Rahul Gandhi, who aspires to become the Prime Minister of the country, made this remark while addressing the youth at Chennai’s Stella Maris college on Wednesday
Chennai: Rahul Gandhi made a parochial comment while addressing the youth at Chennai’s Stella Maris college on Wednesday.
The Congress president said that south India treats its women better. He also said that Tamil Nadu is one of the leaders in how it treats its women.
South India is significantly better than North India in the way women are treated. Tamil Nadu is one of the leaders in how it treats its women. However, there is still a lot of improvement required in TN as well: CP @RahulGandhi #VanakkamRahulGandhi pic.twitter.com/PwNFYv7YvJ— Congress (@INCIndia) March 13, 2019
However, this comment didn’t go down well with Twitter users. While some people criticised the Congress chief for openly insulting people of north India, other pointed out that in spite of being the leader of a national party he openly created a divided between the north and the south.

Look how this man is narrating the north-south divide here. Congress only knows how to divide and rule.— Saffron Sadhu (@normaly_abnorml) March 13, 2019
He knows no one is going to vote for him in North so now he is playing politics of North and South.— क्षत्रधारी ठेठ पहाड़ी (गढ़वाली)🏔 (@bhandari_vikas) March 13, 2019

U made a mistake here by diving country and making one better than other— Jhakas (@Jhakas69873767) March 13, 2019
What a joke, Rahul can only create North South Divide, he's insulting North Indians. Shameful— Sherry (@sharda544) March 13, 2019
It is indeed surprising that Gandhi who aspired to become the Prime Minister of the country resorted to creating divided between north India and south India.
This is not the only slip-up he did while addressing the crowd at the Chennai college. He also called Nirav Modi, Narendra Modi and then rectified his mistake.
"We want to take the money that is going to 15-17 corrupt business people like Narendra...not Narendra, Nirav Modi and open the banking system to entrepreneurs like yourself," said Gandhi.
