Duplicity and sycophancy of the Congress

 Rahul Gandhi, the scion of Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, is the Vice President of the Congress party. The dynasty worshipers sing paeans of him even though his contribution to the party is zilch. In the Congress the sycophants compete with each other to set a new zenith. It resembles the feudal middle ages where a group of people won’t hesitate to say that the king/prince was an Indra or Chandra or Manmada even though the King/Prince was an ugly dimwit who wouldn’t have become even a watchman of the palace had he not born in the dynasty.raul milk

The primary reason for sycophancy is an inherent desire to obtain some material benefit. If sycophants are rewarded then it induces others to follow the same suit. The dynasty does exactly the same. It rewards the sycophants and crushes those who speak the truth. Merit has nothing to do in the party. The loyalty to the dynasty alone works. This has been proved on various occasions. In 2011, Amin Khan, the then Minister of Panchayati raj in Rajasthan, told party workers that their loyalty to the first family will definitely be rewarded at appropriate time. He said Pratibha Patil became President because she cooked food and washed utensils for Indira Gandhi when she was thrown out of power in 1977. Sycophancy rules the AICC meetings. The speakers invariably spend most of their talk time singing paeans to Sonia and her kids. Real issues are only secondary. Phases like “Pride of the world” and “Pride of womanhood” are lavishly used to impress the queen(Sonia).

Abhishek Singhvi went to the extent of equating Rahul Gandhi with “the divine“.  Oscar Fernandes equated Rahul Gandhi with Mahatma Gandhi. He said “Only two Gandhis are famous in the country. One is Mahatma Gandhi and the other is Rahul Gandhi . Just like Mahatma Gandhi who had toured the country before taking up his fight for independence, Rahul Gandhi is also going to the houses of Harijans and the poor, spending nights in their homes and eating with them”.  Rajya Sabha member E M Sudershan (Congress), while speaking during a discussion on the Working of the Rural Development Ministry, referred to Rahul Gandhi as a saviour of the rural poor and the downtrodden. He didn’t stop there. He said Rahul Gandhi, after his visit to Uttar Pradesh, had become a ”Yuvraj for the local poor and was being treated as a ”Yuvraj”. In spite of repeated objections from BJP the congress leader didn’t stop calling Rahul “Yuvraj“.  Almost all media channels called him “Yuvraj” or “Prince”. Dynasty channels like NDTV sycophantically promoted Rahul Gandhi on every occasion.


Narendra Modi rightly referred to Rahul Gandhi as Congress’ Shahzada. Shahzada is a Persian word meaning the son of Shah (or king) i.e. Prince.  Media went gaga over it. Congress and its media chamchas vilified Modi by saying he has reduced the public discourse to a new low by calling Rahul Shahzada. People like Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose etc blamed Modi for his so-called “uncivil” language.

The hypocrites in media and congress forgot the words they used for Modi. Here are a few samples taken from Deshgujarat website:

In 2007 election rally in Gujarat Sonia Gandhi called Narendra Modi “Maut ka Saudagar“(Merchant of Death). The people of Gujarat became angry with the remark. People gave emphatic victory to Narendra Modi led BJP. The Congress got routed in the election.


In March 2012 then Congress spokesperson Manish Tiwari, a well known rabble rouser and a foul mouth, has compared Narendra Modi with Dawood Ibrahim. He also compared Gujarat’s development with Germany’s development during Nazi regime.



On  7 June, 2013 another foul mouthed Congress party leader Renuka Chaudhary described Narendra Modi as a Virus called ‘NaMo-nitis’ which is like pneumonia.



Rashid Alvi, congress spokesperson called Narendra Modi “Yamraj“!


Gujarat Congress Chief Arjun Modhwadia  in his election rally speech in October 2012 said that Modi got infected with rabies. He called Modi a monkey. Then in November in an election rally he called Modi a failed husband referring to his alleged child marriage. Later Modhwadia lost his own seat in the election!


Mani Shankar Aiyer, a shameless dynasty sycophant, is known for his arrogance.  In March 2013 he called Modi a “dirty man”. He said Modi was a snake and a scorpion. In November 2012, in an election rally he called Modi a Lahu Purush (blood man), Asatya ka saudagar(Merchant of lies).



Digvijaya Singh in November 2012 compared Modi to Ravan. He compared Modi to Hitler.



In June 2013 Salman Kurshid abused Modi as Monkey. He said just like People come to watch a monkey performing a show on the street side, people also throng to Modi’s rallies. Then in August 2013 Salman Kurshid referred Modi as Khalnayak(Villain). The very next day he called Modi a frog.



On 17 August 2013, Gulam Nabi Azad passed a casteist remark on Narendra Modi. He called Modi a “Gangu Teli”. Teli is oil presser. Modi belongs to oil presser caste. Teli community is one of the extremely backward castes in India.



In June 2013, Jairam Ramesh, an arrogant Congress Minister, called Modi “Bhasmasur” .



In July 2013, Beni Prasad Verma, an uncouth Union Minister, called Modi a “Mad dog”.

hariprasadIn 2009 AICC General Secretary B K Hari Prasad described Modi as ‘Gandi Nali ka kida

Other Congress Leaders:

In 2009 Gujarat Congress General Secretary Rizwan Usmani called Modi Badtamiz, Nalayak. He fumed “Who is your father?, Who is your mother?”

Congress Rajya Sabha MP Hussain Dalwai, speaking at a rally said “Modi is just a mouse”

Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Goa Shantaram Naik called Modi Hitler and Polpot.

Congress Party’s Bheem Afzal said “Narendra Modi was a dictator, is a dictator and will remain a dictator”.

Congress MP Soma Ganda Patel called Modi a Ganchi(oil presser caste).

When Congress leaders indulged in personal abuse neither Media nor Congress high command rebuked them. But when Modi called Rahul Gandhi “Shahzada” all hell broke loose.  Media bigwig Rajdeep Sardesai never hesitates to hurl “f” word to his critics but he found “shahzada” uncivil.

The whole issue exposes the hypocrisy and duplicity of Indian media and Congress.


Media and fake encounters

Of late there has been a lot of hullabaloo in the media about the so-called fake encounter killings. I don’t want to get into the debate of whether the fake encounter killings are justified or not. What triggered me to write this article is the way in which our media handled the Ishrat Jahan ‘fake’ encounter case.
Congress sponsored media houses like NDTV and CNN-IBN ran programmes several hours of their air time painting a negative picture of Gujarat Government in general and Narendra Modi in particular. Anyone watching those programmes will ultimately have to come to a conclusion that Gujarat government is silencing the voice of muslims by killing them in fake encounters. Out of curiosity I made a simple attempt to look into fake encounter cases in various other states. Then I stumbled on a column written by eminent columnist and Chartered Accountant S Gurumurthy in The New Indian Express. He described the facts relating to Sohrabuddin’s fake encounter case, and fake encounters in other states of india.  I am surprised to learn that Gujarat stands nowhere in the picture. During 2002-2007, 440 fake encounters are registered with Human Rights commission. Out of 440 only 5 cases pertain to Gujarat, almost the lowest in the country. Uttar Pradesh tops the list with 231 cases, followed by Rajasthan 33, Maharashtra 31, Delhi 26, Andhra Pradesh 22, Uttaranchal 19, Assam 12, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka 10 each, Tamil Nadu 9, West Bengal 8, Bihar and Haryana 6 each. Not a single one of those cases is given any attention by the media.
Media houses made several insinuations against Modi and Amit Shah. Some sections of media, especially NDTV, tried to create an impression as if Ishrat Jahan and others were innocents, and have got killed just because they were muslims. They made several shows with cinematic background music creating a sympathy wave for the terrorists. They paraded family members of the terrorists and gave ample time to their lawyers. They tried to manipulate the public opinion by flooding one-sided stories. The trial has not even begun in the court, but the TV studios already delivered their judgement. They projected as if Police and intelligence agencies are villains and anti-muslim. Nevertheless There is a stark evidence to suggest that Ishrat Jahan has associated herself with terrorist activities. The associates of Ishrat Jahan were in touch with Muzamil, a LeT commander in Pakistan, over a satellite phone. The IB tapped the conversations, Those tapes are now available in the public domain. It clearly revealed their sinister plans. Moreover, the 26/11 conspirator David Headley has confessed before American FBI that Ishrat Jahan was indeed a Lashkar-e-Taiba operative. This further corroborates the claim of Indian Intelligence officials.
The left-liberal media never misses a chance to communalize the issue and bring in religion where it is irrelevant. It suits the congress party’s agenda very well. The so-called secular parties always want the Muslims to believe that  all the institutions like Police, IB, Army, Judiciary, Bureaucracy etc are filled with “communal” and “bigoted” Hindus who are hellbent to destroy the Muslims. They want Muslims to believe that the Congress Party alone could act as a bulwark and save them from the impending danger in hands of these “communalized” institutions.  They use media to demonize BJP and create a fear psychosis in the minds of Muslims so that Muslims would always be on their side as a permanent vote-bank. In the whole process of creating the vote bank the Congress Party and its paid-media forget the simple fact that they are destroying not only the institutions but also the very nation.
