While India is an underdeveloped country where most politicians are not properly educated, they do not participate in open debates.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi said today that Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi is a coward. The Congress leader was speaking at a national convention ‘Mera Samvidhaan Mera Swabhimaan‘ organized by the All India Congress Committee, Minority Department, in New Delhi.
“नरेन्द्र मोदी डरपोक व्यक्ति है,” Rahul Gandhi said while inviting Modi for a face-to-face debate on various issues before the Lok Sabha election.
Such debates between leaders of competing political parties are held in advanced democracies such as the U.S. While India is an underdeveloped country where most politicians are not properly educated, they do not participate in open debates and usually abuse each other in their solo speeches delivered to illiterate voters.

“If BJP (Modi’s party) has any courage, they should make Mr. Modi stand with me on this stage for a debate,” the Congress leader challenged.
He added that Congress will defeat BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha polls, although he did not elaborate his strategy for defeating Modi or BJP.
It is largely believed that if the Lok Sabha election is held on electronic voting machines (EVMs), it will be almost impossible for Congress or any other political party to defeat BJP.
