    NCP takes tough stand against Cong, refuses to merge

    The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) appears to have hardened its stance against the Congress, holding it responsible for the series of mistakes that resulted in the debacle in the Lok Sabha polls.
    The stage was set by former minister Praful Patel, who said, “PM Manmohan Singh’s failures cannot be overlooked.” Patel also criticised Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s advisers for the poor performance.

    Officially, spokesperson Nawab Mulik underplayed Patel’s comments as his personal view. But privately, several senior ministers admitted that the Congress failed at the level of strategy and planning. A senior NCP minister said, “We have to admit that there were two camps operating in the AICC. The tussle caused a huge damage to the image of the party and its leadership.”

    NCP president Sharad Pawar Thursday held marathon meeting with ministers to discuss the shortcomings and strengths of the UPA versus the NDA in the election campaign. The party also rejected AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh’s suggestion to merge NCP with the Congress.

    “When Pawar was in Congress, they did not recognise his strength. They did not value him. Now they ask us to merge the party by extending invitation to Pawar saheb. There is no question of merging NCP with Congress,” NCP spokesperson Nawab Mulik said. “The Congress should realise the NCP’s strength and know we have our own independent identity.”

    ***********************************************************************

    The rout of the UPA has made all very prickly.

    But all are shying away to tell the truth as to why they were wiped out.

    Victory has many father, but defeat has none goes the saying.

    However, in the case of the UPA, they have ''unproved'' the maxim.

    Defeat does have not only a mother, but also a son!

    Sooner, they realise that and admit it, sooner will the rise like the phoenix!

    It is also time for the Congress to stop its arrogance and come down to Mother Earth. They are no longer a political party as per the law. It is just a ''recognised organisation'', having not reached the requisite figure of 53.

    And let this remark of the NCP resound in their ear - “When Pawar was in Congress, they did not recognise his strength. They did not value him. Now they ask us to merge the party by extending invitation to Pawar saheb. There is no question of merging NCP with Congress,”

    The Congress must acquire some humility.

    India is not Congress and Congress is not India. The sooner they learn, the better for them.
