DRAG ON. KILL TIME. MS. MAMATA BANNERJEE will tie up with BJP for the next Lok Sabha Elections (whenever they take place). Meanwhile Congress must tie up with CPI-M... and go for a Common Minimum Program.

First and foremost., Congress(I) must drop the "I" and become Indian National Congress [pre-1969 avatar]. Smt. Sonia ji., Sri. Rahul and Smt. Priyanka must abdicate political space. They can serve Mother India in a thousand other ways (other than electoral politics). This will infuse democracy and fresh air within the congress.

Congress must pitch in "The Idea of India" versus. Savarkar's hateful and violent "Hindutva" (portrayed as Nationalism!). Murder and Crime cannot be allowed in the name of religion. That must be the slogan.

But will Smt. Sonia Gandhi, Sri. Rahul and Smt. Priyanka give the ultimate sacrifice for Mother India.. The Idea of India.. or destroy India and its institutions., the way Smt. Indira gandhi destroyed India and its institutions out of love for Sanjay and Rajiv ?
