Kanhaiya Kumar likely to join Congress, meeting with Rahul Gandhi intensifies speculation


Daijiworld Media Network – New Delhi (MS)

New Delhi, Sep 16: The Congress which has suffered setback due to non-availability of young leaders for the past two years is likely to induct Kanhaiya Kumar, former JNU students’ union president and CPI leader, in their ranks. Kanhaiya met Rahul Gandhi and it is believed that the stage is set for his entry.

It is also learnt that senior Congress leaders are in touch with Jignesh Mevani, MLA of Gujarat. Congress had helped Mevani to win the contest in the last assembly elections by not fielding any candidate against him.

According to sources Kanhaiya is not happy with party leadership in CPI and met Rahul Gandhi. However, D Raja, general secretary of CPI said that he has no knowledge about Kanhaiya’s joining of Congress. Raja also said that Kanhaiya had taken active part in the national executive meeting of CPI which was held earlier in September.

Though no confirmation in this regard is given by Kanhaiya it is learnt that Congress is looking at Kanhaiya to play a crucial role in the politics of Bihar where the party has lost ground for the past 30 years. In the last assembly elections Congress could muster only 19 out of the 70 seats it contested.

Senior Congress members believe that the induction of Kanhaiya and Mevani will inject new faces and boost the image of the party which had four prominent youth leaders like Jitin Prasada, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Priyanka Chaturvedi and Sushmita Dev leaving in the past two years.

Some of the party leaders of Congress are not in favour of inducting Kanhaiya in the party as they believe that he will be difficult to contain considering his past record. The CPI had even censured him with disciplinary action, though of minor nature for the ruckus he created in the Patna office of the party in December last year.

The joining of Kumar, if goes through as expected, will be a boost to Congress as he can be used in campaigning for Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming elections as both SP and BSP have made it very clear that they will not unite with Congress in the elections.

    I doubt yaar. In fact Kanayaas time is up. Its a suicidal move by the Congress . As a person too he is not accepted due to his commie mindset. He was trashed to pulp by a different of 4.5lac votes in the last elections. So he is not even a vote garner. Unless and other wise he is allotted a safe constituency to win on Muslim votes for survival like RaGa,, I dont think he will even win on his own credibility.

    People by now, who is for the Country and who is ready to sell the country. Kannayaa, Minayya etc have been thoroughly exposed. So Narendra gets the vote not for his fiery speeches but what he stands for. Narendra for you may like to address him like that... Some 8% here and there. For the rest of India he is our revered PM... Narendra Damordas Modiji...who will be re elected as PM of this nation and who true to his principles will quit power when he turns 75 leaving behind his succesor and everything .... Kahaan tumhara kunnayya yaar... Woh bhi Modiji ke aage... See realistic dreams at least !! And whatever I have written here, take and note it down for your future reference.

    Whatever the party, Dr. Kanhaiya Kumar should be in the Parliament to take up issues related to the Poor and weaker sections of the Society. It is also sure that the truth he speaks will hurt his own party members. Because the ruling parties may change but corruption will continue.

Add to it another anti kanaiah old horse faction. We were hoping comfortable NDA victory in 2024. But now we can expect BJP alone crossing the finishing line.

    UP has a population that is equal to many big countries. Every country in Africa, Europe, and South America has fewer people than Uttar Pradesh. So UP needs a population Law badly. Yogiji is the only person who can bring sanity here. other parties don't even speak about this fearing they will lose vote of their favorite people.

    First of all the Congress needs to elect a President so that concrete decisions can be taken for the benefit of the party. At present the situation is precarious. There are a lot of youngsters willing to join the party and progress. But it is like an organisation without a leader.

    Spread out across India, it is hard to replace Gandhi fly, simply because they are only one who could take some decision for the party and the followers will listen. BJP will not let any other leader in congress to thrive. Shashi Tharoor and P.C. Chidambarum, though did not had much following, but could have led the party. Realizing their potential, BJP got them discredited with fake cases. So, for next chain leaders in Cong it is hard to survive the onslaught of raids and discrediting through media chnls. So, the central leadership issue shall continue as it is going on for now, it seems.

    Cong needs fire brand leaders who can open up the eye's of citizens who are in a kind of trance. It is dangerous for the democracy where people just follow blindly PM Modi without any questioning or fact check. Kanhaiya Kumar has the clean credentials, courage and leadership abilities to counter the dirt thrown on them by adversaries. He could be good asset for Congress. He will however certain to be haunted by Bhakths and BJP, with fake narratives, cooked up stories, photo editings and law enforcement raids.
