Due to racism and severe inferiority complex towards ‘white race’ India has lost its confidence to be a ‘great power’ as it was during the Muslim rule for over 400 years. Sonia Gandhi a white Italian citizen was chosen as the chairperson of the Congress party’s elected lawmakers on 1st June 2019 in capital Delhi. Sonia Maino (Ghandi) born on 9 December 1946 (age 72 years), in Lusiana, Italy to Parents, Stefano Maino, Paola Maino and has Siblings: Anushka Maino, Nadia Maino. She never studied at University of Cambridge but attended a short English language course in city of Cambridge but to satisfy Indian inferiority complex she is presented as if she studied at University of Cambridge. Its like me going to Rome and claim having dinner with the Pope.
Out of over billion population congress party could not find a local leader. It was M A Jinnah who refused to accept Lord Mountbatten as joint Governor General of Pakistan but Indian leadership accepted him as Governor General in 1947.
I asked Indian High commissioner to United Kingdom H.E. Renendra Sen, at London School Economics (LSE): “Your Excellency Indian want to be supper power but you had three wars with Pakistan, one war with China, border dispute with Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan. The only country you have friendly relations is Mauritius? He replied to me: ‘This is not a fair question’. BJP adviser Professor Gautam Sen was moderating the seminar at LSE.
Muslim empires in past 1400 years lasted longer due to the policy of merit of talent not on color and religions. This is now called HSMP Visa (highly skilled migrant program) used by Canada, USA, Australia and others to drain out the best brains from the world.
Sonia Ghandi’s name was proposed by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and supported by all the lawmakers.
“Congratulations to Smt Sonia Gandhi on being elected Leader of the Congress parliamentary party. Under her leadership, the Congress will prove to be a strong and effective opposition party, that will fight to defend the Constitution of India,” Congress party president, Sonia Gandhi’s son Rahul Gandhi, wrote on twitter.
Rahul Gandhi has offered to step down as the party chief, but so far the party has refused to accept his decision.
The position of Leader of Congress was occupied by party veteran Mallikarjun Kharge in the previous parliament. Kharge, however, lost his seat during the recent elections.
In the recently held elections, the Congress party only bagged 52 seats. The party is short of three members that would qualify it for the post of the Leader of the opposition in the parliament.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said his party will not stake claim to Leader of opposition in parliament since it does not have the required numbers.
BJP under the leadership of Narendra Modi registered a landslide victory by winning 303 seats at its own, and together with its allies for National Democratic Alliance (NDA) it has a strength of 353 lawmakers out of the total 543 in the Indian parliament.
On the other hand Prime Minister Modi will take Indian to further break ups due to his racist mentality and over confidence and reliance on arms dealers and war mongers US and Israel. They will decide when to arm the over heated over 13 separatist movements going on in India. Some Indian experts have admitted to me that: ‘it was a mistake to help create Bangladesh and break Pakistan’.
