Even Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein used to win elections, claims Rahul Gandhi | India News – Times of India

Must read

NEW DELHI: In a fresh attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi used to win elections as well.
Gandhi, in a conversation with Professor Ashutosh Varshney of USA’s Brown University, said, “Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein used to have elections and they used to win it. There was no institutional framework to protect the vote.”
He compared the ideology of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with that of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
When asked the implications of China rising to ‘Global superpower status’, he said, “The rise of Chinese is affecting our politics for some time now.”
“Chinese have a military strategy and there is no counter-strategy to that,” he added.
“The situation in India is worse, we do not need a stamp regarding that,” Gandhi said when asked about the ‘Electoral autocracy’ status given to India by a US-based organisation recently.
The former Congress President claimed, “BJP MPs in Parliament tell me that they cannot have an open discussion. They say they are told what to say.”
“My mic was turned off in the Parliament and it was not telecast in on television,” he added.
