Almost 52 Years after his grandfather wrote "Discovery of India", India's crown price has embarked on a yatra which his backroom managers has christened "Discover India’ yatra. Who can blame him for this effort, afterall the poor guy has spend most of his time slogging for livelihood in foreign countries. The communal fascist Opposition should appreciate that he is atleast making an effort to overcome his naiveness about the country.
According to media reports, Rahul Baba wants to reach out to the "last man in the society" to familiarize himself with the “emerging issues” of the country and “the problems faced by crores of people” thru this yatra. He would be taking a chopper to the location perhaps to understand the problems being faced by common people while traveling on a chopper.
I am not sure whether his Spanish girl friend Veronique is accompanying him or not. It would have been good idea to give her the photo opportunity and the opportunity to learn about "aam Admi" afterall she is the next potential Prime Minister Candidate.
Rahul will commence his tour from Orrisa where he would be addressing a "Jungle Bachao" rally. Mr. Gandhi would take time and mingle with tribal people and youth, the Congress leaders are confident that his visit would make a big impact on the political scenario in the State. The congress leaders in Orissa should curb their enthusiasm as his "special attention" in Uttar Pradesh or Gujarat failed to make any difference in these states. In Uttar Pradesh, Congress came last in the Seat tally. We all know the situation in Gujarat. With election results in UttarPradesh and Gujarat, he ended up " the last man standing"
