‘Liberals’ troll Jyotiraditya Scindia for daring to go against the party stand to root for India on Article 370

No sooner did Scindia showed some courage to extend support to something that was pro India and against the party's stand, the 'liberals', who champion free will in their spare time, descended upon his timeline to question him whether he is also joining the BJP.

Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has done the unthinkable. He has dared to go against the party stand on Article 370. Last evening, he tweeted that he supports the move of government of India which fully integrates Jammu and Kashmir into India.

No sooner did Scindia showed some courage to extend support to something that was pro India and against the party’s stand, the ‘liberals’, who champion free will in their spare time, descended upon his timeline to question him whether he is also joining the BJP.

According to this columnist, Scindia supports dilution of Article 370 because he was ‘miffed’ that Kamal Nath became the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh.

This was also echoed by other self-proclaimed ‘liberals’.

Media troll who equated Dalits to animals, also trolled Scindia and called his family a ‘British stooge’.

More ‘liberal’ journalists also joined in.

Since stripping down of Article 370 in Kashmir, Congress, along with other Opposition parties has maintained that it is against the move. While most members of the Congress including ex-president, Rahul Gandhi has been toeing the Pakistani line and speaking against the move there are few who have gone against their party’s stand to bat for this bold and pathbreaking decision taken by Modi led NDA government.

Senior Congress leader Deepender Hooda who extended his support to stripping down of Article 370 saying that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and such a move will be beneficial to Kashmiris. His support had also come with riders that such a move should have been made by taking other political parties into confidence.

Another senior Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi, a close aide of former Congress President and currently UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, too went against the party’s stand and welcomed the move. Congress’ Rae Bareli MLA Aditi Singh, too, welcomed the move.

Moreover, Congress’ chief whip Bhubaneswar Kalita resigned from Rajya Sabha yesterday because he was upset over Congress’ stand to oppose Centre’s move to dilute Article 370. He stated that Congress’ stand on this issue was “against the people’s feelings” and that the party seemed “hell-bent on political suicide.”
