Anyone who has ever been fortunate enough to meet Rahul Gandhi or listen to him would agree that he is by far the most dashing of politicians that we have in our country as of today. It is not often that girls go gaga over a politician for his looks.
Recently, we saw a spate of land acquisitions that followed after the C.M. of U.P. issued an emergency provision for the purpose of acquiring land from the farmers. Several parties protested the act. Rahul Gandhi went a step further by going on a padyatra. The official statement behind going on such a travail is to create an awareness among the farmers and the people in general about the atrocities being committed by the U.P. government.
But some are suspecting the timing of the very act. With the U.P. elections scheduled to take place next year, it might well be seen as an opportune moment for the Congress to start a revolution against the U.P. government. Whether it be a political stunt or not, as long as it is helping improve the conditions of the farmers in U.P., it will be taken in good regard. This doesn’t mean that the Congress will come out with a clean image after such an initiative as the Congress as a whole has much to answer seeing the plethora of controversies (e.g. 2G Scam etc.) surfacing at the National Level.
