Dirty Politics of Congress
Congress has realized it is loosing the election battle with Mr Modi and now has brought it down to personal attack on Narendra Modi. Congress found an issue which is highly personal in nature about Narendrabhai Modi`s marriage declaration. Modi got married 50 years back or it would be proper to put it this way, his parents got him married when he was a minor and was simply a victim of old traditional culture marrying children at a very early age. It could not be called even a legally acceptable marriage as per our marriage laws. Now Congress is making it a cheap political stunt holding it against Modi since Congress has no other election pitch in this Election to appeal for votes. What a shame for a party that prides 130 year old record!
RDX in Congress Kitty or Buffoonery?
Congress thinks that it has ammunition, the RDX against Narendra Modi to sharpen their attack on his personal life when Narendra Modi declared his marital status. Congress has become very aggressive with this ‘new ammunition’ they got to play with their media friends. I was watching the Karan Thapper show yesterday and was not very surprised to see him, provoking Congress spokesperson into taking serious action on the issue with the Election commission. Same case with few other TV channels who are desperately engaged in propagating heavily to tarnish the image of Modi. And today… Congress has gone with the issue to the election commissioner for the probe as Congress is hoping at least finally this issue will help them Modi`s elimination from the race with Rahul Gandhi on Prime ministership.
Let Congress Explain If They Can….
But the big question that needs to be answered is…Does the Indian constitution recognize child marriage as valid? Narendra Modi was asked to get married by his parents some times 46 years back when he was just a boy of 17 year old and a MINOR. He was not even an adult that time. What is Congress to trying say? They support, child marriages in 2014 ? Do they support illegal marriage of minors? This is made into a political issue by Modi`s opponents, which can only be termed as character assassination with political motives. This is going too far and section of the media is playing it again with their political patronage with Congress. I want to ask… Does Congress support Child marriage? If Modi was merely 17 years old, what was the age of the girl? Were they both adult? They were not. This has happened 45 to 50 years back and if we consider the economic and cultural backgrounds of the families then, such child marriages were forced upon by parents as a matter of cultural traditions.
The question Congress needs to answer is…Is Congress supporting such old traditions in the 21st century? And what about the personal life of an individual? Is it not a cheap way of questioning such highly personal issues to a person who was not even responsible, not even asked whether he wanted to get married or not? Never asked what he wanted to do in life? That is the way social and cultural traditions were followed that time. That was the era when children were not given the freedom to make their own decisions nor allowed to question the decisions of their elders. Don’t we know this? If we decide to make every issue political for political millage, then somebody will justify what Azam Khan said about Kargil that the war was fought by Muslim Soldiers only and won and no Hindu soldier were fighting in Kargil war? Then in this political one-upmanship..to please the vote banks. What Mulayum Singh Yaday uttered in his speech about the Rapists..”Boys are Boys” they make mistakes sometimes, for which they need not be hanged? Also this can be justified. How far this shameless political class is going to take politics to? And again, if the personal life of people who are in public positions have to be questioned on the basis of high morality, why only question Narendra Modi ? Why don’t we start from Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who was having an affair with Lord Mountbatten`s wife ?`Was it morally acceptable`Having an affair with somebody`s wife? Is Congress willing to publicly accept our first Prime Minister had a loose character who had an illicit relationship with somebody`s wife? Why not talk about Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi too? Why not Digvijay Singh, Sharad Pawar, Ashok Chavan, Pawan Bansal, who has many skeletons hidden in their cupboards and are fighting elections ? Are their pasts clean, unquestionable? Do all of them have morally high personal characters? Will somebody like Digvijay Singh, and Mrs Shobha Oza, the Congress spokesperson tell the nation… about Rahul Gandhi`s back ground?
There are serious charges against Rahul Gandhi in the public domain- about his Degree, his education, his Italian passport and his arrest at Boston airport for carrying 200,000 US dollar cash in his bag. Will the Congressmen taking the high moral ground explain the countrymen, what is all that about? That may or may not be true, but the allegations are leveled and that are doing rounds in the media.? Which are not refuted till today, nor challenged by the Gandhi family? Now somebody can say, it is not stretching the matter too far and putting serious allegations against anyone who wants to become the Prime Minister of India? How can you trivialize it? Just recently, we read in the newspapers, that the court in USA demanded passport photocopy of Sonia Gandhi as she has been the accused of protecting some Congressmen who have criminal charges for inciting, provoking and participating in the 1984 Sikh riots ? The case is lodged by a Sikh group in the US with the court for gross Human Rights Violation it is reported. Would Congress government like to explain to this nation what is Sonia Gandhi accused for? It is only demanded because she too is in public life and as a President of Congress party running this government. There was another news in the media that said, Sonia Gandhi is the 11th richest politician in the world who has around 200 billion US dollars in her account!
If Modi`s underage marriage when he was a minor can be questioned on moral grounds, there are serious charges against many others in Congress and some are against Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi!! The senior most legal expert Ram Jethmalani has challenged the Gandhi family to take him to court for leveling these allegations. Even Dr Subramaniam Swamy has leveled serious charges against them. Nobody from Congress has responded. Rahul Gandhi too wants to become the Prime Minister of this country. Should he not come out clean on the allegations leveled at him? What is the public supposed to understand? Are the allegations True or false? When congress is trying to put Modi in the Dock, let Congress explain about their own past.Specially of Rahul and Sonia Gandhi. Will they? Otherwise…Congress political motives to change the election focus from their 10 year, decade of Decay, will remain the main suspect.
