Goswami. Respect from the bottom of my heart.
Those of you who had a tense day, thank me in advance for the hearty laugh. Here goes .... #RahulSpeaksToArnab !!!
Starts with a falsity "Congress didn't name a PM candidate in 2009".
The inevitable Rahul Counter Q to the PM Q:
Why did you become a journalist?? #SomeThingsNeverChange
There is global energy which wants to bring manufacturing to India"
[-- ... ehh what?? --]
Our system is unfair, our energy is trapped, says Rahul Gandhi.
[-- Who made it unfair? Who trapped the energy?--]
"We will defeat the BJP .... I believe in RTI."
Arnab: How is Narendra Modi to be blamed for 2002 after SIT gave clean chit?
Rahul Gandhi: We believe in empowering women.
Arnab: But your party continues to blame Modi.
Rahul Gandhi: The real issue is empowering women.
Arnab: Do you acknowledge the role of Congress in 1984 massacre of Sikhs?
Rahul: Some Congressmen were probably involved.
Arnab: Do you believe Congressmen were involved.
Rahul: Innocent people died.
Arnab: How did Congressmen do what they did if Govt was trying to stop 1984?
Rahul: There is due process of law.
Arnab: Explain Gujarat Govt aiding the riots.
Rahul: I am not saying this, people are saying it.
Arnab: Courts have cleared Modi and the government in 2002 riots. How then do you accuse Modi?
Rahul: Your colleagues told me.
Rahul: Laws are passed by Parliament. We have to pass a law (to bring parties under RTI).
[--Rahul's Parliament attendance 43%. Spoke twice totally--]
Arnab: What do you think of Ind NZ series-
Rahul: See you have to understand that we have to follow the process. We have to empower the team.
Arnab: Should parties be under RTI?
Rahul: The central question is who chooses candidates.
Arnab: Why are you still protecting Ashok Chavan?
Rahul: I have made my position clear. We brought RTI.
Arnab: Why are bureaucrats punished, not politicians in Adarsh case.
Rahul: There are 6 Bill sitting in Parliament.
Arnab: Are you willing to take action on Ashok Chavan and Virbhadra Singh?
Rahul: There is a legal process.
Arnab: Is it appropriate of Virbhadra Singh to take money...
Rahul: We have passed Lokpal.
Arnab: Why didn't you speak up on 2G, CWG, Coalgate.
Rahul: I report to the Prime Minister. Whatever I felt I told the Prime Minister.
Arnab: Do you feel you should have spoken up on corruption earlier?
Rahul: I don't hear discussion on how we are choosing a candidate
Arnab: Will you make compromise on Lalu Prasad Yadav?
Rahul: These decisions are made by senior leaders. Our alliance is with idea not party
[--Lalu is an idea .. like poverty is a state of mind --]
Arnab: What about inflation?
Rahul Gandhi: Women are the backbone of the countr
Arnab: Will you do something on prices?
Rahul: I am working with PM. Our State Govts have lowered vegetable prices.
Arnab: What about AAP?
Rahul: The real strength of the Congress is the dept of the organisation.
Arnab: Wise to give support to AAP?
Rahul: AAP won an election so we thought we would help them...
Arnab: BJP got more seats than AAP...
Rahul: I want to revive manufacturing industry.
Arnab: Are you using AAP to stop Modi?
Rahul: You're underestimating Congress. Even if it wanted to, Congress couldn't do it.
Arnab: Are you using AAP to stop Modi?
Rahul: We will win this election. Arnab: If you lose? Rahul: I am responsible.
Arnab: Are you a vote-catcher?
Rahul: If we lose elections, I am blamed. We have to change the system.
Arnab: Why do you keep invoking family name?
Rahul: I didn't choose to be born in this family. I didn't sign up for this family.
Rahul: You haven't asked me one question how to improve India. You are not interested in that.
Arnab: I'm not interested in a Rahul speech. This is NOT a Rahul Gandhi speech but a Rahul Gandhi interview
Arnab: Swamy raises questions about your degrees.
Rahul: I am being attacked because I am thinking deeply.
Arnab: How can you have your head in sand.
Rahul: Crux is how we choose candidates. You don't like discussing it. I'm a serious politician.
Arnab: What about Priyanka ...
Rahul: I want to help use energy of this country. I want to get away from issues and get deeper into issues.
[--Read the last line again --]
Arnab: When will you marry?
Rahul: For this you have to know my past.I saw my granny & father die, because of the system. I want to change the system.
Arnab: Do you think watching porn in the assembly is wrong Mr.Gandhi?
Rahul: We need more women in the system.
Arnab: Your 'power is poison' comment reinforces image of you as reluctant prince.
Rahul: Regardless of what I do I don't like unfairness.
Arnab: Had you not been a Gandhi would you be in politics?
Rahul: Maybe you find me strange. Arnab: No I don't find you strange.
Rahul: In many ways I am an anomaly in the environment. Power is poison remark I tell my sister and my sister tells my mother.
Arnob: "Why is Khemka being hounded for Vadra's land deals in Haryana?";
Rahul: "We must empower women & give RTI to people"
Rahul: I am not interested in power. I want to reduce pain because of predatory system.
Arnab: Were you angry with Shinde for giving facesaver to Kejriwal.
Rahul: We have structure.
Arnab: Were you upset with Shinde?
Rahul: You are going back.
Arnab: What do you mean.
Rahul: It is superficiality.
Arnab: Of course not.
Arnab: Will you have a debate with Modi?
Rahul: You start the debate. The real issue is doing this stuff.
Arnab: What do you mean?
Rahul: We have to empower women.
Arnab: But investors don't want to invest in India. You get my point.
Rahul: Yes I get your point. Actually RTI has changed the game.
Arnab: How are you different? Why no change at the top?
Rahul: Abracadabra won't change system. I am doing revolutionary work.
Arnab: Will you be open to debate with Modi.
Rahul: We believe in panchayati raj.
Arnab: Most opinion polls are saying Congress will lose this election, score lowest.
Rahul: This country will do well if people are involved
Arnab: Modi tells people you have given Congress 60 years, give me 60 months.
Rahul: We have given Aadhar.
RahulG came prepared for a different question paper I think, Arnab changed the questions all were out of syllabus
I'm surprised that the congress high command even allowed this interview to be played (it was recorded right?)
Lets keep that thread serious, and this thread for levity. It will be an insult to Modi to talk about this interview
They can't salvage this surely. Although on twitter the damage control has begun somewhat.
Answer to everything - Women Empowerment
...BJP's headquarters just before the interview...
How about an interview with Chidambaram? Maybe one with Khurshid too?
On the other hand,it'd be perfect for Modi if he went on to give a few interviews on pro BJP channels and capitalize on this blunder.
BTW it look as though Rahul was parroting everything that Kejriwal has been fighting for ?
1. RTI - Kejriwal behind it
2. Lokpal - Kejriwal behind it
3. Youngsters in Politics - Kejriwal actually brought them
4. Decentralization - Kejriwal's number 1 demand
And the sycophancy begins : poor Rahul Gandhi will be beaming after this interview
