Why is Congress displaying such arrogance? If they truly have the power, they should prove it by winning the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat. They do not deserve 40 seats, despite claiming 300. They talk about ruling the country, but it is time to put an end to their reign. Sonia and Rahul Gandhi of Congress have destroyed the INDI alliance.

These comments come from Mamata Banerjee, the founder president of the Trinamool Congress Party. It is evident from her statements that Congress and the INDI alliance are no longer on good terms. The INDI alliance has been breaking day by day.

Mamata Didi, as she is affectionately called, is very angry with Congress nowadays. Congress used to be her old party. When she is angry, she becomes fierce. Her anger is famous worldwide. People who know her say that Didi is good in many matters. She is wonderful and quite different from experienced leaders like Mayawati, Jayalalitha, and Vasundhara Raje but sometimes she went rudderless with her anger.

Mamata Didi has her own unique working style, political strategy, and diplomacy. Perhaps that is why she has been elected Chief Minister of West Bengal for the third time and is successfully navigating the complexities of the state’s politics.

However, it is concerning that Mamata Didi is prioritizing her alleged vote bank politics over national interests. This should not be the case for any national leader. She needs to sacrifice her personal interests for the greater good of politics and society. She should focus on how to fulfill those interests, which path to follow, how to behave, and how to gain the support of the common voters without resorting to manipulative tactics.

Mamata Didi is known for her versatility and ability to adapt to different situations. She can be affectionate, harsh, laugh, cry, and even scream. She is a strong leader, both fierce and compassionate but on Muslim politics, she looks totally biased.

Mamata Didi is also a disciplined and stubborn politician. Once she sets her mind on something, she does not rest until it is accomplished. This firmness & determination led her to become the Chief Minister in 2011, fulfilling a resolve she made in 1992. She challenged the then-great leader of West Bengal, Jyoti Basu, over an issue concerning a girl.

I have encountered/interviewed Mamta Didi on various political occasions since 1991 and have observed her closely. When she laughs, it is genuine. When she gets angry, it is intense. She speaks boldly and fearlessly. She is a militant leader, and her eyes reflect the pain of losing her father at a young age due to lack of proper medical treatment due to poverty.

Today, Mamata Didi is making headlines with her anti-Congress statements. She is not just appearing domineering; she is indeed dominant. She has launched a full-fledged attack on Congress. Mamata Didi has even cursed her old party. She believes that today’s Congress is not the same as the old and genuine Congress. This sentiment was echoed by BJP leader Arun Jaitley also in a speech in the Lok Sabha, in the presence of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.

Mamata Didi has challenged Congress to win the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat from BJP. She believes that Congress is not deserving of 40 seats and yet talks about winning 300 seats. Mamata Didi understands her own strengths and weaknesses, which is why she is making such critical comments. Perhaps she has decided to distance herself from any alliance and maintain her own strength, keeping all options open for future politics, similar like Bihar’s CM  Nitish Kumar.

Mamata Banerjee and Nitish Kumar share a similarity. They do not stick to their words or act on them. Both prioritize their own interests. They also have a history of association with the BJP-led NDA. Both served as ministers in the Atal government from 1998 to 2004. However, they are now united in their opposition to Congress, which seems to benefit the BJP.

Regarding Congress’ arrogance, history shows that the party has a long-standing relationship with arrogance and flattery. They struggle to understand and accept the truth.

Rahul Gandhi, often referred to as the prince of Congress, exemplifies this. His mother, Sonia Gandhi, shares a similar disposition. Both are arrogant, stubborn, and disconnected from reality. It is astonishing that despite losing 90 percent of the elections in the past decade, Congress remains steadfast in its position. They seem to be detached from the true pain and suffering of the people and lack a concrete strategy for the welfare of the common people.

At this point, we can understand these facts with parliamentary statements of Monday 5th Feb as PM Narendra Bhai Modi commented that one product should not be repeated every time for the sake of the country. He criticised Rahul Gandhi without taking his name.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed his resolute optimism on Monday, asserting that the NDA coalition would secure over 400 seats, with the BJP securing a minimum of 370 seats in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

During his address in the Lok Sabha, Modi launched a barrage of criticisms against India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, accusing him of harboring disparaging perceptions of Indians, deeming them lethargic and intellectually inferior. Modi went on to assert that opposition parties lacked the audacity to contest elections and had resigned themselves to prolonged stints on the opposition benches.

“I can discern the national sentiment, and I am confident that the NDA will secure more than 400 seats, with the BJP securing no less than 370 seats,” remarked the Prime Minister in response to the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in the Lok Sabha.

He further hinted at the impending onset of the government’s third term. “Only 100-125 days remain,” he noted, alluding to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. “This time,” Modi exclaimed, prompting BJP members to echo, “beyond 400.”

“Even Kharge ji is echoing the same sentiment,” Modi remarked, referring to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s statement in the Rajya Sabha.

“The Congress remains fixated on one family. They have consistently failed to comprehend, and will continue to fail, to grasp the aspirations and accomplishments of the people. The Congress has perpetually doubted India’s capabilities. They have always regarded themselves as rulers and diminished the people,” Modi proclaimed during his response in the Lok Sabha on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address.

Even today, Congress is surrounded by sycophants who hinder the success of Rahul Gandhi’s campaigns. Congress has suffered significant losses in elections over the past ten years due to ego and dishonesty. To survive, Congress must overcome its ego and internal conflicts and focus on working for the welfare of the common people.
