Priyanka Pulls out a Ace from here sleeves

r Last month, Nalini Sriharan (one of the conspirators in her father Rajiv Gandhi's assassination) had an unexpected visitor, Priyanka Vadra. According to Priyanka, 

"It is true that I met Nalini Sriharan in Vellore central jail on March 19, 2008. It was my way of coming to peace with the violence and loss that I have experienced,"

She also added

"I do not believe in anger, hatred and violence and I refuse to allow these things to overpower my life,"

As expected the private channels in india went into a frenzy on the magnanimous Gesture from Priyanka giving her much needed airtime

Was it just coincidence that around the same time, out of Blue Arjun Singh and assorted sycophants reopened the discussion on "who should be the next PM?".

Was it just a coincidence an Election is Horizon?

May be we are reading too much into it, It may be just another case of "Inner Voice Speaking".
