Rahul Gandhi is back. Now with two economists, a migrant aid pack and an ethical hacker

Rahul Gandhi’s chats with Raghuram Rajan and Abhijit Banerjee, along with Zoom press conferences clearly indicate that the Congress leader is in a comeback mode.

Text Size:

It takes a lot to be defeated twice over, ridiculed for years and still care enough to show up for your country, the majority of which has rejected you for a national leadership role. Rahul Gandhi continues to surprise us. He simply won’t give up. He just doesn’t turn cynical and walk away.

He keeps coming back with his empathy as well as his willingness to find viable solutions to pressing issues induced by the pandemic: an economy in doldrums, a huge migrant workers’ problem that’s slowly turned into a humanitarian crisis as well as transparency of the government’s Arogya Setu app being used to map Covid positive patients. Rahul Gandhi’s comeback is all the more conspicuous against the backdrop of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unwillingness to have a press conference.

Rahul is ready to talk

Rahul Gandhi is the eternal unputdownable comeback kid. He has managed to hold the attention of the media by continuously participating in the process of finding answers to the problems that Covid has thrown at India. He has had two conversations with two economists par excellence, former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan and Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee. Add to this, the migrant aid pack that Sonia Gandhi offered, where the Congress party would have paid the train fare for every migrant labourer who wants to go home. This “masterstroke” has made the fiercest of critics of the Congress party applaud the Gandhis. The Gandhis are consciously and conspicuously placing themselves polar opposite to Narendra Modi. Whatever Modi is avoiding, the Gandhis are accepting and dealing squarely.

Right-wing editorials are claiming that Rahul Gandhi is trying to come off as an “intellectual”. This, for a man who till recently they caustically made fun of. But this perception is cracking because for the first time, the entire BJP PR machinery is being used to not make fun of Rahul Gandhi, but to discredit his interactions with the two economists by either calling the interaction a “repackaged Socialist snake oil” or by spinning fake news related to the guests. MoneyControl.com and News18 misquoted Abhijit Bannerjee as criticising UPA’s schemes, which the BJP had embraced. Banerjee had said no such thing.

Ending obsession with Modi

Then there’s Rahul Gandhi’s two press conferences (via Zoom). We got to see a visibly more calmer and zen Rahul Gandhi who is neither shaken nor stirred by the six-year-long vicious slander by the BJP or the media, which has more often than not dealt rather unfairly with him. He has significantly altered his behaviour from the Rahul of yore, who would either attack Modi with his ‘Chowkidar Chor hai’ jibe or give him a hug in Parliament and say that he loves the prime minister.

Rahul’s detachment from Modi is palpable when he urges the government to transfer direct cash to the poor, as envisaged in Congress’s NYAY scheme, by saying “Call it ‘nyay’ (justice) or call it by any other name but do it.”

Rahul, it appears, has specifically distanced himself from acts of political pettiness and his statements reflect a sense of political maturity: “We can defeat the virus if we fight it together, we lose if we fight with each other”. Even though he also unapologetically added that he does not agree with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on most things but wanted to offer “constructive suggestions”.

Gandhi’s well-directed tweets with suggestions to the government are now also being affirmed by experts.

Turning Aarogya to his advantage

While the BJP is in pathological denial of anything substantive that Rahul Gandhi or the two economists had to say, an ethical hacker had the government promptly take notice and admit to its mistake. French hacker Elliot Alderson on Twitter looked into the Aarogya Setu app and confirmed Rahul’s fear that it was nothing more than a “sophisticated surveillance system”. The app’s user agreement states that the data can be used in the future for purposes other than epidemic control if there is a legal requirement. The privacy policy of the app states that the data on the app may be shared with as many agencies as the government sees fit.

Alderson went on to confirm and tweeted to the government that “A security issue has been found in your app. The privacy of 90 million Indians is at stake.” He ended the tweet with a post script that read; “@Rahul Gandhi was right.”

Although the Modi government confirmed that there could be no security breach in the app, they thanked the ethical hacker on engaging with them. Alderson on the other hand has confirmed that some of the issues he reported were fixed in the app and that he did receive calls from the National Informatics Centre (NIC) and the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (ICERT), both government bodies.

In fact the press note of Aarogya Setu thanked Alderson for engaging with them. “We thank the ethical hacker on engaging with us. We encourage any users who identify a vulnerability to inform us immediately.” Alderson, however, maintained that the app should “stop lying, stop denying”.

Rahul’s initial warning, as early as 12 February, foreboding the government of ignoring the contagion almost seems prophetic today. The BJP can go on to dismiss him but it’s getting harder for the party and the government to ignore Rahul in these Covid times.

  1. Every comment above says one thing “The Print is a paid publication ot the Pappu brigade”

    and still you have the audacity to dole out articles again ad again

    people come here to your site to see if you have changed or improved

    but alas you have’nt changed a bit.. Pappu fixation may be paying you in the short run, but in the long run if ou wish to survive in the media world, you need to come out this short term money game

  2. Pappu is like Blackberry, keeps flopping and the ISI-Urban Naxal axis keeps funding massively & relaunching him to somehow remove Modi for full scale Hindu oppression like it happened during UPA-1 & UPA-2. The day Modi loses , arm yourself like American 2nd Amendment, because the Islamic terrorists and their Commie proxies will be out attacking temples and Hindu homes, kidnapping Hindu girls like Pakistan, while bar-dancer government will call it stray incident.

  3. You people are a gang of conspirators. Yes you find a charismatic leader out of a proved idiot. We know you very you commies

    • Mr Mukund: When you pontificated:

      “You people are a gang of conspirators. Yes you find a charismatic leader out of a proved idiot”

      Were you referring to Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Yogi Adityanath, Tejaswi Surya, Jayant Sinha, Yeddyurappa, Sadhvi Pragya Thakur etc.?

  4. You people are bloody gang of rascal conspirators. Yes you find a charismatic leader out of a proved idiot. We know you very you commies

  5. I request to rahul gandhi please stop giving your advice to MODI government, people have seen what you did from 2004 to 2013 & how much advice you have given to your own government, if you really wants to help poor people returned the money your government looted of this country for so many years in power into PM CARES so it goes to poor people in your name’s. We will advice PM MODI to give your name for that charity.

  6. What Modi has done for India. He is been criticized all over the world for divide n rule with Muslims of India.He has filled his pocket n let go all cheaters from India. Now if Rahul Ghandhi is showing enthusiasm for the country even after his defeat give him a chance as a Congress leader. I think we must change the ruling party.

  7. Somebody must be their ,who screw RAGAs happiness, he grown up but still look like bloody diaper baby boy, the whole congress has lost it by putting RGon frontline, he has very hard and bad credential as a leader of congress party, in short he is a funny joker of political circus, becoming with novel laureates to jump n pump over economy of country during pandemic , RG and his group made congress party to worst in politics of india,

  8. If people cud become super intellectual s by simply asking questions , the roads wud not be full of idiots.

  9. RAHUL COME BACK MOOD? He is always a Frontline Fighter, From Ache Din to now Bure Din. 2 crore Jobs to today’s No Jobs.
    And when he speaks/creticises, BJP team becomes horrible & horrified and start back firing as if he is the PM.
    And one more thing BJP will make him PM. That’s sure.

  10. Whatever way mother Sonia tries to son Papu, he will always remain as Papu for India. Mother should instead arrange for his marriage early. Atleast people will try to see him serious in family life and not playing computer games.

  11. Listening to this idiot n his ideas always make for a great laugh.. somebody call the circus.. we found their missing clown.. Mr Gandhi get your shit away from Indian politics.. and get back to your day job in the circus

  12. Rahul Gandhi is an oracle. His prophetic words about the app came true. Agree 100% with zainab. Ji.

    Inspite of being rejected by crores of indian, its his love for the poor which makes him to keep coming back.

    Instead of recognising his genuinely caring nature, the sanghi bigots called him pappu, buddhi and many other names. Shows their sanskars.

    He is aggressively participating in press conferences, even more than PM.

    • Even CPI(M) Party daily paper inside provincial Kerala ( DESHABHIMAANI ) have been calling Rahul Gandhi as PAPPU. Guess, Samna was also addressing Rahul Gandhi as PAPPU till October 2019. Having said this Rahul Gandhi gives a Childish Impression, due to his frequent foreign solo sojourns away from India / relinquishing Congress (I) Top position just because of lossing a general election / too much of dependency in family coterie advisor’s / Too much of Hype being created on his perceived untested administrative abilities which had not even entered nursery class . There are dime a dozen more inspiring leaders for Pan Indian role in Congress(I) like having more grass roots connect like Capt. Amarinder Singh / Sachin Pilot / Milind Deora / Jairam Ramesh / Kamalnath etc.

    • LMAO he is so much in love with poor he is sitting at home doing video conference with a kicked out ex-RBI governor and asking him questions on Covid vaccine and treament. RSS is feeding poor in every village with 6 million swayamsevaks everyday. Pappu’s IQ makes me smile on gloomy days.

  13. The Greater Viruses after Coronavirus are Italian
    Gandhis and their Cronies
    Like Sibal Khurshid Surjewala
    His only Aim, how can he
    Be PM like Aurangzeb who
    Imprisoned his father, Shah Jehan.
    He is Not worth discussing

  14. He or Congress can’t do any positive contribution in this tough time. He is just trying to use some of the government’s plans to gain political benefits. For example, GoI has already announced direct transfer to many people of India and also started executing it, he is talking about NYAY scheme.

  15. Again the print shows that they and shekhar gupta is a completely biased person and please someone tell him that while writing an article you don’t write your congresss and left leaning views you write people viewsSHEKAR GUPTA ARE U AWARE OF THE FACT THAT WHILE YOU ARR WRITING THIS CRAP, RAHUL BABA AND HIS MOTHERS PROPERTY IS BEING SEIZED BY INDIAN GOVT AS THEY HAVE LOOTED THE WEALTH OF INDIAN PEOPLE.NO MATTER HOU MUCH BIASED JOURNAL WRITERS LIKE YOU WANT TO SEE RAHULHE IS NOT CONSIDERED RELEVANT.

  16. Rahul Gandhi is the luckiest person in the world. I don’t think anyone will get this much chances in the entire world.

  17. Out of all the comments it was so refreshing when an educated person like Rey put his thoughts so well ,unfortunately many of them seems to be blind bhakts who just doesnt want to see beyond BJP vs Congress or Hindu vs Muslim fights.sad but true

  18. I appreciate the dogged determination and indomitable spirit of the author amply demonstrating her bootlicking loyalty to the clown.

    • Mr Somashekar:

      I appreciate the dogged determination and indomitable spirit of the commenter amply demonstrating his bootlicking loyalty to saffron clowns.

  19. Thank you, God, that Rahul Gandhi is back from his meditation tour of Eastern Europe.
    We were missing the contributions of one of the great minds of our time.

  20. Yes, looks like RG has finally got over his Modi fixation. For the last one decade his only political activity was to blame Modi often with lies and rank stupidity and flying away soon after. It was really surprising that neither he nor his mostly US educated advisers failed to see such obsession with Modi and abuses, often baseless, had no traction with masses. Modi steadily gained popularity while RG went down the ladder. Hopefully he will stick to his present realisations. As regards his discussions with prominent economists seeking solutions to India’s problem, let us accept that what these two renowned economist offered is what every other economist has been suggesting over the last century since Keynes propounded his theory. There was neither anything new or outstanding about it.

  21. This article is a classic example of how abyssmal paid media journalists could become. The journalist is so desperate to justify and project this comic character’s last couple of staged dramas as comeback that he conviniently overlooked the fact that those were the scripted dramas played out mediocrely by this comedian fakely named Rahul Gandhi. Does this character from POGO channel has even pinch of intellect, maturity, vision and leadership skill ….the answer is no. Wherein we all can understand the motives and financial gains these so called journalists get by writing this kind of utter nonsense article what confuses me is what is the need of people like Mr Rajan and Banarjee to be shown associated with this comic character will this not certainly dent their image in the public at large or is this the payback time for them? Yes the question needs to be answered

    • There is value addition for Sri Rahul G.
      From the company of Digvijay Singh his advisers are these two great Economists.
      But at the same time, poor Raghu Rajan and Abhijeet Banerjee must be a tough downward trend to be his advisers.

  23. When for Shramic trains no tickets are issued by IR the question of Congress purchasing tickets needs to be probed. The ‘family first’ party can never do anything good to the Nation. Further is it not a joke a guy who does not understand simple aspects discussing Economy with questionable economists? I think better to start again from nursery. As for Media, if you can’t support a Man who thinks only about Bharatmata atleast shutup and believe me you will be offering the Great Service to the Nation. By serving dubious family you are really doing disservice to our Motherland

  24. My suggestion would be that Pappu should first become CM of a State and prove himself. Just take this as an example, all he did is talk to few of his own followers on Zoom and some people are writing about giving him a chance ? Why ? The way these economists write and talk, you can hardly call them independent. Its clearly visible they have a desire to become next Manmohan Singh.

    Another thing, I really really hope, Rahul listens to all kind of voices and doesn’t listen to only one kind of voice like his ancestors did. Both India and Singapore became independent around same time. PM Nehru and PM Lee Kuan Yew both were friends but look where Singapore and where India is.
    Its true India is much bigger and complex. But that doesn’t mean, India cannot learn from a legend who is admired around the world.

    My suggestion to Rahul Gandhi. Read about 4 people :
    1. Pandit Nehru & Lee Kuan Yew
    2. Indra Gandhi & Modi.
    While they have similarities but we need to focus on how they differ too.

    Have desire to learn and improve which i m afraid Rahul Gandhi lacks. Even after staying in politics for more than a decade, he doesn’t seem to have learned anything.

  25. Welcome back RG. I was worried that I will loose the much needed entertainment during lock down. thank god.. you are back..

  26. Sikander sahiba, I am disappointed in you. Surely you could have puffed up your pyara pappu into a genuine statesman, destined to Make India Secular Again (MISA), rather that just a talk show host to Amreekan economists? Try harder next time. Incidentally I have had the privilege of seeing Shri Rahul Gandhi ji close-up in a small group and the man did NOT impress me. Sorry.

  27. Pappu Raul Vinchi is day dreamer. A poor fellow having No intrinsic value. Man having No knowledge about anything about India, like it’s spirituality, heritage, historical etc. and even his area of politics. His birth is by chance to dum mother imported to India. Poor fellow fit for Nothing

  28. Raul Vinchi is visionless, and poor fellow existing only on the names of ancestors, and born by chance to dump mother imported to India. He is a clear liability for this country. He is a example of spreading negativity, and knowing nothing about India’s rich heritage, cultural, spirituality or even his area of politics.

  29. Are you serious on a joke called Rahul Gandhi… You fall for him and get married to him… That’s the best thing that can happen to you and him.

  30. Rahul gandhi is the only chance shekhar gupta and team has!!..what a bad choice…Get behind some learned guy from congress!!..I liked you before but now you are just a sychophant.

  31. Rahul Gandhi is trying to deviate from the main topic. What India needs is a Hindu rashtra. Learn from modiji let me ask can Rahul Gandhi ever bring demonetisation? Can he build a statue with 3000 crores. Instead he says build hospital for poor with that money. Stupid fellow. Modiji says beat the plate light the lamp etc can Rahul do that.

    What if BJP government do not give gst collected due for their state India is growing.

    Can Rahul increase the price of petrol when global prices reached rock bottom.

    India is the country that pays highest tax for fuel. Thanks to modiji.

    Religious tolerance is highest in India thanks to modiji.

    • You almost had me bro. yes! well analyzed!
      Modi is indeed tolerantly building the fabulous Hindurashtra, where the poor will be slave, women know their place, dalits will savour the “adhyatmik sukh” of cleaning gutters and free planes will be organized for rich people’s dogs. Rahul is a backward looking conservative who wants to bring back those bad old days when GDP was growing at 10% without compromising labour laws.

    • While our Joseph will use the money collected by Congress states from Centre to convert more poor people for Yeshu and stage a drama where devil will be cured by Unholy water…O Praise the Vatican and the child abusing Bishops and Cardinals.

  33. well articulated I think Rahul deserve some these kind of analysis , issue is –

    10 करोड़ मेम्एबर वाली पार्टी , साइबर सेल , प्रवक्ताओं की लम्बी कतार इन सब पर भारी , ………..एक अदद पप्पू -…. लानत है नरेन्द्र , डूब मरो अमित

  34. Ms. Zainab, looks like you are in love with RaGa. Go ahead and propose him but kindly spare us the horror by taking this article cum love letter down from the internet.

  35. Why this author is comparing Rahu Gandhi with PM. Rahul is a jobless politician and he can talk anything, which has no value amongst indian people. As about the world famous economist wth whom he had Interaction on econonomy, they are also free now with whole world is inder lockdown. So forget what Rahul talks.

  36. RAHUL GANDHI IS A DEDICATED POLIITICIAN AND HE LOVES THE PEOPLE OF INDIA. HIS FAMILLY BACKGROUND IS VERY HIGH THEY ALSO SACRIFICED THEIR LIFE FOR US . MADAM INDIRA GANDHI , RAJIV GANDHI HAS DIED FOR THE NATION. …BESIDES MODI HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING FOR THE COUNTRY SIMPLY HE IS A NEWS CHANNEL ACTOR ? I UNDERSTAND NOW , MODI IS SPEAKING LIES AND MAKING FOOL . JUST HE ATTRACTING PEOPLE BY HINDUTVA ? PEOPLE THINK HE IS REAL HINDU THAT IS WHY WE WILL CAST OUR VOTE . NOW MY COUNTRY IS SUFFERING BECAUSE OF MODI GOVT. ..AND THE BLIND SUPPORTER . MANY GANDHI FAMILLY MEMBERS DIED FOR INDIA ? BUT WE FORGET IT VERY SOON. NOW COUNTRY RUNNING BY THE USELESS PEOPLE THOSE WHO ARE NOT DONE ANYTHING FOR INDIA ? IT IS BIG JOKE NOW….WE WILL LOST EVERYTHING WHAT WE GAIN IN LAST 50 YEARS…WE WILL BE POOR COUNTRY IN WORLD VERY SOON IF MODI REMAIN AS A PM FOR ANOTHER FEW YEARS.

    • Can I help it if stupid politicians ignore terrorists right under their nose? Who told Indiraji and Rajivji to embrace terrorists?

  37. Rahul’s interactions were a flop show. If anything they only further solidified that Mr. Pappu is a no-contest against Modi. These kinds of interactions are for journalists and college debates. But Rahul’s presence made them political and washed away any credible advice of Mr Rajan and Mr Bannerjee. In contrast, Sonia scored with her pay for migrants jab at the center.

  38. Bullshit piece from a bullshit newsportal. Starting calling him as Pappu PM. All his publicity stunts will give happiness to his chamchas, leftists, sickulars

  39. Your media house is paid by Congress. I have read many of your articles and all of them are either defaming modi or praising Rahul.

    2024 mei nahi aayega congress.

  40. I wonder who are we to comment. How much are we doing for our village or cities we are living in. Ironically we don’t even know we don’t choose neither PM or CM. We elect MP n MLA n they without our consent choose the so called PM n CM. One should see the individual whom they voted for n who is becoming or made Papu…

    I practice NOTA for the record. So let’s fix things locally

  41. Well, the media never stops in trying to showcase RaGa sometimes as mature, serene, zen like, etc but truth cannot be hidden and pappu can’t become suddenly intellectual.

  42. Just unable to appreciate why Rahul has opted for pure Economist brains such as Raghuram Rajan and Abijith Banejee.
    Rahul should have been politically wise by brain-storming on revival of Indian Economy with the likes of Manmohan, Chidambaram, Jairam Ramesh, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Helot, Sharad Pawar. Their views could have been more pragmatic………. Don’t know when Rahul is going to come out of the bizzare trial and error approaches and responses….

  43. Somebody who is seductively provoking him an insider for sure. He is behaving like an underage kid with a narsicisstic behaviour. Congress should windup and let the Gandhis leave the country. let alternates like AAP, JDU take up larger roles. better to unprint this one.

  45. This is Indian culture to bear person like Rahul. Still his Gang says that we are intolerance. Everyone knows well what is being done in China with such type of Baseless and disturbing elements. India needs Rulings like China to eleminate lot of Anti Nationals. At least 10 years Military Rules as told by Sri Subhash Chandra Bose.

  46. Stop praising jokers. Thanks guy simply lacks the ability to learn. It would be the worst thing for the country to have him as a leader. And,instead of playing around at this time , he should be distributing the huge money his family has accumulated over the years.
    Any I don’t have words to describe the people who are projecting him as a leader opposite Mr Modi……we all understand.

  47. Dear Mr Chetan Sharma. Just answer few questions: 1.why could not Rahul Gandhi led his party to win 2014 and 2019 Parluamant election. So he would have been the PM of the country and would have been calling the shots
    2. Where was he when there were corruptions galore, like CWG, Coalgate, etc ?
    3. Why he failed to lead his party as Congress Chairman?

  48. Our so called journalists are busy in promoting a useless thing after its expiry date with a hope that they will get something from the owner of that product .

    • Give him a chance? Rahul Gandhi says the Congress would have provided Free Travel for the Migrant workers. Why has he not arranged the same facility to give Free Travel by Bus to the Migrant workers in the 3 States where his party is ruling? It is easy to give advice, talk big that being Charitable is noble. But are your States pockets that full that you can afford it? Do the needful for the Migrants from your State coffers and Mr. Modi will find a way to follow to follow your advice.

    • Pappu’s efforts to get painted as an intellectual has always been a terrible failure with his limited competence. Video conferencing with world renowned economists will not help, one of them when he held a powerful position in d country did nothing good, for d country.

  49. The time when the opposition should be standing with the govt shoulder to shoulder they r finding ways to demoralizing it and popping up new issues instead of resolving it . How many congress ruled states r corona free?? . Ask them any logical question they can’t answer without throwing ink on others shame on indian politics .

    The one who thinks that son of a king should be a king that person should give up democracy thoughts. What else makes Rahul Gandhi the successor of Congress 🤔🤔

    • Why can’t questions be asked? Why can’t we ask about the date chosen to enforce lockdown? Did astrologers suggest? The best time to enforce lockdown was around Holi when most of the migrants were at their homes. This could had avoided many human tragedies.

    • If BJP government under Modiji was serious, why Modiji did not come forward to from national government consisting of all CMs and leaders from all parties. A corona war cabinet could have taken Collective decisions in national interest

  50. Selective journalism at his best . Nyay is dum and nutty idea told by mr Shekhar Gupta . All your four point fantesy will remain in your heart. Never reached out of your desk.

  51. Oh! look, another propaganda piece by the media on payroll of the Italian mafia in India. This time they’re trying to paint RaGa as the messiah of Indian economy who will bring his two angels from heaven to release us from the burdens of economic depression but their easily penetrable defensive curtain for presenting a nincompoop as an intellectual will fail miserably because the man can’t calculate basic mathematical problems on the go along with ridiculous speeches and zero leadership skills.

    • You have hit the nail right on spot. This guy’s using his ‘Terminator’ fantasy to present the comeback of a nincompoop. Even if the PM is not a god in himself, his concepts about India as a nation are 100% driven by the need to make India great. Unlike the post 1947 managers till 2014 who carried forward the British plan to keep the nation weak after they’d left. That is why all those who rob India end up settling down in the UK

  52. Congress party only want to grab money for their self motivation and they do not have the love for nation.

  53. Well wishes of Rahul farji Gandhi, like Sonia sena, Ghulams, Shekar Gupta etc must know that Raul Farji Gandhi will never be P M of India no Chance. People are not willing to have a Dumbo, Buffoon, looters, Cheaters, divider as PM. Shekar Gupta should use his good office and get back all the looted and cheated money of poor people from sonia Sena , associates and ghulams from many decades. Shekar guitar you are seen as a power broker not as a journal.

  54. He is a comeback kid. In the past 15 years, I have red maanu articles claiming that Rahul Gandhi has come of age. This one is just one of those articles. Poor fellow is almost 50 and has not come of age yet.

    He could have learnt a thing or two about economics from Dr. Manmohan Singh. All these interviews are not going to help. Continue with your wet dreams. It will never be fulfilled.

  55. I am appalled but not shocked at most of the replies are rahul bashing I was never a supporter of the Cong or BJP .. let us @least once applaud RG for bringing up the issue especially the blue collor issue ( hate the word migrants it’s so degrading ) they build your homes carry loads sell u vegetables ferry u across and we treat them like dirt..!!! I only wonder what is the funds donated to the PM cares fund for… it’s the govt mistake to impose lockdown overnite.. this is it demonetisation !! Its about people management they shold have given 72 hours for people to go back home organise buses transport and not leave them stranded that’s not done its inhumane ..they are our people why are they being treated like cattle oppps wrong word..they are treated with care @ least they are thank god.. u pen liquor shops what for to run the country on pocket change.. Instead of wasting time clapping , playing with your electric switch on n off making the doc n nurses stand outside in a a photo off and shower petals if you want to thank them …keep them alive and safe .. give them the PPE suits .make them ..buy them import them do what ever it takes these are our frontliners, sending them off to fight without anything !! An appeal please keep politics out of these moments . If we cant be of help to these superstars @least stay away , at home till this passes we owe it to them . JAI HIND…

    • Sensible response moving away from personalities. The supporters of the Ruling Party are entirely in their rights to put forth their views on various issues but they shall offer space for others too. Japanese say that “any feedback is a GIFT🎂🎁🎉👑 to the, Receiver”.

    • Not interested in anything anyone with a fake Gandhi surname has to say or offer. Way too much love lost and far too many dynasts seen. As far as his methods and solutions are concerned, any person reading a newspaper on a daily basis could blabber about migrant, economy and pandemic problems. Simply not interested

  56. Rahul is unfit for a PM role. I don’t understand which fool vote for Rahul.rahul and Gandhi family has move out of poltics

  57. More gimmick Rahul try to do, more popular Modi becomes. Rahul is already a rejected leader. If Congress wants to do better, anybody outside the family should take over. The familys creditability is at seabed. The way things are moving now it seems Modi again in 2024.

  59. RahulG is a comedian. His main job during the crisis is to make people of India laugh every day.

    • Modi is a very weakest PM in indian history ….we all are suffering today because of Modi govt and his Bjp supporter …Rahul is doing good thing for corona …but Modi speaking lies ? promise …tv preaching…and evm machine PM

  60. After more than 40 days of lockdown , we are no better than we started , if the PM had in end of January itself taken note of the coming pandemic in our country , then it would be another story , Rahul Gandhi had warned of coming disaster , but arrogant PM and BJP dismissed the warning , the Govt. were busy beating up college girls for and ladies protesting CAA and NRC , then Govt., was busy contesting Delhi elections using every dirty trick , then the Govt., was busy promoting Delhi Riots , were more than 60 people were murdered by Govt., parallely the Govt., was also busy welcoming another baffoon from USA by spending 100 Corores of public money in his welcome rally , and if that was not enough the BJP Govt., was busy in buying 24 MLA’s of Congress party in Madhya Pradesh , the PM was so.. busy in the above activities , where is the poor man got the time to pay attention earlier on th incoming pandemic , infact we should all be grateful and feel under the PM’s obligation that the PM atlast did give authotarian and unilateral instructions for fight against Covid – 19 , now what a terrific decision , after more than 40 days of lockdown , the PM decides to send all the migrants home to their native place , which puts all the citizens who had by following lockdown rules brought the virus in control with many districts and villages not having a single positive case for more than 20 days or more are now at high risk as migrants mostly from red zone areas are being transported to green or orange zone areas , brilliant plan , of course the migrants could have been permitted to go to their native around 19 th March , then the whole country today wouldn’t be at risk again , ofcourse anyone or anybody in BJP is never going to agree to their own facts, how are they going to listen to experts with Rahul Gandhi , as it is our PM does not have this bad habit of listening to others (:

    • Yes Rahul, You are on Right Way. We Respect your Sincerity. The people of India who want
      Existence of Secular Democratic India Will Support you.

    • Either you are dumb or do not read what All otrher countries are to fight corona virus.It is the migrants who decided to go back not Modi.Just grow up and pappu you think knows it All?Pappu has never had a formal education or a real job and keeps going to Italy for vacations?Keep dreaming man?

  61. I am seeing for last 12 years, abput RaGa.
    1. Warrior prince.
    2. Rahul back with bang
    3. Rahul has come of age.

    Despite vicious propaganda by Con-gress party and their supporters, Rahul couldn’t prove himself. He has even lost popular support. Loss in Amethi is a proof of that.
    As a functioning democracy, we need strong and constructive opposition which only Con-gress can provide. But, they have to dump Gandhi-Vadra family and promote good leaders like Sachin Pilot, Capt. Amarinder Singh,. Else, they also will leave this family enterprise and join ruling party like Scindia.

  62. Can any youngster of this country look upon Rahul Gandhi as his idol or a role model . Has he got any qualities which enables him for that ?
    Then what is the purpose in flogging a dead horse ?

    • Rahul is no model. Pogrom executing hate mongering intolerant begot Modi is the model. That is India of the day! !

      • Dr Joji Cherian:

        I so fully agree with you Sir.

        Sadly, for members of the Modi cult, their Delhi University graduate with a pogrom under his belt is unrivalled, unmatched and the only font of leadership in the country. Yes, a man who was formed in an organisation that extolled Adolf Hitler is their hero. But then, walk into any bookstore in India, you will find Hitler’s Mein Kampf being prominently displayed. And the avearge, middle class Indian will tell you that a “benevolent” dictator is what India needs.

        Sad but very true.

      • Rahul? Not fit to be anywhere near PM chair,leave alone s minister.Stop looking at him fir survival. If cong. Wins, it will not be because of Rahul, it will be because people will be fed up if BJP. There are while bunch if people in Congress who can be PM. Leave Rahul alone, He is out of place and it shows in his behaviour and appearance. Stop playing with him for the enjoying benefits of power.

    • You are trying to project a senior clown as a trapeze star. Whatever Rahul may say or do ,people expect only laughter from him.From kids to senior citizens alike,they enjoy his pranks. Modi laughs uncontrollably. At 50+ it will become more and more difficult for him to show himself as as youth leader even with new hair style (or is it a wig?).

  63. Arre, at least tag “sponsored” content properly. Went thru the advertorial before realising what it is.

  64. With all due respect to Mr Rahul Gandhi, we wish him to make comeback again and again till he reaches 100s years and still be called yuvraj of Congress.. The problem of some journalists is they think that they have power to change the opinion of the country by presenting a strong case for Mr Gandhi and Mr Gandhi shows his creditability and credential when he opens his mouth. I am not a bhakt but I apply my mind, I vote for INC on local MLA credential but won’t let Mr Gandhi to be called my PM. If the journalist still thinks that he has the power to change the direction of the wind then he deserves a seat next to Mr Gandhi..

    • The trouble, the fact is that Rahul Gandhi, unlike Modi is not evil. He can not survive where evil prevails over goodness.

      • Modi supporter can not tolerate if some one speak anything about Govt…..in indian History very weak PM is Modi…with fake mangement along with TV news channel….such a fraud Govt . ..because of MODI BHAKTS MOST people will die ? ACCHA DIN ANEWALA HAI ….he betrayed

      • Rahul? Not fit to be anywhere near PM chair,leave alone s minister.Stop looking at him fir survival. If cong. Wins, it will not be because of Rahul, it will be because people will be fed up if BJP. There are while bunch if people in Congress who can be PM. Leave Rahul alone, He is out of place and it shows in his behaviour and appearance. Stop playing with him for the enjoying benefits of power.

  65. I have been analyzing the comments on the Print for the last month (lockdown tha, time tha). The general trend is that if you vilify Mr. Modi even with logical, sound arguments, you’ll get negative comments. If you lionize Mr. RaGa, the result remains the same. I’m not a big fan of our Pappu, but pray tell me one fact that is wrong in this article? None. Yet, most of the comments imply as if the author is a sold-out, without any reasoning. I used to be a bigger Bhakt, but then I started to think. It’s time other Bhakts do so too. Doesn’t matter if you hate RaGa, what matters is that you do not blindly worship someone and to me, that’s more worrying.

  66. your first half of the article reminds me of a chronic repeater in my medical college who had a very rich family background.
    he would turn up for exams twice a year and invariably fail. other sympathisers would always put his predicament exactly the same way and glorify him.
    eventually, he did pass after a decade or so but now looks after his family fortune.

    dear author ,
    be responsible. the nation is in better hands. hope and guide it that tomorrow an even better leader takes over instead of rooting for a nincompoop

      • Rahul? Not fit to be anywhere near PM chair,leave alone s minister.Stop looking at him fir survival. If cong.

Leave Rahul alone, He is out of place and it shows in his behaviour and appearance. Stop playing with him for the enjoying benefits of power.

  67. I am no supporter of Narendra Modi or his political party. Far from it. But I shudder to think of the calamitous disaster this country would have been faced with if the Congress Party had been in the saddle at this time, with Rahul Gandhi – or even Manmohan Singh – as the PM with a retinue of corrupt, incompetent, and indolent Congress persons as ministers, their sole qualification being that they are slavish camp followers of the Gandhi family.
    Raghuram Rajan and Abhijit Bannerjee have lowered their stature by deigning to interview with an intellectually bankrupt Rahul Gandhi.

    • Well said Mr. Ramesh. Every politician & political party has its short comings.
      The Man-In-Charge at the moment has his flaws, but he is a true nationalist, is totally honest and is genuinely trying his best for India. The people of India know this & hence support him.

  68. This is what is called paid journalism. He is all praise without finding even 1 fault, but has enough words to find fault in people who found fault in these interviews. Ok

    • Honest journalism. Republic, Times Now, News 18, India Today. Honest journalists .Arnab goswamy, Rahul Siva Sankar, Navika Kumar, Anand Narasimhan, Rahul Kanwar. They are not only honest but fearless

      • i was very happy during the Monmohan sing Govt …but now india is crying for food,cloth and etc….now fraud Pm is running india. GDP WILL BE ZERO VERY SOON….STOP SUPPORT MODI …WE SEEK NEW LEADER FOR INDIA … PM MODI.IS A BIG LIAR ? HE WIN ELECTION BY MISUSING EVM MACHINE AND ELECTION COMMISSIONER…..NOW INDIA BECOME POOREST COUNTRY IN WORLD BECUASE OF MODI SUPPORTER AND GOVT…..MONMOHAN SING IS BEST PM …MODI IS WORST PM.

  69. Congress is the Best Political Party, and they are Proving it. BJP and its Government had Tryed hard to Defame Rahul Gandhi Calling PAPPU and then, Judging him By this Name.
    But If, We Judge Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi on the Basis of Performance then, Rahul Gandhi is the Best Leader especially During this COVID-19 Crisis.
    People, Will Soon Understand the Reality.

  70. Very difficult for any economist to view post Corona situation. Views should be given and assessed. Every country has its unique way of handling economic crisis. Sitting in foreign land and expressing views is easy but viability has to be assessed by practical methods not by theory. Here lies the dilemma of Rahul Gandhi. He does not know the difference between theory and practice. Such person will not rise above a certain level as he has no practical experience in running a state or municipality. He is very unsuitable as a leader.

  71. What a load of crap. No one loves the tinpot joker, not the poor, not the middle class nor the rich. He lost in his family backyard constituency, remember? We have been witness to his incompetence and repeated failures for the last 20 years, and to hear the Darbari L media try to rally support makes one sick. Do they consider the citizens of this country zombies? And his properties in Mumbai have been seized by ED, due to his mother and his corruption. Can it get any worse? We will doing this country a great favour if this failed corrupt tinpot joker is dumped in a garbage landfill and forgotten.

  72. French hacker Elliot Alderson , more appropriate could have been “French hacker goes by the name ‘Elliot Alderson’ on twitter.

    Elliot Alderson – Its a fictional character from Tv Series Mr. Robot.

  73. First of all I really don’t understand why we..the people of India give undue importance to the antinational dacoit congress, its allies leaders and fake dynast fmly? These rogues should have been in jail but out on bail, they are creating havoc in india by misleading masses, their birth right, supporting super spreaders, tablighis, stone pelters, killers of sadhus. This raul the most dangerous joker of the millennium, must not poke his nose in to the matters of national iñterests. These antinationals bloody insult our jawans and glorify terrorists, it’s high time these anti-national elements must be neutralised for the benefit of India.

  74. Repacking same failed product every time, what a pity on Congress and thier chamchas…

    The print you are shame on journalism , how much you fall down to elevate this clown??

  75. The article establishes two facts 1. Mother’s love is greatest in the world even if it means a the country is on the stake. 2. Journalism needs a lot of money.

  76. I congratulate writer for his independent journalist. At least he has courage to say what is right.
    I remember the day when BJP comes to power and he was defeated in Amethi. It is hard to face the defeat rather humiliation but he accompanied with Randdeep Surjewala to address the press. It is hard to accept defeat the way this gentleman has accepted defeat. I wish him best of luck. May God give him power to achieve his goal.

    • Mr.Raghuram Rajan an eminent Economist giving interview to Intenationlly acclaimed Pappu answering his written questions is not understandable & ridiculous.What RaGa want to do is to improve his position, but he failed, sorry to say personna of Mr.RaghuramRajan declined, as HC if Congress did with most intellectual Economist,financial expert Dr.MMS.

  78. Jainnab ji is this advertorial for Rahul Gandhi?? it could have been better if you had camouflaged it to sound honest…unfortunately , such pieces of literal work deserves front pages of Congress Sandesh! not at Print , unless Print has turned pint to get printed!

  79. Lot of people here are working double time in the IT cell.They are ready to blindly keep following directions since past 6yrs. The inept ability to just destroy anyone if someone is better or talks sense or questions motives.Just put all machinary to simply make him quiet. As its said about us people 80percent of us Indians we are fools believe what the sold out media shows and become followers of the greatest liers.Dnt worry things wont last for long, this will go soon .People will throw them soon and it will come from down below as the discontent mass ,the uneducated class will over turn it all,hunger will make them fight. That time this IT cell wont be of any use.

  80. Enough of your biased post, I think you guys have sold your soul for money, if money is everything for you or if there is some other agenda then you can continue with this shameful behaviour. But when you first thought of taking journalism as a career, you must have thought of being unbiased.
    If you still value true journalism, then you should be equally vocal about any party, country, society or community.

  81. Where do you find these “vandhimaagadhas (court flatteres)” of the dynasty? There seems an unending supply of these in the “Print”. What utter nonsense this whole article is! Simply talking to defunct economists and having zoom sessions do not make a leader, after all the corruption of the dynastic relics!

  82. If RaGa could clean up his act and behave maturely and work with intellectuals like Abhijit Banerjee and Raghuram Rajan, he is a much better choice than NaMo anytime.

  83. If Rahul Gandhi could clean up his act and behave maturely and work with intellectuals like Abhijit Banerjee and Raghuram Rajan, he is a much better choice than Narendra Modi anytime.

  84. RG is only an MP and he has failed to accept any responsibility in the party or in the government in the past and sycophancy at its peak. There are and were good young leaders Mr Sachin pilot , Mr Jyothiraditya scindia and being sidelined only to project prince as future Raja in congress . The article is another attempt to project RAGA.

  85. It’s clear Congress is in a comeback mode. BJP and its end is inevitable.
    No amount of self promotion and defections will help BJP now.

  86. Well why these chamchas want to bring joker back even when he himself want to stay away from politics?? Did not find a new president till now and you want this kid to be PM?? How??

  87. The honesty and sincerity with which Zainab has penned this article can move anyone. Zainab is hoping that by 2024, Rahul will be pitted strongly against Modi. Corona will be a passe by that time but Rahul has lot of time on hand to build up his defenses and offensive arsenal against Modi. Hope history does not repeat third time.

      • Ahmed it seems. It’s okay you can use your real name which is pathetic IT cell coolie. Here’s your 2 bucks for the comment.

  88. Why don’t Mr.Rahul Gandhi start with Congress Ruled States ….people perception about the most corrupted political family and most inefficient Political Leader by just having two casual chats with two economists/ banker can’t claim to be intellectual suddenly.

  89. Thanks to Mr.Zainab Sikandar for his honest & just journalism in the midst of negative journalism which is prevalent at the moment.
    We need an honest & big hearted leader to lead the country from the front who would be empathetic to the miseries of our larger portion of our population.I personally started visualizing a future leader in him who can lead our country to excellence.

    • The columnist is an admirer of a person like all the columnist/journalist of today. Just go to the streets of India and get a reality check. Meeting and saying and talking and lecturing don’t have results. The courage to take decision is important which Rahul Gandhi does not have.

    • ‘Honest and bighearted’. This is exactly what this 50 years tired old man is not. He along with his mother and trusted slaves are mired in the NH newspaper corruption case, and his firm’s properties were sized in Mumbai by the ED. We will be doing our country a great favor if this failed tired old, corrupt, incompetent, tinpot joker, is amputated from the party to stop the spread of the rot. And dispose him with caution as bio hazard

    • R U serious?Bachu is your darling now who has no formal education or training comes up with strange conotation like young people will beat modiji?This DYNASTY will not work for India anytime soon.

    • The dutiful chamcha praises the clueless master no end for all the damage he is doing to himself

    • We want Congress to be back as alternative but is there no other leader than dynastic dumb or his sister or Jijaji? India needs a new leader who has evolved from grassroots.

  90. Most beloved Chamcha of Congress party for all the time, Shekhar Gupta things that India is only bounded within the power of Lutyens Delhi. He is a person who is living in fools paradise! India has travelled since long after the most corrupt periods of Congress regime. Now to foreseen a Congress’s come back which in Gupta’s term is bouncing back is all most impossible.
    To assess the real reactions of the general public, Gupta has to seriously take a go through around the Nation’s every nook & corner of the before making such foolish comment.

    • “More calmer Rahul Gandhi “…..
      ?
      Are you Shakespeare to use such double comparative ?

    • Actually these chamchas of that family can’t leave them and secondly the other leaders of that party who want to come up must isolate those three scoundrels and start a fresh

    • The author of the article is, Zainab Sikander and NOT Shekar Guptha. While you are entirely entitled to disagree with his views, in a democracy constantly denigrating / denouncing anyone with a contract view is not the hallmark of a healthy democracy that we claim our country to be. If an Opposition Party Spokesperson does it, it could be understood as his remit but not a normal citizen. Even in Social and Family Circles this pattern of denigrating and abusing another member for his contrarian views. I appeal to you with folded hands to desist from attacking an individual merely because he has a mind of his own.

  91. Rahul, priyanka and sonia are the three politicians whom i just hate, and gandhi is the word indians should delete forever. Yes forever.

    • It true what ther said. It is highly impossible for the congress party to come back in power by wearing various dresses to fight against BJP., and Narendra Modi. He came to power from a simple life to the highest position in india which was accepted by world.
      First of all the congress party and its leaders and its allies are corrupted which is proved beyond doubt.

      There was a time the people used to vote for congress just showing the “HAND”
      In ballet paper. Now people are educated,media give full details.
      India will rule by BJP till 2019.
      Any way there is nothing wrong in dreaming. No cost is involved.

    • Haa there you are! Hating those politicians is your thing but gandhi. I see a shade of godse in there lady. Hope you correct.

      • Get an education man. Rahul is a Gandhe which is the Parsi surname of his grandfather Feroz Gandhe. Nothing remotely connected to Mahatma Gandhi or Ghodse. Nehru’ s family to the present generation are charlatans, cheats and more. They are in no way related to Mahatma Gandhi

  92. Rahul, priyanka and sonia are the three politicians whom i just hate, and gandhi is the word indians should delete forever.

  93. I think Capt Amrinder Singh is a much more seasoned politician . He single handed ly won Punjab in the last Gen Election amidst a Modi wave .But Congy bhakts of the Family will never allow him to become a prime ministerial candidate.

  94. I am very surprises how can these two learned can take aside of this jocker. If they happened to join this jocker, then these learned competencies and capabilities are questioned. If they join this jocker, it would be their blunder for their rest of their remaining life. All the best for these two gentlemens.

  95. These Congress leaders are just made for corruption,these Gandhi’s can’t see anything but money.
    In such a pandemic where the BJP government is aiding state governments these Gandhi’s want to make money of it especially in Mumbai and so is so called Uddhav Thackeray who’s so shameless that he when so called his people of Maharashtra are suffering from the virus he’s busy making money.
    When the PM is busy holding conferences with the CM’s this Uddhav is just hopelessly sitting all alone in his living room without a pen paper without his health officials and other important officials as if the conference is just a silly get together and a meagre time pass for him where just his presence is enough.
    Shame on you Congress and alliance.

  96. Try as you might in projecting dynast Rahul as a PM material…people are unlikely to buy your fairy tales.

  97. First of all,I would like to thank Mr.Zainab Sikandar.Inspite of negative journalism prevalant at the moment,Mr.Sikandar has stood out & has shown the way – what honest journalism is !.
    I fully agree with his observation about Mr. Rahul Gandhi.I am so optimistic,that I have started visualising future leader in Mr.Gandhi.we don’t want scholar or brilliant orator to lead the country.We need an honest & big hearted leader who will be empathetic to the miseries of large population of our countrymen. Under his leadership country will blossom into prosperity.

  98. Article likhne wali madam ki khushi ka thikana nahi. Look down from your ivory tower madam people dont care about that incompetent guy i don’t understand you do you guys desperately want to shove him down the indian masses throats. are you guys so incompetant to find an alternate meritorious voice who can represent your ideology and replace this incompetent and the actual flag bearer of nepotism.

  99. This continues to be image building .Rahul has never been able to perform .he has no administrative experience in spite of opportunities available in the past .whole energy was used to abuse and denigrate th prime minister .he may get in touch with intellectuals but it is not going to enhance his abilities .it is more of image building .he lacks capability ,he lacks oratorical skills and also lacks organisational quality .it is now do or die situation

  100. Surprised ! How long paaltu darbaaries of Gandhies like” the Print” are making futile efforts for “THE COME BACK”???
    And how many times people kick their ass???

  101. I really like this “reporter”commitment to their bread/ butter… I mean… RaGa…. No matter how low he goes, they do not mind to lift him. Such articles clearly help to identify paid promotion / native advertising.

  102. Mam,
    Reading comments on your article was more enriching than the article itself.

    Thanks guys for calling it out. Loved it.

  103. Rahul Gandhi is doing a commentable job and on the other hand the BJP government is incompetent to lead it’s netizens at this hour.

  104. What a funny news RGa Gandhi family dentistry Prince.
    Now a days certain Electronic midia and print media including ABP group they are promoting Gandhi family dentistry for power.
    This Gandhi family Prince always entertainer let him do no one bothered Rahul Gandhi what he says or does now lockdown schedule he can not travel abroad that’s why some time mother and sister saying and repeat again son to show others he will out of the pictures.
    We should enjoy with out comments like children are trying entertaine attract let him do just enjoy.

    • Please learn English n then come to comment on a English write up. Ye hinglish nahi hai. Shame

  105. A man is known by the company he keeps.
    So in all ways either RaGa is on the same level as that of the two economists, a migrant aid pack and an ethical hacker Or
    They are on the same level as RaGa.
    If both the above are not correct then the entire bunch of them is Just CHIPKU, in search of opportunity to further our intrests.

  106. For unprecedented corona crisis & it’s aftermath devastation on already hollowed out economy, we require consultative approach where leader take on board experts & all stake holder. Rahul Gandhi has that approach & willing to listen which is very crucial at this juncture. While all knowing authoritative noncoversant approach epitomised by our prime minister would be detrimental & root of our struggling economy prior to corona.
    Although Rahul Gandhi isn’t liked by many of middle class due to his unwillingness to hate anyone particularly minorities would definitely remain better choice. If our middle class really love our country then they should create compulsion for prime minister to change his approach as they will be the largestbeneficiary of it at the end. In dislike of Rahul Gandhi they are doibg nothing but digging their own grave.

    • Dear Mr Chetan Sharma. Just answer few questions: 1.why could not Rahul Gandhi led his party to win 2014 and 2019 Parluamant election. So he would have been the PM of the country and would have been calling the shots
      2. Where was he when there were corruptions galore, like CWG, Coalgate, etc ?
      3. Why he failed to lead his party as Congress Chairman?

  107. Yeah he surely won’t give up…he will continue with his ideas ..how to demoralised government, front line warriors and citizens..
    If he really cares about crisis….he should donate his looted wealth…and stop criticising.
    But he won’t..
    Mr so called Gandhi…it’s time for you to stop your nonsensical behaviour…or it’s a final nail on your Congress coffin. 😡

  108. So what if you have discussed with 2 economists. Last 16 years he was with one of the best economist in the country, Mr. Manmohan Singh and learnt nothing. Stop praising him to the skies and leave alone. All my academic life I was interacting with hundreds of economists but I don’t claim that I have become expert in state craft and aspire to become prime minister when you know you know you are not even fit to be sarpanch for village panchayat

  109. I think you were either paid loads of money or high on drugs when you decided to write this article.Just having good vocab and writing skills doesn’t make you intelligent ..Good journalism means writing facts and standing for right things.

  110. Your article starts “……and still care enough to show up for your country”.
    It should read thus : “……and still care enough to show up for your family business”.

    RahulG DOESNOT have the good of the country at heart. He is pulling a CON-JOB for himself, MomG & SisterG & bro-in-lawG.

  111. Joker is back. He can never learn lesson in his entire life. Because to learn one must have brain which is missing in him. I am pity on the rest of the congress leaders who if isolate that family can come up but don’t have guts to do so. As long as they go on hatching the tails of that family they can’t come up as national party anymore

  112. Since is article is being written just a day after Mother’s Day, you should have written about the support that Shri Rahul Gandhi is getting from his mother. If is was not for her and the rabid anti BJP sections of the media, the middle aged dynast would have been out of circulation. Be amazed.

  113. Important thing to note whenever the ‘PRINCE ‘ says something anti CAA protestors, SUPPORTERS of rioters and self declared victims get very excited and become his loudspeakers.

  114. “He keeps coming back with his empathy as well as his willingness to find viable solutions to pressing issues induced by the pandemic: an economy in doldrums, a huge migrant workers’ problem that’s slowly turned into a humanitarian crisis as well as transparency of the government’s Arogya Setu app being used to map Covid positive patients. ”

    ???

    It’s as if the author thinks they conjure up anything and get away an attempt to generate clicks.

    RG coming back with “empathy”?

    His willingness to come up with solutions? You mean no one else is trying to do that right now?

    Transparency with an app that tracks your movements and of those you’ve interacted with?

    How does the author propose we track people for the purposes of surveillance without a breach in privacy?

  115. This is another article which, again, means Rahul Gandhi has come of age.

    We are tired of reading articles like these time and again. The so called ‘suggestions’ of Rahul Gandhi were being spoken by every tom dick and harry of the world economic society. There is nothing new. In fact he is bringing in his Nyay topic in his interactions.

    Finally, stop mentioning him as kid. I see how ppl like you want to be eternally young until he becomes the PM.

  116. This is another article which, again, means Rahul Gandhi has come of age.

    We are tired of reading articles like these time and again. The so called ‘suggestions’ of Rahul Gandhi were being spoken by every tom dick and harry of the world economic society. There is nothing new. In fact he is bringing in his Nyay topic in his interactions.

    Finally, stop mentioning him as kid. I see how ppl like you want to be eternally young until he becomes the PM.

  117. I have always maintained that there is only one difference between the present PM and RG – RG still has the ability to feel shame, the PM has lost it. Sure there are other superficial differences – great orator, master strategist, rich patrons, supportive media and public trust to name a few but these are all ethereal – they are not permanent, they can be lost as easily as they are gained.
    This lockdown has given us a great opportunity to observe how this difference plays out. It should have been clear that total lockdown wasn’t working in eliminating coronavirus but it was eroding our economic strength vastly – strategy should have changed after the first one. But to look macho, it continued into 2 more needless lockdowns – mistakes were made and everyone has to now pay a price. If RG was the PM and if he would have made a mistake, atleast the plight of our countrymen would have moved him to course correction much earlier – macho man on the other hand, hasn’t shown his face to us since 14 Apr.
    Our country is at an inflection point. By now most of us must have realised that we are no superpower – we need to take care of a large number of very poor people, our middle-class also needs help often. We just can’t afford a PM with delusions of grandeur any more, we need a more humane person on the job, someone who really cares, someone who is willing to learn, someone who is willing to acknowledge mistakes and course correct if needed.
    Someone who points out only at others as cause for all our problems isn’t going to be solving them – he is only going to get us angry, divided and at war with ourselves. If we need to be angry, divided and at war with ourselves we need NaMo. If we need to be united and at peace so that we can start solving our immense problems we need RaGa – he is the only option which has not been tainted with the poison of blaming others for our problems.

    • I fully agree,RG is better human being to deal with citizen, especially to protect poor.
      He must be given an opportunity to deliver goods without any hate.

    • “we need RAGA”- Oh no, pl. It is understandable that some people are not happy because Indian death figure has not over taken Spain, Italy, US, UK. But to imagine Rahul as PM!!!. No sir, no.
      It is so easy to say lockdown should not have been extended. Anyone else also suggested? No. In fact great leader Chidambaram is angry that it did not start sooner. Great leader Rahul also has been saying that. Today Telengana and Andhra CMs want it to be further extended. We have also your opinion that it should have stopped at the 1st.
      So easy. It is some one else’s responsibility.

  118. A Donkey will remain a donkey no matter how hard the leftist toilet papers like the print,the quint,the scroll,the wire advertise it.

  119. The super clown of the century is trying to come back for entertaining the country.As usual hired writers have also started besting drum.But no body takes the clown even for free entertainment.

  120. Does talking with an economist make a proven failure an economist?? The author indicates so. So talking with a Nobel Prize winner makes you a NOBEL LAUREATE??? YES; proudly indicates Zainab Sikandar, trying different ways to build up a walking, talking political disaster called Raul Vinci. The author, desperately speaking for the Congress Party but trying to show political distancing, talks of this joker as the “Come Back Kid”, as of he is a teenager on a rave BangCock visit. No amount of payments, no amount of prejudiced write ups by The Lutyens media can make this joker eligible for the position of a clerk in any Government organization. I congratulate the Print, Zainab Sikandar and this namby pamby, thumb sucking 50 year old Joker for forming a mutual benefit society.

  121. Hollow and empty article. Doesn’t tell anything other than glorify a failed polititian. You will never succeed. there is talent….

  122. No point in wasting your time Pappu. Every one knows that those videos are doctored.
    Insted get serious take to comedy. You will atleast get paid for your STUPIDITY.

  123. Why some journalists think a dead corpse can be brought back to life by some blood transfusion ? RG and Congress party are politically dead corpse. Revival of Congress party and acceptance of RG as the PM of India by the voters of India are too far-fetched imagination by the group of journalists out of contact with political reality outside their drawing rooms. The election victory or defeat for incumbent central Government depends on the perception
    and proof of mis governance, prevalence of wide spread corruption at higher levels, blatant failure in defending country s boarders from external threats, hyper inflation and shortage of essentials goods for day to day living , internal disturbances spread by the agitating vested interests, wide spread unemployment and unrest feeling in younger generation voters etc. Does Modi or his Government shows these sign of these type of listed infirmities or is likely to show in coming months or years. ? Is Modi and his government is infirm in setting the narrative and agenda favorable to it in 2023, 2024 before the start of election process ? No , BIG NO, next election too will be fought on the election agenda set by Modi Ji and his party BJP. Congress or its supporting journalists have very little role to play. They can keep on making small pin pricks but hurting the body politics by inflicting fatal injury seems FAR REMOTE . So they can keep on doing their job for which they are paid for . But Modi is there, Will be there in 2024 and BJP will be there in 2029 onwards , WHERE THEY ARE TODAY.

  124. It is good that the views are personal, because it has not an iota of analysis, only psychopancy

  125. This writer is frivolous. Little wonder that she takes Rahul Gandhi’s antics seriously. Even with the best advisors behind him, he is simply not capable of thinking beyond doles, NYAY etc. Will holding press conferences make Modi a preferrable PM?
