Shooting off his mouth!!

I wonder why Rahul Gandhi (RG) chose the age of Achutanandan, CM of Kerala as the focus of his election campaign in that state!!  The CM has returned the compliment by calling Rahul as “amul baby” which has been found in bad taste by none other than Pranab Mukherjee.  But then what about Rahul’s comment on the age of the CM, Mr FM?

RG seems to have the problem of selective amnesia given that he had just campaigned for the DMK Congress alliance in Tamilnadu where the incumbent CM Karunanidhi is no younger than his Kerala counterpart!!

And the person who rules the country, our PM is not very younger at 78 and neither is the Finance Minister who has already turned 75.

And this gaffe comes soon after his mother campaigning for the opposition during her election speech!!

High time for the party elite to think, contemplate and ponder before they open their mouth!!

Pscycophancy, thy name is Congress!!

Day not far when Rahul becomes PM: says Pranab Mukherjee, the person who reportedly felt he deserved to be the PM immediately after the assassination of Indira Gandhi.  Hence he was sidelined by Rajiv and his coterie for quite some time and spent his time in wilderness.  And being a politically savvy person (except on that one occasion in 1984) he would not have made that remark without realizing the implications.  What a great fall for a person who was once India’s finance minister!!

This remark of his has also revealed the thinking within Congress that Sonia can / will not be the PM.  Given her age and ‘experience’, it is too early to write her off but if the Congress is now pitching Rahul, they have given hopes of Sonia becoming the PM.

If someone reading this blog thought that I am equating Pranab with Congress, then be informed that his is not the lone voice.  Digivijay Singh, Arjun Singh, Veerapa Moily and Prithviraj singh have been saying it different fora.  Our PM had already endorsed that Rahul is the future of our Nation during the UP polls itself!

Back to Monarchy!  Let’s welcome the new King!!
