M.v. Rangaraajan's Comments
"This is not party's view but his personal. Then how can he say that "we could consider". He should have first discussed with party before offering this kind of support. Once we are in an organization, that too in a decision making position, there cannot be personal view and organization view."
"It is the internal matter of Congress as to who should be their PM Candidate but if it is Rahul Gandhi, Modi with his experience and performance will lead his party to victory. Moreover he is surrounded and supported by the stalwarts of his party who are no less in stature to his. Indeed Modi can be referred as First among equals but designated to lead the party in the election-war of 2014 like Churchill was voted to power during 2nd world war as war-prime minister."
"The old saying comes to mind: All roads lead to Rome."
"In this context, a person of Anna Hazare's stature should organize a "Citizens Force" (totally apolitical) to fight injustice meted out to honest people. Leaving everything in the hands of Executive leads to indifference and inaction."
"A powerful organization consisting of common people, who do not have any political affiliation, is needed. I thought such an organization had emerged in 2011 at Jantar Mantar, where i spent my time in all the days and also later on at Ramlila grounds. To my dismay Arvind Kejriwal had started a political party which if and when it comes to power will be forced to compromise on certain values. I welcome Anna's "Jantantra Morcha"."
