On February 28, Indian MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi delivered a speech at Cambridge University which got everyone talking. The former Congress President touched upon several things regarding India’s case in the speech ranging from Pegasus to the state of Democracy in India. 

The reaction to Rahul Gandhi’s speech at the University in England received mixed reactions from his countrymen. While several people have stood up with him, and praised him for his eloquence, others have hurled criticism at him for trying to ‘ruin the image of the country’. 

Rahul Gandhi was in his Alma Mater to deliver a lecture on the topic of “learning to listen in the 21st century’. Rahul Gandhi had completed his M. Phil in development studies, from the same university. Cambridge University has a culture of inviting its alumni students to speak as fellow lecturers. 

Although Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on the current Modi regime made the most noise in India, he touched upon several other topics as well. Gandhi dedicated a huge chunk of his time to talking about the need for the promotion of manufacturing in the developing country. 

While talking about the Indian Government, Rahul Gandhi started by praising a few pro-poor policies of the country, which included lending gas cylinders to women and opening bank accounts for them. 

However, the 52-year-old shifted to talking about how a few policies wouldn’t change the basic structure of Indian democracy.

“Indian democracy is under pressure, is under attack. I am an Opposition leader in India and we are navigating that space. What is happening is that the institutional framework which is required for a democracy — Parliament, a free press, the judiciary — just the idea of mobilisation, just the idea of moving around … these are all getting constrained. So, we are facing an attack on the basic structure of Indian democracy

Further in his speech, Rahul Gandhi also talked about the much-debated Pegasus issue. Gandhi opened up about the presence of Pegasus in his phone. He also stated that a few intelligence officers warned of ‘being careful’ while speaking on the phone as it was under surveillance. 

Indian Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Anurag Thakur hit back at Rahul Gandhi. He cornered the leader for speaking ill about the country in foreign land.
