Opinion polls predict the worstever defeat for the Congress in the coming election. The party swore by the aam aadmi for a decade, promising him succour through a rights-based approach . Alas, the aam aadmi rejects this categorically. In 2009, Sonia Gandhi created the powerful National Advisory Council with the top names in the NGO/activist circuit, claiming to be true champions of the aam admi. They prodded Sonia to enact the Right to Education Act, a sort of Right to Work (MNREGA), and a sort of Right to Food (the Food Security Act).
