Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi Friday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying the PM believes he can run the country on his own. He also alleged that the BJP does not believe in the democratic processes although it participates in the elections.

“The Prime Minister thinks he can run the country single-handedly and he deeply believes in that. This can never happen. This country will be run by its people. And the poor of the country will give direction to this country,” Rahul said addressing an Youth Congress event hours after he led protests against the government in Parliament.

Rahul said the BJP does not believe in democratic processes. “Our opponents does not believe in democratic process. They do fight elections but they believe the democratic process is useless. Today, when (Mallikarjun) Kharge was speaking in Lok Sabha, his microphone was switched off… During our time, we never did that. The Opposition was allowed to speak and put across their view points,” he said.

Addressing the Youth Congress alumni meet, attended by all past national and state presidents and office bearers, Rahul said the Congress had made a come back after the defeats in 1977 and 1989.

Rahul made a strong pitch for a bigger political role for youths. “You are the testimony of Youth Congress’s struggle. My job is to get Youth Congress leaders into the parent Congress,” he added.

          Oh.. GOD!!! give him some mind so that he uses for himself. Let him marry some one and live with happiness and allow this country people to have some peace.Politics is not meant for Rahul hi. It is a kind of wine which Rahul cannot digest. Imagine what will happen to a forest if you leave a drunken monkey in a forest....So Rahul baba keep yourself away from politics.

            What ever Rahul hi has said for the Indian PM is actually applicable to his ownself.He should first disband his silly dynasty that thinks Indians as fools.He should at least for now accept that he and his mother have been shown their place by the voters of India. Only 40 seats in the Parliament and not even 50stead of being jealous of the PM it is better to do something constructive. Something really constructive.
