Youth Versus, er… Bloodlust

The Times of India Reports:

In an obvious dig at Rahul Gandhi, the 38-year-old Congress general secretary who is being projected as a youth icon by the party, Modi said: "We are not small fish floating around in the comfort of aquariums, but we weather huge storms to win."
.

.
The Congress reacted sharply to Modi's "fish" remarks, with spokesperson Manish Tewari saying in New Delhi: "If Rahul is a fish in the aquarium, then Modi is a piranha who devours human beings."


Politics, in India, is fishy business.

Rahul, like his mother, is an incompetent politician. I would rather have a hundred Modis than one more Rahul Gandhi. Nehru-Gandhi clan are the sole cause of ruin and the ill-state of India today.

And then there was this ridiculous debate in Headlines Today between Manish Tewari and few others regarding the specific nature of a piranha, and how its a fresh water fish. I watched the entire thing trying to figure out why they were discussing that aspect of the comment.
