Gad­dar to con­test?

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

The meet­ing of rev­o­lu­tion­ary Tel­ugu poet Gad­dar with Congress pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi has raised eye­brows, par­tic­u­larly among those who’ve been carp­ing about #Ur­banNax­als. Gad­dar him­self seems least both­ered about such per­cep­tions. In­stead, he claims, he would con­test as an in­de­pen­dent against Chief Min­is­ter KCR, ob­vi­ously with the sup­port of the Congress, the Left and the TDP, if and when the al­liance takes off from the draw­ing board. The meet­ing was to so­licit sup­port in the fight ‘to save the Con­sti­tu­tion’. Gad­dar claimed he would act as a bridge be­tween the sec­u­lar­ists and the Marx­ists, and travel with RG to the poor­est parts of Ch­hat­tis­garh. RaGa lim­ited his re­sponse to his wish to hear Gad­dar sing rev­o­lu­tion­ary songs.
