When Enemies Of Enemy Flocked Together

March 03 2019

Nowadays, many veteran leaders of opposition parties are become the experts of the great Opposition Unity. Take for example SP’s Professor Ram Gopal Yadav and Mayawati’s confidante Satish Mishra. The two were once arch enemies, but now they can be found whispering into each other’s ears in any corner of the Central Hall.
A few days back when opposition leaders flocked together to finalise the ‘Common Minimum Programme’, Mamata Banerjee and Rahul Gandhi were seen having a serious discussion in a room, while in an other room Chandrababu Naidu, Sharad Pawar and others could be seen talking. Sonia Gandhi was also present in the second room.
After her discussion with Rahul, Mamata came to the other room and started talking to Sonia separately. Sitaram Yechury was pacing up and down outside that room. The draft which the opposition parties had to prepare on Pulwama, its English version’s responsibility was handed over to Mamata’s confidante Derek O’Brien, and Yechury was assisting him on it.
You might recall when India had defeated Pakistan and the latter was separated from Bangladesh, then the head of the Opposition Atal Behari Vajpayee had said ‘at present there is only one political party, i.e. India, and its leader is Indira Gandhi.’
But the scenario is not the same now. Post Surgical Strike 2.0, Rajnath Singh was asked to participate in the all party meeting; PM Modi had distanced himself from it.
