Rahul Gandhi's Latest Goof Up About The Number Of Seats In Lok Sabha Has Twitter Rolling Its Eyes



Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has been hogging the limelight for quite some time now for his US visit, and trust us, ‘Artificial Intelligence' has nothing to do with his popularity. Rahul Gandhi is currently on a two-week trip to the US where he will meet world leaders. However, while he was busy addressing students at the University of California in Berkeley on ‘India at70: Reflections on the Path Forward', social media was busy testing and questioning his intelligence back home.

Rahul Gandhi is known for making gaffes during his speeches. While, people try to scoop out controversial statements from the speeches of other leaders, in Rahul's case they look out for the funny mistakes he makes. This time around too, people were quick to notice the minor error he made in the number of Lok Sabha seats while answering a question. In our schools, we were taught that there are 545 seats in the Lower House (543+2 seats reserved for the members of the Anglo-Indian community). However, Rahul thinks there are 546 seats, at least that's what he said in the speech. People are amused also because Rahul Gandhi is being considered as the prime ministerial candidate for the 2019 elections by the Congress party and that he isn't aware about the fact that there can't be even number of members in the Lower House.   

Artificial Intelligence..!! ðð

Please give him a break. Ultra rich guys like him can't be expected to know the concept of even & odd numbers

#RahulGandhi says there are 546 (not 545) members in Lok Sabha! How can a legislative House have even number of members? #RGinUS

Too much to expect #RahulGandhi to make it through the evening without at least a minor gaffe. (Lok Sabha strength is 545 members, not 546.)

Well, this isn't the first time that Rahul has made such a gaffe during a speech. While talking to the people in Firozabad, Uttar Pradesh, he once said “You all are demanding a potato factory in your area, but you should understand I am an opposition leader. I can put pressure on the government, but cannot take the decision. I cannot open a potato factory for farmers.” He actually wanted to say factory of potato chips, but this goof up gave people a chance to have a good laugh. 

In another incident, when he was addressing the students at Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies in Mumbai, he said “One day you're going to run this country, run the institutions, you will be the Steve Jobs in the Microsofts and the leaders…the Facebooks of this country.”

Time and again his statements have made people hold their stomach while laughing. In fact, although it wasn't exactly a mistake, people couldn't help but point the irony out. He said, “Most of the country runs like this, so don't go after me, Akhilesh Yadav a dynast, Mr Stalin a dynast, Mr Dhumal's son a dynast.” He even gave examples of Ambani and Amitabh Bachchan. As expected people were quick to point out that the examples he mentioned aren't the only ‘dynast' in the Indian politics.

At the end, we can say that Rahul Gandhi's latest gaffe will go down in the golden pages of Indian politics. And while he continues to give such brilliant speeches, nothing has been talked about ‘Artificial Intelligence' so far.
