New Delhi: After giving the second interview of his political career on Aaj Tak, insiders from within the Rahul Gandhi camp have revealed that Mr. Gandhi has been using the Rs. 9 lakh loan granted to him by his mother for interview training from a CAT coaching institute.
The speculation had already begun after Mr. Gandhi was uncharacteristically self assured during the interview and much more shockingly, did not make any references to “Jupiter”, “beehive” or “escape velocity”.
“Yes, yes he has been using the loan to go to a CAT training institute for GDPI (Group Discussion & Personal Interview) training,” a source close to Mr. Gandhi said, on condition of anonymity. “They have been teaching him about the economy, current affairs, general knowledge, etc. so that he can give better interviews.”
The Aaj Tak interview, however, led to widespread disappointment and angry reactions from Indian citizens.
“I sacrificed watching Comedy Nights with Kapil for this interview but it was not nearly funny enough this time,” Tadapit Kumar, a pensioner based in Delhi said. “What is the point of Rahul Gandhi if he does not make funny remarks? That is his whole space in Indian politics.”
