Rahul Gandhi, the perennial coming-of-age leader of Congress has once again proven that he is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Yammering at an election rally in Nawada ahead of the Bihar assembly elections, the young Congress leader, customary to his lying nature made brazen remarks that the Chinese PLA troops had come 1200 km deep inside the country’s territory from the Line of Actual Control (LAC) where the Galwan valley clash had took place.
“The Chinese army killed 20 of our soldiers and took over 1,200 kilometres of our land. Why did our PM insult the heroes by lying that no one came inside India when Chinese soldiers came inside our land. Today he say I bow my head,” said a deluded yet confident Rahul Gandhi.
#WATCH चीन की सेना ने हमारे 20 सैनिकों को शहीद किया और हमारी 1200 किलोमीटर ज़मीन ली है। जब चीन हमारी ज़मीन के अंदर आया तो हमारे PM ने वीरों का अपमान करते हुए ये क्यों बोला कि हिन्दुस्तान के अंदर कोई नहीं आया। आज कहते हैं कि मैं सिर झुकाता हूं: नवादा, बिहार में राहुल गांधी pic.twitter.com/iiL1KSWotA

Rahul Gandhi might not have done his due diligence with the facts because let’s be honest, it isn’t his biggest suit, however, we did, and found out that if Rahul Gandhi’s statements are indeed true then currently at least half of Indian territories would be under Chinese occupation.
A routine check on Google Earth will be enough to tell a layman that 1200 km from LAC means that the states and union territories such as Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttarakhand, UP, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and parts of Gujarat, Chattisgarh, West Bengal, and Jharkhand—all would come under the Chinese territory.
If we calculate 1200 km distance from entire India-China border and not just from Ladakh, then even more areas will be under China’s control, including the entire northeast, Odisha, etc.
Unless Rahul Gandhi saw some Chinese troops or fought off some PLA troops on his way to Bihar, then only it is possible that he made these outrageous claims, otherwise, we are having a hard time finding any reasoning.
The Wayanad MP was sharing the stage with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav and therefore it would be safe to say that the collective IQ of the two leaders wouldn’t have crossed the average IQ of the country.
Rahul Gandhi and mathematics do not go hand in hand and the Congress scion has a history of altering numbers and inflating them to create a dystopian image of corruption, reminiscent of previous UPA regimes and their towering corruption sagas.
The most popular incident is Rahul’s obsession with Rafale jets which he tried to make a poll plank in the run-up to the 2019 General elections. The Congress leader fuddled the cost of jets numerous times in his speeches and monologues but when he finally settled on a price of Rs 30,000 crore, it was found that Rahul Gandhi had again miserably failed at elementary mathematics.
“Prime Minister of India is a thief. He has stolen 30,000 crores from you, the defence ministry is objecting to his interference. Mr Anil Ambani is his man, and Mr Anil Ambani has been given 30,000 crores of your money. Now, my friends in the Air Force pilots, remember one thing, this 30,000 crores could have been used for your safety, this 30,000 crores could have been given to your family, this 30,000 crore could be given to you, when you die in a plane crash. This is your money, this not the money of Anil Ambani,” Rahul Gandhi had said in one of his speeches.
However, as TFI had reported earlier, the government has made a deal worth 60,000 crores for 36 fighter aircraft. The defense procurement policy of India puts an obligation of 50 percent offset on defense purchase.
Therefore Dassault Aviation, the company which produces Rafale aircraft had to make an investment worth 30,000 crores in India of which only 10 percent was awarded to Reliance Defense which amounts to 3,000 crores. However, Rahul Gandhi has taken the liberty of exaggerating worth of the offset deal to 30,000 crore which is 10 times higher than actual deal.
The Congress president and his ambitious NYAY scheme has also fallen prey to his atrocious mathematics. On different occasions, the Congress leader has promised Rs 72,000 per year, Rs 72,000 per month, and Rs 72,000 crores per year under the NYAY scheme, bringing collective shame to his already dilapidated party.
Last year, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi had lied about the loan-waivers given to industrialists and had kept on changing the numbers in every speech he delivered to attack the Modi government.

Rahul Gandhi had also recently made a fool of himself when he had questioned PM Narendra Modi’s scientific suggestion to Henrik Andersen, president and CEO of Danish wind turbine maker Vestas. Motivated by some excited yet dumb Congress IT cell intern, Rahul Gandhi in a hurry to look like the genius-super intellectual tweeted, “The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him.” Alas, on the contrary, there is nobody in the Congress that can stop Rahul Gandhi from indulging in buffoonery from time to time.

TFI had deconstructed PM Modi’s suggestions and proved that Rahul Gandhi was indeed charting into territory that has beyond his capacities.
This is not the first time that Rahul Gandhi has made brain-dead remarks on the Sino-India border issue. Rahul’s chest-beating on the Indo-China border issue hadn’t gone down well within his own party leaders where the 23 Congress dissidents, colloquially referred to as G23 had expressed their displeasure over Rahul Gandhi’s immature comment of taking back Ladakh in ‘15 minutes from China’.
If you believe Rahul Gandhi has hit the rock-bottom, wait for another opportunity for him to prove you wrong, and trust us, he will do everything in his capability to prove you such. Way to go Rahul baba.
