Rahul Gandhi was martyred
Bangalore, May 10: A Congress leader in Haryana embarrassed his party and its workers while speaking in an election rally last month. The leader during his address said: "A number of Congress leaders gave their lives for the nation's independence. Among the martyred were Indira Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and many others..." At this, someone interrupted to say that Rahul Gandhi is still alive. The embarrassed speaker then openly apologised for his goof-up.

The video about this incident was posted on Youtube in April.

The Congress party is known for its culture of sycophancy but what could have been carried out smoothly three or four decades ago without causing any big ripple in public life has become a bit difficult in today's time, thanks to the 24X7 surveillance of the media.

Someone interrupted as the leader spoke on, saying Rahul is still alive!

This Congress leader embarrassed himself, his party and also his leaders. But will the Congress, which is known for its culture of loyalty towards the first family throughout the rank and file, have a will to change this?
