Re: Menaka and Varun

Ramki,

I think its unfair to view the mother-son duo in light of the emergency. That was ages ago. We all know the fall out in the Gandhi family since then. Menaka Gandhi has also been a fairly active minister in the NDA government. And at least I have not heard her talk ill about the BJP. If you read the article, it talks about Mahajans logic for Varun to be a part of the BJP, which makes sense to me. Sometimes you pick people based on pure potential. Only time will tell whether that potential is realized or not. It happens all the time - in cricket, in business, in arts - everywhere. So why not in politics? I don't think its too ironic. Pragmatic, yes. Good move BJP.
