The dirty politics of a century-old party- Not again

When almost every opinion poll has predicted that the Congress would not even cross the 100 mark in the polls of 2014, the more than a century-old party is expected to maintain utmost sportsman spirit. However, considering itself as the sole body which can rule the nation, the party is likely to play another dirty game. Surely, the habit of being in power is tough to part with. The words of senior leaders of Congress have clarified that the party can go to any probable extent to stop Narendra Modi from being the administrator of the nation. Extending support to the so-called secular third front is clearly the agenda of the party, howsoever destructive this may be. Can we welcome such an absurd equation, yet again?

And the regional political parties, along with the Left front have been dreaming to witness a day when any one of their leaders can hold the office of Prime Minister. What national agenda does Samajwadi Party has, or for that matter the Left front has? Restricted to their respective states of operations, these groups have ambiguously projected their top leaders as the prime ministerial candidates. Ranging from Mayawati to Mulayam Singh and Mamta Banerjee to Jayalalitha, everyone can see hope on the basis that Congress would not be acceptable again and the BJP would fall short of numbers due to unfavorable attitude of particular communities.

The Congress is at the verge of its most appalling failure, which would even outshine the defeat in 1977 polls when Jayaprakash Narayan-influenced Janta Party restricted Congress to 153 seats. Vital to note, the Congress then was able to perform only in the south, which today looks to be floating in Modi’s wave of development, along with north, east and west regions. The Congress, rather than locating the causes of such a cataclysm of the party and working on reinventing the organizational as well as the ethical structure, is ready to play the most unwanted game in the democracy. Alleging that the party would extend support to an anti-communal front, the key motive is to prevent BJP from governing the nation, and then pulling off the support.

Our crafty political groups can come up with any mathematical formula to give the resultant figure above 272. Surely, the Congress has the requisite know-how to perform such forbidden acts, time and again. Extending support to the H. D. Deve Gowda-led front and a subsequent pull off which resulted in the downfall of the government was a part of this episode. Other instances include the betrayal of the party to Charan Singh; extension of support to the 8th PM of India, Chandra Shekhar and subsequent pull off on the grounds that his government was spying on Rajiv Gandhi; and the rise and fall of Inder Kumar Gujral. Political volatility was created at every instance which can be regarded as a curse for the democracy.

Yet again, the Congress is heading towards the same path. And the hunger of becoming the topmost decision-maker of the nation runs within the leader of every political group. Shall the general public allow such dirty coalition knowing the urgency of reforms? Shouldn’t the Congress, despite of coming up with such unsolicited propositions, conduct a self-assessment programme so as to undertake corrective measures within the party? The ultimate evaluator is the public. Tough and clear message has to be delivered to our so-called secular advocates so as to assure that they come up with real and moral goals at the subsequent occasion. The only way out to curb the Congress from creating a political chaos is ‘the awakening of voters’.
