Rahul Gandhi Speeches:

Rahul has a perpetual presence in the media due to his speeches made in parliament or elsewhere. He has been trolled on internet and on social media for the statements he has made. The latest embarrassment happened when the Congress leader addressed students at Mount Carmel college. In order to shed his image of an inexperienced leader, Rahul has upped the ante against the incumbent government by raising issues like farmer suicides and mistreatment of dalits.
