The Self-decimation of Congress in Various States
|by Dr. Varanasi Ramabrahmam|
The Andhra leaders with their own calculations to be in power and good looks of the high command, have allowed the situation to deteriorate to present state by being silent when it is necessary to register their protests and work against the division with all their force, are now becoming unemployed politically for rest of their lives as this decision of congress to go ahead with the division of Andhra Pradesh makes them.
This is now belatedly recognized by the senior leaders of Andhra Congress leaders. Now there is no way but to suffer unemployment politically. They have to play second fiddle to Jagan if they want to continue with the Congress.
By going forward with the division of Andhra Pradesh insensitively and un-democratically, the congress has laid the seed to decimate the Congress in both Andhra and Telangana regions in exchange for a few parliament seats.
This is not the first time the congress has done so. In the 1970s the congress has formed alliance alternatively with one or the other of Dravidian parties in Tamilnadu and allowed itself to be inconsequential in Assembly by donating major MLA seats to the Dravidian parties neglecting the protests of its state leaders. Now the Congress exists there only for name sake. It willingly reduced to this pathetic state in exchange for few parliament seats. Now state leaders are just servants without any citizens' support.
In Kerala it is always a coalition alternatively. In Karnataka the present chief minister is a former strong JD(S) leader. How much he can help Congress in ensuing elections to parliament is any one's guess. But for corruption in top BJP leadership of the state Congress might not have won recent assembly elections and form its government, of course under a non-Congress person till recently. Karnataka is lost to Janata party 1980s. And that situation is continuing till date.
In Andhra Pradesh it is getting tradition support with majority number of MP seats and the recent government formation has been possible only because of large number of wins from Andhra Pradesh. With this Telangana bungling it now became a secondary or tertiary force after Jagan party in Andhra region and after TRS in Telengana region. How many seats it can get under the understanding from these regional parties headed by corrupt politicians is difficult to predict. Thus now it decimated itself in Andhra Pradesh region.
In Goa, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chttisgadh, Uttarkhand, Assam it is alternating between Congress and state opposition parties or BJP.
In Maharashtra it is playing second fiddle to Pawar congress. But for alliance with Pawar, who questioned the foreign origin of the tallest person and broke away, the congress is not a force on its own.
In Gujarat anyway it cannot become a force in near future. Rajastan is now hanging in doubt. Next assembly elections may bring BJP back. Punjab is lost to Akalidal-BJP combination alternatively. Kashmir is a coalition with National Conference. UP, Bihaa and Puducherry are lost to the regional parties long time back. Congress made itself inconsequential by its management in these states. Didi now owns Bengal and BJD orissa. It is interesting to note that considerable number of opposition state chief ministers are Congress men a decade back or some even till recently.
Arunachal Pradesh is sympathetic to congress. Tripura is always CPM strong-hold because of its able chief minister Manik Sircar. In Sikkim, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Miijoram it is coalition.
Thus with its arrogant and insensitive and un-democratic functioning both at party and at government level the Congress decimated itself gradually in various states and is now making vain effort to get some seats in Andhra Pradesh by dividing the prosperous state in company with selfish, narrow-minded, corrupt and uncultured and uncivilized leaders and parties.
Let us see to where Andhrapradesh and the nation are being led.
