The Hatred of Congress’ First Family for Modi Will Intensify

It is an interesting phenomenon that a particular political party and its sustaining dynasty continues to be irreconcilable to the fact that it has lost the people’s mandate and has been designated to live without the power that comes with it, at least for five years. The year 2015 has continuously seen the expressions of its irresponsible behaviour that stems from an inability to come to terms with political defeat.

The Congress, especially its leading family, always takes defeat personally and it is in its tradition—if one is to recall the treatment meted out to Chandrashekhar—to create ruckus and act as street toughs and bullies, targeting those who have been the causes of its defeat. It consigns governance, delivery, stability and commitment to parliamentary systems and traditions to the dungeon, and its sole obsession is to try and create legislative and political disruptions in the country.

For a party that has been in power for so long, such a denigration of the democratic and parliamentary traditions is lamentable. The deeper raison for such a wild behaviour is the intense disdain for a leader who has risen through ceaseless struggle from a railway platform to the high office of the prime minister, despite the Congress’ first family trying to stymie that rise. In the coming year, one will see this intense hatred for Narendra Modi that the Congress’ first family spews only get more accentuated. The family lives in a delusional world and believes that demonising and publicly berating Modi will ensure that their depleted and confused flock survives.

Meanwhile, the fumbling designated prince of Congress will forever remain unprepared, running around badly enacting the role of India’s saviour. The intemperance in political behaviour and articulation from the group of 44 will increase, also because we have a prime minister who strictly adheres to democratic traditions and never allows his personal insult to come in the way of decision-making.

Modi’s approach to the states, his assiduously demonstrated faith in India’s federal structure, which the Congress’ first family has always worked to weaken by trampling upon regional leaders and sentiments, has brought about a stability and faith that such a tradition will eventually strike deeper roots in India. Despite intemperate outbursts from some maverick regional leaders against him, Modi continues with dignity and perseverance to respect diversities of opinion and does not allow that insult to influence or shake his deeply embedded faith in the federal as well as united destiny and goal of India.

Meanwhile, Communists will continue floundering, disintegrate and end up becoming lackeys of various political forces, both external and internal. While paid intellectuals and card-carrying ideologues will keep crying “intolerance” from time to time, especially on foreign soil during junkets, the rise of India as a civilisational state shall continue. That irreversible march has begun; trivialities cannot arrest it in the long run.
