Another Gandhi and another ‘inner voice’: Reality or a Farce?

“My decision to not contest is personal. I will only change it when I feel from within I should.” - Priyanka Gandhi
Circa 2004. The Congress rode to power at the centre riding high on the anti-incumbency wave. The BJP-led NDA had lost and it was time for the Congress to take charge. The whole country’s eyes were glued to 10, Janpath because the speculations were rife that the late Indira Gandhi’s foreign Bahu would become India’s prime minister. The issue of Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin was playing itself out on the streets. But the fact of the matter was the Congress had the number and had Sonia Gandhi wanted to become prime minister, nothing could have stopped her.

But in a dramatic move befitting a Greek tragedy, she announced that her “inner voice” had asked her to stay away from the trappings of power, that she would like to heed to her “inner voice” and hence she would not take oath as India’s prime minister much to the relief of the entire country.

The rest is history. Sonia Gandhi had outsmarted and outwitted all her opponents. She had not taken oath as India’s prime minister but instead she had installed her puppet as prime minister and kept all the powers within her firmly clenched fist. The latest book by the former PMO advisor Sanjay Baru has spilled the beans on the modus operandi of the Gandhi family when the polling for the 16th Lok Sabha election is underway.

Circa 2014. Rahul Gandhi’s leadership lacks that oomph factor. He has failed to galvanise his party’s rank and file to rise up in arms to counter the Modi wave. As a result, the Congress is headed towards its worst ever defeat in the on-going 16th Lok Sabha election. The Congress is looking for some quick fix solutions to salvage its pride. It has diagnosed the ills that plague the party but it wants to resort to the symptomatic relief instead of the permanent cure.

Though the Gandhi surname has run its course and the young Gandhis are no longer able to attract voters, there are murmurs and rumours emanating from the Congress’ camp that Priyanka Gandhi was ready to take on the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from Varanasi.

Would Priyanka Gandhi’s entry into the electoral politics have made any difference to its party’s electoral fortunes? Narendra Modi has flummoxed the Congress’ think tank and it finds itself on the back-foot against the Modi tsunami. Priyanka Gandhi has in the past campaigned for her party, mother and her sibling Rahul Gandhi but she has not fought any elections. Though it is too late now for Priyanka Gandhi to don her saviour’s hat to lift the Congress out of gloom and doom, Priyanka Gandhi has again set the alarm bells ringing by referring to her “inner voice”.

Priyanka Gandhi will take a call to contest the elections when she feels like contesting them from within. She has cleverly paraphrased inner voice as feelings from within. The Indian voter has all the reasons to be worried about when Priyanka Gandhi talks about paying attention to her feelings from within. As we have seen in the past decade that Sonia Gandhi’s inner voice has brought untold miseries and economic doom upon the country while she wielded enormous power over the PMO without any responsibilities.

The country must not allow the same thing to happen as far as Priyanka Gandhi is concerned. The Gandhi family’s thirst for power will never get quenched. But it wants power without any responsibilities. It has positioned itself as an extra constitutional authority that does not augur well for the Indian democracy and its far reaching repercussions are there for all to see.

That said, Narendra Modi is an outsider to Lutyens Delhi who is threatening to challenge the status quo after the election results are announced. Hopefully Priyanka Gandhi’s feelings from within will have no role to play this time around. But even in 2019 the Indian voters must remember to reject the inner voices and feelings from within of sanctimonious leaders hook, line and sinker. For, that is extremely necessary to keep our democracy vibrant, functioning and effective.

    NO GOONDAS AND CRIMINALS LIKE VAJPAYEE, MODI AND SONIA-RAHUL; WORSHIP “INSANELY HANDSOME” AVATAR OF SHIVA, SATISH CHANDRA

    (April 9 ‘14) Azam Khan says India’s Muslim soldiers won the Kargil war for India. I have said for years that the Kargil war was started by Pakistan’s army chief Musharraf on the CIA’s orders to make Vajpayee win the election that was pending after he had lost a vote of confidence as prime minister; that Hindu-Muslim conflict before 1947 was created and managed by the Intelligence Bureau leading to the partition of the country and its Indian and Pakistani successors (RAW & ISI which cooperated in the Kargil war & terror attacks such as the November 26, 2008 attack on Mumbai, etc.) continue to do so after 1947.

    (April 4-6 ‘14) The opinions and votes of India’s slave population suffering from mass-psychosis (below) do not matter; only nuclear weapons matter — to simultaneously destroy Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. In a letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister I referred to an act, by American Jews, that was “the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India”. In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote “Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi”. In December, 1982 I wrote to her “There was sudden, terminal, overwhelming violence against me during a seminar at Harvard University and rather similar occurrences earlier… India can expect sudden, annihilatory violence … with nuclear weapons … against its population … unless it can mount a decisively superior force to stop it”. Following my advice, India’s strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme and the Centre for Advanced Technology, was started to give India victory in a nuclear war with the United States and because of my influence on her, Indira Gandhi as prime minister was assassinated by CIA-RAW and later when Rajiv Gandhi realized the truth of what I had written to her after the American invasion of Iraq which was the first Gulf War, he was also assassinated by CIA-RAW. In the past few years, I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace nuclear warheads in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities and India is now in a position to destroy the United States without being destroyed. In fact, India is in a position now to destroy the United States without itself suffering a single casualty by triggering its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. Note that Vajpayee could not have done that because of his relationship with the CIA which brought and kept him in office. The same is the case with all other Indian politicians because of their participation in the CIA’s crimes against me which the CIA can threaten to expose.

    This is what I said when asked if India is just a pawn. “Yes, it is a pawn, a slave, a society suffering from mass-psychosis. Despite the recent revelations about M. K. Gandhi being a homosexual who reveled in his “slavery with a vengeance” to the white man, who engaged in a fake ‘freedom struggle” with the British managed by the Intelligence Bureau, the entire Indian government went to his memorial on his death anniversary this January 30, 2012 to pay tribute. India is a very sick society. (I had urged that all his portraits in government offices, etc. be burned). … By saying that India is suffering from mass-psychosis, I am being generous and kind of giving it the excuse of being ill (of the several hats I wear, I am also a mental health professional) but a country of 1.2 billion people being so terrified of much smaller numbers of people from half way around the world cannot really be excused. … ” (see RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom ).

    (April 15 ‘14) Bharatiya Janata Party is a Goonda Party which chases a Goonda (Modi) instead of worshipping this Avatar who can make India the supreme military and economic power in the world immediately (see below); it must be destroyed. Regarding the BJP president’s statement about not changing the “no first use” of nuclear weapons: what these Goondas (including Goondas like K. Subrahmanyam; see ‘Offer to Me by CIA Director and K. Subrahmanyam‘: HaydenSubrahmanyamDOTblogspotDOTcom ) working for the CIA say does not matter, only what Satish Chandra says matters. I have made abundantly clear India’s plans (see below) for the first use of nuclear weapons against the United States without itself suffering a single casualty. And see what I have said below about the Goonda M. K. Gandhi.

    (April 9 ‘14) Azam Khan says India’s Muslim soldiers won the Kargil war for India. I have said for years that the Kargil war was started by Pakistan’s army chief Musharraf on the CIA’s orders to make Vajpayee win the election that was pending after he had lost a vote of confidence as prime minister; that Hindu-Muslim conflict before 1947 was created and managed by the Intelligence Bureau leading to the partition of the country and its Indian and Pakistani successors (RAW & ISI which cooperated in the Kargil war & terror attacks such as the November 26, 2008 attack on Mumbai, etc.) continue to do so after 1947.
