Congress Vice President Rahul's interview brought criticism for him. Many believe that it has given Rahul the dubious distinction of being a "dodger" unable to face real issues.
BJP leader and leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha -- Arun Jaitley said, "Arnab Goswami's interview with Rahul Gandhi was a lesson for the interviewer. There are advantages in letting the guest speak. By speaking the guest may even expose his own inadequacies."
During the interview with Goswami, Rahul said, "I am being attacked because people see me as a man who is not here to fight a superficial battle. They find a threat in me."
