The rift in the congress is now in the open.One is trying to pull the leg of the other.P Chidamabaram while not being a typical congressi politician like Digvijay Singh but commands more respect amongst the congress members and other political parties.Though P.Chidamabaram is looked upon as a confidant of Sonia he is increasingly toeing the Manmohan Singh line.Thats why BJP has advised him not to resign on Dantewada.And if this is not enough there is another troubled child in the congress in Mr.Taroor.
But the still suspense lies in why the media is not grilling the Sonia-Rahul duo on Dantewada and whats happening in Kashmir as both have a bearing on the stability and security of the country.If the congressmen do not allow the duo to speak on that subject why the hell media is shying away from asking them.And what about the media going silent on Mamtha Bannerjee too.Is it because she has some soft corner for the Maoists they being her new found vote bank?The media has to answer a lot including the OUTLOOK.If the media practices double standards then how at all they can have any credibility.
As suspected by Mr.R.Jagannathan on a possible link and nexus between the church backed notorious christian missionaries driven insurgents of the north east to have supplied arms and explosives to the Maoists as many of the tribal in the Maoists movements are christian converts.Who knows they may have been inspired by how their counterparts could reach the throne in neighboring Nepal.Or it may be possible that they look upon Sonia as a christian to rule this country directly or indirectly.
