Rajiv Gandhi used it when he came under attack on the Bofors gun corruption charges Sonia and Rahul will continue whining and wailing during the year 2016 on that very day, Congress Darshan, a party journal published and edited by Sanjay Nirupam, Mumbai Regional Congress Committee head, in an anonymous article, had shaken the basis on which the Congress superstructure stood. It had ripped apart the party’s most shining icon Jawaharlal Nehru’s policies on Kashmir, Tibet and China. The article had projected Sardar Patel as a more sagacious, wise leader than Nehru. It had also linked the Congress’s president father, as a soldier in Mussolini’s army, to Italian fascism. The writer had hit the party where it hurt the most. And there was a clever method in the manner the focus of attack was chosen: Nehru’s legacy, Sardar Patel’s wisdom over Nehru’s impulsive actions and Sonia’s, as well as her family’s past, something the party very zealously guards and keeps under wraps. As the year winds to a close, the image of whining and wailing by Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi flashes through one’s mind. His political discourse was dominated by persistent complaints and grievances throughout 2015. Voicing grievances to show that the mother-son duo is under attack by the government is a clever political strategy to win sympathy of the people. Rajiv Gandhi used it when he came under attack on the Bofors gun corruption charges. Like his mother, the Congress and family retainers equated any criticism of Rajiv Gandhi as attack not on him as an individual, a leader or as a Prime Minister but an attack on India’s integrity. The country is not safe except in the hands of the Nehru-Gandhi family becomes Congress’s party refrain when the family faces attack.
