New Delhi, Aug. 13 : Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who met President Pranab Mukherjee along with striking FTII students today, targeted the NDA government yet again saying those singing praises for the Prime Minister 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,” Rahul, who had earlier today attacked the government over the Lalit Modi row, told media persons here.
“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)
