नेहरू के सहारे गैर-भाजपा एकता की कोशिश

 कांग्रेस पार्टी क्या जवाहर लाल नेहरू की 125 वीं जयंती के मौके पर गैर-भाजपा राजनीति का श्रीगणेश करना चाहती है? क्या देश का बिखरा विपक्ष वर्तमान हालात को देखते हुए उसके साथ आ जाएगा। बहरहाल नरेंद्र मोदी की ऑस्ट्रेलिया यात्रा की कवरेज ने कल दिल्ली में हुए समारोह को पीछे कर दिया। दिल्ली के कुछ अखबारों ने आज राहुल गांधी और प्रकाश करत की तस्वीरें छापी हैं। ममता बनर्जी भी इस समारोह में शामिल हुईं। आज के टेलीग्राफ ने इस बातो को खास महत्व दिया कि ममता ने कल आडवाणी जी और अरुण जेटली से मुलाकात भी की। अलबत्ता इंडियन एक्सप्रेस का शीर्षक है Mamata Banerjee ready to be part of ‘secular front’ to fight communal forces; but won’t lead. गौर करें आज की कतरनों पर

The current flavour of the month for the chatteratti is the 125th birth anniversary of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. For the media, ‘Breaking News’ is generating a debate on why the Congress has not invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to its international seminar on Nehru’s worldview and legacy.

The government of India had, many months ago, constituted a committee under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister to observe this event. As far as we know, with the change of the government, this committee has not been dissolved and so the Prime Minister continues to chair this panel.

Surely, this committee may work out some programmes as it sees befitting. However, every political party has the right to observe a landmark of one of its past leaders in whichever manner it may choose to do so. For instance, no one can complain why the Left parties will not be invited for any similar observation of RSS leaders like MS Golwalkar. It is a different matter that the Left will not accept such an invitation.

Birthday party politics: Decoding the guest list of Nehru conclave

by Saroj Nagi Nov 18, 2014

When the basic premise is flawed can the end result be right?

When Congress president Sonia Gandhi organised a two-day international conference on November 17-18 titled "Nehru Worldview and his Legacy: Democracy, Inclusion and Empowerment". It was attended by national leaders, some of whom have been critical of the former prime minister, and a sprinkling of world leaders, including former presidents Hamid Karzai (Afghanistan), John Kufuour(Ghana), O Obasanjo (Nigeria), Bhutan’s Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck and ex-PM Madhav Kumar Nepal (Nepal) who paid fulsome tribute to him.

The celebration of the 125th birth anniversary of India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru seemed motivated by an intent to highlight his legacy. But in reality, it appeared to be born out of the fear of an aggressive BJP and a marauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is going all out to appropriate all its national icons, ranging from Mahatma Gandhi to Nehru himself, and threaten the existence of parties in large swathes of the country.

Despite the laudable objective of taking Nehru’s message of democracy, secularism and inclusion to the people, the irony and contradictions in Sonia’s effort were all too visible, raising questions as to whether the glue of secularism that she says unites India is capable of uniting parties joined by a common threat posed by Modi and the BJP.

Here is what Sonia had to say about secularism during the conclave: “There could be no Indianness, no India, without secularism. Secularism was, and remains, more than an ideal. It is a compelling necessity for a country as diverse as India.
