THERE is a sinister plan hatched by the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty to implicate Shri Narendra Modi in a web of legal cases relating to 2002 communal violence and some alleged encounter cases. Accordingly, the Congress party led central government is working overtime to implicate, popularly elected Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Narendra Modi sometime between now and October this year.
Hectic efforts are on to subvert every institution and influence every wing of the government to implement this nefarious design. Disgruntled officials of the central services working in Gujarat have been used as pawns in this “target Modi by hook or crook” operation.
IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt who had filed an affidavit in Supreme Court alleging that Shri Narendra Modi instructed the police officials to let Hindus vent their anger during communal riots in 2002 is one such conduit acting at the behest of the ruling Congress party at the Centre. This was established when Bhatt and State Congress president Arjun Modhwadia tried to influence a junior police officer Karansinh Panth to depose against Shri Narendra Modi.
When Panth refused to yield, they threatened him saying that the State government (led by Shri Narendra Modi) would collapse in two months and the chief minister would be arrested. Gujarat Police have registered an FIR and are investigating the case. This episode clearly exposes the nefarious designs of the Congress party to destabilise a democratically elected government in Gujarat.
The reasons for targeting the popularly elected Gujarat chief minister are not far to seek. The Congress is frustrated by its repeated electoral failures in Gujarat and sees no hope for its revival as long as Shri Narendra Modi is at the helm. It also sees an opportunity in consolidating the Muslim vote bank across the country by targeting the Gujarat chief minister.
But even more importantly, the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty fears that Shri Narendra Modi could threaten the future success of Rahul Gandhi. A recent mood of the nation poll widely published only confirmed this fear. It showed that Shri Narendra Modi pipped Rahul Gandhi to the post in leadership popularity rankings by several notches. The findings aren’t surprising.
Shri Narendra Modi has emerged as a national icon owing to his impressive leadership of Gujarat which has witnessed rapid development and fast track growth. His zero tolerance policy against corruption and terrorism has won him admirers all over the country. For a country and populace craving for good governance and reeling under the misgovernance of the Congress led UPA government at the Centre, Modi’s virtues are of great significance.
The authoritarian Congress regime at the Centre which is staring at a precipitous fall in public support due to a series of scams realises that it has lost all moral right to govern. It believes that the only way to safeguard its future is by targeting all its political rivals who pose a threat to the dynasty’s future. The midnight crackdown on Baba Ramdev’s supporters showed its fascist tendency and it is once again in full display in Gujarat.
The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty’s motto seems to be simple: if you can’t defeat an opponent, eliminate him. Unscrupulous politics is the hallmark of Congress party’s culture. No other party or leader in power has ever practiced such coarse politics. Browse the internet to see how people, particularly the youth hate the mother-son duo of Gandhis.
Most BJP sympathisers wonder how the Gandhi family, mired it was in so many scams and misdeeds, was let off lightly when the party was in power for six years at the Centre. Many of them aver that the Gandhis would have been in jail if only the NDA government had pursued cases against them seriously. But that simply is not the kind of politics that the BJP has ever practiced. It is just that the Congress culture is different.
In attempting to target Shri Narendra Modi in alleged encounters of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Ishrat Jahan, the Congress party is showing its love, affection and concern for human rights of gangsters and alleged terrorists. The same Congress party led government at the Centre had appointed the Banerjee Committee to concoct evidence that the Godhra train carnage that killed 59 innocent Hindus was an accident and not a pre-meditated terrorist act.
The Bollywood song Yeh public hai, ye sab jaanti hai captures vividly the wisdom of the public in this country. Men-women, educated and uneducated can all see through the cynical games played by political parties.
A government that has lost its mind and has gone berserk, one hopes, will come to its senses and refrain from targeting political rivals in a mafia like manner. Caught in its habitual hubris, if it overreaches itself, it is sure to face an electoral backlash more severe than that of 1977 that followed Indira Gandhi’s Emergency.
