Rahul’s Act and Speech Are Not In Sync

The Day After - - CONTENT - Taruna Mishra, Luc­know

The op­po­si­tion in par­lia­ment is a vivid de­pic­tion of the gang that could not shoot straight. Af­ter his show-stop­ping hug of Modi, Congress Pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi ap­pears to have re­verted to ho-hum mode. He chose the lack­lus­tre BK Hariprasad as the op­po­si­tion can­di­date at the last minute. And for all Gandhi’s talk of be­ing will­ing to move the Congress to the back­seat if that’s what it will take to win over par­ties that don’t like it (the YSR Congress, for ex­am­ple), he did the op­po­site. By forc­ing a Congress nom­i­nee as the op­po­si­tion’s can­di­date, the TRS, which had been lob­bied hard by the BJP, voted for the BJP — ex­actly what Modi and Shah were hop­ing for.
