What Rahul Gandhi's rebel avatar on criminal ordinance mean to India & a political spectrum ruled by party whip!

After many days of silence and sober appearances Rahul Gandhi has
taken a stand on something as grave and important as this ordinance
which aimed to nullify Supreme Court order barring convicted MPs from
parliament. In his strong statement, Gandhi scion has called the ordinance
