The rise and fall of India’s grand-old Indian National Congress Party – (INC): Glimpse The Sequence

The Indian National Congress, founded by a well-meaning group of British bureaucrats, finally converted the war-time work-in-progress of our struggles into full freedom in 1947  The party had innumerable, patriotic, well-meaning leaders who had sacrificed their lives for the country.  Yet, when the time for reckoning came, some manipulated the system to gain personal advantage, patently unfair.

Nehru side-stepped Sardar Patel to become PM.  Not content, he made daughter, Indira, the party president,  She had no claim to the position, stalwarts were waiting in hope, yet it was manipulated.  And, the lady gathered undesirables to advise her, resorted to intrigues, ignored those who built up the party,vertically split the Congress.

The Trojan horses within tasted blood, looked for  only weaklings as leaders who would depend on them.  After Sastry’s sudden death, the crown of PM  fell on Indira’s head and, when she was killed, on the head of her son, who was only a professional airlines-pilot.  When he got killed, the party that was with Sitaram Kesari was snatched, locking him up in the toilet and given to Rajiv’s widow, least qualified and, an Italian, to boost.

When she got tired, the baton was passed to her bachelor son.  Fearing that he may not marry & procreate, his sister with family responsibilities is drawn in as a stand-by.  What kind of political party is this?  And, how can intelligent,honest and respectable people march with it.

Louis XI and wife, Marie Antoniette were guillotined by the French people, not because they were bad but their ancestor, Louis XIV was a cruel despot, whom they could not get at.

Best for the Congress to become a State party, in Kerala, rather than be washed out.
