New Delhi, August 8: It is no news that Indian National Congress is facing its worst time in the country ever since its foundation in 1885. It was formed to make India British-Mukt but now is facing the fear of a Congress-Mukt India.
Many of its own acclaimed leaders have warned Congress leadership for its mistakes but the party has apparently paid no heed to them.
In the latest, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah targeted the “opposition unity” agenda and asked Congress to pay attention to the warnings of veteran leader Jairam Ramesh.
“The myth of opposition unity has been systematically shown for what it is- a chimera. It’s each 1 (one) for themselves in 2019 & 5 (five) more years 2 (to) BJP,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I hope there are people in the Grand Old Party who sit up & take note of what Jairam is saying. Dismissing his views will be shortsighted,” he added.
In an interview to PTI, Jairam Ramesh had said that his party is facing an existential crisis but is still behaving like a Sultan.
“I would say that the Congress is facing an existential crisis. It is not an electoral crisis. The party really is in deep crisis. We have to understand we are up against Mr Modi, Mr Shah. And they think differently, they act differently, and if we are not flexible in our approach, we will become irrelevant, frankly,” he said.
“The Sultanate has gone, but we behave as if we are sultans still,” he had said.
Abdullah had formed the government in Jammu and Kashmir in coallition with Congress.
