New Delhi, Aug. 13 : Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday slammed Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his remark on FTII chief and dubbed him as ‘immature’.
“When seniority is thrust on you, a certain level of maturity is expected. The more Rahul Gandhi grows, more immature he gets,” said Jaitley.
Rahul Gandhi, who met President Pranab Mukherjee along with striking FTII students today, said that those singing praises for the RSS are being made heads of premier institutes in the country.
“They (FTII students) have come into the institution based on their capabilities, but people who have been placed on top of them do not have the same capability. The people who have been placed on top do not have merit,” said Rahul.
“The only merit they have is that they have sung the praises for the Prime Minister, of the BJP and believed in the ideology of the RSS,” he added.
Nearly 200 students of the FTII have been striking for over two months against the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the Pune-based institute’s chief.
Rahul had visited the institute on July 31 and attacked the RSS for promoting “mediocrity” in national institutions. (ANI)
