I think the Congress managers have played a master stroke.

Point No. 1 - They have been able to table the Bill in Parliament, as promised in this session. They have also gone ahead and extended the session by 3 days - ostensibly to show their intention is serious.

Point No. 2 - They have left it to the Parliament to pass the Bill. They have not very forcibly argued for passing the Bill. They know very well that they will certainly face a divided house and a house which regards its priviliges as sacrosanct. The volte-face on the minority reservation issue is also partly to aid this divide in the house.

Now they can go around and tell the nation that, if the parliament is not able to pass the bill in this session, they did everything in their power to pass the bill but cooperation from other parties are not forthcoming. This will also give them a chance to use force to rein in the civil activists.

I see the vintage congress hand in this.

They are not afraid of Anna. Because Sonia, being Italian, is still keeping some civilization in the Government. They are just giving Anna some due respect. He can be bought.
