Rahul’s Last Minute Disaster

August 13 2018

If the Congress has lost the Deputy Speaker poll, then its president Rahul Gandhi has to take up the defeat’s responsibility on his head. Rahul walked turtle-speed on the entire strategizing and planning. At the same time, his opponents Narendra Modi and Amit Shah showed that they are both 24X7 politicians and politics is in their blood.
Actually, the Congress remained engaged in finding the right tune of opposition unity till the end and they too took too long to announce the name of their candidate BK Hari Prasad.
Initially, the Congress had sought a name from the Trinamool Congress for the nomination but things didn’t work out there. After that, they looked upon SP. Then finally it was decided that Vandana Chavan of NCP should be fielded, as she is a Maratha and the Maratha reservation is the hot topic in Maharshtra. In such a situation, Shiv Sena will not be able to risk going against Vandana.
After this, Sharad Pawar spoke to Naveen Patnaik, but the latter told him that he has given the Prime Minister his word for Harivansh. This way the NCP retreated.
And at the end, Congress had to field its candidate the last moment.
On behalf of Congress, Ahmed Patel and Ghulam Nabi Azad were shouldering the responsibilities of the Rajya Sabha Deputy Speaker polls. Leaders like Arvind Kejriwal were awaiting Rahul Gandhi’s phone call. Neither Rahul ringed them up, nor did the opposition unity tune to the right note.
