Then it made the mistake of treating citizens like idiots. Instead of presenting a clear, firm authoritative explanation that was half plausible, it let loose on the airwaves Digvijaya Singh, who went on making one unbelievable claim after the other. One can dismiss his rantings. But they have become symptomatic of the way the Congress functions. They reveal how it continues to undermine the state. "

Fourth, there is the old RSS canard. The Congress’s use of the RSS card reveals its own bankruptcy. For, in a way it is admitting that it now has nothing to offer by way of an agenda, programme, argument. All it can draw upon is the hope that residual fears of the RSS will somehow mobilise support. It is also dangerously misreading the national mood. Sure, the vacuum in politics has given room for all kinds of elements. But at this moment it is the Congress that seems to be itching to play the communal card: taint the anti-corruption movement with the politics of Hindutva. To its credit, much of civil society has seen through this patent nonsense. The Congress also seems to be forgetting that it has always been the RSS’s best friend. Like in the 1970s, the fatal combination of a moral vacuum, arbitrary use of state power and the free publicity that Congress leaders give to the RSS will do more to legitimise it than anything that Baba Ramdev does. Just as civil society was beginning to overreach, the Congress made them look so good again.'

OVER TO SECU BROTHERS WHO SURVIVE ON PASSING ON EVERY THING TO RSS .

Ghai:  "The Congress’s use of the RSS card reveals its own bankruptcy"

I agree. Venkat also made a similar post. For every charge against the Congress, the standard response is that people making the charges either belong to RSS or play the RSS game unwittingly.

The argument is fast losing its potency-if at all it had any to begin with. People will openly then say that it is better to be a RSS guy than theives like the COngress people. Congress and its allies are bunch of looters anyways.

From the article

"Sure, the vacuum in politics has given room for all kinds of elements. But at this moment it is the Congress that seems to be itching to play the communal card: taint the anti-corruption movement with the politics of Hindutva. To its credit, much of civil society has seen through this patent nonsense."

The remaining civil society members who have not seen through this patent nonsense pollute this board with their troll, masking themselves as liberals.

Ganesan,

>>  the standard response is that people making the charges either belong to RSS or play the RSS game unwittingly.

Didn't your heroes in America do the same to the Communists? If a group, whether it be the RSS or the Communists, is identified as evil, it is fair game to link it to every anti-government activity. In this case though the link was right on the dot!

You yourself admitted the folly. But this strawman argument will not take Congress anywhere. When they Digvijay kind of leader in their rank, they don't need enemies.

"The UPA government continues to defy all norms of rationality, morality, commonsense and good judgement."

Exactly. Excellent article by Mehta.

"First, no one claims responsibility for anything (“the party had nothing to do with it”). "

It is amusing to see the headline in media that Congress and Sonia are uncomfortable with Government actions. It is a very a smart cunning way to disown the mess up. If government would have done something good, Sonia would be first one to claim the credit.

Excellent. Great work! The CON DIENASTY is exposed thoroughly by Mr. Mehta!

So the pathetic and gutless empty heads follow McCarthyism! WOW! What a surprise! You thing that is right on the dot! You must be a genius! The SCUM DIE-nasty will be ready to give you crores of siphoned money to start an NGO and call any one who opposes the ITALIAN scums as "RSS". Good luck!

@ Anwaar 

"RSS is my heart's work. My dear young men, don't be disturbed by uncharitable comments of interested persons. Look ahead! Go ahead! The country is standing in need of your services" - Field Marshal K M Cariappa

"The allegations against RSS of violence and hatred against Muslims are wholly false. Muslims should learn the lesson of mutual love, cooperation and organization from RSS" - Dr Zakir Hussain, Former President of India

@ All those people who call RSS as the murderer of Mahatma

On January 15, 2000, a daily, The Statesman, carried a story about the RSS by A G Noorani, which depicted the RSS as the killer of Gandhi. Subsequently the Delhi unit of the RSS filed a criminal case of defamation against author of the article A G Noorani along with the cartoonist and the Managing Director of the publishing house. When two of the accused did not respond to the Court summons, non-bailable warrants were issued in their name by the Court. On February 25, 2002, Noorani wrote an unconditional apology to the court in which he regretted writing the defamatory article against the RSS. On March 3, 2002, 'The Statesman' also published an apology regretting the publication of the said article.

Our Political Parties Congress,BJP,Maya ,Mamta,Jaya,,Commies all play the following Chua Billi Games :

Chuha Billi se darta hai,
Billi Kutte se darti hai,
Kutta Aadmi se darta hai,
Aadmi Biwi se darta hai,

Aur Biwi Chuhhe se darti hai!!!

This fear psychosis result in muddying the Political Process .Hence the Political parties in quest of Vote patronize Ram DevsI , Ms are innocents, Azam Garh Terrorists are innocent boys,Batala House encounter fake, Karkare was killed by Hindu Right Wingers not by the Lashkar's Kasab, 26/11 RSS ki Sajish --All this for the Votes

.And when they refuse to toe the script then make an example of them by teaching a lesson. Indira did with Bhinderawale, Rajiv did with LTTE and latest one is Ram Dev.

These aberrations have proved very costly to the Political Parties and to the Nation also but Politicians go on playing their Cat Mouse Games .

There seems to be a divergence in understanding between the Italian masters and their Indian slaves like Manmohan,Kapil Sibal,Chidambaram.There should be yet another committee headed by Digvijay Singh to interpret what exactly the masters said.Digvijay who knows neither English nor Italian,but only the masters' mind will know what to convey.
