பஞ்சாபிகளையும் தமிழரையும் இரும்பு கரம் கொண்டு அடக்க போய் ரெண்டு தலைமுறை தலைவர்கள் தூக்கப்பட்டார்கள். அது முப்பது வருடங்கள் கழித்து இப்ப இந்த நிலைமைக்கு வந்திருக்கு.  சில்லுக்கு ஆணி கழட்டினாலும் வண்டில் கொஞ்ச தூரம் ஓடி போய் தான் கவிழும்.

Congress Party in India Needs Leadership Change

 

 

The only country which claims itself to be a communist country namely  China is liberally adopting capitalist policies. Many people think  that communism as a political philosophy  has lost it’s sheen all over the world.

 

by N.S.Venkataraman 

It is now well realized by discerning people all over India , who are not involved in  politics ,that Indian democracy is suffering to some extent due to  lack of  principled  and credible  opposition party in the parliament. The absence of such AN opposition party in India today is a matter of concern.

Unfortunately, most of the opposition parties in India are essentially regional outfits  and most of them are  family  controlled  parties and have little presence in several states.

The Communist  and Marxist Communist parties  have virtually reduced themselves to the level of  regional outfits , as the leadership has not moved with the time and modified  traditional communist philosophy , which has outlived it’s purpose.  Due to advancement in science and technology and industrial practices and changed type of growth  and management practices  in the commercial and industrial sector, now  new type of conflicts have arisen in the country between the organized class and unorganized class. Even airline pilots , employees in software companies, and those employed in  commercial banks etc. are claiming trade union rights or organizing themselves in the trade union pattern.

In such circumstances, the communist parties in India remain confused , as  the organized class of people  who cannot be  considered by any stretch of imagination as an oppressed and suppressed class are members of trade unions under the control of the Communist parties.   Obviously, the communist parties have lost their sense of identity.

  The only country which claims itself to be a communist country namely  China is liberally adopting capitalist policies. Many people think  that communism as a political philosophy  has lost it’s sheen all over the world.

With both the communist parties out of reckoning as national parties, the only political party left now in the national scene is Indian  National Congress.

It does not call for much analysis and deliberation to conclude that  the Congress party is now facing a crisis of confidence and leadership. No one knows today as to what Congress party stands for,  as it has aligned  itself with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra  to form government, though Shiv Sena was branded as a non secular  and communal party by the Congress party earlier.  Has Shiv Sena become a secular party overnight  for the present leadership of the Congress party ?

The main allegation against the Congress party successfully made by BJP is that Congress is a dynastic party and essentially controlled by one family.  Many believe this to be true and a fact. By and large,  the general public is convinced that  Congress party leadership is concerned   largely  about the welfare of one family, which is an anachronistic approach  for a political party in a democratic country.

The dynastic character of Congress leadership has thrown Rahul Gandhi  into the  leadership position of Congress,  with no justification except that he hails from a particular family, which appears to “own” the Congress party.

  By his conduct and speeches, Rahul Gandhi has clearly created an impression that he has no particular attributes  to lead a national party.  His hugging the Prime Minister in the parliament when the parliament session was on and  then sarcastically  winking his  eyes, to be seen by several members of parliament,  has made many people suspect that he could be lacking maturity. Along with Rahul Gandhi’s image, the image of the Congress party has also taken a beating, as he was imposed  as President of Congress party.

It is in the national interest and in the interest of Indian democracy that the Congress party should be revived and should be enabled to function as  a principled  and forward looking party and get back it’s credentials.

  Obviously,  Congress  party cannot be revived without the effective leadership of the  party being vested in the hands of a senior  and tested person in the  party,  who is not from Gandhi family and who will not be a blind loyalist of the family.  He should have the courage of conviction to stand by the principle of the party, so that the party men will get a sense of purpose.

Looking into the present structure and  style of functioning of Congress party, even as Rahul   Gandhi says that he is not interested in the  position of the President of the party, he is practically functioning as de facto President of the party . Iit seems that the Gandhi family will never give up the control of the party, whatever may be the cost.  This situation calls for some sort of determined and dignified rebellion in the Congress party  ,that would inevitably make the Gandhi family realize that their period of lordship over the Congress party is now clearly over.

The obvious alternate leader who has the stature to become the president of the Congress party is Ghulam Nabi Azad.   He started as youth congress leader and has always conducted himself with decorum and dignity , whether he has been in the government or outside.  He has refrained from making obnoxious and abusive remarks against the members of the opposition parties unlike many other leaders in the Congress party today.   He has the image of dignity personified. He looks far taller than any other leader in the Congress party today,

When Prime Minister Modi praised him in Rajya Sabha , it was a well deserved praise. There is absolutely no reason to think that it is a “political praise”  and Ghulam Nabi Azad responded to the Prime Minister’s praise with dignity , which reflects on the quality and standard of this political leader.

India has seen in the past lofty scenes like Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajaji  praising each other on occasions , though they were in the opposition  camps   after independence.

The consensus feeling  in the country appears to be that Ghulam Nabi Azad can raise the  standards of politics in India to a more dignified  and lofty level  and raise the   respect  for the Congress party in the country today.

A matured political leader like Ghulam  Nabi Azad  can be critical of the ruling party even without using abusive language .By way of contrast, Rahul Gandhi called the Prime Minister a thief,  which  Ghulam  Nabi Azad would never do.

மற்றும் எமது திண்ணை அரசியல் கருத்தாளர்கள் சொல்ல தயங்கும் விடயமும் ஒரு பிரச்சினை.  அதாவது ராகுல் காந்தி ஒரு ஓரினசேர்கையாளர்.  அவருடைய பி ஜே பி காதலன் கொல்ல பட்டபின் அவருக்கு அரசியல் ஈடுபாடு இல்லை.  

தொடக்கம் முதல் பிரியங்காவை கொண்டுவந்திருக்கலாம் ஆனால் அவருடைய தில்லி மாபியா கணவர் பிரச்சினையாக இருந்தார்.  

மீளமுடியாத வீழ்ச்சி தான்
