Sonia tasked Rahul and three others with the responsibility of looking after the day-to-day affairs of the party. Other members of the group are defence minister A K Antony, Congress general secretary Dwivedi and Sonia's political secretary Ahmed Patel. Patel and Antony are among Sonia's most trusted confidants, while Dwivedi is the general secretary in charge of the organization- She seems to have professed SECULARISM by nominating A Hindu , A Christian and a MUSLIM -What do you say ?
It is in thoughts and ideologies.
BJP and RSS do not have it, and they don't wish to have it.
Congress tells the people to believe that they are secular.
But in the real world, the actions speak and not just the nominated people's display.
If Sonia Gandhi finds Mr. Patel as one of the most trustworthy, then it is not because of his religion. Otherwise somebody like Mr. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi (naming him just because of same religion) can replace him. right?
And if the people from same religion had been behaving the same way, then virtually there would have been no difference between Jayalalitha & Mamta banerjee, or between Lalu Prasad Yadav and Narendra Modi. Factually, they are different.
