TO WHAT EXTENT ONE CAN BE SHAMELESS? LOOK AT THE CONGRESS AND ASSESS

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

If you want to know as to what extent one can be shameless, look at the Congress and assess.

This party had taken lead to free India from foreign traders and to give democracy to Indians. But this party is now menacingly busy in destroying Indian democracy and to subjugate the country to another set of foreign traders.

Members of this party are not ashamed of this fall!

This party had given a Prime Minister to India in Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru who had founded and led the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) that had 118 countries of the world as its members comprising nearly two-third of the strength of United Nations and at least 55 percent of the world population united to ensure “the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries” in their “struggle against imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, Zionism and all forms of foreign aggression, occupation, domination, interference or hegemony as well as against great power and bloc politics.” But this party has now a Prime Minister in Manmohan Singh whose single point program is to push India into hegemony of US of America and to obliterate all that its founder Prime Minister had stood for.

This party had given India a Prime Minister in Lal Bahadur Sastri, who in his simple lifestyle had the most majestic leader the world could ever had and who in his small physical frame was as if the personification of the proud Himalayan Mountains. Peoples of India were seeing their collective identity in this leader, who had foiled Pakistan’s 1965 Operation Gibraltar. In the words of the US Department of State, through this adventure, “the Pakistani army (had) attempted to take Kashmir by force”. Sastri had gagged this gigantomachy by a prompt, proper and patriotic counterattack that saw every farmer of India woke up to his immortal words “Jai Jawan, Jai Kissan” emerged as a soldier in defense of the motherland. But the real villain that India vanquished in this war was the US of America whose “relations” with Pakistan “had been more consistently positive”. Its nexus with Pakistan was so nefarious that notwithstanding knowing that Pakistan “had joined the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) in 1954 and the Baghdad Pact (later renamed the Central Treaty Organization, or CENTO) in 1955 to develop its military and defensive capabilities, which were substantially weaker than those of India” it felt no qualms in saying in a US Department of State document that it had “supplied arms to Pakistan in these years”. But now this party has a Prime Minister in Manmohan Singh who has been lobbying for USA to the detriment of Indian democracy and sovereignty.

This party had given India a Prime Minister in Mrs. Indira Gandhi, who had avenged USA offences against India by standing strongly with USSR while contributing her might to further strengthening of the Non-Aligned Movement, thereby making USA isolated in world arena and shrunk into its own filthy cocoon. She had fought and won the war against Pakistan in 1971. She had made Pakistan surrender on 16th December 1971 at the summit of her success in bifurcating that country, which, pampered by USA had always been conspiring against India. She had defeated USA evil design and had stunned President Nixon and his cohort Kissinger so much by her diplomatic excellence that they had no other way than keeping on leash the ill-famed 7th fleet, which they had pressed into the sea on India’s eastern coast to assist Pakistan in its war against India. Mrs. Gandhi had elevated India’s sovereign mana by the magic she materialized in the nuclear explosion at Pokhran in 1974, which, in words of the then famous Secretary of State Henry Kissinger of USA, “was a bomb no matter how India described it”. After meeting Mrs. Gandhi and assessing the reality, he had told President Gerald Ford in 1974 that for Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Indo-US relations could improve only on a “more equal” basis and nothing less. Congress had given India such a Prime Minister. But now this party has a Prime Minister in Manmohan Singh, who crawls to serve the interests of US imperialism to the total detriment of India’s sovereign mana, so much so that in order to ensure that nuclear traders of USA get a great “bonanza” by selling their rotten nuclear reactors and hazardous nuclear waste to India, he is busy in capturing Indian MPs of uncategorized political isms through horse-trading to satisfy US President Bush in clamping on India the venomous nuke-deal formulated in USA in interest of USA!

This party had given India a Prime Minister in Rajiv Gandhi who, in spite of having lost power and in spite of being under western influence, had the guts to pull down Chandrasekhar government in stark disapproval of refueling USA Warplanes during the Golf war in 1990. But now this party has a Prime Minister in Manmohan Singh who is disregarding Indian democracy to serve the business interest of USA by pushing India into a nuke deal that is “so very clearly” designed to serve the interests of US firms in bagging a “bonanza” for the nuclear trade of America.

Of course, after “killing” of Rajiv Gandhi, the mysterious machinations of this party have pronouncedly become pro-American.

P. V. Narasimha Rao, the Prime Minister it gave India after “killing” of Rajiv Gandhi, sabotaged Indian Constitution and rendered its Preamble inconsequential by signing GATT agreement behind back of Indian Parliament to please and satisfy US of America. And, to survive in power so as to pave the way for foreign traders to grab Indian market, he resorted to horse-trading where people like Sibu Soren, whose only commodity was their political flesh, had got caught against a cost exceeding crores of Rupees to keep his bed of power active. He destroyed India, the land of dreams of innumerable martyrs and freedom fighters, the land of Mahatma Gandhi and B.R. Ambedkar, the land that every working Indian was holding to be his or her mother; and, in its place, with the help of a pack of scoundrels, he laid the foundation of the empire of exploiters under the mischief of free economy as advanced by the US of America. By wrong application of a judicial observation of the Supreme Court at a stage of a case that the CBI had from the beginning created sans the real thrust, Rao of course had escaped three years rigorous imprisonment; but he was held by Special CBI Judge Mr. Ajit Bharihoke guilty of “conspiracy” and “abatement” in making Sibu Soren & Co his political bed-partners. Despite set free, he shall remain forever a black spot on Indian democracy and people will always remember that he was sentenced to three years’ RI and a fine of Rs. 100,000 being convicted for having committed offences under Section 120b of the Indian Penal Code (criminal conspiracy) read with Sections 7, 12, 13(2) and 13(1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act as well as substantive offences under Section 12 for abetment to the crime of bribery. Rao had committed this offence against the country in order only to remain in power so that USA interests could be best served by imperialism replacing socialism as thrust of India. The Constitution of India in its Preamble was giving the direction for building up the country as a Socialist Republic. For imperialism this was the invincible hurdle. There was no scope to change the Preamble, because the Constitution of India has made it clear that any Article thereof may be amended except the Preamble. Rao and his cohorts, who were more eager to serve the interests of USA, had resorted to tricks of subterfuge and had succeeded in rendering the Preamble inconsequential by steering the country to its opposite direction, i.e. “free economy” in terms of imperialism. And, to do this, his government, lacking majority in Lok Sabha, was not competent. He had, therefore, indulged in horse-trading that eventually had gathered a nomenclature as JMM Bribery. This treachery of Rao had embarrassed the Congress party so much that the party had officially tried to distance itself from Rao. The then official spokesman of Congress, Ajit Jogi, in a statement following the judgment had put forth the party version in these words: “In response to the judgment handed down by the special court against Shri P V Narasimha Rao, at the outset the Congress party would like to reaffirm our esteem for the independence of the Indian judiciary. As a political party we are committed to the rule of law. Therefore we are duty-bound to respect the verdict of the court. Doubtless Shri P V Narasimha Rao has the right to appeal. Doubtless he will invoke that right. The judicial process will continue and the law will take its course.” So, officially, at least on records, Congress had distanced itself from Rao who had thrived in power by bribing Sibu Soren and his members of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha. But now again this party has a Prime Minister in Manmohan Singh, who with his background of being the principal architect of subterfuge against Indian Constitution as finance minister of Rao, is busy in same sort of horse-trading again with the same Sibu Soren & Co to continue in power so that USA would gain the pleasure of bagging the “bonanza” for her nuclear traders!

Congressmen are shamelessly silent!
