Erstwhile revolutionary singer and former Maoist ideologue Gaddar might have declared that he was not going to join any party, but his activities clearly indicate that he has virtually turned a Congressman.
It was evident from his statement on Friday asking the people to make the public meetings of Congress party president Rahul Gandhi at Bhainsa in Adilabad, Kamareddy and Hyderabad a big success. He openly extended welcome to the Congress president to Telangana to bring down the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government headed by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
In his statement, Gaddar said Rahul Gandhi had lauched another national movement to unite all sections of people in the country. “Let us protect our constitution by supporting Rahul Gandhi. Long live secular India,” he said.
Though Gaddar claimed that he had rejected the offer of Rahul Gandhi to join the Congress party, the way he and his family had long interaction with Rahul and Sonia in New Delhi showed that he had more or less joined the Congress. His son Suryam is already a Congress leader and is likely to contest from Bellampalli in the ensuing assembly elections.
So, there is no surprise that Gaddar might also wear Khaddar sooner or later. He reportedly asked the Congress bosses to see that he would be the unanimous choice of the Maha Kootami from Gajwel assembly constituency.
However, the Congress president told him that the existing political equations do not help Gaddar in Gajwel. He reportedly promised to field Gaddar in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections from Medak parliamentary constituency.
