Mumbai ke Malik? Within days of joining Congress, Urmila Matondkar proclaims ‘Mumbai belongs to Congress’

Urmila Matondkar, a retired entertainer from Bollywood, joined Congress a few days ago and is all set to contest from the Mumbai North constituency in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Within days of the joining the Congress party, actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar seems to have incorporated the ‘culture of arrogance’ of Congress by proclaiming that Mumbai belonged to the Congress party.

A video has gone viral in which the yesteryear Bollywood entertainer Urmila Matondkar is heard seen declaring that Mumbai had always belonged to the Congress party and even in the future it will belong to the Congress party. Within days of joining Congress, Urmila Matondkar displayed the quintessential Congress arrogance by treating Mumbai as some sort of property that can only “belong” to Congress.

The kind of arrogance to proclaim something to be ‘jagir’ is not just limited to the Congress party. In 2017, Delhi Chief Minister had also proclaimed himself to be the “Delhi ka Malik” and had asserted by thumping his chest that he “owns Delhi” and he will “run Delhi”.

The Congress party and its leaders have a unique idea about India as they often claim that the country exists because of the party and attributes every achievement to the first family of Congress. Just a few days ago, senior Congress leader PC Chacko had hailed Gandhis as the first family of India and scorned PM Modi for being ‘negative’ towards them. Chacko had gone on to attribute everything that the country achieved in the last seventy years to the ‘planning and initiatives’ conceived by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

Taking sycophancy to next level, senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid had once said Congress chief Sonia Gandhi was a mother to all Indians. Khurshid speaking to the media had said, “Sonia Gandhi is not just Rahul Gandhi’s mother. She is also our mother, she is the mother of entire India.”
