Rahul Gandhi indulges in “Divide & Rule” “North & South” politics to woo voters in Kerala


In a malicious attempt to charm the Kerala voters, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi played the North-South politics by drawing a negative comparison between the Northern and Southern parts of the nation in demeaning words against the people living in Northern parts of the nation at a public rally in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

In his speech, Rahul Gandhi said “My experience now since I have been an MP, I have also got to understand the wisdom of people of Kerala. For the first 15 years, I was an MP in the north. I had got used to a different type of politics. For me, coming to Kerala was very refreshing because suddenly I found that people are interested in issues and not just superficially but going into detail in the issues.”

“I was talking to some students in the US & I said that I really enjoy going to Kerala. It’s not just affection but the way you do your politics. If I might say so, the intelligence with which you do your politics. So, for me, it’s been a learning experience & pleasure.”

Rahul Gandhi’s divisive statement invited a political backlash and sharp reaction from BJP leaders like Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, National President BJP JP Nadda, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju. Nadda said Rahul Gandhi’s divide & rule politics wouldn’t work and reminded him about the Gujarat Civic Body poll results. Shivraj Singh Chouhan took a jibe, saying Rahul Ji will be making South India “Congress-free.”  Union Minister Kiren Rijiju asked Gandhi not to insult Amethi and North Indians, saying the voters have given him and his family enough chance.
