Sonia where are you headed?
A stark reminder for us the people that Sonia Gandhi is the boss, not the P.M. Dr. Manmohan Singh. Well, we know that already.
Even then these type of banners irritate me. They underline the fact that Sonia stands a head taller than anybody in the Congress even though she is not the P.M.
Wonder what her game plan is. To become the P.M if the Congress wins again, in the next elections? The last time there was a huge controversy over her becoming the P.M. as the opposition raked up the issue of her being of foreign origin. Does she feel that the electorate has been sufficiently softened up and is ready to accept her as the P.M in 2008? Is this what is going on in the mind of the Congress? Because if it is, then all of us who are thinking of voting for a Congress candidate in the general election next year better keep that in mind.
And well, if Sonia is the boss, then she might as well become the boss. Let’s drop the pretences, let’s stop being hypocritical. And let her face the music that comes with becoming the first P.M of foreign origin.
