BMC polls 2017 – infighting in Congress comes to the fore as Deora attack Nirupam

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Mumbai: Congress might have the best chance of winning the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation 2017 election. The Shiv Sena-BJP alliance is in tatters and both the parties are fighting against each other.

Had the Congress used the opportunity to wrest back its old bastion, it had a real possibility of doing it and beating both the saffron parties.

But Congress party is a divided house. Different leaders, instead of fighting the Shiv Sena and the BJP, are fighting protracted wars against each other and nothing seems to be going right for the grand old party of the Indian politics.

While the BJP has accused the Congress of being in some sort of tacit understanding to thwart the BJP’s chances in the election, the party in Mumbai doesn’t seem to be capable of planning anything of the kind. The disgruntled party members –depressed at the party’s prospects in the BMC election 2017 –are moving to greener pastures.

Some have become so much desperate that they moved to even All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) of Asaduddin and Akbaruddin Owaisi. Some sitting Congress corporators have joined AIMIM and other parties.

Things have become rather very frustrating for some Congress leaders and its workers. Congress leader and ex-MP Milind Deora, who so far has stayed away from any controversy, has expressed his displeasure to party’s high command in a private message over the public opinion that is being created against him, allegedly by some people who are planting stories in local newspapers.

Reports suggest that Deora has given a piece of his mind to Nirupam who is the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) president. He told him to identify and invite leaders from Mumbai and beyond to campaign all over the city for the BMC polls as the onus for it lies solely with MRCC and Nirupam.

Reports suggest that Deora sent out a private message to Nirupam, which was marked to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, general secretary in-charge of state Mohan Prakash and senior Mumbai leaders. In it, he said that he was neither upset nor happy over his supporters being denied or given poll tickets. Apparently, what upset the former union home minister was a series of news reports that said he was doing nothing for campaigning, despite heading the campaign committee for the February 21 BMC polls. He wants the name calling to stop.

In his message, Deora said, “Unfortunately this has been happening for the past several months and does little to help the party’s prospects in Mumbai…Regardless of whether or not all of Murlibhai (Milind’s late father) and my supporters have been given tickets, in the interest of our party and as per the directions of Rahulji, I have been working sincerely and wholeheartedly right from the very beginning”.

He went on to add, “As you are aware, I have discharged my duties for the Mumbai municipal elections faithfully as chairman (of) campaign committee and have participated in and addressed all major MRCC rallies and programmess”.

Several leading party leaders had gone into shell after being neglected by Nirupam. This include Gurudas Kamat, MLA Naseem Khan and ex-CM Narayan Rane. Deora said disgruntled leaders did not bother him. “I am not keeping track of who is sulking or who wishes to campaign for the party, as this changes every day. The onus of identifying and inviting leaders from Mumbai and beyond to campaign all over the city lies solely with MRCC and you…I request you to coordinate and fulfil this (campaign) obligation so that contrary stories are not planted in the news media. Unfortunately, this has been happening for the past several months and does little to help the party’s prospects in Mumbai”.
