Yet Delhi has been hesitant to accept a leadership role.
Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, You’d think wrong. here are three very good reasons why Rahul should speak up: One, he has a lot to prove when it comes to parliamentary performance "Those who don’t speak in the House accuse us of not allowing them to speak" Finance Minister Arun Jaitley pointed out after Rahul’s outburst he’s right As this report points out Rahul Gandhi’s performance in Lok Sabha has been well below average Long before the catnap that embarrassingly caught television cameras’ attention rankings compiled by the India Today Group in partnership with two NGOs — the Satark Nagrik Sangathan (SNS) and the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) — showed him to be languishing at the bottom In five years of the 15th Lok Sabha Rahul’s attendance was only 4261 per cent His attendance at Standing Committee meetings was worse at 1364 per cent "Rahul has spent only 5368 per cent of the MPLADS funds allocated to him Even the respondents who were polled by ADR in Amethi have a very poor impression of the development work that has been done in the constituency The Amethi MP has a perception rating of only 558 out of 10" the report said If he’s no longer the unwilling prince after the Lok Sabha elections he can hardly be seen as backing off on an issue that he has passionately advocated Two it’s about Uttar Pradesh The communal violence discussion is centred around the UP bypolls coming up later this year No less than party president Sonia Gandhi acknowledged that when she launched into the BJP during her speech in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday evening She held the BJP responsible for the rise of communalism Six hundred comunal incidents and counting since the NDA government came to power she said appearing to cite a series of investigative reports published by The Indian Express last week which pointed out damningly that sixty percent of these incidents were reported in areas around Assembly seats going to bypolls "More than 600 incidents of communal violence happened in Uttar Pradesh and perhaps as many in Maharashtra" she said adding that "during the UPA I and II rule hardly any such incident had happened" The Congress does not really stand a chance in the coming bypolls Still Rahul has a responsibility to the Congress’s state cadre and those who will be part of the election machinery when the polls are announced He is one of just two MPs the Congress has in the Lok Sabha from the all-important state Its candidates were roundly rejected by the electorate finishing third or worse in as many as 72 out of UP’s 80 LS seats The SP’s battleplan is ready in fact its footsoldiers are more or less in the thick of the action whether it is in Muzaffarnagar or in Kaanth or Saharanpur or Meerut Just what is the Congress’s gameplan especially if one of its two MPs fails to speak in Lok Sabha on what is arguably turning into UP’s biggest election issue now Three he can’t risk being seen as playing politics with communalism Sonia told the Congress Parliamentary Party on Wednesday that the process of rebuilding and restoring the confidence of the public in the Congress Party has begun "We have been reduced in numbers to an all time low in the Lok Sabha But we have not been reduced in spirit" PTI quoted Gandhi as saying She said the work of the Congress party is "in Parliament in public forums across the country in our media and in the streets and homes of ordinary Indians everywhere" If communalism is more than just a convenient trope for Congress to shout itself hoarse about then its top leaders should surely discuss their concerns on the matter and be seen doing so Otherwise the main opposition party appears to be bereft of issues as it struggles to relocate its toehold in the national imagination Worse the Congress runs the risk of being seen as turning communalism into little more than election-time point-scoring A disproportionately large number of Tunisian recruits — some 3, the violence that Tunisia has seen in recent years has been largely focused on security forces, "In the interest of maintenance of public order, This has severely affected my business as I find it difficult to make online transactions", The writer is a former secretary to the government who handled army procurement in the 1990s For all the latest Opinion News,“Rangana Herath is one of my role models.28.
