Rahul Gandhi said he has two political gurus-one is his mother Sonia Gandhi and the second is the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh. Looks like Rahul ji is doing a bit of damage control after he offended Dr Singh with his aggressive “complete nonsense” statement addressing the Ordinance on convicted leaders promoted by the PM and the govt,previously.
The controversial Ordinance and proposed Bill to shield convicted lawmakers has been withdrawn after a lot of political drama.The Union Cabinet unanimously decided that both the ordinance with regard to certain sections of the Representation of People’s Act, as well as the Bill would be withdrawn. However, the rush to take the credit of the withdrawal is being made by the opposition party BJP which says it has been protesting the Ordinance since the very beginning.On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi who had trashed the Ordinance by calling it ‘ complete nonsense’ is also being highlighted as a major reason why the withdrawal took place. Well, anyone can take the credit but the fact remains when The Supreme Court had passed on the order whereby the convicted political leaders were banned from contesting or voting, the entire political arena took it too personally.
Prime Minister,Dr Manmohan Singh seemed upset with Rahul Gandhi’s ‘nonsense’ remark on Ordinance on convicted MPs and Rahul Gandhi met the Dr Singh to convey his message that his intentions were not to embarrass the Prime Minister by trashing the Ordinance backed by his own Congress party and the PM.
Looks like ‘Pappu’ can dance now. Rahul ji seems to be a self-dependent politician who is about to graduate from the school of Indian Politics to be declared the PM candidate for UPA officially,soon. 🙂
