Sonia makes rare intervention in debate on cash-for-vote scam

"They used to say the same about your government," Gandhi told Yashwant Sinha (BJP) when he said that apart from the government and its longevity, the Indo-US nuclear deal was at stake at the time of the 2008 trust vote.

The one-line intervention by Gandhi, who is also UPA Chairperson, came at a time when Sinha was going all out to attack the government over the WikiLeaks expose. Gandhi's intervention was loudly cheered by the Treasury benches with Congressmen thumping their desks.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who is also leader of the Lok Sabha, were present. Sinha, however, said the response from Gandhi proved that he was able to drive home his point.
