The Fault in Rahul Gandhi's Gotra: Union Science Minister Harsh Vardhan Gets Trolled for Getting Into 'Technicality'
Harsh Vardhan advised Smriti Irani to ignore such statements. It is then that the minister goes on to explain why, "according to the gotra system", Rahul Gandhi can never be a Dattatreya.
Twitterati trolled Harsh Vardhan over his explanation for Rahul Gandhi's gotra
Irked by the revelation ahead of assembly elections, Union textiles minister Smriti Irani said that as an Indian, a person's first religion, belief and duty is 'Hindustani'. However, her colleague Harsh Vardhan advised her to ignore such statements. It is then that the minister goes on to explain why, "according to the gotra system", Gandhi can never be a Dattatreya.
"Jawaharlal Nehru's gotra was 'Dattatreya' because he was Brahmin. His sons would have inherited his gotra. However, Indira Gandhi can't transfer her father's gotra to her son. Thus, Rajiv Gandhi, being a son of a Parsi (Feroz Gandhi), can't have Dattatreya gotra," Vardhan explains, adding that Irani should not pay heed to the claim and enjoy the 'destruction' of Congress.

"I had no problem (with Gandhi's gotra claim) because as per the Vedas 'brahma janati iti brahmanah', which means a Brahmin need not be born to Brahmin parents. But when you build your base with lies, you are sure to lose trust. People look for capability and credibility and never for caste, religion or race," he says.
The explanation seems to have cracked up Twitterati, who had a field day trolling the 'technology minister' over his "degree in entire medicine".
Looks like the minister got degree in "Entire Medicine"— Sushobhan (@sushovan1409) November 29, 2018
"There are 23 pairs of chromosomes in a human cell. One half of a pair comes from the female and other from male. And then there is the mitochondrial DNA. Brushing up your science," a Twitter user said.

One half of a pair comes from the female & other from male
Now, that makes it equal
XX pair makes the zygote a female and XY pair makes it a male
And then there is the mitochondrial DNA (See Pic)

Why this tweet??— Jyothi 🌈 (@MrsNair_1112) November 29, 2018
To remind you the science YOU studied in SCHOOL level...
And to remind you that you are an MBBS doctor, and minister for science and technology, not minister for gaushala or pindaan as someone already mentioned!!
"Is this your sole preoccupation as science and technology minister?" a social media user asked.

Others said with such research India will soon become a "superpower", another suggested that Vardhab should be "Cabinet Minister for Gotra Finding".
