Being a main opposition leader, it is obvious for him to oppose the government. but right now, he should show that he doesn’t care about brownie points. It’s almost obvious that Sachin Pilot is on his way out of the Congress, and sooner or later, the Ashok Gehlot government may slip away from the Congress. Rahul Gandhi is busy mocking the PM and government on China and interviewing global experts.

Nothing more powerfully illustrates the disconnect between him and the party and between him and the nation as his conduct over the last three months.

Rahul Gandhi’s non-stop anti-government diatribe not only exposes his intellectual level but proves that he hasn’t learnt anything. Yet, Sonia Gandhi has been promoting him above all. His remark on the Prime Minister “hiding”, and “Surrender Modi” didn’t work out well with many in his party and almost everyone in the Opposition.

By questioning the government about why soldiers died unarmed, he showed his childish behaviour. Even an illiterate citizen can tell about the India-China agreements that restrict on carrying arms along the LAC.

The BJP president J P Nadda has rightly responded, stating that a dynast throws tantrums and his courtiers peddle a fake narrative to please and appease him – Unfortunately, at a time when the entire country is united.

Rahul Gandhi’s remarks regarding the workers’ emigration and the government not proving them food and shelter, also reflect upon him. The green and glossy grounds of the palatial bungalows he and his family occupy could have provided food and shelter to many thousands of labourers. In fact, when Priyanka Gandhi was asked to vacate her 35 Lohi Estate government accommodation, none of the Congressmen protested or even objected. None of any big face of congress came out to help nation in Corona time despite giving childish statements.

Being a main opposition leader, it is obvious for him to oppose the government. But right now, he should show that he doesn’t care about brownie points.

He should have learnt from the RSS ideologue and founder, Madhav Sadashiv Golwalkar. During the Sino-Indian war in 1962, despite criticising or opposing Jawaharlal Nehru, he had offered the full support of the country. Nehru, quite appeased by this effort, even he asked a regiment of the RSS to participate in the 1963 Republic Day parade.

When P V Narasimha Rao was India’s external affairs minister, he sent Atal Bihari Vajpayee, then a leader from the Opposition, to defend India at the UN as the country’s trump card. Instead of learning from history and behaving responsibly, Rahul Gandhi has let down the Congress by uttering ill-advised statements.

There’s an interesting incident in the Indian Parliament in the aftermath of India’s 1962 loss to China. China occupied a huge amount of land and Nehru stated that not a single blade of grass grew there and it was useless and just barren land. To that Maulana Azad exhumed, “My dear Panditji, that’s wrongly stated! Even you don’t have a single hair on your head. Would you consider it trash and let it be chopped down?” Nehru had no response to that.

Owing to the lack of internal democracy in the Congress and egotism of the dynasts, they have lost credibility. In fact, many elderly Congressmen have been subjected to abusing rants and utter humiliation by the dynasts. Unless Rahul Gandhi grows to inculcate a level of humanity and humility, he can never become a mass leader. If Arving Kejriwal, Once called the perpetual rebel, has learnt from Modi, why can’t Rahul?
