Some seem to get very quick court hearing and also very special treatment. For example:
* A court heard and extended former Union minister P. Chidambaram’s arrest for weeks.
* The same minister got relief of weeks in questioning by the Enforcement Directorate.
* Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi could get a Supreme Court hearing to question why the IT department was reopening a tax assessment, citing likely fraud. They get special permission for appearing in court, easily get bail, easily get court hearing.
* Lalu Prasad Yadav, while he cannot contest elections due to criminal conviction, easily got bail.
So we wonder if there cases merit special treatment or are they special, or could there be something else? Sadly, writers have got arrested for expressing their freedom of speech and they are in jails for months. Crores of Sabarimala devotees have to wait for a court hearing.
Get us wondering…

The public and leaders are saying that Rahul Gandhi may have said that the Congress Party, once upon a long time ago, India’s biggest, is a party of muslim men. Even the prime minister has heard or read about such a statement being made.
The question the public and your political opponents want to know is do you care for Muslim women and want to bring equality to them? And if so, then why don’t you pass the –
* Triple talaq bill?
* Nikah halala bill?
* Women’s reservation bill – which will give reservations to women?

During an election rally, Rahul Gandhi said 2 things which no one was expecting:
1) Congress will emerge as the largest party in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, and
2) He (RaGa) will be the next prime minister. Obviously nothing wrong with one making a statement.
However, veteran Dalit leader Ram Vilas Paswan had a simple and quick response to RaGa and responded – “THERE WAS NO VACANCY FOR THE TOP POST OF PRIME MINISTER as Narendra Modi would return to power in 2019“. And let us not forget the PM job is a tough one – not anyone and everyone would be cut out for it? Politics being politics… one needs a thick skin at all times…

Crude posters in Amethi, UP which is Rahul Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency came up showing PM Modi in Ravan’s avatar. While a few do worship Ravan, a brahmin for his valor and intellect, he is considered a villan by the vast majority. So naturally given the popular view of Ravan, such posters serve to insult both PM Modi and his lakhs and crores of his followers. Nobody or group has claimed responsibility – but fingers are pointed towards Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party. While most free speech is protected by our constitution, and those behind these posters have clearly got the attention they were seeking, what else was the purpose of such posters? Are you trying to win votes?

While only poor Rahul Gandhi gets blamed, but the common man in India with a lot of common sense will tell you ==> both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are responsible for the INCREASING SPEED OF CONGRESS MUKHT BHARAT.
So many reasons:
1) excessive corruption,
2) blatant minority appeasement – look what did and is happening in Karnataka, Kerala, Kashmir, and on and on,
3) out of touch with people,
4) no pride in the country,
5) undemocratic parties with disrespect and near abuse of for party leaders,
6) raking up unrelated old issues, and on and on.
A healthy democracy need a strong, energetic and constructive opposition. The dying Congress, India’s oldest party is certainly not the one to provide that.

Initially it might have come across as a joke, but NO it is real. Rahul Gandhi has started reading India’s most sacred and oldest texts – the Bhagwad Gita, Upanishads. The Big Reason – while one might have thought this would help to understand India’s heritage and what binds us all – well not quite. Rahul Gandhi’s objectives are purely political – to understand his opponents as his he fighting them – RSS and the Sangh Parivar, BJP and everyone connected with them. On a related note, a large silent majority probably feels India’s leader present and future should be required to understand India’s most sacred and historical texts…

A well known Congress leader, Shailesh Chaubey was very upset with Rahul Gandhi’s abuse and irresponsible “Khoon Ki Dalali” about the Indian Army’s surgical strikes. He feels Rahul Gandhi lacks political skills and is a disgrace to the political party (not country?), and hence should be sacked from the Congress party and should try something else – Rahul is ~45 years old. The Congress leader even circulated a video with his comments which went viral. So will Congress and Sonia Gandhi act against Rahul Gandhi?

After being an MP for over 10 years, Rahul Gandhi is taking out a 2,500 kilometers padyatra to get to know farmers. Subramanian Swamy noted that Rahul Gandhi knows more about night clubs in France and England than about our farmers. He goes to visit them most of the time, and then once in a while visits India to do some publicity event like padyatra or other thing.

Sonia Gandhi has cancelled the annual Iftaar party, which are more a political event than a religious event. Several reasons have been given for this, one is Rahul Gandhi is on vacation (again) in a undisclosed foreign country for an undisclosed length. Congress party says Iftaar will be marked with distribution of sweets for under-privileged children. But some insiders are saying Congress could be facing money troubles?

Five state assembly results just came out – Assam, West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. In general, Congress did very badly recording the lowest vote share. As the elections are behind us now both Congress members and the rest of the country that might still be paying attention is wondering – where will Rahul Gandhi go for vacation next and for how long? Will he take an extended vacation due to the Congress drubbing?

Of course the BJP and the country seeks answers from not just former Home Minister Chidambaram but also Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi over the Ishrat Jahan case. As has been widely reported, most important actions in the UPA government were allegedly at the direction of Sonia Gandhi. The key question being asked is, as Congress could not fight ex-CM (and now PM) Modi politically, was Congress trying to eliminate (or kill) or encourage to be killed?

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.

Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi are other Congress leadership is enmeshed in a growing number of legal proceedings. Sonia-Rahul, the mother-son duo are out on bail in the National Herald case. Rahul Gandhi by himself is facing sedition charges in multiple courts, Digvijaya Singh the outspoken Congress leader is out on bail on a recruitment scam. Now we learn that former Union Minister P Chidambaram, allegedly tampered with evidence in the terrorist Ishrat Jehan case. One has to wonder where he did it on his own or from instructions from the top Congress leadership. Chidambaram’s son, Karti, is alleged to have amassed excessive wealth in various parts of the world during 2006-2014 Chidambaram was the Union Minister.

Congress Govt has manipulated text books extensively, but nobody has talked about it. To quote just a few lines: ‘Bhagat Singh was terrorist’, ‘Godhra Massacre done by Hindus’, RaGa (RAHUL GANDHI IS A NATIONAL HERO) – since when? Congress was teaching this to 5th standard children in CBSE. Any surprise – there is NO mention of Kashmir ethnic cleansing, Sikh riots, loss of life in Bangladesh war, Emergency and so many other much worse incidents, or even mention of what caused the Godhra riots (Muslim mobs burning alive pilgrims returning home in a train coaches).
