NcP, conG and the cBi

The Sunday Guardian - - Nation -

Is there any link be­tween CBI train­ing its lens on lob­by­ist Deepak Tal­war for al­legedly us­ing his in­flu­ence within the UPA’s Min­istry for Civil Avi­a­tion to amend bi­lat­er­als and the fact that Gu­jarat elec­tions are round the cor­ner? Don’t for­get the Civil Avi­a­tion Min­is­ter at the time was NCP’s Pra­ful Pa­tel and the BJP is keen to pre­vent an al­liance be­tween the Congress and the NCP. (There is some con­fu­sion as to whether the NCP voted for the BJP or the Congress can­di­date dur­ing Ahmed Pa­tel’s Ra­jya Sabha elec­tion a few months ago.) If that’s the case, then the move may have boomeranged, be­cause NCP leader Sharad Pawar was re­cently heard sin­gling Rahul Gandhi out for praise, stat­ing that “the PM is scared of Rahul’s image makeover”. This is the same Pawar who not long ago was ex­press­ing doubts about Rahul’s lead­er­ship skills.
