Congress said on Friday that a sponsored agenda was underway on the issue amid media debate over comments made in the context of former US President Barack Obama in the context of Rahul Gandhi. Party chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala also said Congress was not commenting on the opinion expressed in one person’s book.
He tweeted: “I would like to humbly remind some very enthusiastic friends of the media who run the Sponsored Agenda that we do not comment on the opinion expressed by a person in a book.” In the past, too, a leader has been called a “psychopath” and “master divider” by people and agencies. We haven’t even seen those comments.
Significantly, former US President Obama said in his memoirs that Congressman Rahul Gandhi had the qualities of a “nervous and clueless” student who wanted to impress his teacher but who “got the hang of it.” There is a lack of capacity and passion.
The New York Times reviewed Obama’s memoir “A Promised Land”. In this, the former president also spoke on other topics besides political leaders around the world.
