Divided Congress is clueless, aimless

Kochi: The grand old centrist party Congress is facing the worst ever crisis since its formation due to poor leadership and mismanagement leading to exodus and internal revolt by veteran party leaders.

Any child would say that the party’s decision to go solo in UP election was suicidal. A coalition in UP could have changed the election results. It was the Congress which had coined the word coalition in Kerala under the genius Congressman and late Kerala Chief Minister K Karunakaran. What led the Congress to fight alone inviting calamity is beyond one’s comprehension.

A party which deserves all the credit for laying the foundation of a strong democracy is now 
seem to be moving towards ‘Congress mukt Bharat’.

Despite committing blunders before and after independence, it was the Congress which nourished secularism, democracy, equality among others in the country.

Uniting people of different linguistic hues, ethnicity was really a commendable achievement of the party.
Can there be another party having a leader like K Kamaraj, who rejected the offer to become Prime Minister a number of times?
Congress’ greatness could be gauged by comparing it with the Islamic Pakistan born after splitting India. A much smaller country, Pakistan has witnessed a number of military coups, and has hardly seen a stable government.

Pakistan formed on religious platform has been a fertile land for fundamentalists and terror groups.

On the other hand democracy in India has thrived constantly at grassroot level.

The country has never seen a coup and the only blot was the Emergency of 1975. Waning of the party that did so much for uniting the country is disheartening.

It is to prevent this a whole lot of senior Congress leaders of G 23 block are still clinging on to it despite facing so much of alienation.

Congress deputy leader in Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma, party MPs Kapil Sibal, Manish Tewari and Akhilesh Prasad Singh, and former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda deserve a pat for attempting a serious overhaul.

It is a matter of relief that the centrist parties Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Trinamool Congress (TC) have achieved tremendous success in countering the onslaught of the ruling BJP.
AAP in Delhi and Punjab and TC in West Bengal have proved that people are keen for
corrupt free governance and value based politics.
The Congress should at least try to emulate them if they are serious about a comeback.
