Rahul Gandhi Berkeley speech: Congress Vice President is being mocked and even blasted by social media users. You must be wondering why! The reason is a statement given by Rahul Gandhi on India and dynasty politics in the country. Gandhi while attending a programme at UC Berkeley in the US made a statement that ‘most of India runs on dynasty politics’. He even cited some ‘examples’ like Akhilesh Yadav, MK Stalin, Anurag Thakur, Abhishek Bachchan and Ambani too. Rahul Gandhi said, “Most of the country runs like this, so don’t go after me, Akhilesh Yadav a dynast, Mr Stalin a dynast, Mr Dhumal’s son a dynast.”. Rahul added that even Abhishek Bachchan is a dynast, also Ambani, ‘that’s how the entire country is running’.
Soon after Rahul made the statement, it went viral and social media erupted to mock, blast and sarcastically slam him. Here are some of the reactions:-

That’s a big blot on Congress. The so called future leader even doesn’t know how to respond such questions. #Congress Mukt Bharat expected.

Dynast system should ended in democracy.
Ability should be introduced in democracy.

Comfort in numbers. Shameless people who would not get a good 9 to 5 job if not for nepotism and their ancestry

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi is in the US, where he will interact with global thinkers, political leaders and overseas Indians on international, economic and technology issues.
Gandhi, 47, began his nearly two-week trip to the US with an address at the University of California, Berkeley, on the subject India at 70 — Reflections on the Path forward.
His great grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, delivered a speech at Berkeley in 1949.
Gandhi will also address a gathering at the Princeton University.
