ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Vice-Presidential Poll: Gopalkrishna Gandhi is Opposition candidate”

  1. Raju says:

    It almost looks like an attempt to get back the totally damaged image of the Gandhi ! The original Gandhi was an epitom of honest and simplicity! The counterfeit Gandhis ruined his image beyond recognition . Of late Gandhi had become synonymous to third class(Gandhi pass) to totally corrupt, power hungry scoundrels. It is really refreshing that they found at least one single Gandhi in political life 6who is not corrupt! Why did not they field him as the PM candidate! It would have worked much better instead of hoisting the King of morons as PM candidate, who can’t hold a thought!
