Sonia-Manmohan-Rahul
New Delhi, Sept 30: Call it a damage control by the Congress party President Sonia Gandhi, especially after Rahul Gandhi's comments on the ordinance, the former supported Prime Minister Manmohan Singh aggressively in a congress rally in Karnataka.

"They may make fun of the prime minister but I want them to know that the whole party is behind him," said Mrs Gandhi referring to the opposition BJP," she said.

She further emphasized her point saying that "many good work has happened under his leadership."

The backing comes after her son and the vice-president of Congress Rahul Gandhi attacked the ordinance passed by the Prime Minister that overturned the Supreme Court's law on suspending politicians having criminal records.

Sonia Gandhi's expression of support, perhaps, was an attempt to save the face of the party, which is alleged to be going through a rough patch.
