Prime Minister,Dr Singh and Gujarat Chief Minister,Narendra Modi, shared stage in Ahmedabad while inaugurating the renovated Museum of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel. Both the leaders praised Sardar Patel for his contribution as a patriotic politician of his times and took the opportunity to hit out at eachother as well.Modi said Sardar Patel deserved to be the first Prime Minister of the nation and had he been the PM the fortune of the country would have been different.Manmohan Singh countered Modi by stating Sarder Patel was a secular man and that he and Nehru(the first Indian PM) had deep mutual respect.
As per the Minister of External Affairs,Salman Khurshid, the Indian Prime Minister,Dr Manmohan Singh had given a very straight forward and crisp answer to Pakistani Prime Minister,Nawaz Sharif on the Kashmir issue when both the PMs had met in New York alongside UN General Assembly. According to Khurshid,Dr Singh declared he did not become the PM of India to re-draw boundaries,to Nawaz Sharif.
Guess this statement was limited to re-drawing International Boundaries only because it is the same Dr Singh led UPA Govt which has recently re-drawn boundaries of a state once called Andhra Pradesh and given birth to new states of Telangana and Seemandhra attracting criticisms and praises,simultaneously.

Rahul Gandhi has been regularly making news these days with his statements at different rallies. To add another feather to his list of remarkable statements , he recalled while campaigning for 2009 elections in Bundelkhand,he got stomach bugs due to drinking village water and was bitten by about 25000 mosquitoes. BTW, is there any gadget to count the number of mosquitoes attacking us ? 😀
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that he was not above the law of the land and that CBI can ask him anything on coal scam and that he had nothing to hide. The opposition demanded his interrogation and resignation as he held direct charge of the Coal Ministry when two coal blocks in Odisha were assigned to a firm owned by industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla. Interestingly, the CBI, is ideally considered Govt’s pet. 🙂
Rahul Gandhi, in a rally got emotional talking about divisive politics blaming BJP for doing the same and spreading gatred.He said hatred killed his grand mother, Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi and that he did not care even if he gets assassinated some day.
Well,who would bother assassinating him and most importantly WHY, is the biggest brainstorming question !! 🙂

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) started the excavation work at the Unnao fort after a hindu saint,Sadhu Shobhan Sarkar,claimed that there were thousand of tonnes of gold buried under the ruins of Unnao fort after he dreamt of the same. His dream spread like wildfire and forced the ASI to start the treasure hunt.
If we think a little, its just the ruling party leaders who may get the real benefit if such treasure is dug out. 😉
