Rahul on windNEW DELHI : Hours after Rahul Gandhi mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ideas on the wind turbine, Union Minister Piyush Goyal blasted the former Congress president saying, “Nobody around him has the guts to tell him that he doesn’t understand.”

The Congress leader mocked PM Modi’s ideas when the CEO of the world’s leading company endorsed them, said Goyal.”Nobody around Rahul Gandhi has the guts to tell him that he doesn’t understand. He mocks PM Modi’s ideas when CEO of the world’s leading company endorses them,” Goyal tweeted in response to Rahul’s tweet.
Two union ministers today hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his sarcastic tweet about PM Modi’s views on wind turbines expressed a few days ago during an interaction with Henrik Andersen, head of Danish wind turbine-maker Vestas.
Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi had shared a video of the October 6 interaction with the Vestas President and CEO, and said, “The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him.”
Rahul Gandhi, in his tweet, posted a video of PM Modi during an interaction with the President and CEO of Vestas, Henrik Anderson, poking fun at his ideas on wind turbine energy. “The real danger to India isn’t that our PM doesn’t understand. It’s the fact that nobody around him has the guts to tell him,” Rahul tweeted.
In the video, the Prime Minister is heard saying that if wind turbines could collect moisture from air, besides producing power, it could help tackle drinking water shortage. “The other suggestion I have is that we can separate oxygen from the air using this same turbine…If this can be done, one wind turbine can then provide drinking water, oxygen, and energy…Can your scientists do something to innovate in that direction?” PM Modi said.
Mr Andersen, in response, invited him to Denmark where “you could be the idea developer for our research and development.” Textile minister Smriti Irani  took on Mr Gandhi on Twitter today, referring to him as “Yuvraj,” and saying that he was “ignorant” and “doesn’t understand”.
“They say ignorance is bliss, but rarely in Indian politics has an individual made a conscious effort to sustain his ignorance. It seems the real danger to the Congress flourishes unabashedly and no one seems to have the guts to tell the Yuvraj otherwise,” Ms Irani said, reacting to Mr Gandhi’s tweet.
In the video, the Prime Minister was seen speaking to Henrik Anderson about a host of issues related to the wind energy sector.
PM Modi, during the interaction, pitched the idea that the wind turbines could suck water from the air at places where moisture is more and provide clean, drinking water. “This way,” he said, “with wind energy, we can also get water from the air.”
