The debacle of Congress Party in Gujarat was the result of its own making. Instead of trying to consolidate the gains of 2004 Lok Sabha elections by drawing support from the Left and secular parties to showcase as a credible political alternative in the state, the Congress has committed the cardinal sin of peddling ‘soft Hindutva’ by going to the extent of embracing dissident BJP leaders. The Muslims too perceived Sonia Gandhi’s maut ke saudagar comment as a vain bid for political mileage, as she did nothing to bring justice to the victims of Gujarat pogrom during 42 months of UPA rule at the Centre. It is time Congress Party did a serious introspection ahead of next parliament elections to regain its moral authority to win the hearts of the people.
