Dare anyone criticize the Government in front of Digvijay Singh or Salman Khurshid ! Be it Mamata Di, Anna Hazare or Baba Ramdev , Digvijay has never missed any opportunity to take dig on any of these and many others who seem to be accusing the government . In the recent past, Union Law Minister, Salman Khurshid seemed to be added in the team of ‘Unofficial Speakers of Congress’ and now he misses no chance criticizing Team Anna in the media !
Well,is it right on part of leaders of national level popularity to indulge in such activities at the risk of their repute ? Do they not understand that in the process of counter-attacking Team Anna and referring Baba Ramdev as fraud they lose their own gravity ? Is it necessary to contradict people just like that ?
After Anna Hazare’s announcement of a new political party, among the most expected Congress leaders to comment and dare Team Anna where Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid ! 😉
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 !
The ever unhappy allies TMC and Congress of the UPA alliance has a different view on the selection of Presidential Candidate as well. Mamata Banerjee has cleared her support for Dr APJ Kalam and even the NDA is indicating its interest towards Dr Kalam and Samajwadi Party Supremo seems to be supporting Mamata’s decision. Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee also stated that she would leave if the UPA thinks her party is a liability to the alliance.
Congress, on the other hand, is doing all it would take to make Pranab Mukherjee the President.
Well, out of the two candidates,Dr Kalam and Pranab Mukherjee, undoubtedly the position is much deserved by Dr Kalam whom one can trust as a President of deeds. He would never take decisions partially favouring any specific political party at the cost of national interest. But 2014 elections results are so predictable about an upcoming inconsistent government that Congress well not leave any stones unturned to make sure Pranab Mukherjee becomes the President to favour the Congress in situations of political crises. Anyways,it is Indian Politics and anytime a third name may emerge and become the President, to surprise the nation! 🙂
TMC supremo, Mamata Banerjee’s efforts to pull her own minister,Dinesh Trivedi, down from the post of Railway Minister has failed, so far as the PM clarified , he would want Trivedi to continue till the Budget Session. Now even the pressure from within the party seemed to be failing. Trivedi wants TMC supremo to give in writing that she wants him to quit! Some voices inside the TMC are also rising against the supremo’s stubborn behaviour towards Trivedi.

Well, even after being the Congress ally,TMC has difference of opinion with the UPA government on a number of issues and somehow Congress never seem to have dared against didi(Mamata Banerjee) for the fear of Government collapsing,before schedule (2014), in case , TMC withdraws support in agitation. However, this time the demands of Mamata Banerjee to sack Trivedi was declined on the face. What gave Congress the confidence to dare the TMC, all of a sudden ? Well, this is politics and hence there are no permanent friends and enemies, here.Quite possible, if SP(22 seats) or BSP(21 seats) supports UPA in case TMC(19 seats) withdraws the same , the Government would still continue and Mulayam Singh Yadav or Kumari Mayawati can easily bargain his/her support for bigger favours !
