Rahul Gandhi loses in ‘Temple Run', Congress leaders take ‘collective responsibility’

16, May 2014 By Vaibhav Anand

New Delhi: After losing in the National Elections by a comprehensive margin, Rahul Gandhi also happened to lose to a ten years old when the boy challenged him to play ‘Temple Run’ against him.

This has forced Congress spokespersons to jump to his defense immediately after they had jumped to his defense for his failure in the general elections.

After the arguments that ‘Rahul was too young to be blamed for the defeat’ and that the ‘defeat was due to the polarization of the ten years old by Modi’ failed to cut ice, the spokespersons were apparently forced to take the route of ‘collective responsibility’.

“No no no… this is not Rahul Gandhiji’s defeat,” Salman Soz, one of the spokespersons for the Congress party, said, speaking on behalf of Rahul Gandhi, “Rahul Gandhiji was thinking of empowering poor people, empowering women and maybe a little bit about Chhota Bheem and hence, he was distracted when playing. It is not his fault at all.”

“The Congress party takes collective responsibility for Rahulji’s defeat in Temple Run,” Soz added, “If we had solved the problems of poor people, women and err… Chhota Bheem earlier, Rahulji wouldn’t have had to worry about empowering them at all and hence, would not have lost at all. So all in all, this is all our collective fault.”
