Captain desperate to keep Congress’ Sinking ship afloat

Punjab electoral battle seems more interesting this time as a lot “unexpected” is happening. In this Tsunami of “hits and trials” and “sought out plans”, Congress has decided to follow the approach of “make hay while the sun shines”. But the problem here is to make sure if the sun is really shining or its just some temporary brightness that may seem shiny but is an illusion.

Golden Opportunity: Navjot Singh Sidhu
Let us clear this air by coming to the point. Two big “political tsunamis” that happened in the last week is resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu from Rajya Sabha and suspension of Akali MLA Pargat Singh from BJP-SAD. Although Sidhu did not give any statement or cited any reason for his resignation; but Congress surely sees this act of him as a “golden opportunity”. Captain clearly welcomed Sidhu in the party and even reminded him of the “past times” when his father was a part of Congress party. Getting no response from Mr. Sidhu, the focus of Congress shifted to another “expelled member” i.e. Pargat Singh.

“Topic of Interest”: Pargat Singh
A meeting was held in Delhi to discuss the further plans and moves. As per the sources, a major part of this discussion involved the former Olympian. Asha Kumari, Capt Amarinder, Charanjit Channi, and Ambika Soni were present at the meeting. Pargat singh, however, showed no interest in this proposal of Captain Amarinder Singh.

Rat Race
Calling the “expelled or resigned” members in his party, other members of Congress were annoyed with Captain Amarinder Singh. Sources claim that some party members sent an e-mail to President Sonia Gandhi to complain about this “annoying behavior” of Amarinder Singh. “Competition threat” can be other reason of Congress party workers for not allowing “wild card entry” of any outsider in the semi-finals of this race.

The recent action of Captain Amarinder Singh clearly hints towards the uncertainty and immature plans of the party. It’s like Captain wants to take any risk to win after two defeats in Punjab.

After AAP; it’s now Congress to woo voters

“It would not be wrong to say that the grand old party of the country, Congress is following the footsteps of AAP in Punjab”

After Aam Aadmi Party’s much hyped “lunch” and “dinner” polity, Congress has launched “Coffee with Captain” campaign in state, where Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) President, Captain Amarinder Singh hosts coffee parties for select audience.

It is a known fact that it was Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that had started organizing paid meals with political leader as a part of its cheap frolics to be in media and social media. And now when the state is heading towards 2017 assembly polls; Punjab Congress is also going the AAP way of despicable politics.

The only difference between the two is that AAP’s lunches and dinners are aimed at raising funds for the party and its leaders; Captain’s coffee party was held free of cost for a select audience.

But, as it was launch of Campaign, more than 500 people had gathered at a local park to attend the event, where youth raised questions on Captain’s plans to provide them with jobs if he formed government in the state.

Noticeably, it was Prashant Kishore who had extolled Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s past as “Tea-seller” and turned it into a generic outreach with ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ campaign. The same Prashant Kishore has now picked up coffee to promote Captain Amarinder Singh’s electioneering. He has been appointed as the Congress’ poll strategist for Punjab assembly polls and also possesses Indian Political Awareness Committee (IPAC).

It is worth mentioning here that Captain, who comes from the ‘Royal family’ of Patiala, has often come under lot of criticism for his inaccessibility.

An official Facebook page ‘Punjab Da Captain’ has been created especially where the quiz, ‘8 Baj Gaye Kya’ is uploaded at 8 pm every day. Congress has been offering Rs 1,500-worth Flipkart vouchers every day to those who answer correctly and even for those who answer incorrectly as a “bribe”.

“Coffee with Captain” campaign is more or less being billed as an exercise to woo urban voters which are largely divided between the BJP and the Congress in cities like Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandhar.

At the end, fact remains that despite of ridiculing Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi, all these politicians want to copy him. A day is not far when other leaders across nation would be copying him too 🙂

 

 

Congress leader’s remark likening Kanhaiya to the Bhagat Singh draws Public ire

one

The unsung heroes like Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru had fought for the cause on Indian nationalism and had shed their blood for the liberation of the land as well as the people of India, in order to provide them a better life, unregulated by the humiliation of imperialist dominance and colonial exploitation.

But, the true legacy of India’s bravest martyrs is insulted by the Senior Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor, who compared Kanhaiya Kumar with Bhagat Singh. It is worth mentioning here that Kanhaiya Kumar is an accused in a sedition case for raising anti-national slogans at JNU. Bhagat Singh never became the member of the Communist Party of India (CPI), established in 1925-26, of whose student body Kumar is a member.

Congress leader drew Public ire

Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor landed in a controversy over insulting one of the greatest freedom fighter of India, Shaheed Bhagat Singh. While addressing a group of students at the JNU, Tharoor, while listing the names of victims of sedition law under British rule had said Bhagat Singh was the Kanhaiya of his time.

“The biggest victims of sedition law under the British rule were Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Annie Besant and Bhagat Singh,” said Shashi Tharoor. He further remarked that “Bhagat Singh was the Kanhaiya Kumar of his time”, which drew Public ire.

People against Congress

“Comparing anti-Nationalist Kanhaiya Kumar with Shaheed Bhagat Singh is an insult to the freedom fighter and all the patriots, who chanted ‘Jai Hind’ and ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ till their last breath”, said Gurdarshan Singh, who hails from Punjab.

“Shaheed bhagat Singh was a great freedom fighter and how can politicians like Shashi Tharoor compare the duo”, said Manisha, a Delhiite. “Shashi must be punished for his shameful act”, she further added.

Not only it drew Public ire but also politicians took strong exception to Tharoor’s comment saying it was an insult to the “great freedom fighter” as well as all patriots of the country, who laid their lives while fighting for India’s independence.

Strongly lambasting the Congress for standing with the anti-national people, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Punjab President Shri Kamal Sharma pointed out that earlier ‘All India Congress Committee’ (AICC) Vice-President Rahul Gandhi had went to JNU, extending his whole-hearted support and solidarity with Kanhaiya, who was arrested on sedition charges and is out on bail. Now, Tharoor has gone to JNU.

CONGRESS 75

It would not be wrong to say that with Tharoor passing the ridiculous comment and visiting JNU, as a messenger of Congress Vice-President, it is very much clear that Congress is now openly pampering anti-national ideology and those pursuing it.

March 23 is the martyrdom day of the Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, who gave supreme sacrifice fighting for ‘Bharat Ki Azadi’.

Every time today’s politicians drag Shaheed Bhagat Singh and appropriate him for their political slugfest which is shameful. The debt of gratitude we Indians owe to Bhagat Singh can never be repaid.
