New Delhi, Oct 9: Rahul Gandhi, Vice President of the Congress party, has become a new target on micro-blogging site -- Twitter. This time people of the country targeted the young leader for his controversial comment during an election campaign in Delhi on Tuesday, Oct 8.
Addressing two back-to-back functions in the national capital on the empowerment of Dalits, Rahul asserted that the community needs the "escape velocity of Jupiter" to achieve success. The young Gandhi family scion also claimed that other political parties will lose the 2014 Lok Sabha elections as they had ignored the Dalits, never bothered to go to their homes or hold their hands and understand their problems.
Reaching out to the Dalits with the assembly elections and the general elections in mind, Gandhi also urged for more representation for the community in the party. Turning to astronomy, Rahul Gandhi said the Dalit community needs the escape velocity of Jupiter to achieve success.
