The Congressis had started murmuring against Baba and were leaving the alleged sinking boat. They even went to the extent suggesting that younger sister Priyanka be given the reigns of family party.
Today, India must be reeling under nostalgia. Some, because they lost Pran – the creator of their friends Billu, Pinki, Saabu and Chacha Choudhary – and some, because they saw a baby finally transforming into a grown up.
Now there is no prize for guessing the name.
Rahul Gandhi finally woke up from his slumber and realized that sitting in opposition was actually fun.
You get to raise hell, shout against the policies brought by your previous government, cry out loud ‘shame, shame’, and get early chhutti easily because of all that.
All these years of watching Chhota Bheem perhaps has infused some sort of courage in him and hence, Rahul Baba today daringly ran towards the well of the Parliament where his party’s allies were protesting against communal clashes in Uttar Pradesh.
It was a mighty sight. Just like we stood amazed by the motorist in the goose-bumping game of maut ka kuan, Congressis stood dazed by the sight of their darling Rahulji leading the charge.
Although he may have joined the chorus wishing for an early adjournment as he might have wanted to catch up the episodes of chhota bheem or collecting the rare publications of Chacha Chaudhary comics (now that the creator is no more), but who cares? He had a heroic exit in front of the media where he thundered like a rock-star rapper.
“We are not being allowed to speak in Parliament. We are asking for discussion. There is a mentality in the government that discussion is not acceptable. Everybody feels it, their party feels it, we feel it, everybody feels it,” he told a reporter.
Next statement to another journalist was a gem. “This is completely one sided partiality, you know”, he said criticizing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
Well, an editor would have liked to paraphrase. But, that would have been completely one sided bias towards our hero of the day, no?
Last time when he had delivered his AICC speech in rap, it had gone viral on YouTube. Today, Twitter is already singing and we don’t know what else is in store.
Just have a look at gushing people:

Rahul Gandhi may have wanted to shout “I don’t like this job. It sucks. Help Help”, but like Congress, BJP also didn’t let him speak that.

The whole thing is that even Congis want Baba to be kicked out & Baby to replace him. So Baba, the Black sheep, tried to look very very cool

When did you last see a Gandhi come to well of Parliament to save his/her job? Faced with dissent & irrelevance, Rahul Gandhi just did that

The Congressis had started murmuring against Baba and were leaving the alleged sinking boat. They even went to the extent of suggesting that younger sister Priyanka be given the reigns of family party after Sonia Gandhi retires.
It is another matter altogether that she is a bigger pappu than our prince. Even if Rahul Baba knew it, he needed to reaffirm his position in the party.
Whatever the case, the reason behind this drastic change in the attitude may well not be known.
