Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma took a sly dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who was apparently prompted by senior party leader Jairam Ramesh during a press conference, and termed the economist-turned-politician, Congress’ Chief Saboteur.’
The BJP leader also expressed ‘sorry’ for all those who wish for Rahul Gandhi to defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I feel nothing but sorry for the so-called secularists and leftists who harbour high hopes, expecting this man to defeat Hon. PM @narendramodi ji and become PM,” Sarma tweeted.
“And Jairam seems to be playing the role of Chief Saboteur. Tutoring with mic on…strange,” Sarma added, sharing a video clip of 26 seconds.
As per transcript shared by Sarma, Rahul Gandhi is initially shown saying ‘unfortunately I am a member of parliament’ at which Jairam Ramesh immediately corrected Gandhi and told him in his ear ‘they can make a joke’ of it.
Ramesh then asks Congress to rephrase it as ‘unfortunately, for you.’
