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 ? 😉
Addressing close to 600 women from self-help groups in Assam’s Jorhat Congress Vice President,Rahul Gandhi got a surprise kiss on cheek and forehead by one of the women while shaking hands.
Well….now who says answering ‘women empowerment’ to almost all questions asked by Arnab Goswami was that bad an answer given by Rahul Gandhi?
Rahul Gandhi’s very first official interview since joining politics and that too on ‘Frankly Speaking with Arnab Goswami’ has drawn a queue of controversies.Some say he should have apologized for the 1984 Sikh riots and some say how he could accuse Modi of 2002 Gujarat riots when the Supreme Court has declared him clean.
However,the 1 hour 20 mins video of this interview has seen Rahul Gandhi dodging many direct questions asked by interviewing journalist Arnab Goswami . To, all most, all questions asked by Arnab ,Rahul would talk about youth and women empowerment and the youth joining politics. At times,the answers sounded totally out of the context and absurd.Like, when asked about his views on Narendra Modi , Rahul would talk about youth and women empowerment. 😀
This interview has made Rahul Gandhi as smart as Rahul Mahajan looks on TV screen,forsure!
And here is a perfect take on Rahul’s interview with Arnab Goswami by renowned TV host Cyrus Brocha
Dear Visitors,I request you to please spare a few seconds more to give your very valuable feedback on how am I doing.
Congress Vice President , Rahul Gandhi has asked the Prime Minister to grant Jain community of India a minority status.After all,this is the age-old politics vote-bank,in the name of secularism.
And here is an outstanding article I came across on BeingCynical asking How to Spot Seculars. 🙂
A businessman,Saurabh Rastogi, was slapped with charges of rash driving by police for “dangerously” overtaking car of Robert Vadra,son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi.
Recently someone else had overtaken the political car of Congress in Delhi.Forget fine,he was awarded with support from outside to form a govt in Delhi.No points for right guesses !! 😉 😀
Remember, the Pied Piper nursery rhyme?
With the arrival of 2014 accompanying AAP govt in the national capital,the battle of 2014 General Elections is becoming intense and the results are looking unpredictable,yet again. In between, it seemed,BJP led by Narendra Modi with the mantra of -DEVELOPMENT would make it to the power.If not a clean sweep by BJP, surely, the NDA , as a whole, may have formed its Govt in Centre.But,to the astonishment of many political analysts ,major political parties and the common man, Aam Aadmi Party, led by Arvind Kejriwal did immensely well in the Delhi Polls and although they managed 28 seats out of 70,they ended up making their govt in Delhi with the support of Congress. BJP chose to be in the opposition with 31 seats.
However, the results in Delhi gave AAP the confidence to think national. They have chosen 10 states and are aiming 100 seats for the upcoming General Elections. Now,the present scenario assures that those who are fed up of both the BJP and Congress but chose BJP over Congress, may opt for AAP . Moreover,AAP has managed to wake up those sections of voters who considered voting a waste of time.Those who prefer keeping themselves away from politics,all in all,as they felt their votes would hardly make a difference to clean the corrupt politics of India.
Looks like the Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘development in Gujarat’ will have to compete with another Pied Piper playing the flute of ‘Commoners fight against Corruption by Indian politicians’. By the way,what is Rahul Gandhi planning for 2014 GE ? 😀

While campaigning for his party in Chattisgarh, Rahul Gandhi attacked BJP claiming they were the World Champions of Corruption. 😀
While there is no denying that there is no party in India which can claim itself cent percent corruption free,but Congress handing over the trophy of corrupt party to BJP is a little too generous. Ain’t it ? 😉
The Election Commission of India has asked Rahul Gandhi , the Congress Vice-President , to explain his ‘ISI remark’ after the BJP complained about him of violating the model code of conduct pre-elections. He was given a week’s time while his office said he remained busy during the festival hence the commission has granted him another 4 days to explain.In one of his speeches in the recent past, Rahul Gandhi had said that some security agencies informed him that the minority riot victims of the Muzaffarnagar riots are being contacted by Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI to join terror outfits. Rahul had accused the BJP of playing communal politics even in Muzaffarnagar riots which is provoking differences between communities.
Rahul Gandhi’s speeches always remain under the radar of Media and Opposition as much as Narendra Modi’s and this is yet another addition to his controversial statements in the past. His previous theories like Poverty is a state of Mind and Dalits need Jupiter’s escape velocity to succeed are already popular and it seems like the ISI recruitment theory would need an explanation too.
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 Allahabad Congress has passed a resolution demanding Priyanka Gandhi/Vadra be contesting polls from Phulpur,once the constituency of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Although, the Congress party has been denying any such involvement of Priyanka,still speculations are strong that she is being kept as the last trump card to be opened closer to the 2014 polls.
Well,Modi seems to be too big a personality to be overshadowed by any Congress leader or member of Gandhi family.
