    MUM is the word

    A lot of wave has been generated by our electronic media about the padyatra of the yuvaraja. And what is he doing? Just fomenting political trouble, discontent etc. Land aquistion is the ONLY issue. In the brouhaha, where is the aam admi and his aam problems? Oh, what is that drivel?

    Twice in a day he was questioned about HIGH prices. This is an issue for all, even in villages, even for those who do not own land in villages. Twice in a day, he behaved as if mmonh mein dahi jama tha. Twice he was MUM. Perhaps he had no briefing about this issue. Or rising prices do not bother him. Perhaps he can think of only ONE issue at a time, due to his limited faculties.

    Why should RGandhi be answerable? He does not hold any portfolios, nor he is a Cabinet Minister.

    La la. Why should he? Then what was he doing there at all? Oho, he is ia politician, YOUTH leader. Rising prices do not concern the youth?

    It was in yesterday's news. La la. Also, yesterday in programme Agenda if IBN7, there was Renuka Chaudhary. She repeatedly said: It is is PM or govt to speak on this or that. Till Ravi Shankar asked her in what capacity she is discussing this and that?

    All I say to those who ask for videos is that they should keep abreast of the national news, specially between 8 and 10 PM.

    The kind of dynasty worship going on the media is simply very revolting. Rahul Baba is being projected as the the next best thing happened to the world since the sliced bread. Sample these headlines on Congress (I) mouthpiece rediff ..

    'I felt like I was talking to my own son' :rotfl:(Then you should ask for your cut from the swiss black money)

    PIX: When Rahul had dry roti, slept on a charpoy :rolleyes: (more than 50% India sleeps on Charpoy. What' so special with our Yuvraj of he sleeps on charpoy)

    Rahul's padyatra energised democracy (Again what is so special?)

    Rahul following footsteps of the Mahatma: Jaiswal :pound: (This takes the cake)

    I wonder where is the objectivity in the media. Something really wrong with our media.

    For those who are great buffs of links and videos etc.

    ALIGARH: Rahul Gandhi ducked queries on inflation and the recent hike in petrol and LPG prices as national issues, which are the bugbear of the Congress government, chased him during his padyatra through villages along the Yamuna Expressway.

    The Congress leader, however, posted a strong reply on corruption: another vulnerability of the regime. He also faced queries on Jat reservation and the delay in land acquisition amendment bill for which he indirectly blamed the Trinamool Congress's resistance.

    On the last day of the padyatra, Rahul mingled freely with villagers and opened himself to questions. While his walkathon was about land acquisition by Mayawati government, villagers did not spare him of other issues which have been bothering them. The reminder that elections are not going to be a single-issue affair was also a clear warning that urgent repair job on issues of corruption and inflation was a political imperative.

    At Bajna, Rahul was stumped by a query on inflation which was "hurting the farmers as much as land issues". The young leader gave the question a pass. A young girl had asked the same question on Thursday and met the same silence.

    He was surprised when at Chandpur village a young boy sought his views on corruption at the Centre. Rahul did not evade a reply, saying ministers were in jail and "leaders" were acted against in Maharashtra: a clear reference to A Raja's imprisonment and the removal of Ashok Chavan. "Wherever there is corruption, we are taking action," he said. Asked about who all had been acted against by the persistent youth, Rahul advised him to read newspapers to know the details.

    At Bajna, the final destination of his padyatra late on Friday evening, Rahul was caught off-guard when a person sought an answer on reservation for Jat community at the Centre. Rahul ignored the query, like inflation.

    The young leader kept facing queries, village after village, on Centre's failure to promulgate land acquisition amendment bill, a bill which the Centre has long touted as the solution for the problem of states' collusion with private companies for land. Rahul said, "If a law is made in five minutes, it will be bad. We are trying to make a good law that runs for many years and does not become irrelevant in 20-25 years. We have a coalition government at the Centre and we have to discuss with allies. Else, we will make a law and Bengal may say no to it."

    The reference, by way of example, hinted at the reality that Mamata Banerjee had stalled the bill which has been on the table for two years now. Rahul added that the bill was likely to be passed in the coming session of Parliament.
