Arun Jaitley’s dig at Rahul Gandhi; Dynasts have illusion of own abilities

New Delhi: Senior BJP leader and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday said dynasts have illusion of own abilities and Congress President Rahul Gandhi is no exception so much so that “he challenges Prime Minister Modi, the greatest communicators of his times, for a public debate.”

“He comes out with outrageous ideas about security, economy and social issues and believes that his views have found mass acceptability. With PM’s personal acceptability ratings today being close to 70%, Rahul proclaims that he is dead sure that Modi is very unpopular.

The irony of every dynast is that he buys his own propaganda even if there are not too many others willing to accept it.” Pointing out that Rahul’s attitude is at complete variation with the traditional Congress way of doing things, he said: “His revenge against PM Modi may not succeed. It may well turn out to be a revenge against the Congress.”

Noting that dynasts have a sense of entitlement to believe they were born to rule, Jaitley said Gandhis suffer from this sense of entitlement. The 2014 election was an utter shock to them to lose to a person of modest origins and it took more than three years to get out of that shock of the rout.

Jaitley accused Rahul of concocting falsehoods, as in the Rafale case, and start believing own falsehood to be true and eventually dreams that the falsehood has destroyed his opponent. “He does not gauge public opinion. He only talks but does not listen. Such people surround themselves with advisors who have also tactically learnt to only give good news to the dynast.”
