Big leap for Yadav

FROM BEING nowhere in the frame weeks before the curtains went up on the elections, it has sure been a vertical jump for city Congressman and now, Secunderabad MP, Anjan Kumar Yadav.

As if pulling down a confident Bandaru Dattatreya from the Secunderabad Parliamentary seat, in the process emerging as one of the most unlikely giant-killers his own party men foresaw, was not enough, Yadav again gave the jolt to many Doordarshan and NDTV viewers when he appeared live on the mini-screen, appealing Congress president Sonia Gandhi to reconsider her decision of opting out.

It was not just the appearance of Yadav that amazed many. The timing too was a factor.

He was among the first 10 who addressed the Congress Parliamentary Party meeting at Delhi on Tuesday, shortly after bigwigs like Mani Shankar Aiyyar, A.R. Antulay, Renuka Chowdhary and others.

A really big jump for a first-time Parliamentarian into whose hands a B-form had been thrust minutes before the nomination deadline, and whose supporters had been on a fast in front of Gandhi Bhavan, that too demanding not a Parliament ticket, but a `normal' Assembly ticket!
