Rahul Gandhi has really upped his political game. The Congress Vice President has not only sharpened his attack on the ruling NDA government, but also has added much nuance to his narrative.
It seems that success of Gujarat campaign was too good to be true. Gandhi, who is known for his infamous gaffes, added another one to his list when he accidentally walked in women’s toilet in Chhota Udepur.
The Gandhi scion was in the Gujarat district to hold a ‘Samvad’ session with young people.
Gandhi entered the women’s restroom while on his way out of the town hall at the event. According to reports, there was no sign or symbol differentiating between men and women’s toilet.
The photos that went viral after the incident showed a poster in Gujarati that read ‘Mahilao Mate Shauchalya’.
According to an India Today report, the moment Rahul Gandhi realised the blunder, he came out and started laughing.
Gandhi has always been in news for his speech gaffes.
In August, the Congress vice president refereed Indira Canteens in Bangalore as Amma canteen during the launch event.
Last year, he spoke about ‘aloo ki factory’ during a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Firozabad. “You all are demanding a potato factory in your area, but you should understand I am an opposition leader. I can put pressure on the government, but cannot take the decision. I cannot open a potato factory for farmers,” he had said.
But the most famous or rather infamous gaffe was when he was made the Congress Vice President in 2013.
During a speech, he spoke about how his mother Sonia Gandhi woke him up at 1 am and said ‘This morning, I got up at night.’
