I personally feel that there is one political party sans any ideology! it runs by the diktats of a family which has been manning (currently womanning) it since past 60 yrs. One needs to swear by family names if one wants to make it big in the Indian National Congress. It is quite a cliche that the party that leads out loudest cries of being 'Democratic' in reality is actually an ruthlessly 'Autocratic' party.
The incidents that supports my above theory is...
The first one is the gifting of the party ticket to Rajendra Shekhawat, to contest from the constituency of Amravati in the forthcoming Maharashtra assembly elections. The able?? Candidate accidentally happens to be the son of the President of the country(though I feel that her becoming the president of India was itself an accident). hence yuvraj shekhawat was given preference over Sunil Deshmukh, who had been a MLA from the Amravati seat twice but.... Alas he is not remotest relative, leave alone son of any congress big shot! thus the drama of the youth drive where more youth is being brought into the fold of congress seems a nonsensical to me. the drive is not to bring in more youth leaders but to certainly add to more chaprasis to the High Command office.
I think it is important to note that only if you are a spineless sychophant speci you can be a true Congressian. it was indeed infuriating to see the reports in media of how there was a flood of congress men in the homes of Dalits in Uttar Pradesh, on the day of Gandhi Jayanti. all were toeing the line of Rahul Baba, who had performed a similar spectacle few days back when he was touring the hinterlands of the poor state.
All I can say is ...... this is the heights of sycophancy and I wonder how low will the congressi netas stoop to scale the heights?
