Even as Congress scrambled for damage control after party veteran Sheila Dikshit’s comments that Rahul Gandhi was not yet a mature leader, BJP latched onto the remark to ask Congress why it was bent on imposing Rahul on Uttar Pradesh.
Dikshit’s comments as part of an exclusive interview to TOI on Thursday took political circles by storm and unleashed a flood of commentary on social media and news websites as the former Delhi CM’s observations were hotly debated. “Please remember Rahul is still not mature, his age does not allow him to be mature. He is what… in his forties. Please give him time,” she had said.
