Rahul Gandhi wondering why FTII didn't follow a democratic process similar to Congress in electing its head

Pune: After giving a pep talk to the protesting liberal revolutionary students in the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Rahul Gandhi settled in his hotel room suite and went in to deep thoughts. According to his personal assistants, he was in deep thoughts about FTII.

Rahul Gandhi deeply wondering about something, which obviously will be something revolutionary, at least to Congress leaders.

While our attempts to talk with Rahul Gandhi failed, we met one of his personal assistant, who was free enough to praise the Congress Vice President. Speaking to Faking News, the unnamed assistant said, “Rahulji is now very tired after his brave talk at FTII. Opposing a fascist government obviously takes its toll on his young body. As you had asked me, he is in deep thoughts now. Whenever he raises his voice on an issue, he ventures into different areas of his brain and think about how to approach that issue. It was how he found out the famous punch lines ‘suit-boot ki sarkar’ and ‘modi is trying to grab your land’.”

When we asked him to guess on what Rahul might be wondering, he grinned and said, “When we were driving back to hotel from FTII, he was in a similar deep thought experiment. Then, he turned back to me and said ‘I wonder why FTII is not following a democratic process similar to our party. It would had been easy, if there was planned succession in FTII. We should suggest this in Parliament. Look at our party. Do we have any of our leaders and workers raising war flags against appointment of me or my Mommy as High Command?’ When he finished talking, we had goosebumps. Such a revolutionary thinking he has. We are so blessed to work for him.”

“Just imagine, If FTII had Chairman for around 20 years, and the post is inherited by his daughter, then by her son and then by his wife and then by her son, similar to Congress, then nobody is going to raise voice against it,” said a senior Congress leader who was standing next to us.
