It was indeed hilarious yet unbelievable to watch Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi being fooled by none other than the Puducherry chief minister Velu Narayanasamy when the latter provided a grossly incorrect translation of the grievance raised by a woman during a meeting between the Gandhi scion and the fishermen community.
Speaking in Tamil, one of the women in the audience lamented that the ruling Congress government in Puducherry did not help the people when the union territory was ravaged by the cyclone. However, with Rahul Gandhi not being proficient in Tamil, Congress leader and the chief minister of Puducherry, Narasyanasamy used the opportunity to give a false account of the woman’s protestation, saying that the woman had lauded him for visiting her during the cyclone and providing her with relief material.
While Narayanasamy was successful in pulling the wool over Rahul Gandhi’s eyes, social media users who were proficient in Tamil quickly pointed out the brazen treachery of Puducherry chief minister. Scores of social media users asserted that the chief minister of Puducherry unabashedly misquoted the woman to portray himself as a conscientious leader tirelessly working for the welfare of his subjects.
