Congress leaders jittery due to turn of events

After the arrest of Chidambaram, some senior Congress leaders have become frightened and have begun singing praises of Modi.

P Chidambaram was the home minister in 2010 and Amit Shas was the accused in a fake encounter case. Chidambaram had sent him to jail. Now the turn of events have made Amit Shah Home Minister and Chidambaram is in jail.

Unfortunately the guest house of CBI headquarters in which Chidambaram has been kept after his arrest was inaugurated in 2011 by none other than Chidambaram himself as union minister.

P Chidambaram is guilty of corruption or not, this will be decided by the court on the basis of evidences and witnesses. However, Congress alleges that Chidambaram’s arrest is nothing but political vendetta because Chidambaram had been continuously writing against economic policies of the government hence he was given the punishment. He had also been opposing scraping of article 370.

After the arrest of Chidambaram, some senior Congress leaders have become frightened and have begun singing praises of Modi.

Following the footsteps of party colleague Jairam Ramesh, Congress leaders Abhishek Singhvi and Shashi Tharoor on Friday also began singing praises for Prime Minister. They said “demonising” Narendra Modi was “wrong” and the prime minister should be praised for doing the right things.

Modi’s acts must be judged “issue-wise, not person-wise” said Singhvi. On the other hand Tharoor said praising the prime minister for doing the right things would lend credibility to the opposition’s criticism of him.

Singhvi tweeted: “Always said demonising #Modi wrong. No only is he #PM of nation, a one way opposition actually helps him. Acts are always good, bad & indifferent—they must be judged issue wise and nt person wise. Certainly, #ujjawala scheme is only one amongst other good deeds. #Jairamramesh”

Joining Singhvi, Tharoor said, “As you know, I have argued for six years now that Narendra Modi should be praised whenever he says or does the right thing, which would add credibility to our criticisms whenever he errs. I welcome others in opposition coming around to a view for which I was excoriated at the time.”
