For the ongoing UP elections, Sonia Gandhi who represents UP in the Lok Sabha, wrote a letter to the voters to elect Congress to enable development and to restore development schemes which had been snatched away. Leaving aside the message of this letter which is plainly wrong, this must be a first in campaigning of writing a letter instead of showing up in person. Not reported leaving people to wonder about the letter was if the letter was in Hindi, English or some other language. If it was in Hindi – as would be expected, Sonia Gandhi does not know Hindi writing, then the question arises as to who write the letter?

Jayalalitha symbolized woman power for many Tamils and many considered her as the iron lady. MPs, MLAs and Ministers all fell at her feet. On many occasions, all 37 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 13 MPs in the Rajya Sabha did namaskaram or lay down flat to pay respects to their leader. On other occasions, her minister and party cadre would prostrate before her vehicle, her helicopter or in other public places. The successor chief minister, O Panneerselvam took his oath of office with Jayalalithaa’s photo on hand.

The Congress after its massive Lok Sabha defeat and with only 44 MPs, has appointed a total of 52 spokespersons including – 4 senior spokespersons, 17 new spokespersons and 31 media panelists and 2 media coordinators. Could this have been done in preparation of the party’s repeated blockade of the Parliament functioning – which effort has started crumbling and the party is developing a bad reputation? Could this be to put the ruling party on defensive – if so, it has not succeeded? Or could this be protect Gandhi from bad name or deflect the non-functioning of Rahul Gandhi – also nice try, but has not worked out?

Subramanian Swamy has extracted the papers from the UK company law authorities which show that Rahul Gandhi had called himself “British” on the annual returns of UK-based “Backops Limited” in 2005 and 2006. Being an MP, this is a really serious matter – so now the Parliament Ethics Panel of the Lok Sabha has asked Rahul to respond on whether he is Indian or British. It is a shock that a congress leader has created these doubts.

By not showing in Lok Sabha where he is an MP, Rahul Gandhi ran away from a fight he started. One day he boasts,”I will speak, but they will not let me speak. Because they are scared of what I will say,”. But the next day he does not show up or did he run away? Now people call him a coward – and they may have a point.

Rajya Sabha worked only 55 hours of the 112 in this session for under 50%, while Lok Sabha worked 115 hours as against a scheduled 114 hours – what a difference, and several Opposition parties seem to be happy about this – with a goal to directly block important legislation for the country. Treasury benches say that Congress came up with “manufactured lame excuses” to disrupt Parliament, day after day.
