Thackeray Reuters He had also warned that "not a single brick will be allowed to be placed for the bullet train in Mumbai" until the infrastructure of local railways was made better The MNS leader who

https://tco/OAUvihuL2f — Anon GoI WP Edits (@AnonGoIWPEdits) June 26 2015 It’s déjà vu time again One more disastrous electoral performance and talks are on about a leadership change in the Congress For a change no one is talking about Priyanka Gandhi replacing party president Sonia Gandhi For Congressmen it has to be Rahul Gandhi Whatever his showing as the party’s de facto leader they have to swim or sink with him Whether the party bites the bullet is another matter though There’s a growing realisation that two power centres at the top one revolving around Sonia and the other around Rahul are proving disastrous for the party The feeling in the party is that the old guard which has been resisting the Congress vice president’s efforts to revamp the Congress by inducting new blood and ideas for some time now and has been making no contribution of its own to the party’s cause has to vacate space now Most of them are associated with the current party president Sonia’s exit if it happens would automatically signal the end of the old guard Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi PTI The Congress already has a young guard ready to take over There’s no dearth of talent in the ranks and it only needs to be promoted well Like his father late Rajiv Gandhi Rahul can afford to have an entirely new team to work with Political parties need to re-invent themselves at regular intervals as a matter of necessity not of choice The party could take cue from the BJP revival and growth under Narendra Modi That almost the whole set of earlier leaders including the likes of LK Advani has been put in cold storage ever since Modi arrived on the scene and there has been no damage to the party should serve as eye-opener for the Congress The Assam results were a sharp reminder that the party needed to revive in the states It cannot continue with leaders who are disconnected from the ground lost the pulse of the people and are unamenable to change With three more years to go for the general elections if the party doesn’t change now it would not be ever Rahul has sufficient experience on the ground by now and despite electoral defeats at disturbing frequency he has not shown any tendency to run away from the next fight He is more mature in his public conduct and no more comes across as a sheltered kid unwilling to move out of his mother’s shadows The party also needs to occupy the political space it has vacated over the years through continuous neglect of the organisation While the BJP has expanded its footprint phenomenally to be in the polar position of national polity the real threat for the Congress is from the newer entrants In the states such as Uttar Pradesh Bihar West Bengal Andhra Pradesh and Odisha regional parties have already snatched its core support bases In Delhi the Aam Aadmi Party has eaten into its vote bases and threatens to do so in Punjab and Goa too Politics abhors a vacuum If the party does not act fast then someone else would fill that To reclaim its political relevance the party requires strong decisive leadership Rahul for many Congress seniors may not be the best person to lead the party but it’s a situation of no choice The party won’t hold together without the Gandhi adhesive binding it and a clear command and control system The BJP which has been dismissive of him so far should be worried In its two years in power the Modi government has exposed several chinks Despite the pro-poor noise it has been making it’s still perceived to be a party serving the interest of the rich It has not come good on its promise of providing jobs and the Hindutva groups have already opened up too many areas of conflict within the society The Congress can make capital of the disruptive and divisive character of the BJP

Observer Research Foundationexpress@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsPublished: August 23 2014 2:00 am We must not forget that India had suspended peace talks with Pakistan in the past as well Related News By Kalvakuntla Kavitha In the run-up to the Lok Sabha election Prime Minister Narendra Modi often took swipes at the UPA government for its Pakistan policy He criticised the Congress and blamed its soft attitude towards Pakistan for cross-border tension Initially though the PM surprised his critics by extending an invitation to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to attend his swearing-in The bonhomie did not stop there Sharif and Modi also exchanged sarees for their ageing mothers It was hailed as a landmark moment in the troubled history of the India-Pakistan relationship After this to many “hardliner” Modi looked much more like a “soft” leader But even before completing 100 days as prime minister the Modi-led BJP government has done a U-turn Angry with the Pakistan high commissioner for meeting Kashmiri separatist leaders before foreign secretary level talks the NDA government has cancelled all bilateral talks with Pakistan with a stern warning that it should either “talk to separatist leaders or the Indian government” It is good that the Centre has realised that exchanging sarees and receiving bullets and bombs from Pakistan can’t go hand in hand The BJP government was also accused of facilitating journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik’s meeting with terrorist Hafiz Saeed in Pakistan Even though Vaidik denied that either government played a role in setting up the meeting he failed to provide a convincing answer Before the dramatic developments earlier this week there was no difference between the previous UPA government’s policy towards Pakistan and that of the BJP government Stung by criticism the Centre seems to have woken up Still the sequence of events exposes the duplicity and confused foreign policy of the Modi administration The government erred in going out of its way to please Pakistan Did we not know that Pakistan is not a reliable and trustworthy neighbour In the name of “peace talks” Pakistan has been fooling successive Indian governments foreign policy mandarins and the international community Pakistan’s institutional support to terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of India is an established fact As a member of Parliament I believe that the ritualistic drama of holding periodical “peace” talks with Pakistan must end These talks have yielded nothing in the last few decades and are unlikely to do so My party the Telangana Rashtra Samiti with its 11 members in Parliament will support the strong stand taken by the prime minister against Pakistan Like many Indians we too feel that India’s generosity is being seen as weakness by Pakistan People who have made peace talks with Pakistan a business are understandably disappointed with the government’s sudden decision to put an end to dialogue There have been hundreds of peace missions and candlelight vigils over decades Sadly none prevented Pakistan from allowing or worse sponsoring anti-India terror campaigns Pro-Pakistan elements and so-called peace-nicks who have made their careers out of the dialogue with Pakistan are still urging the government to continue the talks but this is not going to help the Indian people Also important is the role of Kashmiri separatists As the word “separatists” suggests they don’t want Kashmir to remain with India They argue that there is no solution to the Kashmir issue within the framework of the Indian Constitution Why should the government entertain such elements We must not forget that India had suspended peace talks with Pakistan in the past as well After some time both nations went back to the table with no results Hopefully this will not happen again Within and outside Parliament the TRS will back the Modi-led NDA government when it comes to the national interest Instead of nitpicking all political parties must back the government if the government wants to teach a fitting lesson to Pakistan The writer is a TRS Lok Sabha MP from
