Talking to the reporters at a mass marriage function ,Majithia said: “It exposed the immaturity level of a person,who was being propagated by the Congress as ‘candidate’ for the the post of prime minister.”

Rahul at a function of Panjab University in Chandigarh recently had claimed that seven out of ten youths in the state are drug addicts which later sparked a row.
