All the intellectuals know that Congress is trying hard to improve their image and Rahul Gandhi is their trump card. After losing on all fronts, Congress had to play it with the Rahul Card to gain sympathy and show people a ‘hope’ in the form of ‘young’, ‘dynamic’ leader who walks in villages, talks to farmers, eats with them and sympathizes with them. UPA is also trying to keep him in the news and have him on the TV at least for 2 – 4 hours every day. I’m watching TV right now and the ‘Samay’ channel is showing a ‘breaking news’ – a gunman entered the mob breaching the security and the security guards nabbed him. The whole purpose of the news seems to project Rahul Gandhi as the one who doesn’t care for his own security to be with common people.
Rahul Gandhi, obviously, doing this for the sake of votes. Because if he cared, he’d not keep mum when UPA ordered police action against the peaceful protesters who accompanied Baba Ramdev. I’m even wondering, several decades after Independence which were more or less dedicated to UPA ruling, why are there no signs of development in Uttar Pradesh? If Rahul Gandhi really cares for people and farmers, why is he not asking his mom to do something in villages? After all, Manmohan Singh follows all her instructions.
I just hope people won’t get fooled by the Rahul Gandhi show.
