During the much talked about interview with Times Now Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, Rahul Gandhi was asked about his Cambridge degree.

Goswami raised the issue of Subramanian Swamy taking a dig at Rahul's M Phil degree from Cambridge University saying that the 'degree was a lie.'

Rahul in response to this said: "You want me to show you my degree, I can show you my degree. He has probably seen my degree, I have given a sworn affidavit saying that I have got these degrees."

Here is a new revelation about Rahul Gandhi's degree at Cambridge.

An article published in the Telegraph on Feb 19 says:

"Rahul Gandhi took the name 'Rahul Vinci' when he studied for a year at Trinity College, Cambridge, from 1994-95...University sources pointed out that the 'Red Book', which contains the names of Cambridge University members, lists him as: 'VINCI, Rahul T MPHIL95.' The “T” stands for his college, Trinity, where both his great grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, and father, Rajiv Gandhi, were undergraduates."

"Given his demonstrated incompetence, it does make one wonder about cambridge University and Trinity College's standards. "

Given his demonstrated incompetence, it does matter to Cambridge and Trinity.

 It doesn't really matter whether Nonsense has an MPhil or not. Given his demonstrated incompetence, it does make one wonder about cambridge University and Trinity College's standards. As a matter of interest, what is Nonsense's undergraduate degree? Does he have one from St Stephen's?

>> University sources pointed out that the 'Red Book', which contains the names of Cambridge University members, lists him as: 'VINCI, Rahul T MPHIL95.'

Reminds me of Ranchoddas Shamaldas Chanchad.

 Why does Rahul Gandhi need to go to UK to get a degree ?Does it not show that India's Longest Ruling dynasty has no faith in the kind of education system they built in India?

It is important that NDA/BJP raises this point and it is also another reason why we shoudl allow foreign universities to set campuses in India without any restrictions. Let us end this hypocrisy of preaching social justice and allowing our elite to have better education in foreign shores.

"Rahul Gandhi took the name 'Rahul Vinci' when he studied for a year at Trinity College, Cambridge"

You mean he TOOK a name that was different from what was in his passport ? Is that allowed ?
