TH Mustafa, senior Congress leader from Kerela has been suspended for calling Rahul Gandhi a ‘joker’ and blaming him for Congress’ defeat.
In a short tv speech , Sonia Gandhi,the Congress President is seen appealing to the people of India to defeat the ‘divisive and autocratic forces’ in the nation. She attacked the BJP by claiming their vision is clouded with hatred and falsehood.
Looks like , its little too late now. Had it not been better Congress would have worked all this while ?? Will this last minute appeal really work for Congress ??
After a criminal case was registered against Imran Masood,Congress’ Saharanpur candidate,and he was arrested for his hate speech against Modi,Rahul Gandhi’s Saharanpur rally was cancelled. Imran Masood has stated he would chop Modi into pieces and that Gujarat has only 4 percent Muslims but Uttar Pradesh there are 42 percent Muslims. When questioned,Imran said all he meant was he would teach Modi a lesson and that he would say sorry only after Modi says so for 2002 riots in Gujarat.The Congress party seemed sidelining itself from Masood’s controversial remark to the extent that Rahul Gandhi who was scheduled to address a rally in the area cancelled his visit.
Who knows,the party cadres might be feeling at ease after Rahul cancelling his visit. After all, its a tough ask to gather crowd for Rahul.
Nandan Nilekani , the former UIDAI chief and co-founder of Infosys, who has recently joined Congress,disclosed details of his assets while filing his nomination for Lok Sabha.
He recalled when he co-founded Infosys, he had Rs 200 in his pocket and today he has assets worth Rs 7,700 crores !!
But one thing that might be keeping politicians baffled is, if he has already made so much money legitimately, why is he required to join politics ? 😀
After Manish Tewari declared himself unfit and decided not to fight polls from Ludhiana,its the Union Finance Minister,P Chidambaram who is not going to fight elections from Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu from where he was elected an MP in 2004 and 2009 and instead his son Kirti Chidambaram will replace him.
Is this just co-incidence or fear of loss ? 😉
