Rahul Gandhi compares ‘evil leader’ Narendra Modi with Mao


After comparing RSS with SIMI, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has created yet another controversy when he dubbed Modi as an “evil leader” like Mao.

He was replying to questions raised by students who were attending his programme in Ahmedabad on Friday.

The interaction turned stormy when Rahul made some sharp remarks on Modi and said that his development is coming at the cost of a particular community. He then said that the blemish of Godhra incident will not fade away even if Modi does great work.

“Many an evil leaders have done great developmental work.” He then went on to compare Modi with Chinese leader Mao Zedong.

Some of the participants of the students’ meet who were uncomfortable with criticism of Modi by Rahul then confronted him with questions about how justified was his effort to bring democracy within the Congress party, when he himself has risen to power because of dynastic politics. “I have paid a huge cost for it… my father is my role model who wanted to change the system and he had to pay the price,” he said.

Some students reportedly told Rahul that Gujarat was now a much better place than what it was immediately after the 2002 riots. Perceiving the mood of the audience, local leaders wound up the session in a hurry.

Some students also complained that the organisers snatched away mikes from them.Rahul made a swift exit without entering into a debate with the students over Modi.
