Congress in jilted lover mode: Whines in Bollywood style after a disgruntled Scindia dumps them

A day later, the whining from Congress still continues. Taking their very-filmy meltdown a notch further, they are now crying over how the 'traitor' broke their 'trust'.

Jyotiraditya Scindia had finally resigned from Congress after over a year of speculations and sidelining. As is usual with the Congress, internal feud, nepotism and lack of leadership in the Congress are being blamed for it. Scindia’s displeasure was evident right after he was denied the CM’s chair and his resignation, for many political watchers, was not surprising.

Even Congress stalwarts like Natwar Singh, many senior journalists and commentators have opined that Scindia’s resignation was only a matter of time. The feud in MP congress between the Scindia faction and Kamal Nath faction was out there for everyone to see. Scindia was regarded by many as the more deserving candidate for the CM’s chair.

Scindia going incommunicado was reported in media on 9 March. Congress leader Digvijay Singh had even claimed that they are not able to speak to Scindia because he had ‘Swine Flu’. Scindia had met with PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and finally announced his resignation publicly.

Like a petty jilted lover, Congress went ahead and ‘expelled’ Scindia from the party, after he had resigned. Just like a miffed jilted lover exclaims ‘I dumped her first’ after being rejected.

Congress leaders and office bearers too had launched soap opera style attacks on Scindia soon after his resignation. They had called him traitor, selfish, shameless, and many more things. They even dragged his family into it, ignoring that Scindia’s father had been one of their tallest leaders.

Then Congress supporters and IT cell workers descended upon Scindia’s Wikipedia page. They tried vandalising his page, calling him a traitor, coward, comedian, power-hungry and whatnot

With Scindia, over 22 Congress MLAs resigned. It is not clear what is more shocking for Congress, that a chunk of their MLAs has resigned following the footsteps of a senior party leader, or that someone has just ‘dared’ to refuse to be a Gandhi family slave.

A day later, the whining from Congress still continues. Taking their very-filmy meltdown a notch further, they are now crying over how the ‘traitor’ broke their ‘trust’.

The official handle of the Madhya Pradesh Congress has shared a dramatic image of broken ‘Trust’ with a text announcing how they ‘made’ Scindia. They have claimed that in Scindia’s 18-year-old political career, they had ‘made’ him an MP for 3 terms, a Union minister twice, and made him general secretary and campaign head too. Yet, he broke their trust.

What Congress does not add here is how the UP Congress general secretary post was specially crafted for Scindia after denying him the CM’s post in MP. As Congress was facing an existential crisis in UP, Scindia was made the in-charge, along with Priyanka Gandhi, the congress princess with zero election wins, and zero political credentials to lead the party. Probably they thought that ‘granting’ a position on par with the princess is a benevolence bestowed upon the 3-time MP. Or maybe Congress’ idea of ‘making’ leaders is equating ‘grandmother’s nose’ with a strong political base in Madhya Pradesh and 3 Lok Sabha wins.

It is also possible that Congress’ anger and frustration over Scindia are partly due to Scindia and partly due to the growing fears about the next leader who has been ignored and sidelined in an equal manner, Sachin Pilot. Pilot comes with a similar political strength, was equally expected to be the CM of the state, holds similar political support among Congress workers and leaders in Rajasthan, had a father who was a strong Congress leader too. Not to mention another Congress leader whose ascent within the party was cut short due to sudden death.

It is also pertinent to note that like both Madhavrao Scindia and Rajesh Pilot were seen as strong Congress leaders rising to the top, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Sachin Pilot are also seen as strong ‘competitors’ for Rahul Gandhi, the prince who is slated to inherit the Congress throne.
