Noted historian Ramachandra Guha gave vent to his frustration on the fake Gandhi family by bitterly criticizing the dynasty scion, Rahul. He surprised all his fellow liberals by branding Rahul as a fifth-generation dynast. Though he labeled the dynasty scion as a ‘decent and well-mannered fellow’, he opined that young India does not want a fifth-generation dynast who is incapable of leading the Congress party.
He dubbed the Congress party as the ‘great party of the freedom movement’ and lamented the fact that it is reduced to a family firm. He even schooled the Malayalees by asserting that they made a grave mistake of electing Rahul and if they repeat the mistake in 2024, they will end up handing over an advantage to Narendra Modi.
He could not hide his admiration for Modi by confessing that, unlike Rahul, Modi is a self-made man. He, perhaps for the first time in his life, talked some sense by acknowledging the fact that Modi is an incredibly hardworking man who never takes holidays in Europe.
Many, especially the left-liberal brigade, who are busy peddling lies and misinformation to stoke unrest in the country in the aftermath of the enactment of CAA, wondered why Guha suddenly spoke against the dynasty.
It is important to note that Guha, a bête noire of Modi and BJP, has been peddling his fake and twisted history to heap abuse on Hindu nationalists for long. It is indeed surprising to see his sudden outburst against the fake Gandhi family, whom he admires the most.
The reason behind the outburst could be that he is frustrated with the ever-increasing popularity of the BJP and Modi, especially after the enactment of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the ensuing Jihadist violence that went on for weeks. He appears to be not at all happy with Congress Party headed by Rahul and its inability to counter the incumbent government.
