Other parties including the main opposition,BJP, said that the Congress was concerned about the recent Opinion Poll surveys which show Congress performing very poor and hence backing a ban.
Digvijay Singh of Congress has blasted yet another fresh speech bomb on PM candidate of BJP, Narendra Modi by stating that he won’t allow Hindu version of Taliban to succeed in India.He also accused the Gujarat CM of hijacking Sardar Patel’s legacy and of ditching ideologies of RSS icons.
Popular for making controversial speeches against anyone who stands against congress,Digvijay Singh had also termed Modi as Ravana and Bhasmasura previously.Question is, Modi has a weapon called Development to battle it out against Congress but what weapon does Digvijay Singh carry to be able to stand against Modi? 🙂

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. 🙂
