Comment on the political situation.
Sonia's leadership is dangerous for the country. For 15 years this woman did not take Indian citizenship. She went to Tiru-pati just to show that she has become a Hindu. Prime minister banne se pahele hi gundagardi (All these antics before becoming prime minister.) And now she is hell-bent upon becoming the prime minister.
Is there a pattern to Sonia's rise?
Foreign powers are responsible for bringing Sonia close to prime ministership. Not letting Indira Gandhi wear a bullet-proof jacket on the day of the assassination, not accompanying Rajiv to the South for the election campaign—these show there is a conspiracy. Her role has been dubious; the government should set up an inquiry.
How do you see Vajpayee as a PM?
He has been a successful PM. Despite the contradictions, managing 98 parties and a person like Jayalalitha is commendable.
You'd accused him of putting Hindutva on the backburner?
There were no hindrances...
