Congress on Collision Course

Politics TodayThe Indian National Congress , which is holding its83rd plenary session in its 125th year of existence in New Delhi ,  is plagued by the problem of lack of vision and and unimaginative leadership . When leaders like Digvijay Singh rule the roost in the party , the fate of the party is not going to be any brighter . Instead of looking at sudden spurt of corruption cases and causes of the dismal performance of the party in Bihar Assembly elections and Gujrat local body elections , the party is preparing itself  for collision with the RSS and the BJP . How can a rational man say that mistrust between the Hindus and the Muslims is the result of L K Advani's Rath Yatra in 1990 ? Digvijay Singh is bent upon creating a situation in which the two largest political parties find themselves at each other's throat . This will not only be bad for our polity but for the country and society as a whole . Sonia Gandhi's five steps to eradicate corruption would have carried conviction had she not allowed herself and her cronies to defend the corruption of the Congress govt. by juxtaposing it with the corruption of the BJP .
