Congress chief Rahul Gandhi takes a dig at BJP President Amit Shah as his microphone went off during his speech at an event in New Delhi
The Hush Post: Taking a humorous dig at his BJP counterpart Amit Shah, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday blamed the former as his (Gandhi’s) microphone went off during his speech at an event in New Delhi.
As Rahul Gandhi was addressing a gathering at ‘Sanjhi Virasat Bachao Sammelan’ in the national capital, his speech was disrupted due to a technical snag in the microphone, which went off with a buzzing sound, a report said.
Just before the microphone went off, Rahul Gandhi was targeting the BJP, by saying: “they were making all attempts to create a prison around the ‘golden bird’, but we were trying to prevent them from doing the same.”
And it was at this point that the microphone went off, following which the Gandhi scion took a humorous jibe by saying: “Amit Shah ji ne mic band karaa diya (Amit Shah ji got the microphone switched off).”

It came a day after the Congress took a dig at Amit Shah over the incident of the tricolour falling at the ruling party’s headquarters in New Delhi. As the BJP chief tried to unfurl the national flag at the BJP office on the occasion of Independence Day, the tricolour fell down, the report said.
After this incident, the Congress had asked as to how the party planned to manage the country when it could not even handle the national flag. The Congress had also shared a video of the incident on Twitter.
“Those who cannot handle the flag, how will they handle the country? If those people who have treated the flag with contempt for over 50 years had not done so, the flag would not have been insulted like it was today. Those who give lectures to others on patriotism, do not even know etiquettes of the national anthem,” the Congress had tweeted.
