Chennai: Stella Maris College in Chennai that hosted the Congress president Rahul Gandhi is under scrutiny now after the directorate of collegiate education issued a circular asking how the institution was used for a discussion involving a political leader when the model code of conduct was in effect since March 10.
The directorate of collegiate education issued a circular to the regional joint director.
Rahul was in the college addressing as many as 3,000 students on Wednesday. He spoke about Indian politics, apart from making remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Rahul also spoke about the supposed manifesto of the UPA, if it comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections. He had said that the UPA government would simplify the procedures in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and have a low single tax rate.
He also said that the UPA will reserve 33% government jobs for women and pass the Women’s Reservation Bill giving 33% seats in the Lok Sabha if it wins the mandate for the 17th Lok Sabha.
Rahul also took a range of questions from the students about the Kashmir policy, especially economic growth and bringing peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
Apart from these, Rahul attacked PM Modi.
In response to a question on his brother-in-law Robert Vadra, Rahul said the law must apply to everybody and not be applied selectively.
He also brought up the issue of the Rafale deal and reiterated his allegations about the pricing of the aircraft and the process.
"I will be the first person to say it... investigate Robert Vadra but also investigate Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that the Congress president may contest the Lok Sabha polls from two seats, one from Amethi and the other from Karnataka.
