Rahul stumped at Bengaluru interaction
Mount Carmel girls disagree with Congress VP, say Swachh Bharat working
Bengaluru, Nov 25: In an embarrassment for Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, students at the Mount Carmel college in Bengaluru on Wednesday rebuffed the leader for his views on the 'Clean India' and the 'Make in India' initiatives of the Union government. Addressing the students at an event, Rahul took a snipe at Prime Minister rendra Modi and said the country was being run by just one person and that an individual alone cannot bring transformation.
He then proceeded to ask the audience if the 'Clean India' campaign was a success and much to the surprise of the Congress leader, a majority of the students said 'yes'.
A visually uncomfortable Rahul took a pause and repeated the question: "You think it's working?" and the students, once again said 'yes'.
He then posed another question - "Do you think 'Make In India' is working?" And the students answered in the affirmative. The Congress vice president though, kept smiling throughout masking the obvious embarrassment. As Students endorsed Modi's schemes , Rahul Gandhi continued the attack on Modi government by saying that BJP doesn't believe in holding talks with the Opposition. "They just know how to silence the voices." Talking to the media after the event concluded, Rahul said with a smile that he had a good interaction with the students on many important issues.
