Congress in Tatters

November 18, 2021 |

The Congress party is now a sinking ship as many political observers affirm with an exception of Priyanka Gandhi Vadhra who is keeping her flock together in Uttar Pradesh in view of ensuing elections to the state assembly. In Jammu and Kashmir, the Pradesh Congress is in tatters with Sonia Gandhi loyalist G A Mir struggling to survive the onslaught from confidants of former Chief Minister G N Azad. Whatever said and done, there is strong resentment brewing against the incumbent for his alleged dereliction in steering the party to success in polls to DDC bodies or Panchayats in which the party was relegated as non-contestant party. Those spearheading the campaign for Mir’s ouster have never accepted his leadership which has always been an irony in the party. The high command has been superimposing or paratrooping leaders as heads of Jammu and Kashmir unit without taking feedback from the grassroots workers with the result there has been a disconnect between party and its workers. The erstwhile Presidents except Azad have failed to revitalize its cadre due to reasons known to them. However, Azad era has been the golden period for the Congress party in Jammu and Kashmir with his tenure as CM one of the brightest ones in the history of the state. Azad has not only been an able administrator but took into confidence his party men while in power in Srinagar or Delhi. His unequivocal stand in matters crucial for the people have been endorsed and appreciated by all as evident by his support he gets during the rallies at this juncture when Bharatiya Janata Party is targeting more than 50 seats in polls for the assembly. The callous approach of high command is evident from the crisis which has snowballed into resignations of major players in the party as they had knocked its door with constant reminders about their resentment against Mir. On his part, Mir claims to have won the seat for Congress in South Kashmir’s once volatile constituency in 1996 when none could dare to visit the villages for votes. Now the ball is in the court of party bosses to set the house in order otherwise it would reach its nemesis soon. Irony of the matter is that Congress has never learnt any lesson from the past mistakes and is constantly repeating it again and again by ignoring those who have shed sweat for the party and feel ignored and isolated at a time when it is struggling countrywide.
