6. Sonia's Illness Story: The Indian media has its own unwritten rules. The BJP must be gone after hammer and tongs whether they are in power or not. The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has to be treated with kid gloves.
So Congress President Sonia Gandhi got a mystery illness. She left the country. And not even one media house got wind of it! It was only after she was noticed in New York's Sloan-Kettering cancer hospital that the story came out.
The Congress spokespersons appealed for "privacy", but the post of president of a national party and chairman of the National Advisory Council isn't exactly private, is it?
