Angry Sonia Gandhi at her combative best in Lok Sabha

NEW DELHI: An angry Congress President Sonia Gandhi was at her combative best after senior BJP leader L K Advani today dubbed as “illegitimate” the 2009 election, a remark which he later retracted.

It being the first day for Sushi Kumar Shinde as Leader of the Lok Sabha, Gandhi virtually took the reins in her hands and signaled party men to protest vociferously.

Gandhi was seen strongly objecting to the remark, apparently seeking its withdrawal, and her proactiveness energized party MPs as also those from DMK and Trinamool Congress to counter the BJP.

Her aggressive stance prompted Shinde, as also Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, to play on the front foot by assailing the BJP leader over his comments and asking him to make amends.

Gandhi, who is heading the UPA for the last eight years, was never seen in such a mood since Congress came to power via the coalition route in 2004.

Even after the House was adjourned for lunch, the UPA Chairperson was seen interacting with MPs and Ministers on the issue and making it clear that the Congress and the UPA would not take things lying down on the matter.

Earlier when the House was not in session, Gandhi had sent out a stern message to party MPs from Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh as she was heard telling them that they should not embarrass the party by waving placards and raising slogans in the House.

Her remarks came shortly after the MPs had waved placards demanding a separate Telangana which, along with disturbances on other issues, led to the adjournment of the House for the first time. -PTI
