THE ut­ter­ances of Congress Pres­i­dent Mr. Rahul Gandhi in the past two days is a re­flec­tion of his poor knowl­edge as well as the crass brand of pol­i­tics his party re­sorts to time and again. The crown prince stooped to another level when he tried to gar­ner po­lit­i­cal points on the ill-health of for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Mr. Atal Be­har­iVa­j­payee. Mr. Gandhi’s ut­ter­ance that he was the first to visit the ail­ing ex-PM be­fore the BJP lead­ers did is ut­ter non­sense which even a child will mock at. Such state­ments by the leader of a grand old party reek of the coarse val­ues and so­cial norms the present day Congress is prac­tic­ing. Clearly bereft of any ideas to counter the pace of de­vel­op­ment the Govern­ment is achiev­ing Mr. Gandhi is tak­ing friv­o­lous dig at PM Mr. Naren­dra Modi on any is­sue. The other day Mr. Gandhi scored another self-goal by spread­ing fic­ti­tious his­tory of Coca Cola and Mercedes. Such men­tal bankruptcy and low level of pol­i­tics would only has­ten the Congress’ wipe-out from the po­lit­i­cal land­scape in In­dia. For the BJP-led NDA, more Mr. Gandhi show­ers his pearls of wis­dom, more they gain!
