"go to my college and find out my educational qualifications" -- Rahul

Sunday, April 11, 2004 (Amethi):


Criticising BJP General Secretary Pramod Mahajan for his remark regarding educational qualifications of members of Nehru-Gandhi family, Rahul Gandhi today said it was reflective of BJP's growing frustration after witnessing the wave in favour of Congress. 

"Mahajan should go to my college and find out my educational qualifications," Rahul said in reply to a question on the BJP leader's remark made yesterday at an election rally in Jaunpur. 

"The BJP knows that the Congress is going to come back to power," he said adding "sacred by this scenario the BJP is indulging in attacks on my family." 

Accusing the BJP of moral bankruptcy, Rahul said, "It (BJP) had now also lost faith in the judiciary." 

Rahul, who launched his election campaign in the constituency on April 9 last, told newsmen BJP was increasingly getting frustrated as there was a wave in favour of the Congress in the country. 

He termed the feel good factor "being propagated by the BJP as a drama". 

"It is the BJP leaders and not the general public who are feeling good. Every section of the society is dissatisfied with the government yet the NDA is feeling good. It is a drama whose end is very near," Rahul said. 

Earlier, Rahul visited Amethi town and garlanded the statue of his father and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi besides interacting with a cross-section of the people. (PTI)

This is strange. It is the student's responsibility to produce his qualifications, not the other way.

This is a highly arrogant statement on part of Rahul. In any case, the
newspapers have projected him to be highly educated, and the fact that
Rahul has not made any statement that they are not correct, one must
assume that they are correct. Also, why does the media not reproduce
the affadavit made by Rahul when he filed his nomination?

Telling lies about qualifications is cheapest of all in the whole world which Rajive Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Kids Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi have mastered .It's shame on you to support them , they are no more private citizens , a public figure has to disclose all details of his qualifications .

Its not good to lie abt the educational background.
If he is really a grad. from any university the why there is so much disscussions over that. This proves that there is something wrong. rahul gandhi should publish or declare his resume or degree certificates to make all things clear.

well, before going to his college to find out about his degree, here's a bit of information. He did not even have the minimum cut-off marks to enter the college. 'Security' was touted as an excuse to admit him, against many hundreds who had the qualification to enter. A country, sentimental about the son of an assasinated PM nodded in sympathy. that's how rahul gANDHI GOT HIS ADMISSION. As for the educational qualification of his family no one after Nehru had any - not indira, rajiv or sanjay!!
