  • In episode 236 of Cut The Clutter, Shekhar Gupta tells you why it was inevitable that Sonia Gandhi would return as head of the Congress and how, over the decades, the tight control of the Nehru-Gandhis over the party meant that it barely tolerated any other dynasty from flourishing

    How different are the legacies of the presidents of the other parties ? The truth is that Presidents of all the parties have been appointees of the powers that be !
    Legacy of right wing zealots of the Congress would have brought us earlier to these fascist days !

    Thanks for putting things in perspective with the focus on the long past. History always provides the perspective to the present much clearly thus cutting the clutter. Many of our biggest worry now is from whither will emerge a good opposition which is important for democracy to function properly. Lest we degenerate to something else.

    A nice rundown of the congress history, errr Nehru-Gandhi infamous history. However, Mr. Shekhar Gupta did not inform us on the most crucial point as to wherefrom this dynasty derives its undemocratic tyrannical power. This point is all the more noteworthy because this undemocratic nefarious power remained in existence for many years even while a scared Sonia did not want it. You can't solve a problem if you do not diagnose it. So, one more time, please tell us how this power revolves around Gandhis who are demonstrably incompetent.

    Actually, Congress was controlled/strongly influenced by left wing thinkers and their strangle hold on Congress is the problem. Manmohan Singh was great for them till he decided to lean towards US. And the best way to discredit anyone is to call him anti poor and anti minorities. Some presidents you mentioned were not right wingers but were not good enough left wingers for them.

    Whether all of the congress presidents mentioned by you were not HONOURED by Congress governments from 1947 to 2014 by releasing postal stamps with their images? What else anybody can expect from INC which is owned and managed by Nehru-Gandhi_Vadera family and coherts,private ltd? The premium awards like Bharat Ratna were appropriated by Nehru,Indira and Rajiv, and the latest aspirants are living now., but power has gone from hand. Ironically some faces appeared in coins, but neityher the stamps nor the coins are not available today.Even in Google some images themselves of some past leaserd are not there, so they used postal stamps or paintings/caricatures to fill the slots.

  • KRV Naick
    KRV Naick 8 दिन पहले

    Congress party will claim that they honured all their past presidents by releasing Postal stamps with their images.Some were given even chance to appear in coins, with many current political leaders who were accommodated to get support for INC when they lacked it.
    So BJP can not claim that only they are honouring Indias freedom fighters!
    But, it is a fact that most of the states do not teach Indian History to the children, and such things stopped perhaps in 1950s/60s as INC itself started grading the past leaders as useful and useless !

    I guess that your after the Congress as you have no option to talk about the BJP and if you did you would be in big trouble. I understand your position. But don't get me wrong I would suggest instead of talking about the Congress which is not in power please talk about the BJP I mean from the Jang sangh days when the British were here and their contribution to the country and compare it to the Congress since 1947 and all the work they have done since then. Would request u to please make a special segment. Today the economy is in doldrums when the BJP is in power talk about that not what is the past of the Congress no one wants to know that. Be a responsible journalist. My humble request. Please don't take sides just cause you will get nailed by the present govt. I respected you till the first term of the govt but you have changed sides I guess will not follow the print as I thought it was a channel that questions the govt but I see it differently today.
