‘Illiterate Rahul about to be dumped on country’
New Delhi: Noted criminal lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Tuesday questioned Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi`s potential as a leader, saying the latter is an ``illiterate`` who is about to be dumped on this country.
"On one side, you have Mr. Gadkari who brackets Swami Vivekananda with Dawood. On the other side, our future Prime Minister, who is about to be dumped on this country, does not know the difference between Kargil and FDI," he said.
Jethmalani said that he has made no secret of the fact that he considers Rahul Gandhi to be an ``illiterate``.
"What is his educational qualification? Have you ever heard one quotable quote from this man during the last ten years?" he asked.
Asserting that Lal Bahadur Shashtri, ``a Congress man``, was the greatest Prime Minister of India according to him, Jethmalani said ``it seems that there is no brave voice left in the Congress Party``.
"It only consists of psycho funds and flatterers who are serving a corrupt family. It is this conflict, which keeps me in politics. I owe it to the nation," he added.
Jethmalani also took on the media, saying ``large sections of the press have become party people``. (ANI)
