The Supreme Court called ‘Hindutva’ simply a way of life. A way of life that has absorbed many in a spirit of live and let live. But as in the past the next few months you can expect our MSM to demonise Hindutva as evil. You will hear stuff like “Hindutva will destroy India”. You will hear “Hindutva is not secular”.
When the Congress party held a ceremony to upgrade Rahul Gandhi to Vice President in January 2013 they had also ferried 300 media slaves to Jaipur. They were put up in hotels, wined and dined at the party’s expense and they delivered the results. They cried when RahulG spoke. I just call it the “Badminton speech”. None of the cronies in the well-fed MSM even asked why RahulG was elevated or what practical difference his elevation makes considering that he was No.2 with or without any titles. That is the smaller part though. The slaves naturally didn’t even touch upon a more important question. What exactly had RahulG accomplished in 9 years of his political career that was worthy of an elevation? His political resume so far has zero accomplishments, poor parliamentary attendance and a long list of moronic utterances. In contrast when the BJP appointed some new national management team the entire MSM broke out in ‘Swine flu’.
People often ask me why I watch this or that channel, especially NDTV. The best answer to that question is what a prominent political observer told me: “If I want to get some idea of the Congress thinking and hints on their strategy or tactics then watching NDTV is a good exercise”. No one has the credit of evolving RahulG as much as NDTV. So what happened after the BJP announced their new National Executive or new management, whichever you want to call it? Take a look at the image from NDTV’s debate by Barkha Dutt on March 31. The usual people from BJP and there’s Shahid Siddiqui, Swapan Dasgupta and, of course, Kumar Ketkar. The title of the programme is the screen of the agenda-direction of the Congress: “Team BJP = Team Modi”. Siddiqui is nobody’s baby anymore after his interview of Modi sometime back. SwapanD said Modi is “Primus Inter Pares” and concluded his usual simple point. I think even Ketkar understood that bit. That brings us to the two Congress panellists; Barkha Dutt and Kumar Ketkar. And both of them earnestly dropped hints on the Congress tactic for coming months. Naturally, who else!
First, let’s deal with the evolver BD. Among many appointments, she mostly talked about Varun Gandhi, appointed general secretary and then had a discussion with Uma Bharati who has been appointed VP. These two aren’t the only ones, there are a dozen more secretaries and vice presidents but why attention on these two? Hindutva! BD suggests that because one of the VP of the party is Uma Bharati the BJP had returned to the Hindutva agenda. That is the line the Congress is going to take. Never mind that the party has never claimed to have strayed from Hindutva. Next BD also implies that because Uma Bharati has been inducted there may be a signal to the return of what she calls “Mandir politics”. In the next few weeks you are going to hear Ayodhya and Mandir politics quite frequently from the MSM. Get ready!
The rest of the decisions didn’t matter much to BD. That’s it for her and for other news channels too. So that leaves us with the great editor and political analyst: Kumar Ketkar. Let me quote some gems from him first (not verbatim quotes, his statements are in blue):
The BJP has been bulldozed into inducting Modi into the parliamentary board.
Hmm! Let’s translate the same statement for the Congress. KK would have said: “RahulG has been elevated to VP position due to an overwhelming demand from cabinet ministers and party workers”. It is no secret that Modi energises the cadres and other leaders but also masses who see him as a PM candidate. One could smell burnt steak in the NDTV studio.
The BJP does not look like a national party that it claims to be as there is no representation from the East, South or NE in the new management.
I’m not sure KK was analysing a political development or a cultural programme on “Folk dances of India”. Prakash Javdekar reeled off names from various parts of India to reject KK’s argument but that was not really necessary. You know, we should forgive KK, after all he’s an “editor”. For the record, Mayawati’s BSP which is largely a single-state party is recognised as a “National party” by the Election Commission. This is small trivia and should help inconvenient nonsense for the likes of KK.
India has a centrist party in Congress, there are Communist parties and there is space for a Rightwing “Secular” party.
Congress is a Centrist party? Any sincere political analyst will tell you that the Congress is nothing more than another Communist party extension. We’ll have to forgive KK again. He’s an “editor”. Nobody reminded him who inserted the word “socialist” into our Constitution. Now the clincher here is: “Rightwing Secular” party. That is rehashing the Congress tactic that BJP is not secular. In other words the media is on a red alert to start screaming Modi is not secular, is anti-minority and BJP is “communal” again because of the media’s imaginary Hindutva.
Can the BJP call itself a modern Rightwing party? Even Centrist Congress has Rightwing of its own.
I suppose there is no way that the BJP which was formed 125 years ago under evil Hindus can anyway be a modern party in any sense. Can it? Of course, the Congress and Commies who came into existence after RahulG’s birth in 1970 are truly the modern parties for KK. The Congress which honestly elects its president and office bearers by nominations and a democratic vote is a modern party for KK. The Congress which has a president for life is obviously the “modern party” for KK. Yeah… we get it!
It is nice deception by people like KK, BD, NDTV and all other slaves in the MSM to even ask the stupid question if Modi had bulldozed the party or if “Team BJP is now Team Modi”. It doesn’t occur to them that they are slaves to a party that has been a “One-Gandhi” party since Jurassic Park. KK wants representation from all parts of India? Ah well, we can ask Narendra Modi to go around the country claiming he’s a Kashmiri, he’s a Brahmin, he’s a Dalit, he’s an OBC and he’s a Gujarati. Which is exactly what some great “leaders” do and are applauded by our media, aren’t they? Whether they like it or not, Narendra Modi has reached where he has and has earned his position by sheer performance and not by being a lucky sperm. Performance? Well, that doesn’t count for NDTV or any other media outlet.
Here is something that will shock you. Not once in the entire programme did any of Modi’s critics, including BD, discuss “Muslims”. I guess they are now bamboozled with the fact that the whole theory of “Muslims are against Modi” has fallen apart. It is one more hoax that has crumbled. Muslims who are ideologically against BJP and Modi will remain so regardless of any political development. By elevating Modi to major posts and by implying he is their PM candidate the party has also sent a signal to “imaginary” members of a non-existent NDA. This also disturbs the media and they are going to lose sleep over it.
The awful truth is that in recent times the greatest governance and development work has come from Non-Congress states. KK’s stupid notions notwithstanding, modern ideology is one of governance and development. His imaginary implication that there is no Rightwing secular party is a spin from the Congress text book. It is only worn out, termite-infested parties who are still stuck in the old habits of doles and quotas. The MSM is going to declare an all-out war against some imaginary “Hindutva” agenda and paint some BJP management members as bringing in “Mandir politics”. The agenda was carried forward by KK and Saba Naqvi on TimesNow last night. Predictable!
