A Lesson for Congress

Readers Pulse

The voters in Uttar Pradesh have demonstrated abundant maturity in the recent assembly elections.  The Congress citadels in Amethi and Rai Bareli have crumbled due to unbridled corruption coupled with rampant anti-people policies pursued by the UPA-II government.  The Rahul charisma has failed to convince the Muslim voters as the Congress has taken them for granted time and again.  The Muslim community has become prudent enough to understand the gimmicks like reservations for minorities and the purported Sonia Gandhi’s “tear jerking” over Batla House encounter. The Muslims have not trusted Mayawati also this time, as her social engineering had hardly done anything to the community during her five-year rule. 

What is more welcome was the defeat of the BJP in Ayodhya, which shall be construed as a slap in the face of communal politics.  Samajwadi Party should live up to its promises made to the Muslims in the state, to uplift them socio-economically by creating employment opportunities. The Congress at the Centre must draw a lesson from its debacle in the U.P and strive to implement the recommendations of Rajinder Sachar Committee and Ranganath Misra Commission reports if it is seriously contemplating to win back the hearts of Muslim community in the 2014 general elections.
