Congress party president Rahul Gandhi has just made a weird statement in which he has claimed that the founder of the world famous carbonated drink 'Coca-Cola' once used to sell 'Shikanji'(Lemonade) in the US. Not just that he further stated that the famous American fast food company McDonald's was once a 'Dhaba'. Addressing at the National OBC (Other Backward Classes) at Talkatora Stadium in the national capital, Rahul said, "Do you know who was the founder of Coca-Cola? The founder used to sell shikanji." It is to inform you that American pharmacist John Pemberton was addicted to morphine after which in 1886 he prepared a soda-fountain as a medicine. And, today it is known as Coca-Cola drink. Targeting the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul said it was a lie that there was a shortage of skills in the OBC community. "There is no shortage of skill in the OBC class. They are full of skills. Why are banks not open to our farmers and small businesses? There is no dearth of skills amongst OBC communities, but they lack capital," Rahul added. Slamming the ruling BJP led government, he continued, "BJP's strategy is clear. 15-20 rich capitalists will give thousands of crores to Prime Minister Modi and all benefits will go to just those 15-20 rich people." He also stated; "Everyone including MPs is afraid to speak. Most of them are not allowed to speak. And those of us who do speak, the BJP does not listen to. Only the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is given a hearing. Today, our nation has become a slave of two to three BJP leaders and RSS." Further targeting the ruling party he said that today we have the highest unemployment rate in last eight years. And that our prime minister does not want's to speak of employment and skill. Rahul, in the end, made it clear that the Congress has always stood for the OBC community in the last 70 years, and will continue to strive for their rights.
