Indian Political Circus : The Pappu of India

If Looney Tunes and Tazzos are still alive in the Indian political sphere, thanks to trolls and memes that cite the immaturity and puerile behavior of Mr. Rahul Gandhi aka Pappu of India (if you don’t trust us,search Google)

1434712219rahul10The 44-year old politician has gained immense popularity not due to his political acumen but for his frivolity and “Amul Baby” demeanor.  The recent photo that went viral on the social media shows Mr. Gandhi holding white sheets of paper scribbled with bullet points in capital letters. And he was holding this ‘cheat-sheet’ or to say furre while arguing over the Lalit Modi row against Sushma Swaraj and even used those points in the same way as they were written.


With a history of mondegreens and half-baked proclamations, Rahul Gandhi hasn’t really given up.  He challenges trending-rahul-gandhi-jokes-53202bc4baff0the “suit-boot ki sarkar” and wishes to replace it by “kurta-pyjama aur chappal ki sarkar“. As if, the white linen would guarantee a cleaner government–white clothes,hence a whiter government. Probably, his donning of a white kurta at almost every occasion roots from this reason. Moreover, the hypocrisy of such statements is that Rahul Gandhi belongs to a dynasty which is known for its “suit-boot” status and inherited wealth instead of earned wealth.

Gandhi believes that “poverty is a state of mind.It does not mean scarcity of food, money or material things. If one possesses self-confidence then we can overcome poverty.”  When statements like these come from the Vice-president of Congress, one ought to hurl the BPL (Below Poverty Line) statistics on him.

And when it comes to his commendable general knowledge, Rahul Gandhi can face no competition. The Gandhi scion claims that India is bigger than US and Europe put together.  And his quotes such as-“I am not averse to politics, but that does not mean that I am going to join politics”  is made when he’s a politician born in a political milieu and breathes as a Vice-president of Congress.


The Congress politician is usually accompanied with his mother,which has resulted into various comic trolls about him being a ‘mamma’s boy’ or accused by BJP politicians for not growing out his diaper years.


44 years and counting, Rahul Gandhi is eternally young and spirited when it comes to rallies and taking small lunch outings with farmers and their families. If he is the future face of India, then kindly declare a STATE of EMERGENCY as soon as possible.
