The knives are already out for Surrender Singh.Rahul-G's orchestrated absence at the fare-you-well dinner was a deliberate signal to the faithful as whom to blame if there is a catastrophic debacle,worst ever results for the GOP. And the truth must be said that he is principally responsible for the debacle.He could've easily resigned years ago if he was not happy with the power-sharing gameplan of the UPA,between Party Pres. and PMO. He turned a blind eye to the crony-corruption that was awash in his ministry ,preferring to strut on the world stage with his bum-chums of the West ,in the hope of getting a Scandinavian award (p*ss with Pak,"P*ss in our time") and cement his legacy for the history books.He scarcely cared about what was happening to India,the plunging rupee,soaring prices-he forgot his "onions",collapse in industrial growth,national growth,rising unemployment,higher fuel and LPG prices and the boiling mood of the nation,waiting to deliver a massive kick in the backside of the Congress and its UPA looters and scooters,the latter day "Rajas"! Had he stepped down a year ago,vaulted into Rashtrapathi Bhavan as pres. and installed the Clown Prince as PM,giving him and his coterie a chance for the nation to get familiar with them in the saddle,with Mama pulling the strings from behind the curtain,the expected debacle would've been less severe.Perhaps with the "corruption king" out of the way,Rahul-G's unstained kurta might've brought home the bacon,and some allies before the hustings.
The days are long past when the mere sight of Indira Gandhi on the road electioneering in an open car would bring in the thousands wanting "darshan" and assure victory. Sonia is no Indira,though she has worked very hard to keep the party united under the umbrella of the dynasty.Unfortunately,Sonia's crore committee believed their own propaganda and couldn't see the relentless Modi wave growing nearer and nearer.By denigrating him and abusing him in every manner possible,they created a monster-for the Congress! Every attack brought him more votes and Mani Aiyer's "chai-wallah" jibe lost the Congress millions of voters all across the country.Mr.Modi must reward Mani A for his notable part in the NDA's victory and nominate him to the Rajya Sabha,where he can continue to lose votes for the Congress,entertain the nation,after all,"every court must have its clown"!
As for the likes of JJ and co. who are now running after the Modi bandwagon...after it passed them by ,and when they refused to join it when invited,"victory has many fathers (and mothers),defeat is an orphan".As a BJP wit perfectly put it,"after the exit polls,everyone now wants to join the NDA!" One sincerely hopes that Mr.Modi will sift the wheat from the chaff and reject rank opportunists who hands are stained with corruption ,controversy and the courts,and reject their overtures.During the campaign he said that he would prefer to lose the election rather than campaign on communal grounds.The same spirit would be very welcome when choosing his "after-results" supporters,especially those who ridiculed him during the campaign.
