New Delhi: Trolls had a field day on Monday after Rahul Gandhi, during a rally, said that the person who founded Coca-Cola used to sell ‘Shikanji’ in America, while the founder of McDonald’s used to run a ‘dhaba’in the US.
Considering he pitches himself as the next Prime Minister of India, it’s a little sad (but funny too) that we are writing this article.
Here are 10 other times Rahul, also known as ‘Buddhu’ or ‘Pappu’ by his critics, goofed up during his speech:
‘Poverty is a state of mind’
In one of his speeches, Rahul had said that poverty is nothing else but a state of mind. You should not relate it with the scarcity of food or materialistic things. Confidence is the key to overcoming poverty.
‘We can stop 99% of the terrorism, but 1% might get through’
After the 2011 terror attacks in Mumbai, the Congress vice-president paid condolences to the victims. He said that his government can stop 99% of the terrorism, but 1% error might slip through.
‘Politics is in your shirts, it is in your pants’
During a meeting with youth in Punjab he tried to encourage them to join politics and just like many other times, he tripped with this statement – Politics is in your shirts, it is in your pants.

‘India is a beehive’

“I am a pilot and I read the curriculum which mentioned ‘How to drop mails from plane?'”
During the CII meet, while talking about the education system in India, Rahul Gandhi said,” I am a pilot and when I was given the curriculum, it was written how to drop mails from a plane, has anybody ever received any mail.” We have no idea what this means, but he said it.
