Finally, Modi Meets Rahul Gandhi, Opposition Unity a Farce?

When Rahul gandhi told media that his information on personal corruption of Prime Minister Narendra Modi would trigger an earthquake, not many took it seriously but the PM himself came down finally to meet the Congress leader and his team, bereft of other opposition leaders.

One thing is clear that there is more to what Rahul Gandhi said on TV channels than what was ridiculed by BJP supporters on the social media. Secondly, what Venkaiah Naidu says holds no water now as the PM himself is ready to sit with the opposition and discuss.

Thirdly, the so-called waiver of farmers’ loans may not happen in toto as Congress would gain from it now. Some diluted measure may be forwarded by the government though it may take few more months to become a reality.

Fourthly, demonetisation will remain a tormentor throughout the country for at least six more months going by the revelation of huge bundles of printed new currency reaching the recipients without the banking route.

Fiftly, if you are a VIP businessman, you can manipulate the system. The corruption is so deep-rooted that a Chennai mint in connivance with a bank has allegedly shipped new currency bundles worth Rs.106 crore directly to a Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Trust Board member J. Sekhar Reddy. While the AP government immediately sacked him, the seizure speaks volumes.

So, the demonetisation is not as pure an intent as the Centre and BJP leaders argue. There’s more to it than that appears and the Congress knows it and Rahul Gandhi is coming out openly still. Now even the so-called opposition unity is a myth.
