It’s clear the Congress has but to study its lesson. Whereas its high Management continues to be attempting to kind out the Ashok Gehlot versus Sachin Pilot battle in Rajasthan, an identical battle between two Congress leaders is out within the open in Punjab. Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Rajya Sabha MP Pratap Singh Bajwa are at conflict.
The issue started with the deaths associated to the consumption of hooch final week and the problem was raised by Bajwa in a letter to Singh. However when requested at a press convention, Singh was dismissive and stated he by no means took cognisance of what Bajwa wrote.
The rivalry between the 2 dates approach again to when Bajwa was the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief and Singh insisted that he be eliminated. Bajwa was changed by Singh’s alternative in 2016 and was given a Rajya Sabha seat as compensation. Issues have since remained uneasy and as within the case of Rajasthan, right here too no try was made to kind out the fights or pressure between the 2 leaders.
Within the newest transfer that has made issues worse, the Punjab authorities on Saturday withdrew safety to Bajwa on the grounds that he has no safety menace. Bajwa was given safety by the state authorities again in 1980 when terrorism was at its peak. However now he has been disadvantaged of this additionally on grounds that he has safety supplied by the central authorities. This safety was supplied by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) dispensation.
When it was not too long ago eliminated by the central authorities, the chief of Congress in Rajya Sabha wrote a letter to House Minister Amit Shah, and it was. In response to Bajwa, no particular favours have been requested for from the Centre.
“I had spoken brazenly in opposition to the failure of the administration in Punjab and improper functioning of CM Amarinder Singh,” stated Bajwa on Saturday. :Clearly, in his ordinary method, he needed to resort to hitting under the belt by withdrawing my safety and exposing my entire family to threat.”
This newest confrontation has solely highlighted once more that with Delhi turning a blind eye to issues in states and letting issues be, it solely additional weakens the get together and erodes the facility of the Gandhis. The Congress has already misplaced many leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Pradyut Deb Barman, and Pilot is getting ready to quitting as properly. The wake-up name has not been heard approach too usually.
