Messi or Ronaldo? Rahul Gandhi's candid rapid-fire sessiontext_fields
Rahul Gandhi on Sunday, attended a conclave during which he participated in a rapid-fire quiz session, the video of which was shared on the social media platform X by the Congress.
The event was organised by the Pratidin Media Network of Assam in New Delhi.
In the interactive session, besides politics, Gandhi was asked about his preferences in pop culture, movies, sports, and various other aspects.
Among the intriguing choices he made, one was between football legends Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Rahul Gandhi said that while he admired Ronaldo's kindness, according to him Messi was a better footballer.
"If I was running a football team and I am asked who would I prefer, I would probably prefer Messi," he said.
The Congress leader also said that he prefers football to cricket.
When he was asked to choose between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Gandhi said, "Either one as I am not a huge cricket fan. I know that's not a good thing to say."
Between Bharat and India, a raging political topic at present, Gandhi's answer was ‘India that is Bharat’.
Between Netflix and workout, Rahul Gandhi chose workout. He could not choose any between Indian cuisine and Chinese as both are his favourite, he said.
When asked further to choose between Bharat Jodo beard and a clean-shaved look, the Congress MP said he is not attached to these things. "I am never too concerned about beard hai, nahi hai. I am okay with everything," he said.
Between the movies Godfather and Dark Knight, Gandhi said he would go with both as it's a difficult choice and both are very deep movies.
Had he not been a politician, he could have been 'anything', Rahul Gandhi answered.
"When I am talking to my nephew and his friends, I am a teacher. When I am in the kitchen, I am a cook. Politician is just one frame of me. We all have many different frames," Rahul Gandhi said.
At The Conclave 2023, Rahul Gandhi spoke on various political issues ranging from One Nation One Election to BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri's abusive words aimed at BSP MP Kunwar Danish Ali in Parliament among other issues.
