Congress national president Rahul Gandhi’s sister, Priyanka Gandhi, recently announced her entry into formal politics. The 47-year-old politician officially began her political career, as the General Secretary of Uttar Pradesh East after taking a dip in the Ganga at the Kumbh Mela. The Congress will be hoping that Priyanka Gandhi’s official entry into politics will give the party a much-needed edge in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the Lok Sabha elections later this year. Not aloof to politics, this will be the first time she will be actively taking part as a politician.
And as expected, her entry in politics prompted the opposition (lead by BJP) to attack the Congress. At a public meeting in Himachal Pradesh, BJP chief Amit Shah introduced a new version of OROP or One Rank One Pension.
Addressing party workers in Una, the BJP president said:
“When the BJP government was formed, within a year Modi ji delivered on his promise of One Rank One Pension. Modi ji gave OROP to our jawans, Congress gave ‘Only Rahul Only Priyanka’.”
Soon after Amit Shah’s remarks, former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah quickly grabbed the opportunity to coin a new acronym to target the BJP. Abdullah said country was suffering from too much “ODOMOS- overdose of only Modi only Shah”.
Here is the tweet by Abdullah:
While the rest of the country suffers from too much ODOMOS – overdose (of) only Modi only Shah. https://t.co/PD1GoJbcIz

ODOMOS has served the country for years and protected people from biscuits blood sucking, infection and disease spreading germs. A little bit of a Self goal sir 🤓 since Indians love and trust Odomos to help protect them against disease, no?

If Kashmiri Pandits had #ODOMOS during your abbu’s rule, then they would have been living in their own home today.

Amit Shah had said that while BJP’s OROP is aimed to benefit Indian soldiers, Congress’s OROP is meant to strengthen one family only. According to many political analysts, Priyanka’s entry will serve the Congress, but it remains to be seen how far the move will play in the long run.
