Rahul Gandhi will certainly find this offensive. In fact, anyone who has some sense and is not a hardline anti-Congress fellow will find it offensive, too!

After kicking up a storm with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image in search results of criminals, Google is wading into another controversy. It returns the name of Rahul Gandhi to the question: Who is Pappu in India?



“Pappu” is the nickname given to the Congress vice-president by his detractors on social media. The word is used as an insult mocking the intellectual capacity of the Gandhi scion.
