New Delhi: What Rahul Gandhi meant to say was”Kumbha Ram”, as in the Kumbha Ram Arya Lift Canal project. How hard could it have been, you ask?
Well, here’s what he said: “Kumbhakaran Lift Yojana.” And Twitter was in splits. The Congress president’s latest public gaffe came on the campaign trail in Rajasthan, where a state election will be held Friday.
Kumbhakaran, a character in the Hindu epic Ramayan, is the brother of the demon-king Raavan. Videos show that Rahul Gandhi was immediately corrected by someone off camera. The thing which is more shocking is how the bodyguards who stand behind Rahul are able to control their laughter and stay expressionless throughout his goofups at different election rallies.
Faking News team asked Shwetank Srivastava who has been with Rahul since last 10 years and he had this to say,” Sir, see at first when he was making mistakes in speech, we let it go as many politicians do it at start of their career. But when the mistakes became frequent we had to find a solution which could keep me and my team standing expressionless, because if we laugh at any mistake then our jobs will be on the line. I want to thank Katrina Kaif ji and Arjun Rampal ji to spare sometime with us and teach us the nuances of being expressionless throughout the course of a speech or an event.
Our team is trying to contact Arjun Rampal and Katrina Kaif to confirm the story.
