LET CONGRESS bringforth the following agenda for their survival in the next election:
a) Re-Writing the Constitution
b) Two-Party-System in India
c) Capital Punishment for Economic Offences too.
d) Shed-off the "Family" culture totally.

Personally, I feel that there is no hidden agenda by the Congress in disposing off these mercy pleas and yet they will gain political mileage from them. I think it has got more to do with Pranab Mukherjee's administrative abilities. Having been in active politics and handled various portfolios over a long period of time, he knows how to get things done. Afzal Guru's mercy petition was sent to the Delhi state administration when Dr Abdul Kalam was the President and Sheila Dikshit administration kept it in cold storage for so many years. But junior Congressmen dont have the guts to ignore Pranab Mukherjee's diktats and hence are being speedily disposed off. Pranab da had actually promised Bal Thackeray regarding Kasab and Afzal Guru, as these were the conditions laid down by Shiv Sena before they supported him. And now that Congress has seen that people are hailing these decisions of hanging the terrorists they are also pushing them to gain electoral mileage.

If someone is taking action after longtime, if ppl. start looking thro' yellow glass, then where is the end for it?
In any case, the verdicts on Indiraji and Rajiv's murder case it may take different turn since it was more out of personal vengeance than a treachery or terrorism. Moreover Sonia Gandhi has already pardoned Nalini in Rajiv Gandhi case, which would be extended to others and also it meets comfort zone of all political parties.

It need not be any hidden agenda. Political compulsions vis-a vis Rule of Law may be the call of conscience. Rajiv's killer and Beant Singh's killer are already in the queue and are awaiting their turn !
