Arun Jaitley takes Rahul Gandhi to the cleaners

...the lying juvenile 'prince' is a major failure!

Rahul Gandhi and Congress want to do a Donald Trump in India using the Cambridge Analytica template.  There are a few problems though for them.  One, unlike US, India’s PM can be a lifelong vocation if one is good enough.  Trump could do what he did because he is there for one term, at most (if the entire US goes completely bonkers) a second term.  Narendra Modi and even Rahul Gandhi will be answerable to the Indian public throughout their lives and will fight for the top slot.  So, you can fool the public once (as they did in MP and Rajasthan with the farmer loan waiver) but you cannot keep doing it.  Once you fool the public, it remains in the minds of those poor who will never forget how they were crushed to the ground!

Second, the wisdom of Indian poor and rural masses is much more than that of the larger US rural populace.  They have shown that time and again.  Democracy, with its electronic voting and handling several hundred millions of votes in a day’s time, is much more vibrant and secure in India than in US, where you have to be a Christian to have any shot at the Presidency!

So, when Rahul Gandhi came up with his drama of the tape for which he did not have the spine to stand up for his words, he was taken to the cleaners by Arun Jaitley – who gave him the drubbing of his lifetime!

Here are someone of the things Mr Jaitley said during the day about the juvenile prince.  And the statement from the Finance Minister is also given below for you to enjoy.

“This man lies, and lies repeatedly,” he said. (when Rahul Gandhi failed to authenticate the tape and tried reading the “transcript” forcefully as his microphone was switched off) (source)

“Even if Rahul Gandhi were to be reborn 10 times, he and his family cannot match integrity standards of Narendra Modi” (TimesNow interview)

Offset was UPA policy, which means that Indian companies will get businesses of 50% of the final deal price. Reliance is an offset supplier, Rahul thinks he is Rafale manufacturer. Rafale deal is of Rs 58,000 crore, how can offset deal be Rs 1,30,000 crore. (source)

  1. Wonderful analysis, but I am afraidas the others, you have missed a very crucial point. The Family and it’s private firm called INC, must have very highly placed bureaucrats, enjoying the PM’s confidence being his own selection, who are acting as the source of all secrets of the govt decisions and files/documents. And this is what is giving this parasite of the party president and his pets so much of fodder against the govt. Why the PM and his advisors are not able to realise this in house menace is really an enigma.

    1. I do agree with you, Aurbindo in normal way. What I find intriguing is that he followed the same policy in Gujarat and still no one was able to do anything. With Ajit Doval by his side, I am amazed that he is STILL not doing what you say (and what I would have done). And, these are two of the smartest guys on that side of the planet when it comes to politics and intelligence. Is there something that we are missing and they know? I am not one given to conspiracy theories, but Doval is no ordinary guy – he can get into Bhindranwala gang as an ISI officer and into the Nagas group as one of them. Not easy.
