Rahul Gandhi has finally declared he is ready to take bigger responsibilities in the party but his two bosses would decide when . Two bosses ? 🙂 .
YSR Congress Party with 17 MLAs and 2 MPs and headed by Jagan Mohan Reddy who is not in good terms with Congress after CBI has arrested him on charges of disproportionate assets case has decided to support UPA candidate Pranab Mukherjee !
Though the party has declared their decision in favour of national interest and above politics and tered abstaining from voting for Presidential Election as against ethics. But, as they say, in politics favors are bond to be returned with counter-favors,it is likely that after the Presidential Election things will start easing out for Jagan for his loyalty and support to the ruling UPA government’s Candidate.
TMC has ultimately declared support to its UPA candidate, Pranab Mukherjee for the Presidential Post and it is quite likely that the party would also support Hamid Ansari of its UPA alliance for Vice-President’s post ! Was this the call of the moment or was it Pranab Mukherjee’s troubleshooting talent,whatever it be, Congress would be the ultimate beneficiary. Follow Detailed News
Mukhtar Ansari, an Independent MLA supported by the ruling Samajwadi Party, and Vijay Mishra of the SP are only released to attend Assembly proceedings and that’s the only outing allowed to them. Both are at present residents of government hospitals and are brought to the Assembly in ambulances.While Ansari is booked for murder, Mishra for attacking a BSP leader and while the country thinks they are serving their punishments, in reality,they got the liberty to attend yesterday’s grand lunch with Pranab Mukherjee.
Well, astonishingly in our country, people do not mind voting for criminals as well.
26th June is the scheduled date for Pranab Mukherjee to resign from Finance Ministry. At a time when our economy is in a shaky state and INR is unstable and has reached its lowest all-time value of 57 , who would be handed over the responsibility ?
Raisina Hill is a locality of Delhi where many important government buildings are located and along with these is the President’s House – Rashtrapati Bhavan.
As of now there is no tough competition between the contenders : Pranab Mukherjee from UPA and P.A.Sangma from NDA. It seems that Pranab Mukherjee will win the race with more number of parties supporting him but the race of politics is like the race of the Hare and the Tortoise.Well, in this case the Hare is taking no chance of making any mistake or taking the race or the Tortoise,lightly ! 🙂
While the Finance Minister is about to quit on the 26th of the month and is busy collecting votes for his Presidential Poll, INR continues to fall against the US dollars to cross the all time low of Rs 57 !
PA Sangma, is so far, getting support from BJP , TMC , SAD ,BJD,AIADMK while Pranab Mukherjee , the contestant from UPA is getting JD(U) and Shiv Sena’s support and from Left parties (except for CPI). Pranab Mukherjee was initially making a clean sweep after Dr Kalam had rejected to contest but PA Sangma has taken the risk of resigning his co-founded party-NCP, to contest for the post. This was yesterday when officially even BJP, the second biggest national party had not declared their support him ! Even Pranab Mukherjee has resigned from the Finance Minister’s post to contest for the Presidential Poll but it looked well-planned but PA Sangma’s candidature was indeed a shocker. He is contesting at the cost of losing his founded party and even risking her daughter’s ministerial position under the UPA government.
Whosoever wins, out of the two, the one who will not, will really lose a lot !
Nobody can take away the benefits Congress is going to get if Pranab Mukherjee, the troubleshooter of the party, becomes the President of India. Serving the second term in alliance has been difficult for the UPA government led by Congress. If not all, at least Mamata Banerjee has never been thinking alike, rejecting many Congress decisions, including the recent issue of not supporting Pranab Mukherjee for Presidential Post.
In case there is any dispute between Mamata led TMC and Congress and they decide to split, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav would support the UPA government,as it seems till date. But Congress would rather prefer sticking to TMC till 2014 General Elections.
However, if and once Pranab Mukherjee becomes the President of India and as expected, if there is a mixed election result of 2014 , where both the UPA and NDA doubt clear win, it would be a call of the President and then all the present effort to push Pranab Mukherjee on President’s chair would yield results in favour of Congress ! No denying that all these are expectations and assumptions and only 2014 knows what it has in its bag for Indian Politics !
