Rahul Gandhi goes abroad again but why does the BJP care so much?

The BJP on Friday dubbed Rahul Gandhi “spoiled child” of Indian politics and said the Congress was behaving with “complete irresponsibility” under his overall leadership.



I do worry about dengue and the fact that nothing looks cleaner in Delhi.

But I really don’t care where Rahul Gandhi is and I don’t see his current trip to the US as a desertion of things Indian. In the great cosmic sense it is not even a blip on my ‘concern’ radar and I am hard placed to understand why the BJP is in a twist over it.

I would like to know where Somnath Bharti is hiding and how the cops cannot locate him but I don’t give a toss if Rahul Gandhi is in Aspen or in Arizona or the Andes and how he went.

I know the Indian PM took a plane all for himself and by protocol there is one other jet on standby and a third on location, which means that there are three planes out of service. But since we now know our PM is on a visit visa to India, I was thinking perhaps we could just take the redundant Sushma Swaraj and give her another job because Mr Modi has hijacked hers. Saves the exchequer money.

But back to Rahul Gandhi. It is more relevant to express dismay about the rising prices of dals and other essential commodities than fret about how he went,who lent him a plane, where he is and what is this secret cabal in Colorado where he will display his incandescent brilliance.

I just hope it is a fragile cover up for a date and he is shacking up somewhere, because at least that means he is normal. I’d worry more if he wasn’t.

That’s a healthier explanation than not being able to tell anyone the name of the seminar or the theme.

And really, the BJP should get over this Rahul Gandhi hang up. The media cannot have enough of the guy. When it comes to media coverage, even if it is negative publicity it is publicity, and it sticks.Look what it has done for Donald Trump.

About the hooha over this trip and the Congress making a dog’s breakfast of explaining where he is- it does not affect you and I, so I think it’s best to let it go.

As for the government wanting to know where he is, let me say- the guy has got Z security right? You gave it to him, don’t you know?

Me, I’d rather worry about Sambit Patra and how he manages to be the expert on every day on every subject possible on every TV panel…doesn’t the guy have a job.
