The President’s Intriguing Priorities!
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
After the media pointed out that the credit for the rollback of the Ordinance on convicted MPs went to President Pranab Mukherjee and not to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi who exploited the President’s known reluctance to sign it, Mr. LK Advani praised the President for his decision. However, the President reacted to this praise most intriguingly.
Why, then, his intriguing, defensive rejoinder?
Eyebrows were further raised after the President’s son, Mr. Abhijeet Mukherjee, called on the chief victim of the scrapped Ordinance, Mr. Lalu Prasad Yadav, who was in jail. The popular conclusion derived from this visit was that Mr. Mukherjee had gone there to convince Mr. Yadav that the decision not to sign the Ordinance reflected no personal motive of the President but was dictated by the Constitution. This was unnecessary. Mr. Yadav one is sure is sufficiently knowledgeable to have been aware of that. If such speculation has any basis it is certainly odd that the President should be so concerned about Mr. Yadav’s feelings. The President after all is above party politics.
Surprisingly, even the President is silent.
