Congress: War Within

November 13 2017

The vitriolic relationship between Congress tow of the Congress party’s Young Turks, Manish Tiwari and Deepender Hooda, is no secret. But perhaps even Rahul Gandhi could not have anticipated that this would take the form of open brawls in public fora. Apparently a week or so ago, Hooda had gone to address a meeting of the Congress student’s wing, National Students Union of India, or NSUI. Soon, the national secretary of NSUI, Surabhi Dwivedi twitted: “Today Hooda Sir has given a new slogan, ‘You and I, NSUI’, so thank you so much from the core of our hearts for thus inspiring us with the slogan.” No sooner, Tiwari jumped into the fray and lashed back on Twitter: “This is an old slogan. It was first given in 1985 by someone who was then the president of the JNU students’ union… the same man is today is with the Telegu Desam party and his wife is the defence minister of the country.” Tiwari, without naming, targeted Nirmala Sitharaman’s husband Parakala Prabhakar, who is the Communications Advisor to the Chandrababu Naidu government in Andhra Pradesh.
