The decline and fall of the Congress
Vinod Chandrashekhar Dixit4/24/2019 12:52:49 AM
The decline and fall of the Congress is an arresting story
written time and again; but this time the party is at the nadir of its influence in national politics. The Congress's failure to project a suitable chief ministerial candidate in most of the elections must have harmed its prospects. The results in different states are a lesson for the Congress Party; it is on a steady decline in the country's political arena. The Congress is surely losing its power base across the country, and for good reason. The results are a lesson for the Congress Party; it is on a steady decline in the country's political arena. The Congress' revival pivots on its ability to address its crisis of credibility, encouraging State leaders, and functioning as a vigorous Opposition in Parliament. Rahul Gandhi the scion of congress is an empty vessel as he has shown no understanding of any issues and depends on his coattail hangers to provide sound bites to media. The discarded and shamed politicians are being re-inducted into the party and given important positions of authority. 60 years of the Nehru Gandhi dynasty has been a curse for Mother India, they have spread, nepotism, apathy and corruption across India. In the last 70 years those who have misused the laws and Constitution have mired the country in corruption. Modi has rightly said that the Congress always tried to promote the contribution of one family - a reference to the Gandhis - and neglected contributions of Veer Savarkar, even Bhagat Singh. It is not so as there are lot of people who gave their lives during independence struggle. On 'Congress-mukt Bharat' BJP is making a deeper dent. India is completely changed in last 15 years and the new generation want development and an aggressive bold minded leader like Modi. It is clear that Rahul Gandhi's hurdles in congress are his inexperience and his inaccessibility. His image is also an aloof one. He doesn't feel he has to have his own mouthpiece website and mobile application to make himself more accessible to people.Rahul Gandhi has different plans in mind but it does not work. Why ? He may seem extremely well intentioned but does that translate to an effectual administrator and visionary leader? History and statistics show that a 'dying party' can resurrect itself. The Congress party has been suffering from a leadership crisis, with Rahul Gandhi widely seen as a failure, indifferent and incompetent. Launching Priyanka is the party's last and desperate gamble. Priyanka is the most meritorious in her generation of Gandhis. Priyanka's arrival will no doubt bound to eclipse Rahul Gandhi, and possibly give the Congress party an image makeover. Priyanka Gandhi could then take the mantle of the party and lead the battle from the front in a long-drawn political fight. Widely seen as the Congress party's trump card, Priyanka Gandhi is the only option for congress to make her party's face in the Uttar Pradesh elections. In politics, ultimately public perception matters. Don't we think Sonia and Rahul should focus only on welfare of People in Congress Controlled States and stop focusing on Modi. ?
