I have become the Chief Minister because of Rahul Gandhi and his pet Pidi – Sarcasm by the CM of Assam

Guwahati (Assam) – I could become the Chief Minister of Assam only because of Rahul Gandhi, Ex President of the Congress. So I thank him, said Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Chief Minister of Assam, in a sarcastic tone.

When Sarma was in Congress earlier, a meeting was held in Assam for the Assembly elections. Some of the key Congress leaders were present in that meeting along with Rahul Gandhi. Sarma said that tea and coffee was ordered for the leaders present in the meeting. At that time, Rahul Gandhi’s dog Pidi sitting near him went to the table and started eating a biscuit from the plate. Rahul Gandhi was laughing looking at us. I could not understand why was he laughing ? I had the cup of tea in my hand and was waiting that another plate would be ordered for us as the dog had taken the biscuit from the previous one. But no such thing happened. To my surprise, senior leaders like Tarun Gogoi and CP Joshi were eating the biscuits from the same plate. I was not used to meeting Rahul Gandhi. So I guessed that it was normal for other leaders. I could also guess that such things must be usual in every meeting of Rahul Gandhi. So after that meeting, I decided that I would not be able to work with such a person any more and I resigned from Congress. Somehow that incident must have contributed in my becoming the Chief Minister and hence, I am thankful to Rahul Gandhi, said Sarma.

(If the incident narrated by Sarma is true then it is quite clear how much respect the Congress party leaders get from the Gandhi family. It is also clear why the general public was not given any respect so far and would not expect it in the future too. – Editor)
