The BJP, which has been told that the Congress is completely finished, is the most eyed of the Congress’ activities. Every day Congress’s Bharat Jodh Yatra is being attacked, the presidential election is also being targeted. The President is being elected after 22 years in Congress. Earlier presidential elections were held in 1997 and 2000. Now there is another election. Sonia Gandhi won the last election. He was then challenged by Jitendra Prasad, a veteran leader of Uttar Pradesh. Now it has been decided that a non-Gandhi will be the Congress president.
BJP’s stance on this is also my heart. The BJP had earlier promoted that the post of Congress president was reserved for the Nehru-Gandhi family. Any member of the same family can be president, whereas anyone in BJP can be president. But it is also a kind of illusion. However, in case of Congress, BJP’s case is correct as Sonia and Rahul Gandhi were the only presidents for the last 22 years. This is why the BJP has an opportunity to promote that Congress is a dynastic party, there can be no non-Gandhi president and the party always looks after the interests of a family.
Now that it has been decided that Sonia Gandhi will step down as President and neither Rahul Gandhi nor Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will become President and a non-Gandhi will take the reins of the party after 22 years, the BJP is saying whatever. Dolls of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi will be made. Think, there is no peace in the Congress. If the Nehru-Gandhi family is the head, there is a dynasty and if the non-Gandhi family is the puppet of the family! While no one has filed a nomination for the presidential post yet, the BJP has taken names and said that whatever happens to Ashok Gehlot or Shashi Tharoor, he will be Sonia’s, Rahul’s puppet.
No one can deny that the president of the Congress will be the one who has the support of the family and after becoming the president he will also do as he is asked to do. But it is not true in the case of BJP? In BJP too, either the top leaders of the party become the president or become the party president of their own accord. He acts as he is told from above. JP Nadda may be the party president in the BJP right now, but the real power rests with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Similarly, a non-Gandhi will be made President wherever the real strength of the Congress is.
