Santa Clara, May 31
There are people in India who think they know more than God and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "one such specimen", Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said.
Speaking at the 'Mohabbat Ki Dukaan' event organised by Indian Overseas Congress, USA, in Santa Clara in the US state of California on Tuesday, Gandhi said these people are "absolutely convinced" that they know everything and can explain history to historians, science to scientists and warfare to the army.
"The world is too big and complicated for any person to know everything. That is the disease…There is a group of people in India who are absolutely convinced they know everything. They think they know even more than God.
"They can sit with God and explain to him what's going on. And of course, our prime minister is one such specimen. If you make Modiji sit with God, he will explain to God how the universe works and God will get confused about what He has created,” he said, evoking peals of laughter from hundreds of his Indian-American supporters.
"At the core of it is mediocrity. They're not ready to listen," he said.
