‘Mission- 2012’ right ahead…

Monday, January 16, 2012

Rahul Gandhi nominated Digvijay Singh, Rita Bahuguna Joshi and Pramod Tiwari as the frontline warriors for congress in Uttar Pradesh. Whereas, responsibility to provide them back-up was handed over to youths like Pradeep Jain, R.P.N Singh and Jateen Prasad. Experienced Congress leaders namely Beni Prasad Verma, Salman Khursid, Rajiv Shukla and Shri Prakash Jaiswal were given the duties to Plan strategies and maintain coordination between all.

Rahul Gandhi started doing the homework very early so as to revive Congress fortune in UP. He prepared the religion based map and convinced the Government to implement. Central cabinet was reshuffled and state minister Beni Prasad Verma was made the central minister. Salman Khurshid was given an important portfolio of being the Law Minister and giving Rajiv Shukla the post of Minister was all the part of Mission 2012. Despite the tremendous effort put by Rahul to conquer the land in Uttar Pradesh till now nothing seems to be going his way.  There is a saying thathistory repeats itself, and from what happened during Bihar state assembly elections the same situation with Congress prevails in Uttar Pradesh this time as well this truism becomes self fulfilling. Although Rahul Gandhi has been trying to control the situation but the fight for tickets and the internal dispute within the party members is wide open.

P.L. Puniya, a one time close aide of Mayawati, is attacking his fellow party men Beni Prasad Verma from within. P.L. Puniya supporters are waving the message that Beni Prasad Verma is the Agent of Samajwadi Party. The supporters are also saying that he has joined Congress in a bid for party’s loss in the upcoming election.

The comment being passed in no way seems to be favorable for the Party. The adverse effect of this was seen when Beni Prasad Verma was sitting next to Rahul Gandhi in Fulpur. P.L. Puniya supporters didn’t like this and they started fighting with Beni’s Supporters in front of Rahul Gandhi.

On the other hand Uttar Pradesh Congress President Rita Bahuguna Joshi and other eminent leader Pramod Tiwari are having a close fight on ticket allotment issue. This has led to the formation of two groups of Rita Bahuguna Joshi and Pramod Tiwari. Both the groups keep alleging each other of selling tickets for money.
The same situation is with the most honest Congress leader Rajendra Singh Gappu. Singh served the party for the last 16 years and has now left the party and joined Samajwadi Party because he got upset with an issue with Rita Bahuguna Joshi.

His initiative against Congress party is also affecting Rahul Gandhi’s mission in big ways. Rahul Gandhi’s initiative to promote student politics and to connect youth to the main stream of politics is also getting washed off.
