In a strange moment that was captured on video, Congress president Rahul Gandhi appeared to blank out on Monday upon being asked a question about his recent Kailash Mansarovar yatra.
The incident took place in Bhopal where Rahul Gandhi had headlined a Congress Madhya Pradesh campaign rally. After addressing party workers along with senior party leaders Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Rahul Gandhi walked among the audience taking questions posed to him by the emcee.
Rahul Gandhi was asked about the yatra. The question was: “Karyakartas want to know that when you went to Kailash Mansarovar, then BJP had an ache in its scomach. They kept asking ‘when did Rahul Ji become a Shiv Bhakt’. Karyakartas want to know your experiences.”
Rahul Gandhi had an inscrutable look on his face. Following the question being asked, Rahul Gandhi nodded in acknowledgement, and then said ‘haan’. For a few seconds after that he looked around, and as the silence became louder, with Scindia and Kamal Nath milled around him as though awaiting an answer, Rahul Gandhi appeared to hear something.
BJP IT Cell chief Amit Malviya attacked Congress president Rahul Gandhi
He attacked him for going blank when asked about his Kailash Mansarovar experience. Malviya tweeted a small video clip and accused the Congress president of not being able to answer properly the question related to his Manasarovar yatra.

Along with Amit Malviya, Mahesh Vikram Hegde, founder of propaganda website Postcard news, tweeted that “Rahul couldn’t even open his mouth when asked about Kailash Yatra”

Was Rahul Gandhi not able to answer a simple question about Kailash- Manasarovar even when he returned from the pilgrimage just recently?
What is interesting is that the clip being circulated to mock Rahul Gandhi is a sliced-out portion from a longer video footage. If one watches the full video, Rahul can be heard sharing his experience after a brief silence followed by fumbling for a while.
“Kailash…(pause) jo Kailash parvat hai, aur jo mansarovar hai… agar vyakti udhar chala jaata hai, toh ek prakaar se vapis aane se sab kuch badal jaata hai, soch badal jaati hai aur ek geheraii si aa jaati hai”
(Kailash… the Kailash mountain… and Mansarovar… if a person goes there, then in a way, when he returns, everything is different. The thinking changes and a kind of depth comes.)
