kaunteya, interesting thought.
but such a thing would only be possible if the congress were a political party.
it is not. it is a vehicle for the personal aggrandizement of the nehru dynasty and hangers-on.
for the dynasty to continue to rule, it is necessary to keep indians 'barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen' or the equivalent thereof for men.
therefore the congress has no interest in anything that would do the nation any good. besides, it's so far to the left that in any normal country, the congress would be considered practically the same as marxists. it's only in bizarre india that the congress is considered 'centrist'. even a mildly right-wing party like the bjp here is anointed as fascist extreme right-wing because the discourse is so skewed to the left.
i am also personally not altogether enamored of the bjp, they are just a lot better than the others on offer. the bjp had the clever thought that they'd be a faux-nehruvian party, putting on the accoutrements of right-wing-ism but being nehruvian deep down. this they demonstrated in pandering during their term, quite fruitlessly of course. they did not do the triage into three groups: a) the committed, b) the convincable, c) the hostile. they should have done that and left the hostile groups alone and not spent any time on them. the convincable were the ones they should have paid attention to. instead, they took the 'committed' for granted, and wasted their efforts trying to convince the 'hostile'.
hindu or even national interests were not well served by the bjp because it was always trying to please the hostile media and trying to demonstrate to the hostile that they were really nice guys. which is sad because they, and the RSS, are really nice guys, and so get taken advantage of. nice guys finish last, as they have shown.
even in bihar, here's my prediction: nitish kumar, in his anxiety to appease marxists and mohammedans, will start distancing himself from the bjp. more 'secular', he will be. unlike the congress, which as soon as it came to power, re-started its stalinism with renewed vigor (best example is arjun singh.)
the dynasty retainers (like natwar singh) must have minted money for them to be so servile.
terrifying thought: india is being run by vincent george, the typist with rs. 100 crore in assets. consider: manmohan singh is ignored by everyone. sonia gandhi is not exactly known for her brains. so who is the behind-the-scenes manipulator? vincent george. a lot like m o mathai, another christist from kerala, who was the svengali behind indira gandhi.
