Kumar Ketkar’s rant: ‘Global conspiracy’ that murdered Mujibur Rahman, Indira Gandhi, Bhutto wants Modi to stay in power

The Lutyen's circuit has been thriving on the patronage of the Congress dynasty and now, the prospect of that circuit being dismantled forever isn't being accepted very well by the usual suspects who were long touted as "independent journalists". 

Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Maharashtra, Kumar Ketkar was invited in an event in Pune marking the birthday celebrations of former Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Former ministers Balasaheb Thorat, former MP Rajni Patil, former MLA Mohan Joshi and other Congress leaders were also present in the event.

Speaking at the event, Ketkar enlightened the audience by revealing that Modi’s ascendancy to power is a part of a “wider global conspiracy”. He claimed that if Narendra Modi comes to power again in 2019, then India might shun its democratic roots and elections may not happen in 2024.

In fact, Ketkar even raised doubts on the occurrence of 2019 elections. “If a united opposition defeats Modi, he will be uncomfortable in transferring the power. If Modi is defeated in the elections, he will not follow the democratic process of relinquishing his position,” Ketkar said.

Strengthening his conspiracy theory, Ketkar expressed deep shock over the selection of Narendra Modi as the PM candidate by the BJP in 2014. He claimed that the selection of then CM Narendra Modi for PM candidature was rigged as Nitin Gadkari left the BJP chairmanship for Rajnath Singh, who in turn chose Modi’s candidature for PM post.

“There was a lot of pressure on Rajnath Singh to appoint Modi as BJP’s PM candidate”, said Ketkar. According to Ketkar, not the voters but the global powers were calling the shots in 2014 elections.

Citing CBI imbroglio, Rafale controversy, Haren Pandya murder case, Justice Loya dies, and Gujarat 2002 riots Ketkar said, “Modi and Amit Shah have very serious allegations against them. If the facts are revealed after the change of power, they can be punished with life imprisonment.”

If this was not enough, Kumar Ketkar even conjoined disparate tragic incidents in the past such as Bangladesh’s army chief Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s murder, Indira Gandhi’s assassination and former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Bhutto’s death in 1979 to a “global conspiracy” which also wants Modi to remain in power in India.

Without producing any evidence to back his claim, he alleged that such widespread global shenanigans have been happening in the world since the last 30-35 years.

Kumar Ketkar’s statements might seem like the ramblings of a deranged man, and one might be tempted to laugh his shenanigans off, but behind these statements what is apparent is the deep fear of not only PM Modi coming back to power, but more so, Congress losing power.

The Lutyen’s circuit has been thriving on the patronage of the Congress dynasty and now, the prospect of that circuit being dismantled forever isn’t being accepted very well by the usual suspects who were long touted as “independent journalists”.
