Rahul Gandhi jumps the gun in sensitive issues

03 May 2018

Claim

On March 20, 2018 Rahul Gandhi had tweeted, “When the RSS & BJP encouraged the tearing down of Lenin statues in Tripura, they signalled their cadres to destroy statues of those who opposed their ideology, like Periyar, the great social reformer who fought for the Dalits. His statue too was destroyed today in Tamil Nadu.”

Fact

The incident had nothing to do with BJP and RSS. As this report revealed, a CRPF jawan who was under treatment for Schizophrenia and was on a 30-day leave when the incident happened had been arrested for the misdeed.

This apparently shows, how Rahul Gandhi indulges in throwing allegations against political opponents in socially sensitive matters.
