Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani to join Congress on Sep 28


New Delhi, Sep 25 (IANS): Former JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar along with independent Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani will join Congress on September 28, sources close to the CPI leader and Mevani have confirmed.

The Congress has decided to make it a high profile induction with presence of senior leader Rahul Gandhi during the joining of both the leaders. The day coincides with the birth anniversary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

While both the leaders have switched off their cell phones and only phones of those close to them are working.

Both the leaders had met Rahul Gandhi recently and sources say that talks have been finalised between these leaders and the Congress party. The Congress wants to rope in these two leaders ahead of assembly polls and particularly Mevani before Gujarat polls for their oratory and crowd pulling capabilities.

Mevani is an independent MLA in Gujarat and has won election with the support of the Congress. The trio of Alpesh Thakor, Hardik Patel and Mevani was with the Congress in 2017 elections when Congress did put up a good show but could not win elections and now Congress wants to rope in Mevani ahead of polls while Alpesh has joined the BJP.

Sources in the Congress say that he has been meeting Rahul Gandhi in the past and the offer to join the party has been pending since the last Lok Sabha polls.

Sources also said that during the talks in the past, Kanhaiya Kumar had emphasised on having his own team to work in Bihar in order to start a movement and then gradually take it to the national level.

The Congress in Bihar in the recent Assembly polls was almost routed. It could manage to win just 19 seats out of 70 seats it contested in alliance with the RJD and its performance was considered one of the reasons for the defeat of the grand alliance.

    Kumar and Mevani are not grass root leaders. There joining being touted as a great event clearly exposes the weakness of the Congress. The party wanting to bring in youth to their side should start from bottom and not the failed youth leaders of yesterday years. Congress is a party which refuses to learn on it's own as well as when being taught by it's own G23 senior leaders.

    We want educated grass root leaders not uneducated grassroot chaiwala leaders who can never understand governance, democracy and administration with teleprompters for speeches. It’s much better to have educated leaders than with a party having stolen MLAs by operation Kamala, EVMs and from resort politics. BTW, we don’t need anything to learn from you. It’s because we go by the constitution and we don’t want to learn anything against the constitution.

    If someone can beat Modi on his own turf, it's KK. He's belongs to the majority community, has genuine educational qualifications from the same university as our FM does, has fantastic oratory skills and above all not scared of facing media. The only shortcoming with the opposition is, none can afford the luxury of high priced PR team that only someone in power can afford and that makes world of a difference.

    It’s meaningless to compete with any party which is against the constitution. As long as country is ruled strictly as per the constitution swapping is a healthy endeavour. AAP is the best political party for india since independence. No party in history of independent india can come close for any credit as AAP has performed. In this respect I don’t mind a healthy opposition in this regard provided they point out the genuine draw back in the party which I am sure the party is ready to look into it but no media speculations and smear campaign.

    All Patriotic Indians and those who love our country should join the Congress and all such like minded parties. We the people of India should ensure that Never Again should we give a single party Majority at the centre. Coalition Govt at the centre will ensure checks and balances and will be more responsive to the needs and Aspirations of the common man unlike the BJP Govt which is only for Crony Capitalists.
