In a rare gesture, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi who often attacks PM Narendra Modi over a number of issues has now praised him. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has given a big statement during an interactive session at the University of California in Berkeley. Rahul Gandhi has remarked that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a ‘very good communicator, much better than me’, according to a report in IANS. “He (Modi) has certain skills.He is a very good communicator..probably much better than me. He understands how to give a message to three or four different groups in a crowd. So, his messaging ability is very subtle and effective,” Gandhi said at the University of California in Berkeley.
Earlier, addressing a programme at the UC Berkeley, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had said that dynasties are commonplace in India, from politics to business, and stressed that a person’s capabilities are more important than pedigree.
His comments in the US set off a chorus of protest by the BJP in India with Union Minister Smriti Irani calling him a “failed dynast” and a failed politician.
Speaking at the University of California, Berkeley, Gandhi had also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of divisive politics, creating space for terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and ruining the economy.
