Gufran also blamed the party president Sonia Gandhi for continuously trying to 'make Rahul what he is not capable of'.

"I have written a letter to party chief. In it, I have urged her to give up her love for her son Rahul who despite having spent 10 years in politics, had not learnt how to give a speech nor developed any political thinking," he told reporters.

He also said that people call Gandhi by names like 'pappu' or 'munna' which is insulting to the party.

His views on Rahul come in the backdrop of Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh recently saying that the Congress vice president does not have the temperament of a ruler.


"By temperament, woh sattadhaari vyakti nahin hain. By temperament, woh aisa vyakti hai jo anyay ke khilaph ladna chaahta hai (He is not a ruler by temperament. By temperament he is a person, who wants to fight injustice," Singh had said in an interview to a local news channel of Goa.
