Dressed informally to address the students of Bengaluru’s Mount Carmel college, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi seemed like he was in the zone, much like he was when he turned up to meet with FTII students few months back .
But unlike that speech, things did not exactly work out like the Congress vice president may have planned.
So when he asked the audience whether they thought the Swacch Bharat initiative for cleanliness was working, he was visibly surprised when the reply was a resounding, “Yes!”
“Ok I don’t see Swacch Bharat working,” he said with a shrug of his shoulders and a smile.

So he switched tracks.
“Let’s ask another question. Do you think Make in India is working?” he asked the audience.
“Yes,” they shouted back. Though in Gandhi’s defence, many did shout no as well.
Seeing he was not going anywhere with it, the Congress vice president said that in his opinion government initiatives like Make in India, Swacch Bharat and Connect India weren’t working.
Here’s the video:
Expectedly, Twitter had a field day with tweets like:

Everytime Rahul Gandhi opens his mouth in public, he donates a few hundred votes to other parties. This way Congress will be extinct soon.— Vinit Shah (@shahvin) November 25, 2015
Am glad that RAHUL Gandhi is in a college today. Must seem such unfamiliar territory.— SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) November 25, 2015
This has to be second best self-goal after interview with Arnab. He still remains only a joker in the pack. #RahulStumped— भगुरायण (@Noetic_Karma) November 25, 2015
Arnab proved Pappu can’t answer questions. Mount Carmel students proved Pappu can’t ask questions. #RahulStumped— R Sathyamurthy (@samaruna) November 25, 2015
