Congress President Rahul Gandhi yet again found himself in a tight spot as he was mercilessly trolled on social media for saying that Coca-Cola and McDonald’s were started by a shikanji seller and a dhaba owner respectively. Soon after he made the comments, Twitterati began reacting and the Gandhi scion became the butt of jokes once more.
“Coca-Cola wala America mein shikanji bechta tha”, “McDonald’s wala dhaba chalata tha”, Gandhi said addressing the OBC national convention of the party at Talkatora Stadium in Delhi.
He said that the Coca Cola company was started by a “shikanji waala” who used to sell shikanji in the US. "His experience and efforts were appreciated by the people. He got money and started Coca Cola," he added. Rahul then also went on to say that McDonalds was started by a person who used to run a Dhaba.
Hello Rahul.. John Pemberton founded #CocaCola's original recipe.— Kiran Kumar S (@KiranKS) June 11, 2018
He was wounded in the chest in 1865 battle. So became a morphine addict. Later to cure his addiction, he experimented. First found alcoholic & then a non alcoholic Coke recipe.#AccordingToRahulGandhi #Shikanji pic.twitter.com/Y3DIm8Y9Cb
