Ahmedabad, DeshGujarat, 1 February, 2010
According to the video above, Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Monday said “sorry” to the students gathered at Darbhanga area’s Lalit Narayan Mithila University in Bihar as what he said for using the word ‘Gujarat’ instead of ‘Bihar’.
Rahul, who had begun a two-day visit to the state to shore up support for the Congress, found that his comment on Gujarat did not find favor with the students of Lalit Narayan Mithila University.
Rahul said that for India to be changed, Gujarat needed to be changed first. This sparked off protests, with students saying that the meeting was not the platform for making political statements.
“What about the condition of Bihari youths in Congress ruled Maharashtra and even under the central rule of your party? Why are you involving Gujarat here?” angry students shouted.
Gandhi tried to convince the gathering that it was just a sleep of tongue, but students were not in mood to listen to him and Rahul had to flee eventually.
It was generally felt that Rahul used this slogan: ‘for India to be changed, Gujarat needed to be changed first’ to collect Muslim votes in Bihar as the state has considerably well amount of Muslim votes.
