Are opposition parties in India only for the sake of being ‘opposition’? Constructive and progressive are the two terms that Indian politics should have embraced from the lexicon of political science. However, if you have watched the proceedings of upper and lower houses of Indian parliament today, you must not be surprised at all. This is a usual drama that goes on at the expense of our hard-earned money. We are but the mute witness of this ‘holika’ which is provided for their entertainment every day during the different sessions of parliament to burn a huge amount of money. Don’t worry India, Congress was there to get your country ‘independent’ and rule it like the dynasts. BJP came to challenge them and other parties have also done ‘this or that thing’ and they deserve to enjoy the luxury of burning the economy of our country every day in the parliament. They have all the rights to shout like children do during the school debate. They have the right to equate our jawans’ martyrdom with the ‘alleged line-deaths’ and also give clean chits to Pakistani terror operand. On a whole, it’s disgusting; it’s shameful; it’s utterly condemnable! How could Ghulam Nabi Azad have such an audacity to show his ‘true colours’ and his parties core agenda so open?
Since the Uri attack and the follow-up by brave Indian jawans with the surgical attack, Congress party cannot hide its frustration (for some reasons well-known to the nation). However, bringing those views in public, that also from the floor of Rajya Sabha and that too by none the less than the leader of opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad… that’s so desperate an attempt to give a clean chit to the rogue nation Pakistan!
Ghulam Nabi Azad, under the garb of alleged deaths due to the note-ban, has directly attacked the Indian army. Once again, Congress has put its opinion forth to the nation that ‘WE DON’T CARE AT ALL FOR OUR ARMED FORCES’. And the nation should see it coming from the party which is not ready to give the credit of independence even to the martyrs like Bhagat Singh, Ajad and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. To me, it did not come as a shock because I know where does the Congress party stand. However, it did have an element of surprise that it comes so early.
This very apathy for the army personnel and the national sentiment has caused the party to become an ‘ineligible’ opposition due to lack of required number of seats in the election. We have to wait and watch what the future of the party is in the coming elections with such heightened display of senselessness and absurdity and also inhumanity.
