Rahul Gandhi speaks against the Government's ordiance on convicted lawmakers

Things are really not right for the Congress led UPA Government at Delhi.

For long, the decisions taken by the Indian Government have been disapproved. Allies, Opposition, common public and sometimes even party colleagues. In fact, the government had gained reputation as the roll-back government that has had to go back on many of its decisions in the recent past.

Taking this reputation one notch up, the Congress led ruling coalition has approved an ordinance that even the Congress party's most powerful leader Rahul Gandhi has criticized.

The government has approved and forwarded, to the President of India, an ordinance on convicted politicians. This ordinance received widespread criticism both from within the and outside the Congress. Even a minister in the government - Milind Deora - has publicly spoken against it.

The latest addition to this brigade was Rahul Gandhi, when he spoke in the media about his opinion which was totally against the ordinance.

It seems that the Congress party has mastered the art of acting against public sentiment and attracting receiving criticism at almost every step.

Supreme Court's Landmark Decision - voters get the RIGHT TO REJECT

Yes finally it is here... - The Right to Reject

Even as the Union Cabinet has prepared an ordinance against Supreme Court's decision to immediately disqualify convicted politician.

The bench of Chief Justice P Sathasivam, Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai and Justice Ranjan Gogoi has delivered what can be easily classified as the most revolutionary, path-breaking decision.

The honourable justices have directed the election commission to implement a NOTA (none-of-the-above) button in all EVMs and Ballot Papers in a phased manner and directed the center to provide support.

I personally welcome the decision and agree that this will force the political parties to nominate popular candidates.
