Sonia confident of UPA's return to power again, rules out early polls

New Delhi, Aug 24 (Agencies) : Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday expressed confidence that the United Progressive Alliance would win the 2014 elections, and virtually ruled out early Lok Sabha polls.

Talking informally to media people after the inauguration of National Media Centre in New Delhi, Gandhi also expressed hope that the food security bill will be passed in the monsoon session of parliament.

Asked if UPA-III (United Progressive Alliance-III) will be a reality, she said: "Certainly. 100 per cent......obviously so many rights we have given. It is our right to information, right to education and now right to food is our USP", she said when asked about the possibility of UPA coming back to power and what was the USP on which the elections will be fought.

To a question about the possibility of early general elections, she said: "Our aim is to go till the end (of the government's tenure)."

Asked about the food security bill which is pending despite government efforts for its passage, Gandhi said: "We are hopeful it will be passed."

The United Progressive Alliance government, now in its second term, has been facing intense criticism from the opposition on issues related price rise, the falling value of the rupee and corruption.

The term of the UPA-II government will end in May next year.

Gandhi also expressed concern and anguish over the gruesome gang-rape of the 22-year-old photojournalist in Mumbai two days ago.

"It is a heinous crime...It should not have happened," Gandhi said, while interacting with reporters.

I have received a comm from some friends from US asking for participation(volunteering) in mission 2014 to help Modi become PM. Its all propaganda by NRIs who care less for the country but bent upon to project a man who is not fit for the betterment of country. Through this site I want to request supporters of Cong to rise to the need to defeat communal forces as PM-MMS said few days back. People have started judging the mood by agree or disagree on comments on TOI/NDTV articles about UPA or BJP/Modi. We do not support corruption, but corruption was always there whether it is NDA or UPA, only difference is the people have Right To Info. So without being misguided we should support cong for peaceful India and reject the divisive forces. No godse please.......check the site - to have idea about lies of the guy.

Yes, we surely need Congress but minus MMS & Sonia.
People have blind trust on MMS because he is honest, not currupt and clean. I admit this too, but saints can not manage politics of modern age. We need action simultaneously.

My observation: Modi made BJP's hopes very weak, and Mouna Mohana's dumbness made Congress's
life miserable. Sonia, you better get settled in Italy, you have enough money (Of your own!!) to spend anywhere in the world rest of your life, but let us live in peace.

Mr.Dsouza,Just because media says UPA corrupt it does not mean it is corrupt.Let wait for court verdict.You claim you educated and stop lecturing other .I am a educated person i know how congrss ruled the country and lead us and it is the only party who gave full term governace always.Even Mr. Vajapayee who people says most popular other than congress fell two time for 13 days And 13 month and in his 5 year full term surrendered to terrorist kept Indias GDP lowest ever .Study yourself and belive in fact and fact can not be changed.Jai Hindh

Food security to citizens doesn't cost to tax payers. Instead of the grain rotting in governmental godowns the congress is gracefully distributing to the public.

Food Security bill is acceptable.

So according to Sonia Madam, 3 rights given are enough for ing UPA for another term...

I do not wish UPA to win 2014 considering corruption,mismanagement and mis-governance.

But i will not be surprised to see Manmohan singh again( or some other robot) as congress knows the art of winning very well than other parties.
They have been doing for many years this...projecting secularism, paid media and vote bank politics.

Pity that educated people will not understand this.

RTI/RTE and now food security will change the face of this country. Imagine a program which is taking care of food for 600 million !!!does not matter what people talk and how muhc it is costing all tax payers should think they are doing some charity work for the poor and feed their fellow countrymen. All parties are scared and worried that once this is implemented UPA III is guaranteed. NDA did a great job for five years 2000 -2004 and thats is the reason they lost the elections and parliament was attacked and MR advani the iron man released the terroists in the kandhamal plane hijack!!! we all know how this great man saved 15000 gujjus in one day i am sure he can make us rich overnite !!!or atleast feel we are rich

It is obvious that majority of readers of Daijiworld are Congress supporters. Unfortunately, this means most prefer high-levels of corruption and complete disregard for rule of law - Robert Vadra's shameless loot of India supported by his mother-in-law should made any real Indian cringe. I dont know if NaMo is the answer, but surely this Govt lead by Mute MMS (worst PM) is not the answer. All real patriotic Indians will vote out this Congress party.

Sorry friend. People here support the Congress not because they support Corruption. We detest corruption but the BJP/Sangh Parivar is not a better replacement/option with its hidden communal agenda and their own understanding of Hindutva which includes Babri masjid demolition, moral policing etc.. Further, the BJP are not spotlessly clean when it comes to corruption. When they come to power they will not be much different. Anyway examples of Yeddy, Reddys, Gadkari are there to speak of BJP corruption. God knows how many more still are undiscovered.

People wish to live in peace first without the fear of being discriminated, harassed and/or attacked because of their religion. I dont think you are able to understand this. Corruption, we believe is the lesser of the two evils as we have seen and experienced the venom of Communalism in Society.

In Gujarat where there is no lokayukta, and carrying one man rule how will you find out the corruption?! Every human is a corrupt. If you point out only to politicians is of no use. It is the citizens should abide the moral character and avoid corruption giving and taking.

Mr. Lobo,
It was Congress Supremo Sonia Gandhi's Italian links in picture in Chopper scam! Dont blame allies for curruption. Robert Vadra is also into land scams. all are aware of coalgate.
You want to give absolute majority to Congress so they can loot the country freely????

Lobo, Mangalore/Mumbai
Sunday, August 25, 2013

A few years back when Congress was ruling the country with absolute majority one could rarely hear about scams/corruption. Now due to political compulsions the Congress had to align with regional parties like Trinamul Congress, DMK, JDU and host others which were only interested in making money. In order to have stable and clean government at the center, I appeal all like minded people vote for Congress in the 2014 General
election. Jai Hind

I am totally with Lobo, We should all try and vote for one national party in our all upcoming elections and should bring that in power with clear majority.It is the political tie up which has ruined our nation. These small "bukhe nango" ki parties are much more involved in scams as compared to the national parties.

Declan, Mumbai
Monday, August 26, 2013


Nice try, however, I dont believe you are 'totally' with Lobo from your comments. You seem to be only 'partly' with Lobo when it comes to favouring a single 'national' level party over a coalition with smaller parties. However, unlike Lobo you have not specifically said that you support the Congress. Therefore, it seems you could be a BJP supporter so how can you say you are 'totally' with Lobo ?

No problem who you support but its nice to not have any confusion on that. You may clarify if you wish to. Good day to you !

Yes Lobo, you are correct. There was no corruption till Lal Bahadur Shastri was PM.
The unabashed naked corruption started only after Syndicate - Indicate split of Cong. All old generation Honest people went with Syndicate and pathetically corrupt remained with Indicate which is now the nerve center of UPA.

UPA is strong enough ! Yes agree !! a single command !!! but at first it is like gold good work less corruption . UPA-11 is like towards silver more corruption and the economy is in doldrums with conflict policies and less shinning and with high inflation!!. UPA-111 is bit sure turning towards to iron no shine at all maybe more and more corruptions!!!.Let us wait for 2014 election !!!. Change of the guard always better in the interest to locally and internationally!!.

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Despite monumental scams.....she dreams of winning next polls ?.....Voting Machines may be behind her stupendous confidence.
Need to check the voting machines otherwise she cannot be that confident.

Soniaji, undoubtedly you are the back bone of India. However, your team, including your son-in-law is a curse to Congress and to India. If at all BJP was secular, Congress would have gone to drain. Luckily, BJP has chosen a wrong PM candidate which is certainly helpful for Congress to win. BJP, under the senseless advise of RSS choosing Feku as a tall leader has dug its own grave & paved the way towards success for Congress. I was a strong supporter of Congress, but, lately, due to corruption and scams I am very much disappointed. However, have no choice but to opt for corruption against communalism. Wish BJP was secular & instead of mass murderer, any other leader was PM candidate. Jai Hind.

What wrong if UPAIII will be in power? I think the way currently opposition is attacking , no government or country will be in state of sound mind. Give UPA chance and hope it will change the destiny of India and If BJP comes CASTE and TEMPLE issues will make INDIA sick.

For Sonia, there is no option she has to get UPA into power again. If any other party comes to power, especially BJP, they will pull out all the ghosts from her corruption bag! She tasted corruption money with her Italian counterparts on BOFORS, now again Italian based FINMECHANICA! Son in law's illegal land grabbing on another side, Sonia faces corruption charges pointing directly at her. UPA is not acting on bringing back black money from Switzerland only because Sonia will be main loser! However we haven't heard anything about Rahul Gandhi. probably he must be sole shoulder to carry on the good things Mrs. Indira Gandhi had started.
Sonia Madam, Chunav ke pehle India chodke Bhago! right now!! or else you might have to see the jails!!

The Congress is experienced Political player. All they want to prove thier achievement is by different kind of acts like information or food. Once it pass in the parliament by the end of this year, they will bring the Rupee value around 55 against dollar in Feb and reduce the oil prices and other necessary comodity prices too and prepare themselves for the general elections. Now the depreciation of Rupee is a political game. Just wait and watch. BJP know about this and making different ways to get voters attractions but at the end of the day Congress will be the winner.

Yes, of course congi should come to power and we are eagerly waiting to see Rupees touching 100 per dollar!!!

INC has 206 in LS. It might not corss 100 this time. Looks like Karnataka is the state which might help INC a bit by giving 15-16 seats and this would be INC'c highest seats ever from any state. BJP would definitely increase its strenght and may reach around 175 or so. Rest all goes to regional parties and 2014 would be disaster for India.

Congress will enter into alliance only with sickular parties like MIM,Muslim league,Christian dominated Kerala Congress,and Mani Congress,Sickular JDU/Nitish kumar,Lalu will fall at the feet of Sonia for his safety(lest CBI raid)HDK/Deve Gowda will openly oppose but meet Sonia in the evening with 2/3 MPs,New state leadesr of Telangana(Thel gaalna party).....baaki sub no alliance.....

There is still strength in the Congress party to win the election provided all the partymen join togather and with one voice of winning they face the forthcoming election.Good example is recent by-elections of two parlimentary constituvencies in Karnatak where both seats are won with thumbing lead snatching these tradational seats of JDS.No doubt with regard to completion of second term but they have offer open to gain back third term provided they contest election with full unity.Hope for the best.All the best.

yeah Congress won 2 loksabha seats in Karnataka.
Cong storms JD(S) land, wins two LS seats. Congratulations Sonia madam for winning. Yeah UPA3 is reality in 2014. where is Modi and his brigade?? confused !!! 'coz they even didn't dare to keep their own BJP candidate in this elections..

Vincent Praveen Castelino, Pernal / Mumbai

Congress president Mrs. Sonia Gandhi's and her entire team members will to have work hard and to take a united stand to win the coming general elections because the opposition parties particularly the BJP and "Modi Mantra" can go(stoop down)to any extent to misguide the voters on various issues on different "Stories" created by them and not the "Real" issues which are not concerned for the country in totality.

I admire Sonia s confidence of winning again so that she can enhance her swiss bank balance and improve networth of her family members in general and her son in law in particular. I always wonder why Mahatma Gandhi fought so hard for our independence to be ruled again by an outsider with the help of stooges.

I don't agree with this. No party will win majority. That's so very clear.

The one and only person whom I would suggest & capable for the PM post in Congress is none other than Mr.S.M.Krishna

The person behind the success of Bangalore and Software Industry, held prominent positions like Governor of Maharashtra, Minister of External Affairs, Minister of State for Industry & Finance, Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and Speaker of Karnataka.

A very capable person in terms of experience and development...a go getter with positive attitude and a splendid personality.

We need a South Indian for the PM post...

Be a strong opposition next time around...
