Congress and BJP; Two sides of the same coin
When Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee founded the Jan Sangh in 1951, he did so on the basis of ideology. He was a member of the cabinet of the National Government under the leadership of Shri Jawaharlal Nehru formed in 1947. But he had ideological differences with Pandit Nehru, especially on the problem of Kashmir. So he resigned as a cabinet minister and led the foundation of the Jan Sangh. The Jan Sangh was a party with communal colour and had close relationship with the RSS. It was a party with specific ideology nurturing the interest of the majority community and looking down upon the minorities specially Muslims. It had its own ideals, dreams and ideologies.
This position continued till 1980 when the Jan Sangh was dissolved and the BJP was formed. There was only change of name. The leadership ideology and programmes remained the same, though Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee tried to bring in some moderate change in it. Subsequently, he condemned the demolition the Babri Masjid and Godhara Riots. It began to move closer to the Congress in economic and foreign policy matters. But there was no basic change in the form of the BJP. It maintained its speciality, not because of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee but done to Sh L. K. Advani.
But as soon as Mr. Narendra Modi was declared as the Prime Ministerial candidate of the BJP before 2014 General Election, a strong wind of change to begin to blow. First, Mr. Narendra Modi got rid of old starworts like L. K. Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi. Sh. A. B. Vajpayee had already left the stage due to serious illness. Thus, Mr Modi consolidated his position within the party. After being elected the PM, he broke into the Congress Party and began to adopt its policies. Not only this, he snatched its top leaders like Sardar Patel, Mahatma Gandhi, Lokmaya Tilak, Madan Mohan Malviya and Subhash Chandra Bose etc. by claiming that were National Leaders and they left the congress at one or other stage of their life. The present leadership of the Congress tried to save its legacy but it could not do so because its top leadership is so much busy in defending itself from the allegations of being involved in various scams that it has neither time nor strong will to save its legacy. Instead of saving its glorious legacy and defending the architect of modern India it. Nehru and Mrs. Indira Gandhi from defaming attacks of the BJP it seems to have struck deal with the BJP under which instead of discussing commoner’s problems like drought and BJP’s failure to deal with them and finding their solutions scams are being discussed and thus the tax Payers money and Parliaments time and energy are being wasted. Instead of raising issues concerning people’s basic need, the Congress is defending its leaders Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. The BJP is continuing its blackmailing and arm twisting and thus diverting people’s attention from real problems.
Thus both the BJP and the Congress are helping each other indirectly. Both are neglecting their primary duty of roving people from hunger and thirst and thus are two sides of the same coin.
