Twitterati trolls Rajdeep Sardesai’s ‘interview of the decade’ with Sonia Gandhi

Sonia Gandhi recently gave her first television interview after almost a decade. Talking to India Today’s Rajdeep Sardesai, the Congress president had a lot to say about her mother-in-law Indira Gandhi, the comparisons between PM Narendra Modi and Indira Gandhi, and her staunch belief that the party will surely come back to power. But interestingly, what was left unspoken made more news on social media than what was talked about in the interview. Sardesai’s little or no inquiry about Gandhi and the Emergency and the scams that the Congress party was involved in, did not go unnoticed, and in no time, people took to the Internet to evaluate what was touted the “interview of the decade”.

Many criticised the interview as what rather seemed like a “lovely, adorable” chit-chat between the two, others were reminded how everyone criticised Arnab Goswami for his “soft” interview with PM Modi, of which this seemed nothing less than a repetition.

Many joked how the conversation seemed scripted, and that Sardesai must have already sent her the questions, so she came prepared. Many people on the Internet also thought the interview seemed just another “saas-bahu serial scene”!

While a majority conceded how the interview left many questions unanswered, the tweets pertaining to the interview sure did some talking! Sample some of the tweets here!
