Shivsena Criticized Congress: Criticizing the Congress, the Shiv Sena on Saturday expressed deep concern over its fate. The party said that the Congress is weakening badly as many leaders are leaving the party. Shiv Sena said that the condition of Congress is like a cloudburst. The problem is where to patch and seal.
Shiv Sena expressed concern towards the Congress, which is part of the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in Maharashtra, on a day when the party was celebrating the death anniversary of former Prime Minister late Rajiv Gandhi. Shiv Sena, in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, said how the party lost leaders like Sunil Jakhar, Hardik Patel and Jyotiraditya Scindia and Jitin Prasad in the past, yet everyone in the Congress talks of ‘reviving’ the party. .
What did Congress say for Sunil Jakhar?
Shiv Sena said Sunil Jakhar, son of veteran Punjab Congress leader late Balram Jakhar, led the Punjab Congress for years but recently sidelined Navjot Singh Sidhu was given unnecessary importance. Before leaving the Congress for the Bharatiya Janata Party, Sunil Jakhar said that I was speaking only in the interest of Punjab and the nation. Congress tried to suppress my voice and gave me notice. What did they gain by this?
The Shiv Sena said that the Congress raised leaders like Jakhar, Madhavrao Scindia and Jitendra Prasad and even did a lot for their children Sunil, Jyotiraditya and Jitin but their political ambitions were bigger than that of their father who was in comparison to the Congress. proved to be too small. However, the party needed him at the time of crisis.
Shiv Sena is not seeing future in Congress?
Shiv Sena said that the youth of the country are not seeing their future in the Congress, especially when they do not even have a full-time president for some time. The Shiv Sena said that though some positive decisions were taken in the Chintan Shivir, the issue of Congress leadership remained in the dark. It has been said in the editorial that in the states where elections are to be held, the Congress should have behaved well with the leaders of good image.
However, Congress lost Punjab because of Sidhu and Jakhar also left. Hardik Patel was not allowed to work as working president of Gujarat Congress. He says that the directionless party tied his hands and feet, due to which he resigned. The editorial said that PM Modi and BJP are all set for the 2024 elections, but the ‘leaking emergency’ continues in the Congress, which is not good for parliamentary democracy.
