United Progressive Alliance (UPA) was in power for ten years, it could never crackdown on BJP.
The recent CBI raid on Himachal Pradesh's serving chief minister Virbhadra Singh's residence, is just an example.
It is well-known that without official 'go-ahead' from the Centre, such raids on a serving CM can't take place at all, in India. The agencies work under centre.
Even CBI officers who were probing Godhra case were known to be soft on Modi. When you run government, you have the power but you need to exercise it.
BJP and RSS leaders were scared when right-wing terror modules were caught.
Yet, it was Congress that seemed fearful to take action against Sangh leaders and NIA took years to even investigate and file charge-sheets. Convictions couldn't take place and BJP government took seat in Delhi.
Now the case are being weakened. The Congress has always shown this kind of approach while dealing with the right-wing, and now it is facing existential crisis. Today, the result is that party is reduced to 40 seats.
If you have to fight RSS, show some courage. Will they learn now? No, it doesn't seem so. Congress doesn't have the courage and conviction to do it.
In Karnataka, it cowers in front of Ram Sene and other Hindutva groups.
In fact, either it is the communal situation in Mangalore in Karnataka or the ban on Sanatan Sanstha, it (Congress) has always been exposed.
It can't take on right-wing forces and the right-wing elements that are active within the party. It is time for Rahul Gandhi and Congress to realise that there is no scope for such a party that functions in such a manner.
