Bhopal: Kamal Nath fails to lead by example

Congress state president Kamal Nath couldn’t walk the talk is what his letter which went viral on social media infers. In the letter, Nath cautions his party workers to desist from making any controversial remark, however, he it seems that he himself failed to lead by example.  Two days back, Nath’s video ‘cautioning’ Muslims has charged the political atmosphere in the poll bound state. The letter which surfaced on social media two days after the Nath’s controversial video is seen as a damage control exercise by the party. However, both the BJP and RSS are up in arms against the Congress.

In the video, PCC chief, is purportedly seen telling a group of Muslims to be cautious about the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) campaign and that his party will deal it with after the November 28 state Assembly polls.  In the letter dated November 8, the PCC chief had asked the party workers to refrain from making any controversial statements. ‘The party workers should not give any statement to media or in their public speech related to national security, religious matter, other sensitive issues related to court’, says the letter which vent viral on social media on Friday.

The letter further mentioned, ‘as the election date approaches the main opponent party will take to hook and crook policy against the Congress’. No one should raise any allegation against the person, until and unless they have sufficient evidence to prove it, Nath had told party workers. It had clearly warned that ‘BJP will polarize the election on communal lines and we have to fight against the rumours spread by the party’. Congress party believes in Constitution, Supreme Court, Election Commission of India and follows the instructions given by them, Nath letter said. Earlier, the party in its manifesto had even said that it would put a ban on the government servants to participate in RSS programmes.
