India Arun Jaitley questions Rahul Gandhi's wisdom

Arun Jaitley questions Rahul Gandhi’s wisdom

“The great grandson of the man who authored ‘The Discovery of India’ could with his customary inaccuracies one day give to this country his monumental work on ‘The Rediscovery of Coca Cola’,” Jaitley said

New Delhi: In a scathing attack on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday questioned his wisdom, saying that it has to be acquired through learning and cannot be inherited.
Jaitley took the jibe at Gandhi in a Facebook post, lambasting the Congress chief for his anti-Narendra Modi tirade. The finance minister also took a dig at the Congress party for its obsession for Narendra Modi.

Jaitley said Gandhi prefers the “Gobbelian traditions to say the exact opposite” while observing that the UPA government during 2008-2014 indiscriminately lent money through banks to 15 big loan defaulters.

Jaitley said the Congress party has become “ideologyless” because its “only obsession is a person called Narendra Modi”. Gandhi has been attacking the BJP government for waiving loans of Rs 2.5 lakh crore by big corporates, and also criticising the Mudra Yojana. 

“For a President of a national party not to understand this basic procedure of bank functioning should be a matter of concern to the entire party as also the country. In dynastic parties political positions are heritable. Unfortunately, wisdom is not heritable. It has to be acquired through learning,” he said in a post titled ‘Is Congress Becoming Ideologyless? Is Anti-Modism it’s only ideology?’

Gandhi earlier this week cited the examples of successful American entrepreneurs to attack Modi’s policies and described the founder of Coca-Cola as a ‘shikanji seller’ and that of McDonald’s a ‘dhaba wala’.

“The great grandson of the man who authored ‘The Discovery of India’ could with his customary inaccuracies one day give to this country his monumental work on ‘The Rediscovery of Coca Cola’,” Jaitley said.

He further said that there is no ideological pattern in Gandhi’s statements. “Ignorance with anti-Modism is a common thread”, he said.

However, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said Jaitley’s blogs are a clear case of finding lost political relevance by “churning unadulterated lies”.

He alleged that the “minister without a portfolio” is desperately trying to “outwit his juniors” who have surpassed ahead to “impress the Badshah by weaving blatant lies and falsehood”.

Surjewala dubbed Jaitley as the “worst” Finance minister in India’s history who pushed a resilient Indian into an unprecedented financial gloom.

The economy under Jaitley has become the biggest NPA for the country, he said.

“Myopic memory, selective amnesia and weaving lies have become the characteristic style of Modi government’s minister without a portfolio Arun Jaitley.

“We understand his desperation of seeking political relevance by writing hollow rhetoric, unadulterated falsehood and plain distortion of facts through his hollow blog,” the Congress leader said in a statement.
