Congress having a slow death in Pondy
Since 2009 Congress is steadily declining its vote bank in Pondicherry due to faulty leadership, nepotism, corruption, feeding its own kith and kin, and lack of foresight. Leaders have failed to feel the pulse of the people.
I AM a commoner and I mix with common people. I try to feel the pulse of the people. On 27 November 2009, in my article, I had warned the Congress high command about selecting Kannan an opportunist for the Rajya Sabha seat. This will ignite anger of the people. N. Rangasamy, Chief Minister of Puducherry, was behaving in the same pattern as Karunanidhi did in Tamil Nadu. Issuing statements talking about welfare schemes but forgetting that people were not fools.
Corruption and nepotism benefit only top party functioneries like the Chinese.
Mr. Vaithialingam was made chief minister as per his wish. Vaithialingam has already proved to be a corrupt person who floated a Sri Vari Mutual Trust Fund and minted money. He had this money invested in Tamil Nadu and not in Pondy. He has given contract to his father in law who opened production unit in Tamil Nadu and supplied noon meals scheme products to Pondy.
He did not care to re-roll the Pondicherry money to Pondicherry. Thereby sending income of Pondicherry outside the state. He is an incompetent administrator. During his previous term there was a civic problem, but he cooly left Pondy to a safe place instead of facing it and trying to cool off people. As he has no knowledge of economics he had made damages to pondy economy by taking improper decisions.
Thus, the citizens of Pondicherry were unhappy with his performance. Result - Rangasamy was replaced. Narayanasami played his cool game resulting in packing off Rangasamy. This has agitated people. Narayanasamy was thinking himself as king of Pondicherry. Again purposely, he selected Vaithialingam because Mr. Narayanasamy can dictate him from Delhi forgetting that people of Pondicherry are not fools who are observing his moves.
Finally, the last blow to people's sentiment was when he hurt them by making Kannan a Rajya Sabha member. Kannan has lost his credibility. His party's falling strength did not make Narayanasamy think once. The moment he gave the seat to Kannan it was well known that he has set the down fall. Yet he did not care as he thought himself as king of Pondicherry and his supporters are there to support him.
Now Congress has been wiped out - getting only 3 seats. Also, those seats were won by persons who would have won even if they fought on an independent ticket. Most intriguing is the fact that an elite congress candidate has lost to almost a commom man who was not even christened in politics.
Does this not reflect the anger of the common people? Will congress high command wake up and make changes that will cool the anger of the people by removing all the current office bearers including Narayanasamy and definitely Kannan and bring young people on the forefront? Let's all remember that now Pondy has the highest literacy and people are watching and counting the corrupt politicians wealth increase.
