Congress is playing better politics than other parties it seems in UP as one leader is trying to get the votes in the name of family and another asking to give Congress one chance to change the face of Uttar Pradesh because the ruling party has not performed better. Congress MP Rahul Gandhi trying to woo the nationalistic sentiments of the voters by making remarks on the division of Pakistan after 1971 war with Pakistan.
On the other hand, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh concentrated on minority voters and promised welfare schemes and bank loans for Muslims in a practice to create a new Uttar Pradesh. He also declared Rahul Gandhi the state’s new leader and the future of Uttar Pradesh.
Rahul Gandhi is your future. He is sweating it out for you. Please give one chance to Congress.
However the major question is that is Mr. PM right when he declars Rahul as the future of UP when the young MP is making irrelevant statements in UP election rallies and showing anarchic mentality.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi has claimed his family was behind the Bangladesh formation. He said this during in an election rally in Uttar Pradesh to cash the nationalistic sentiments of the people.
But the statement may be termed as politically and diplomatically incorrect as this confirms that India tried to destabilize Pakistan at that time. Making such remark at the time when India is trying hard to get Pakistani cooperation to strengthen bilateral relation with Pakistan may not be called as diplomatically correct.
To lucid such thoughts now after 40 years of the Bangladesh war may prove extremely dangerous. He is the person who belongs to the family of great leader Nehru and diplomatically perfect Indira Gandhi and such statement proves him politically immature.
Earlier, he also had said during another election campaign that because of the absence of anyone from his family in national politics the disputed structure was demolished in UP in 1992.
The leaders of different political parties reacted sharply on such kind of remarks. BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra said Rahul Gandhi has insulted other great freedom fighters and credited Gandhi family alone for India’s independence.
He said that Rahul should remind that it was during the rule of the same family that Pakistan was given back everything what Indian forces had won in that conflict.
BJP leader Prakash Javadekar said that Rahul Gandhi is showing an exhibit of a monarchic mindset that history has been written by Gandhis. If Gandhis take credit for Bangladesh separation from Pakistan, they should also take the blame of partioning India as well.
