Rahul Gandhi turns poetic, takes dig at Delhi's smog
Waiting for answers from 'Maun sahab', Rahul to PM Modi

New Delhi:  Taking a dig at Delhi Smog, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, on Monday, borrowed the lyrics of Old Bollywood melody and questioned why everyone is indifferent to the issue.

Seene me jalan, aankhon me toofan sa kyon hai, is sheher mein har shakhs pareshan sa kyon hai (What is the cause of this burning sensation in the heart and storm in the eyes? Why is everyone in this city troubled?)” Gandhi tweeted quoting the well-known ghazal from the 1978 Hindi movie ‘Gaman’, written by lyricist Shaharyar.

Gandhi, however, added one more line to the poem, and said, “Kya batayen ge sahab, sab jankar anjan kyo hai (Could you tell, why everyone is pretending ignorance despite knowing all).”

He did not name any political party or leader in his comment.
