New Delhi: Television visuals of the Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj dancing vigorously at the Rajghat — the last resting place of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation — where BJP leaders had gathered to condemn the police action on Baba Ramdev and his supporters caught people by surprise.

Indeed, Congress media chairperson Janardan Dwivedi took potshots at the party for staging an agitation at Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial, especially “as they represented an ideology that was responsible for his assassination.
“There are some people sitting on a fast at the Rajghat who follow an ideology because of which Rajghat was constructed before its time,” Mr. Dwivedi said, adding, “Gandhiji wanted to live 125 years, Rajghat had to be constructed much earlier.
He asked what the BJP was celebrating at the Rajghat as their leaders were seen dancing. “Why is the Leader of the Opposition dancing with her companions there? Where is the seriousness, why are they celebrating?”
