10 reasons why Rahul Gandhi should be the next Prime Minister

Watching Manmohan Singh explain his government’s reforms, talk about corruption and also take down Modi in the same robotic monotone was downright depressing. Thankfully, he promised to pass on the baton. Now what we need is a young hungry one who would lead us to glory and who better than Rahul Gandhi, who has been tutored for this spot since he was in his nappies. I mean imagine if we ended up with Robert Vadra instead. So here are 10 solid reasons we want Rahul baba to be the next PM:

Update: Bonus Reason: His amazing interview with Arnab Goswami where he proves that women’s empowerment is the panacea for all of society’s problems and referring to oneself in the third person doesn’t make you sound smarter!

1. He shares his name with SRK’s most beloved characters

SRK

‘Rahul… Naam to suna hi hoga’. Who wouldn’t want to have that person as our PM? I mean does ‘Arvind – naam to suna hi hoga or Narendra – naam to suna hi hoga’ have the same ring!

2. He will be a more vocal Prime Minister than Manmohan Singh

Manmohan SinghWe yearn to hear more from the head of our country. In 10 years, Manmohan gave three full-fledged conferences, three! Hell, Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal probably give more press conferences in an hour! Anyway, we felt that we needed a more conversational PM who would talk to  us from time to time and Rahul baba is perfect for that. Also he’s prettier to look at than that Kejriwal fellow with his atrocious muffler and Modi’s beard.

3. He understands high-end physics and philosophy

Rahul-GandhiWe know he has been mocked for saying poverty was a state of mind and he’s not wrong. If someone like Tagore said it, we’d be praising him to the high heavens for saying something intellectual but anything Rahul Gandhi says is mocked. But geniuses were always mocked by their peers and Rahul baba’s situation is just the same. And come on how many politicians barring Kejriwal have a clue what escape velocity means!

4. His name is Gandhi for God’s sake

mohandasCome on the man’s surname is Gandhi. If there’s one Indian surname that people around the world recognise, it’s Gandhi. In fact, with a little data fudging ala Modi we could probably pass him off as Gandhi’s grandson or something.

5. Prime Ministership runs in his blood

Prime Ministers of IndiaHis great grandfather was the Prime Minister, his grandmother and father were ones as well! Politics is probably embedded in his gene and he must have his birthright.

6. He isn’t always angry about everything like Arvind Kejriwal

angry arvindIt’s become the in-thing to be angry about everything ala Kejriwal who probably can’t get through breakfast without finding five things to protest about. Although Rahul’s temper has been lost from time to time in the recent past, he comes across a cool head.

7. He doesn’t twist historical facts

Narendra ModiUnlike Narendra Modi who keeps on making up stuff, Rahul Gandhi has never, ever been accused of twisting historical facts. In fact, he’s pretty much likely that he has seen or witnessed or heard about anything historical that’s happened in India.

8. He hasn’t ever asked for giant statues

Sardar StatueMr Modi wants to erect a 182 m statue of Sardar Patel which will be the tallest statute in the world. Come on is that really a good use of resources when the nation has so many pressing issues to deal with! Shouldn’t we focus on stuff that’s really important like food or the latest Salman Khan movie? Rest assured Rahul Gandhi will never bother with such crass symbolism.

9. He will be able to converse with foreign leaders

rajnath singhHaving studied abroad, Mr Gandhi will surely be able to converse comfortably with foreign delegates and leaders unlike others. When current BJP chief Rajnath Singh went to the US and addressed delegates, no one could understand a single word. We surely won’t have similar problems with Rahul.

10. He had hot girlfriends and is easy on the eyes

Rahul with his ex-girlfriendThe rumour mills suggest that Mr Rahul Gandhi is quite popular with the ladies. Who wouldn’t want a PM who can talk to the ladies? Would you rather have a engineer who probably hasn’t talked to a girl  in his life or a celibate like Mr Narendra Modi who promises never to marry. Not to mention he has never been accused of using state resources to stalk women!

And for all the ladies out there who are sick of looking at politicians who look like their uncles or local goons or South Indian heroes. The nation’s ladies have waited a long time for a politician who is easy on the eyes and Mr Gandhi surely fits the bill!

    I do hope the readers are able to comprehend it as sarcasm… I did have a good laugh tho…

    I was hot angry at india.com after a look at the title of this post. But after reading it.. commendable job : D
    Mera naam? Naam to suna hi hoga.. Gand hi.. rahul gand hi

    yes I agree to this as he is young and energetic .

  • srini

    What kind of rubbish points are these?

    • root03

      naive satire

  • Ashok Naarayanan

    Though he’s a son of Indian father, he’s as son foreign origin. More over she has joined with a culprit bastard like Karunanidhi.

    That’s I say that the entire party to be routed from the nation.

  • righteousness

    All these points are highly irrelevant. I hope india’s people at-least have the decency to understand that nothing in this article implies of rahul gandhi as a good leader but rather portray other PM candidates in degrading manner. I am surprised to witness the land that gave birth to people like A.P.J Abdul Kalam and Mohandas Gandhi is know giving birth to such hedonistic and ignorant people(Rahul Gandhi). Just because he shares the same surname as Mohandas it does not give Rahul Gandhi the right to run the country, this is democracy, not MONARCHY. May the best leader win lawfully.

    • Nizamudheen Valliyattu

      The writer meant to say the same, he has no other ‘qualities’, oh well not qualities but mentions, to qualify him as a PM. Take it and read in that way :)

    • uday

      Jay Hind..

  • Anagat Choudhary

    look like south indian heroes!?…thats racist man…i cant believe they actually print such stuff

    • whatisthereinaname

      most of these people do not know anything about south india. it is not racism, it is plain ignorance, and that is not a crime.

      • Sireesha Madabhushi

        Again, if they are ignorant they should make it a point to know and then comment. It’s not ignorance buddy but sheer arrogance and indifference. The bloody number of Lok Sabha seats that UP and Bihar jointly share has made people up North think that they can get away with anything.

        • whatisthereinaname

          I agree with you

          • RAJ

            LEAVE IT MAN, THERE IS NO RACISM IN IT. I AM FROM SOUTH AND ENJOYED THAT WORD A LOT. THE AUTHOR SIMPLY MEANS THE HEROES FROM SOUTH USUALLY KEEP A GOOD MUSTACHE ESP THE KNOWN SUPERS STARS LIKE RAJNI, CHIRANJEEVI, MOHANLAL ETC AND ARE NOT CHOCOLATES.HE MEAN THE LADIES WANT A CLEAN SHAVED CHOCOLATE GUY LIKE RAHUL

  • Ankit

    Rofl…lmao…this was jus hillarious

  • RajeevS

    We have biological son Moron, adopted son Nautankibaaz and Murderer of terrorists. India has clear choice.

  • Sireesha Madabhushi

    What does this writer want to convey by mentioning “South Indian heroes”?
    First learn to respect all the different zones of India and then dare to talk about politics.

  • Sireesha Madabhushi

    What does this writer want to convey by saying “South Indian heros”? First, learn to respect all the different zones of India and then dare to comment on country’s politics.

    P.S.It does not do any good to delete these comments. Instead edit your post.
