Forcing MLAs to sign affidavits of loyalty is a sign of Congress’s frustration: Hari Om

The May 25 signing of the loyalty affidavits by the MLAs of the Congress Party in West Bengal brings out the fascist mindset prevalent in the party, said Jammu for India (JFI) convener, Prof Hari Om, here today in a written statement. Such gestures of total obeisance to those who control the party have been a common occurrence in parties controlled by dictators with totalitarian outlook, he said, and added that it is a known fact that all through its history the Congress betrayed absence of true democratic culture and behaved as a party subservient to an individual. From loyalty
to Mahatma Gandhi to Jawaharlal Nehru to Indira Gandhi to Rajiv Gandhi to the total subservience to AICC president Sonia Gandhi and her son and AICC vice- president Rahul Gandhi, the Congress’ political behaviour has been only cosmetically democratic.
The political culture in the Congress party is a culture where its cadres have to conform to the diktats of the dictator who controls it at a particular time, said Prof Hari Om, adding that loyalty oaths and expressions in words and deeds is a compulsory attitude which Congress workers have to imbibe and demonstrate from time to time in case they have to survive and rise in the party. There is not doubt that in the present times under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi the party is becoming more brazenly authoritarian than in the past, asserted Prof Hari Om. Prof Hari Om asked the Jammu-based Congress leaders to snap ties with the Sonia-controlled Congress and join forces which are genuinely democratic and nationalistic and asserted that the Congress is not a party of Indians. Prof Hari Om also urged the Election Commission of India to derecognize the Congress party to send a clear massage to all that India is a democratic country and added that the BJP is also not a boon for the country as it has been flirting with undesirable elements to remain in power.
