New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s controversial remark on Michelle Obama in 2017 has once again started doing the rounds on social media once again. Surprisingly, the remark has found a mention in former US president Barack Obama’s new book ‘The Promised Land’, India Today reported.
Speaking at a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur in 2017, Rahul Gandhi had said, “Jab ObamaJi ki patni Amreeka me apni rasoi me kuch pakaye, patilon ko dekhke kahen sundar patila hai aur patile pe likha ho Made in Jaunpur.”
What he was trying to say is that not just ‘Made in India’, Indian products should be marketed globally and when a farmer from Uttar Pradesh goes abroad, he should be able to see local items being used in abundance in the US.
The remark received much flak on social media and among the political circles.
Barack Obama writes, “Rahul Gandhi has a nervous, unformed quality about him, as if he were a student who’d done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject.”
