Rahul Gandhi in a candid interview with Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-chief of Times Now opened up to the questions being asked to him. But still tried to play safe and answered diplomatically on certain questions. It was interesting to know how he molded the questions that he did not want to answer into some other direction.

“You have to understand who Rahul Gandhi is and you will get an answer to the question to what Rahul Gandhi is scared of and not scared of.” Rahul Gandhi answered when he was asked if he is scared of Narendra Modi in the race to become prime minister and thus he avoids direct face-off with Gujarat chief minister.

In a full-fledged interview to Editor-in-chief and News anchor of reputed news channel Times Now, Rahul opened up his heart to the multiple questions being asked on wide range of subjects. Here are some of the excerpts from the interview that kept India want for more.

Firstly, he attacked Modi for abetting 2002 Gujarat riots. He said that fact of innocent people died in 1984 and the innocent people dying is a horrible thing and this should not happen. He fetched a border line between Gujarat riots and 1984 riots and cleared that the government of Gujarat was involved in the riots. When again crossed him with Modi getting the clean chit by the courts, he contradicted saying that when Modi was the chief minister, the riots happened and the government in Gujarat along with Narendra Modi pushed and provoked the people for the riot to happen.

The direct questions thrashed Rahul through every angle. He admitted that the 1984 riots had involvement of some of the Congress men of that time and that they have been punished for it. He was further asked whether he would apologize for the 1984 riots, he formulated that “First of all, I wasn’t involved in the riots at all. It wasn’t that I was a part of it. Frankly, I was not in operation in Congress party then. “

Next question passed to him was what was his view on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the next election and what does he think on its prime ministerial candidate. He stressed on defeating BJP in the next elections. Rahul said that he is confident that he will win the election. He termed Congress to be battle ready and thus will win.
He laid emphasis on the vast differentiation between the ideologies and philosophies of Congress and BJP. He clarified his statement with justification that BJP believes in concentration of power in one person. Congress and he himself disagree with this philosophy. He believes in democracy and opening of the system.

When asked about the punishment or any action taken against Ashok Chavan and Virbhadra Singh, Gandhi answered diplomatically that anybody who is corrupt should be punished and said that he is not a judge to punish anyone. He further added that the legal process is there and with the result of the legal process, the corrupt should be punished.

Throughout the entire interview, Rahul avoided the direct reply to various major questions. He tried to turn the questions towards different angle to bypass the controversies that could have arisen if he would have further answered it. It brings a clear notification that he may have felt being trapped amongst the web of direct questions.
