Is the BJP ‘match fixing’ survival of Congress by being arrogant or simply stupid?

You almost get the ridiculous but valid feeling that the BJP is ‘match fixing’ the survival of the Congress. How else can you explain such a badly timed reward to Swamy and the handing over of a weapon to the Congress ...either arrogance or stupidity.

Is the BJP ‘match fixing’ survival of Congress by being arrogant or simply stupid?

Somebody must love the Congress seeing the hordes running about the Capital. On a day when we should be worried stiff over the impending release of a rape -murder convict only because he was a juvenile at the time of crime, we spent the whole day waiting for a mother and son to resurrect their moribund political careers.

Hasn’t it struck anyone that the Gandhis are thoroughly enjoying themselves? If they had to pay for so much media time it would be in the millions and they are getting it for free.

By denying that they want no fuss and bother they have assured just that. What is the simplest of appearances in a court is now a major issue worthy of The Hague or a high profile war criminal trial. What is wrong with us that it is of such importance we keep feeding the monster?

Eighteen months down the line, they are a puny 9 per cent in the Lok Sabha and holding everyone to ransom.

Just a clutch of days ago everyone with an opinion and a platform to air it told us that the Congress was dead, like those 44 seats were a national expulsion...on your bike and out of here, you are toast.

Some toast. The media is galloping about like this was the second coming.
And if the Congress hasn’t got enough octane out of the publicity from a case that is now beginning to lose its novelty, it is simply breathtaking that Subramanian Swamy is given a top level house in Bangaluru and is upgraded to Z security status on the same day as the hearing.

Today.

Which genius in the BJP thought this was good timing when the lyrics of the political vendetta are on every Congress lip.

Talk about giving ammunition to the enemy. Why not just shoot yourself in the foot?

You almost get the ridiculous but valid feeling that the BJP is ‘match fixing’ the survival of the Congress. How else can you explain such a badly timed reward to Swamy and the handing over of a weapon to the Congress ...either arrogance or stupidity.

You might as well confess to the element of the engineering in the whole circus. You even have journalists taking sides with political parties like they had, in Faustian fashion, sold their souls to the company store.

But even though the legal first day fizzled out within three minutes of 3 pm, their appointment with the court, we are continuing to stoke the fire and give the Congress the most undeserved boost through negativity...as has been said, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

And as all hype stuns us somewhere someplace some juvenile with hormones running wild might be looking for a target because he knows not what crime he is committing.
