Liberal meltdown begins as Ajit Pawar joins hands with BJP to form government in Maharashtra

Till last evening, speculations were rife that the Sena-NCP-Congress alliance formula for Maharashtra is ready and Uddhav Thackeray will be the CM. However, the early morning surprise seems to have shocked not just the political players, but the 'secular-liberal' media too.

As a faction of NCP and the BJP pulled up a political coup in Maharashtra to form the government, the ‘neutral journalists’ and the ‘secular-liberals’ members of the Congress-backed ecosystem seems to have lost their last hope of keeping BJP out of power in Maharashtra.

With BJP ditching its former alliance partner Shiv Sena to join hands with a section of Congress ally NCP, the meltdown of the ecosystem has already begun.

Rajdeep Sardesai, the Michelangelo of Indian journalism, was the one who seemed too upset with Ajit Pawar-BJP alliance. For Rajdeep Sardesai, the newly formed alliance between Pawar and the BJP is a double blow as first of all, BJP has retained the power in Maharashtra. The second reason for Rajdeep’s agony is Congress losing out an opportunity to be in power in the state.

Taking to Twitter to vent out his frustration, Rajdeep Sardesai launched his attack on Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, insinuated that Fadnavis’ reputation as an anti-corruption crusader was at stake after joining hands with Ajit Pawar, who is alleged to be involved in a scam.

Interestingly, Rajdeep had never mentioned or tweeted regarding the issue of corruption cases against Pawar, when NCP had hinted at forming an alliance with Shiv Sena and the Congress. As Pawar has now joined hands with the BJP, the scams allegedly committed by him seems to have resurfaced in the memories of Rajdeep Sardesai.

Rajdeep Sardesai did not stop there. He soon began to deliver moral science lectures for all the political parties of Maharashtra. Sardesai lectured that BJP should never again lecture on corruption again, while the Cong should not lecture on ‘secularism’ and the Sena should not sermonise on Hindutva. He added that he did not have any moral lectures for the Pawars and NCP, as there is only ideology in politics today – ‘Opportunism’.

Swati Chaturvedi, a troll masquerading as a ‘journalist’, who was till yesterday praising NCP supremo Sharad Pawar for his ‘masterstroke’ for keeping BJP out of power in Maharashtra and teaching a lesson to Amit Shah and PM Modi, on Saturday took a U-turn to blame Pawar for the failure of Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress alliance. She claimed that Pawar betrayed Thackeray and Congress to join hands with the BJP.

Nikhil Wagle, who claims to be a ‘journalist’, also suffered a massive meltdown after Ajit Pawar and BJP came together to form the Maharashtra government. Similar to Rajdeep Sardesai, Nikhil Wagle seems to be suffering from selective amnesia as he too has suddenly remembered that Ajit Pawar has been accused of involving in an irrigation scam.

Wagle questioned Devendra Fadnavis on how could he dump his ‘morality and anti-corruption’ plank to support Ajit Pawar.

Nikhil Wagle’s frustration was evident after he attacked Prime Minister Modi as he wished success for the new BJP-Pawar coalition government in Maharashtra

The best meltdown tweet day came from none other than Vir Sanghvi, who went all the way down to narrate a story to refer Sharad Pawar as ‘poison’.

Till last evening, speculations were rife that the Sena-NCP-Congress alliance formula for Maharashtra is ready and Uddhav Thackeray will be the CM. However, the early morning surprise seems to have shocked not just the political players, but the ‘secular-liberal’ media too. As if the frustration of seeing the BJP in power again was not enough, the developments have also exposed the media’s complete clueless-ness as opposed to earlier governments where even ministerial berths were decided by lobbying journalists.
