New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi finally got wind of it this time. Although he himself keeps preparing the pitch for BJP, but he immediately sidelined Digvijay Singh who raised questions on Balakot air strike. Rahul said very clearly that there is no coordination between the thinking of Congress party and Digvijay Singh. The former party president said that our army is doing a great job and it never needs to give proof of any operation. But the question is, has Digvijay Singh crossed the limits for the first time or is he a habitual trespasser? Then why this question only to Digvijay Singh, along with many other leaders, does Rahul Gandhi himself lag behind in giving Sanjivani to BJP? Don’t these Congressmen know that in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections itself, a section of highly sensitive voters was created which doubles up like Sursa due to opposite statements on issues like Hindutva and nationalism. You can know the story of Sursa from Ramayana or you can search Google. Digvijay Singh did the same again
Well, we are talking about the Congress leaders who are promoting BJP’s agenda before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and before that the assembly elections of nine states. Let’s start with the most recent case. Digvijay Singh, an outspoken opponent of Hindutva and nationalism, has raised an issue which hardly any Indian likes except the alleged Tukde Tukde gang and its supporters. It can be said in another way that hardly anyone except a handful of agendaists was not disgusted by Digvijay Singh’s statement. Air Marshal (retd) Raghunath Nambiar, who was the Chief of the Western Command, indirectly called Digvijay Singh a liar. He warned the countrymen not to fall prey to these false propaganda. Digvijay Singh had told the forum of Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir that many Pakistanis are claimed to have been killed in the Balakot air strike, but till date not a single proof has been given.

Congress has a long list of leaders like Digvijay Singh, Mani Shankar Aiyar, Sam Pitroda, Salman Khurshid, about whom there is a general perception that all of them work harder for BJP than BJP leaders. BJP even claims that whenever Rahul Gandhi and Digvijaya Singh campaign, BJP’s vote increases. To some extent even the Congress has believed this claim of the BJP, otherwise why would both the leaders have disappeared from the assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat? Now to say that Rahul Gandhi was on Bharat Jodo Yatra, who will believe this if he understands politics? So the question is whether before the Lok Sabha elections, the same mistakes are being made by the Congress party which strengthen the claims of the BJP?

BJP’s desire and Congress’s weakness
Before finding the answer to this, let us know what claims BJP makes for its arch rival Congress? The changed BJP under the guidance of Modi-Shah has started playing openly on issues including Hindutva, nationalism on which Atal-Advani’s BJP used to throw dice from behind the scenes. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma changed the rules of the game. From Muslim appeasement to mafia, and from anti-Hindu to anti-national forces, actions are being taken openly, which could not be imagined till a few years ago. The central and state leaders of BJP are able to do this because they are getting huge public support for this. In 2014, the wave of nationalism brought the BJP back to power at the Center after 10 years and an even bigger victory in the next general elections in 2019. The expansion of BJP in the states as well and the shrinking mass base of the opponents are testimony to this fact.

Rahul Gandhi defies himself!
So how ready is the Congress for the changed politics? This question has been answered many times till now. But this question is such that whenever elections come, its relevance will arise. The Election Commission has announced the dates for assembly elections in the three states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland. At the same time, elections are to be held in Karnataka, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Mizoram this year. It is being said that assembly elections may also be held in Jammu and Kashmir this year. Then next year in 2024 Lok Sabha elections will be held. For this, the Congress party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi took out Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. As the name suggests – the Congress and especially Rahul Gandhi claim that the BJP rule is dominated by hatred, which has widened the gap between different sections of the country, hence the need to unite them. But the same Rahul Gandhi, when he reaches Delhi during his visit, says that he did not see hatred anywhere in the country. Think, Rahul Gandhi himself is defying Rahul Gandhi’s claim. Even BJP is saying that there is no hatred anywhere. However, the Congress does not hesitate to spoil the social harmony of the country by chanting hatred-hatred to serve its political interests.Jodo Bharat or Jodo Congress Yatra?
As such, Bharat Jodo Yatra is to present Rahul Gandhi as a serious leader and to make the party strong by infusing enthusiasm among Congress leaders and workers. But during the journey many things happened contrary to both these purposes. Rahul Gandhi presented the claim of his serious personality by growing his beard, but by telling the population in rupees and associating cold with fear, he himself lightened this claim. Local Congress leader in Gujarat refused to translate Rahul Gandhi’s speech and left the stage. If such incidents dealt a blow to Rahul Gandhi’s image-building efforts, surely BJP must have been smiling the most. Similarly, the BJP continued to take a jibe at the Bharat Jodo Yatra, saying that Rahul Gandhi should take out the Congress Jodo Yatra. Bharat Jodo Yatra was going on when 26 leaders left the Congress before the elections in Himachal Pradesh. Recently, the Bharat Jodo Yatra had started from Punjab that the big leader there and former Finance Minister Manpreet Badal left the Congress.rahul gandhi anti hindu remarks, Opinion: Has Congress started preparing BJP's victory pitch in 2024 Lok Sabha elections? - is congress again started playing on bjp pitch before 9 assembly elections and 2024 general election
With whom did Rahul meet? questions will arise
Now it is a matter of making Congress strong. It goes without saying that the strength of a party is judged by the public support it receives. To what extent the policies of the Congress party can attract the voters, it will decide the success of this oldest party of the country in the elections. How successful Rahul Gandhi, Congress party and its leaders are in understanding the public mood can be gauged from their activities and their statements. During the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi met Rijil Makkutty, who was accused of slaughtering a calf and had a mass feast, met the priest George Ponnaiah, who abused India and Hindus, brought along Swara Bhaskar and all those who But he continues to be accused of being anti-Hindu, anti-nationalist sentiment and champion of Muslim appeasement. noise on one side, silence on the other
Rahul Gandhi himself was a great attacker on Hindutva. He continued to attack the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Vinayak Damodar Savarkar (Veer Savarkar) with the harshest attacks, but did not say a word on the growing fanaticism among Muslims, anti-national organizations like the Popular Front of India (PFI). When the necks of eight innocent Hindus are beheaded in the Pangbar dispute, open threats are given to people to be cut off, many Muslim religious leaders and Muslim leaders, including Ajmer Sharif Dargah, appeal for violence and boycott of Hindus openly. If slogans of separation are raised, then keeping silence on all these incidents and claiming that RSS is a shop of hatred, then who would believe that Rahul Gandhi really wants social-communal harmony, his aim is not just to pursue a political agenda! This only reinforces the belief of the Congress, which is deeply involved in Muslim appeasement, and this only strengthens the claim of the BJP. On one hand Rahul Gandhi says that his neck will have to be chopped off to take him to the RSS office, on the other hand eight necks have been chopped off and he is silent.

rahul gandhi anti hindu remarks, Opinion: Has Congress started preparing BJP's victory pitch in 2024 Lok Sabha elections? - is congress again started playing on bjp pitch before 9 assembly elections and 2024 general electionWhat is the truth behind the slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ on Bharat Jodo Yatra? Police took first action in the case

Social harmony and ground reality
BJP has been accusing Rahul Gandhi of dividing Hindus. Rahul Gandhi’s statement that ‘India is a country of ascetics, not of priests’ is being considered as an indirect attack on Brahmins. A section alleges that Rahul Gandhi is conspiring to divide Hindus into castes on the basis of the divide and rule policy of the British. Rahul Gandhi spoke nonsense even while mentioning demonetisation and GST. He said that the Narendra Modi government has attacked the power of Lakshmi and the power of Durga. Think, what has demonetisation-GST got to do with Lakshmi and Durga? Well, Rahul Gandhi is so concerned about social harmony, then why has he kept silent on the controversy arising out of defaming Ramcharitmanas and Lord Ram? Bihar’s Education Minister Chandrashekhar Yadav made cheap remarks on Ramcharitmanas and the Congress party is also involved in the same government. Is it not the responsibility of the Congress to clarify its position on this dispute? Nationalism just won’t work
Imagine, Rahul Gandhi refused to unfurl the tricolor at Lal Chowk in Srinagar. Why? He said that hoisting the flag at Lal Chowk has been included in BJP’s old agenda, so he will not hoist the tricolor there. The BJP had hoisted the flag at Lal Chowk for the first time in the 1990s to challenge the terrorists. Is it also wrong to challenge terrorists? Granted this is the agenda, so is it wrong? Didn’t Rahul Gandhi hoist the flag at Lal Chowk to appease the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir who are pro-Pakistan and anti-India? When Bharat Jodo Yatra reached Khargone in Madhya Pradesh, there were allegations that slogans of Pakistan Zindabad were raised in the procession. A case has also been registered against unknown people in this matter.

Himachal’s debt of 75 thousand crores, government treasury empty… Industry Minister Harshvardhan Chauhan raised his hand

Congress surrounded by near and dear ones on economic policy
The economic policies of the parties are also a big weapon to woo the public. The Congress party is supporting the old pension scheme for ex-servicemen. In the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections, the party promised that it would implement the old pension scheme after coming to power. While Montek Singh Ahluwalia, who was the chairman of the Planning Commission in the UPA government headed by him, and former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan are calling it a subversive step. Now even the new Congress government of Himachal Pradesh has realized that the promise of the old pension scheme is going to cost it dearly. Himachal Industries Minister Harshvardhan Chauhan has recently said that the economic condition of the state is very bad. He said that there is no money in the government treasury and on top of that there is a debt of 75 thousand crore rupees. The liability of government employees alone is Rs 11,000 crore. Think, how the financial management of Himachal Pradesh is going to suffer by implementing the old pension scheme!

Apart from all this, the Supreme Court’s decision on demonetisation and the arguments of Congress leaders, the controversy over the BBC documentary on the 2002 Gujarat riots, are all issues where the Congress party’s outspokenness or silence is sending a clear message to the voters. That’s why the question is very serious whether the Congress party has started decorating the BJP’s pitch in the election environment as it has been doing earlier? Bharat Jodo Yatra of hundreds of kilometers has definitely changed the image of Rahul Gandhi to some extent, but has the Congress party and Rahul Gandhi himself been able to limit himself to the extent beyond which the BJP’s limit begins? ?
