BJP strikes Congress’ Royal Fort, Amed Patel in danger zone

Sonia-with-Ahmed-Patel

Siddheshwar Shukla

In its ambitious strategy to make Bharat free from Congress, the ruling BJP has targeted the ‘Royal Family’. The queen’s close confident Ahmed Patel seems to be first causality in the Congress ‘royal fort’.
Patel who has worked with three Congress chiefs from Nehru family – Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi; is seeking his fifth term from Rajya Sabha from Gujarat. He is considered the most trusted generals of Congress’ Queen Sonia Gandhi. Patel has been serving as political secretary to Sonia Gandhi since she ventured into politics. The elections for three Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat are scheduled on August 8, famous as August Kranti in the history of Indian National Movement during British Era. As BJP National President Amit Shah is all set to enter in Rajya Sabha from Gujarat, he has decided to bring an additional gift for his party – the ouster of Ahmed Patel from Rajya Sabha.
So far six Congress MLAs have resigned to join BJP. The grand old party has herded the remaining MLAs at an undisclosed location in Karnataka, the only large state ruled by the Nehru family’s political party. According to Congress, BJP is engaged in horse trading. “They are habitual in purchasing MLAs,” said Congress spokesperson. However he could not explain why his MLAs are ready to be sold-out in the open market like cattle. In fact Congress has no ideological background. This is the main reason of defection from the party. Congress since 1951 has been a political outfit where leaders were united under Nehru family for their vested interests. They remained intact till their interests were fulfilled but left it when they felt nothing more could be achieved.
The defeat of Ahmed Patel will be a big gain for BJP as it would be defeat of the Congress Queen herself. In fact an ideology less Congress has lost relevance for the country in the present political Congress. The part always survived on charisma of scions of Nehru family but now Rahul Gandhi seems to have no charisma. Perhaps Mahatma Gandhi is more justified today in seeking dismantling of Congress immediately after achieving its goal of independence.
