Twitter users thrash Rahul Gandhi after he recites poetry against Demonetisation

Congress vice-president and Amethi MP, Rahul Gandhi took to poetry and songs today to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the alleged Sahara kickbacks and demonetisation. Criticising the RBI flip-flops on deposits in banks after the announcement of demonetisation on November 8 by PM Narendra Modi, Rahul invoked a song of Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Namak Halal’ but twisted it in his own style. “…Amitabh Bachchan ji ki film ka ek gaana tha ‘ram ram japna ghareeb ka maal apna,” Rahul said. The original words were, “Aap ka to lagta hai bas yahi sapna/ Ram naam japna paraya maal apna.”

While pointing out the widespread inconvenience caused to people due to noteban, Rahul shared a couplet to attack PM Modi, “Log toot jaate hain ek ghar banane mein, tum taras nahi khaate grehastiyan jalane mein.” Yesterday, while responding to PM Modi’s “packet” jibe against him, Rahul had invoked Ghalib, saying, “‘Har ek baat pe kehte ho ke tu kya hai, tumhi kaho ke yeh Andaaz-e-Guftagu kya hai”.

However, Rahul Gandhi’s “poetic” avatar has triggered the lyrical bones of Twitterati and they are sharing these ROFL couplets you won’t like to miss.
