Rahul's temple-hopping is setting off some disturbances within the Opposition sphere. For one, it has not gone down well with the Marxist party, which feels its staunch secular credentials would get damaged if it is seen in proximity with the Congress. In addition, in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress is displaying some softness towards savarnas, who have their reasons to be miffed with the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government. That's why Mayawati too got spurned. It seems the DMK too is uncomfortable with Rahul's 'Hindu Lite' turn, fearful that its pro-Dravidian, pro-minority street cred would get hurt if it consorts with Rahul in this mood. Plus, MK Stalin, it seems, is not ready to part with more than 5-6 seats for the GOP. Deve Gowda too has expressed similar apprehensions to Yechury and others. Yechury, it seems, complained to Sonia Gandhi. This is the situation in which Naidu has taken over the role of alliance-making, trying to smoothen the creases, the way Harkishan Singh Surjeet did two-and-a-half decades ago. Unlike Yechury, Babu has a personal agenda too. He's convinced Governor ESL Narasimhan is plotting his overthrow.
