The one man still existing on earth to get give up at any cost, in spite of being criticized by every possible person who has heard him talk the silliest of logic (according to him). Right from the Prime Minister to a common man, he is the talk of the town for the idiotic claims that he makes. Well, he needs to description the one and only Congress President Rahul Gandhi!
This time he has been rightly answered and also through the right forum, by the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who hit out at Congress President for attacking ANI Editor Smita Prakash as ‘pliable journalist’. Here’s what Jaitley had to convey about Rahul Gandhi and his thoughts:
The Grandson of the ‘Emergency dictator’ displays his real DNA – attacks and intimidates an independent Editor.

Earlier ANI’s Editor Smita Prakash interviewed Prime Minister Narendra Modi in which the PM had spoken on several issues – from Demonetisation to Ram Mandir. The Congress President could not have stayed without expressing his views about this interview and went ahead to say something that was unacceptable for anyone. He also called the interview ‘staged’.
“He (Modi) does not have the guts to come and sit in front of you. And I am coming here… you can ask me any question… I come here once in seven-ten days… and you saw the Prime Minister’s interview yesterday…matlab pliable journalist, woh question bi kar rahi thi, pradhan mantri ka answer bi de rahi thi, side mein (she was asking questions as well as giving answers),” he said.
After learning about Rahul Gandhi’s reaction to the interview, Editor Smita Prakash did not take the remark lying down and made sure that these statements were not acceptable. She would not let the dignity of a journalist come down at any point. She immediately tweeted in response:
Dear Mr Rahul Gandhi, cheap shot at your press conference to attack me. I was asking questions not answering. You want to attack Mr Modi, go ahead but downright absurd to ridicule me. Not expected of a president of the oldest political party in the country.

What happened later was indeed expected by all of us. It was Divya Spandana who handles Social Media and Digital Communications for the Congress continued the attack on the Editor, she conveyed the message of course being the savior of her party president and on his behalf. At times you expect and it does happen, doesn’t it?

It was just a day back, what happened at the Lok Sabha was rather a interesting debate to watch and learn about. The Congress president tried and made repeated attacks at the PM Modi Government regarding the Rafale Deal with the French Government (as Congress has no other issue to point out at the Modi Government). Here’s how the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley fired back:
“It is unfortunate that Congress-the grand old party of Indian politics, which in the past has been headed by great legends is today headed by a gentleman who does not understand even the basics of what a combat aircraft is.”
Rahul Gandhi continues to hold views that “have been thrown out by the Supreme Court”.
Adding on to Gandhi’s baseless allegations against the Modi Government:
“There are some people who have a natural dislike for truth. This is one such case. He [Rahul Gandhi] manufactured a conversation between him and French President Emmanuel Macron. The French government has refuted all his claims.”
Gandhi also said that the Congress possesses an audio tape where a BJP minister in Goa can be heard saying that former defence minister and present Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told his cabinet colleagues that files related to the Rafale deal are lying in his bedroom. Responding to Gandhi’s claim on the audio tape, Jaitley said the tape is a manufactured one.
“He [Rahul Gandhi] was too scared to authenticate the tape because he knows his party has manufactured it. The Goa chief minister has already stated that it is doctored and has demanded a probe into how Congress manufactured the tape,” he said.
Making sure not to spare the Gandhi family at any circumstances, Jaitley also pointed finger at the Gandhi family and accused it of having links with cases like the AgustaWestland case, the National Herald case and the Bofors case. It is known that the Gandhi’s are yet to produce their clarification against these allegations and have not been declared innocents.
“If the fingers point at you in AugustaWestland, National Herald and Bofors, then it is a bit too much. Today, they have the audacity to raise an allegation against us,” Jaitley added.
