Two potential Prime Ministerial candidates

Posted on: February 7, 2014

Madhya Pradesh may be lagging behind in several other respects but it is far ahead of several other States in producing some of the “finest” politicians – that is, the politicians in the real sense for whom nothing else matters. The people, particularly the poor, are for them the means of playing politics and making money since the poor people hardly know how much in their name has been allocated and how much is reaching them and in what form.

Here are two gems from Madhya Pradesh in case their respective parties feel like projecting them as Prime Minister at some stage.

Congress can declare Digvijaya Singh its Prime Ministerial candidate. He has all the qualities that make him eminently eligible for the high office. He never does what he says and never says what he intends to do. He can be secular, deeply religious, pro-Muslim or pro-Hindutva as the occasion demands. He can carry off big corruption without getting his name directly associated with the deed. He will train into corruption the officers who have aptitude and ability. He can manage CBI, Lokayukta and judges at various levels. Most important, BJP leaders will whine or bark only after consulting him.

Multiply by 100 the qualities of Digvijaya Singh and you have Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who can be BJP’s ‘ideal’ Prime Ministerial candidate. He can roll out untruths and half-truths with such rapidity that one cannot but marvel at the speed. Digvijaya Singh looks a novice before him in matters of corruption. The astounding ground on which the Dumper Scam case against him and his wife was dumped shows that Lokayukta and special judge are like members of his outhouse staff. CBI conveniently failed to notice the tampering of evidence by the topmost police officials and Medico-Legal Institute Director in the Shehla Masood murder case and did not even question those about whose illegal activities Shehla Masood had sought information through RTI just before her murder. As for the Opposition Congress, the less said the better. Ever wondered why Digvijaya Singh’s name was deleted from the list of accused in the Treasure Island scam case or why Suresh Pachouri had kept himself  distanced from the Dumper Scam case or why Kantilal Bhuria had taken so long to react when the Income-Tax raids had exposed the rackets of Dilip Suryavanshi and Sudhir Sharma?

Value of propaganda

Adolf Hitler believed in the use of propaganda as an integral element to seizing and holding on to political power. His maxim was 'the bigger the lie, the more easily it will be believed, provided it is repeated vigorously and often enough'. (Sean Murphy in his book 'Letting the Side Down')
