What lies beneath…

Rohit Sharma

As Congress clean the Ayodhya laundry in public, the blame game is once again at its high pitch. 17 years ago, BJP rose in prominence with its role in the Ram temple movement, knocking down a nondescript mosque that lay on the sight since 1528. In 1984, the party had only two seats in Parliament, in 1991, it won 119. The achievement didn’t take long to turn into the ghost of past that has been haunting the VHP-BJP combo at every elections and now at Parliament. As BJP MPs struggle with the fresh round of accusations, the Government is sitting back and having the last laugh.  Congress’s hypocrisy comes out as a shining beacon as they overstate a sensitive issue ignoring the shuddering impact it had and repercussions it could bring. The day Rahul Gandhi says Atal Bihari Vajpayee is “respectful” and speculates over the accuracy of Liberhan report indicting the senior BJP leader, is the same day another Congress MP calls Vajpayee a scoundrel in his native tongue in the Parliament session yesterday. MP Beni Prasad Verma’s usage of derogatory slang against Vajpayee is a sheer contrast to the subtle PR practice that the Gandhi scion usually indulges in.
