Why is Shri Rahul Gandhi all smiles?
Shri Subramanian Swamy has revealed in detail the back ground of the great “tyaag” episode by Ms. Sonia Gandhi, when she “let go” the Prime Ministership of India in favour of Shri Manmohan Singh (see the story here). According to Shri Swamy, she was not lawfully eligible for the post. Does it follow that the same citizenship law bars to Shri Rahul Gandhi both from being appointed as, and from taking the oath of the post of, the Prime Minister of India? If that is so, only a hand-picked subservient can go against or twist the law to make Shri Rahul Prime Minister. Shri Pranab Mukherjee is seen by some to be such a person who may be agreeable to such an idea. 2014 is round the corner. Such a scenario would make any one smile. Whether Shri Pranab Mukherjee stands for India, or for vested interests, only time will tell. Assuming that he gets elected.
Prima facie the President of India is covered by amnesty for all his actions during his tenure. Luckily, treason is not one of them.
