Facts Check Analysis If you watch this short video above, it can be clearly be heard Rahul Gandhi Top Aide Sam Pitroda as calling all Indians as Monkeys. He says

"India is not using connectivity effectively. But you know it's world over today, this is a new toy. So all of a sudden to every monkey you have given a new toy and they are fiddling with it. Okay. They don't know what to do with it yet. I think it will take 5-10 years to figure out that you can do a lot more with it than you are doing it. Today, it is entertainment, you know, gossip lies. Lies get amplified on social media," he said.

Recently Sam Pitroda, the Congress Party think tank undermined the Indian Air Strike on the terror camps over the LOC and trivializing the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and the Pulwama attack.

His other remarks earlier, “Don’t know much about attacks, it happens all the time. An attack happened in Mumbai also. We could have then reacted and just sent our planes but that is not right approach. According to me, that is not how you deal with the world. Eight people (26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on the entire nation (Pakistan). Naive to assume that just because some people came here and attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way."

"If you say 300 people were killed, we all need to know that. All the Indians need to know that. Then comes the global media which says nobody was killed, I look bad as an Indian citizen. I would like to know more as I have read in the New York Times & other newspapers, what did we really attack? We really killed 300 people?"
