Back in 2009, I had a conversation with my father about why Sonia Gandhi is giving away the crown she apparently had worked so hard to wear. My father, a middle class man in his 50's and otherwise very astute political analyst, had no convincing explanation. Perhaps he along with the nation was bought in to the theory that Sonia Gandhi is being very kind to keep the PM post open for more deserving senior Congress leader. So much was the disappointment of seeing Saffron party loose that election that I left that question unanswered then.
Despite the next general election being faaaaar away, through one of the twitter discussions this question popped up again. This time I made some attempt. Read the Indian citizenship act to find out if what Mr. Swamy is preaching in this following video is true or not..
Well, certainly I will not answer what I found in the act. It is for YOU, the alert and concerned citizen to pick the book/website and read and do some fact finding. What I want to talk about is utter failure of BJP(Bharatiya Janta Party) and every other party that sits in the Loksabha as 'opposition' to bring the relevant act details to the concerned aam admi. BJP's brouhaha back in 2009 over Sonia Gandhi's anticipated election as PM candidate by Congress party was ineffective and quickly lost steam in the eyes of middle class simply because this class, which you and me belongs to, believes more in facts and rules as we are 'very' law abiding people. Had BJP been able to share this 'info' with the people, they cud have spared themselves from hurting their throats and earning more respect as a by-product. After all a Harvard graduate (and present lecturer there) who had been ex-union law minister of our nation won't be leveling baseless claims without his homework, would he?
