Prashant Bhushan says BJP/RSS is communal

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Prashant Bhushan made an outrageous statement on Arnab Goswami’s program on Times Now today by saying that they would welcome support from the BJP and RSS even though they were communal. Team Anna is basically a group of rabble rouse leftists — the kind if in power, would ensure that their ego-centric leftist ideologies trump development and progress with a myriad of “intellectual” arguments to back them up. If the likes of Prashant Bhushan ever had the opportunity to run this country they would ensure that the country remained poor and hooked to handouts from the World Bank/Ford Foundation. The Magsaysay award is indeed precisely reserved for such worthies. I would predict that if they start tasting success, this movement would begin to look like what we had seen with say V.P Singh — seemingly clean at the outset but would later degenerate to some bizarre anti-national cause (like the Mandal movement) of their liking.

The JP movement against the dictatorial Indira Gandhi succeeded only with the support of the RSS and the Jan Sangh. If the BJP has the slightest iota of self respect they should ask Prashant to apologize else leave him and his team of opinionated limelight seekers to grind to dust. Even if the BJP helps them out, they will be dumped in the end and there will not be even the hint of a bare nod of gratitude as is evident right now. Far from it, it is likely that the Lok Pal bodies will be loaded with the likes of Prashant Bhushan and Santosh Hegde which would happily hunt the toothless tigers like the BJP down and bask in the limelight. Team Anna does not have the vertebrate strength to simply appreciate fundamental good from wherever it may come but constantly seeks to further their pet causes while pandering to pop political correctness (like the “communal BJP” view) no matter how absurd their basis. Team Anna better clarify what their view of the BJP/RSS really is before it can be lent support by the BJP. But given the lack of realpolitik on the part of the B JP leadership at the center I think the BJP will be used and flushed by the likes of Team Anna.
