Rahul Gandhi Berkeley speech: Congress VP has more often than not found flaws in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ideology, decision-making ability, the way of running the government. Often we heard the Congress Vice President slamming the PM for various acts of omission and commission. On Tuesday, Rahul surprised everyone by heaping praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s communication skills, saying he is much better than him. “Narendra Modi has certain skills and is a very good communicator,” Rahul said while addressing students of the prestigious University of California, Berkeley on ‘India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward’. He also said PM Modi’s messaging ability is very effective and subtle as he knows how to give a message to 3-4 different groups in a crowd. He, however, did take a dig at PM Modi, saying “What I sense is he doesn’t converse with people he works with, even members of Parliament and BJP tell me that”.
Gandhi yesterday began his two-week visit to the US during which he will interact with global thinkers and political leaders, and address overseas Indians as part of an outreach initiative by his party. During his trip to the US, he said, Gandhi will also engage with the Indian diaspora with the purpose of making them a part in India’s development.
