NEW DELHI: The anointing of Sonia Gandhi’s political successor assumed a public hue with the Congress placing the entire credit of its success in the by-elections at young Rahul Gandhi’s doorstep. The grand old party’s thank you note to the heir apparent could not have been more elaborate, given its geographical stretch — from Assam to Kerala, by their reckoning, every win was an outcome of his “vision’’. In a grand gesture, the Congress virtually handed over the political initiative and the credit of reviving the party’s footprint across the country to Rahul. “Behind the Congress victories in Kerala, West Bengal, Assam, Uttar Pradesh… is the visible and invisible hand of Rahul Gandhi. It is his message, image and work that are being rewarded,” Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi waxed eloquent. Interestingly, Congress president Sonia Gandhi was not mentioned. His political mentor Digvijay Singh too was forgotten.
As Sonia maino has been colluding and collaborating with Karunanidhi, perhaps, she has learnt that trick of cheating Hindus posing as “Hindus” and blaspheming “Hindus”.
It always works for the naive, innocent, meek, mild……………….Hindus!!
