Siddaramaiah
Bangalore, May 8: Congress leader Siddaramaiah, while speaking to reporters following his victory in Varuna constituency, thanked three Gandhis for his victory. The first two were, as expected, Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, but guess who the third was? It was the country's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, whom Siddaramaiah referred to as 'Manmohan Gandhi'.

The Congress's domestic culture is well-known in all circles, political or non-political, by this time but such goof-up by an important state politician who is likely to become its chief minister, is amazing. Is the party slowly inching towards a situation where all its members will have a 'Gandhi' surname? Siddaramaiah's reference to the PM in such a careless manner was simply an unacceptable act.

But who cares? As long as a party member utters the word Gandhi, it is absolutely perfect. The mood is good in the house, buddy, don't spoil it by raising non-issues. The PM is, as they say, is another beneficiary of the Gandhis. But don't listen to them. They are among the losers today.
