Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge made a goof up while attacking the BJP during the ‘Maha Rally’ at Ramlila Maidan in the national capital on Sunday (March 31), and said that Rahul Gandhi, instead of Rajiv Gandhi, “gave his life and his body was torn into pieces”. Rahul Gandhi was present on the stage during Kharge’s slip of tongue. BJP leader Amit Malviya took a swipe at Kharge after the video of the remark went viral.

What did Kharge say?

Addressing a rally against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest in the alleged liquor scam, Kharge said, “We (Congress) fought, shed blood to win India its freedom. Indira Gandhi ji gave her life to keep the nation united. Rahul Gandhi ji apna jaan diye, unke sharir ke tukde tukde ho gaye (Rahul Gandhi gave his life, his body was torn into pieces).”
