    NEW DELHI:
    HIGHLIGHTS
    1. Rahul Gandhi says he's going to Italy to meet grandmother
    2. His mother is leading opposition's strategy for Presidential election
    3. He visits India between breaks, says BJP


    Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi announced today on Twitter that he is headed to Italy to visit his grandmother, leaving some puzzled by the timing of his journey, though the ruling BJP, which holds that Mr Gandhi lacks commitment to politics, said it's unsurprised.

    "Rahul Gandhi visits India in between his foreign vacations," said BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao.

    The Congress said that the controversy is unnecessary. "Rahul is going to Italy to visit his 93-year-old grandmother, to see how she's been. We strongly criticise those who are trying to politicise this," said spokesperson RS Surjewala. Politically, this is not a quiet season.


    The deaths of five Madhya Pradesh farmers - shot by the police during a protest for debt relief and better prices for their produce - has turned into a gigantic political controversy. Mr Gandhi, who will turn 47 while on his trip on July 19, was arrested briefly when he tried to visit the families of the killed farmers in the region of Mandsaur.

    Opposition parties like his have said the tragedy exposes the disinterest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party, the BJP, in providing any relief to farmers reeling from rural distress.

    Mr Gandhi is also exiting the country as his mother, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, leads efforts to rally together the opposition over the election of the President of India, scheduled for next month. Tomorrow, opposition leaders will meet in Delhi to discuss their strategy. Though the opposition has said it could field a united candidate against the government's choice, leaders have indicated that they will wait till the government shares the name of its nominee.

    BJP chief Amit Shah has created a committee of three senior ministers to talk to the party's allies - and the opposition - about a suitable replacement for President Pranab Mukherjee, whose term expires on July 24. The government, with the support of regional parties like the TRS from Telangana has enough votes to win an election if it is unable to agree with the opposition on the new occupant of Rashtrapati Bhavan.

    Though the opposition is aware that it's outnumbered, it believes that the election will allow it an opportunity to measure how well it can work together. Opposition heavyweights like Nitish Kumar have agreed that it would require a formidable grouping of parties to block PM Modi from a second term given his current popularity.

    The election for President, if needed, will be held on July 17; counting will be held three days later on the 20.

    a few points:
    1) see how NDTV neatly superimposes the farmer strike issue and Modi's reaction to it in a story related to Rahul Gandhi and his visit to Italy?
    2) How come his grand mother does not want to visit India ever? we have not seen him with his family. whats there to hide?
    3) by visiting Italy and talking about it openly, Rahul has exposed his non-Indian roots yet again - or at the least - a strong Italian connection.
    4) How many breaks does this guy take? if I take more than 2 weeks vacation I have a sword hanging on my neck.


    BTW - for someone like RG who never disclosed where he goes abroad, do you guys really think he is being truthful about his travel itinerary this time?

    He is actually a undercover agent of Special Service branch of VHP:scare: and also a star campaigner for BJP.

    As there are no elections now, him going to Italy or Burundi , doesn't matter.

    He works really hard to ensure that BJP wins,this holiday is well deserved.

    As much as I despise this family for what it has done to India, his visit to Italy to meet his grandmother is not a public concern, as long as it is really a personal visit and he is not meeting with "breaking India" agents on the side.

    He may be a budhu but his party and network are full of cunning devious minds.

    Italy to Switzerland no need for immigration. (How convenient ! )

    My hunch is grandmother visit is a facade. He basically needs time off and is criticized often for his overseas visit, therefore this is a good excuse. He is a foreigner living in India. Can you imagine, last many years he was always overseas on his birthday. His whole family is in India, so why he has to go out on Birthday. I think the reason could be that he does not enjoy his vacations in India partly becuase of security issues. The other thing is he really does not gel with Indian culture, all his friends are foreigner, all the leaked pictures had them. He is just doing this because its politically correct.

    question is - is it truly a family visit? how come we NEVER heard of this before? Modi visiting/not visiting his family is shown on front pages.

    this is exactly what I think too.. also - they have no check permit at our airport as Rahul Gandhi comes under SPG Protectees list (https://factly.in/vips-exempted-from-security-check-at-airports/)

    you spend your birthdays and such important days with your "Real" family. dont you?

    I'm curious, what is India's constitutional stance on people of Indian origin (not born or raised) returning and seeking political office? What are the barriers and limits?

    His party is one the richest entity in the world, has a lot of party workers, and and even with low support, could create a lot of trouble using dormant workers and money power. On top of it, there are entities that are willing to finance congress for sake of harming India. Both AAP and Congress were funded by same hawala firm.

    His party ,which is his personal property, could not be written off so easily; and even though he is an imbecile, he has coterie of intelligent people around him who specialize in creating riots.

    What is the problem for the BJP ??

    1. Rahul Gandhi is turning 47 and he is the Youth leader of Congress.

    2. After been visit and arrest in M.P, he got heat strokes, which is not good for a undeclared Prince (Rajkumar) of India. And Indian environment is very hostile and unfavorable for the person like him, so he have full right to shift to the favorable environment.

    3. He is a Political Tourist Leader.

    4. He need some Medicine and Itallian Yoga, which is good for India.
