NCP, Congress rift may be temporary

NCP, Congress rift may be temporary”

The BJP thought that by ensuring my defeat they will finish off the Congress in Gujarat and then this Gujarat Model would be applied elsewhere. The BJP and its propaganda machine and trolls have been doing damning spoofs of him for quite a while now, so much so that even before Rahul Gandhi can utter a word the unwary listener starts giggling. This is being done to damage the credentials of the party ahead of the Gujarat elections. Aall eyes are on how Congress moves forward and if the party can find a middle ground to marry the aspirations of a young leadership with the expectations of the old.

Such is its delusion of grandeur that the BJP would like to consign the Congress to the archives with the likes of Amit Shah even rubbishing it recently as a fragment of the freedom struggle that should have been mothballed after Independence. Room number 224 in Ahmedabad became my temporary home (he names a hotel where he stayed put).

Speaking to our reporter, one of the MLAs who were stuck in the jam explained the situation, "We knew we'd be stuck here". But this was all because the BJP stooped down to horse-trading and negative politics.

Why so, why were you the target?

The Gujarat outcome is definitely not an indicator of which way the Assembly polls would swing later this year.

In 1977, when you won your first Lok Sabha election, Mrs Indira Gandhi and the Congress was facing a bad time. For the sake of democracy alone, the Congress needs to reinvent itself but Congressmen and women should have the gumption to tell it like it is - that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are no longer appealing to the public. Is it a co-incidence? The Congress was facing hard times but Gujarat gave the party 10 MPs even then. Patel is a seasoned player, but the mantle has to pass on to someone who is both younger and could serve the party well over a considerable period of time. In a classic case of electoral overreach and political overkill, the BJP spokespersons came up with shifting and disingenuous explanations to counter the Congress objections.

Q:Do you think RS election was more about your survival than the Congress winning?

"We have received a request of shifting our premises to Bengaluru and we are seriously considering it so that we can relax in the resort during the 364 days of the year when we are not working", said the Chief Election Officer, talking about the one day of election when they operate during the year.

Absolutely not. The BJP employed every possible trick from their Dirty Department Division to defeat me and still failed.
