- Two young faces Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani will join Congress
- Congress will try to infiltrate the youth with the help of these young leaders
- Rahul Gandhi’s thinking behind the inclusion of both the young faces
Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani, the brightest youth leader in the country and two young faces who raised their voice against BJP and Sangh, are going to join Congress on Tuesday. The biggest concern of the Congress, which is continuously losing ground in the country, is that it also has a huge shortage of leaders with a large base. In such a situation, it is believed that due to the arrival of these two leaders, the team of people who connect with the people and hold their identity and hold among them will increase.
Ideology of fearlessness against Sangh and BJP
In the current era, Rahul Gandhi is such a face of the opposition, who is constantly challenging PM Modi, BJP and Sangh directly. Recently, in a party program, he had also said in one of his messages that those who fearlessly have the courage to directly confront the BJP-Sangh, their place should be in the Congress. He told those who left his party that those who are afraid of him can leave the Congress. They will not be stopped. But while stating the Congress ideology of standing boldly and without fear against the Sangh-BJP, he had said that such people who are outside the Congress, they should be brought inside the Congress. In such a situation, behind the inclusion of faces like Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani, the same thinking of Congress and Rahul Gandhi is visible.
Kanhaiya has always been an attacker on Sangh and BJP
Kanhaiya Kumar has been vocal against the policies of BJP and Sangh. A young Congress leader said that in today’s era, where most have laid down arms against PM Modi, BJP and Sangh, Kanhaiya has been talking directly to PM Modi and the Sangh. Fighting continuously against them. At the same time, Jignesh, who represents the Dalit section, has also been openly opposing the BJP government in Gujarat. It is being said in Congress that Rahul is busy in making his new team. In such a situation, he wants to add those people in this team, who appear close to the Congress on the basis of ideology.
try to connect youth
Through these leaders, the Congress also wants to connect itself with the youth somewhere. Actually, Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani are a firebrand face in themselves. Kanhaiya has a huge fan following across the country, especially among the youth. In this regard, Amrish Ranjan Pandey, the National Secretary of Youth Congress and coming from Bihar, said that Kanhaiya is a student youth leader who is heard all over the country. People come not in Bihar but across the country to listen to him. He talks about the common man, so connects with people easily. They are educated people, they put forward everything in a logical way, which appeals to the people. Apart from this, he has a different craze of his own among the youth.
Congress will use Kanhaiya all over the country
In view of these qualities of Kanhaiya, Congress would like to use Kanhaiya in the whole country in the coming days. It is noteworthy that the list of leaders coming within the party from student politics and youth politics has been long in the Congress. Faces like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Ashok Gehlot, Ambika Soni, Mukul Wasnik, Bhupendra Singh Hooda, Ramesh Chenithalla, Gurdas Kamat, Tariq Anwar, Ajay Maken, Randeep Surjewala, Rajiv Satav emerged from student politics and youth politics in the Congress party. appeared. But with time, there was a shortage of grassroot leaders and young faces. At the same time, the Congress’s connect with the youth also diminished. In such a situation, to reunite the youth, Congress wants to take along young faces, who have a hold on the ground.
Message to people leaving the party
By connecting these youth, Congress wants to give a message to its opponents, critics and those who have left the party recently or whose departure is discussed. Recently, young faces like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasad and Sushmita Dev parted ways from the Congress. All these leaders at one time were members of Rahul Gandhi’s youth team. After the departure of the youth, it was said that the youth are leaving the Congress because they do not see any future of their own in the Congress. In such a situation, Congress would like to send a message to people like Kanhaiya and Jignesh that the youth is still believing in Congress and its ideology.
To strengthen Congress in Bihar
Through Kanhaiya, Congress will try to strengthen its hold in Bihar. In fact, the ground base of the Congress in Bihar is almost on the verge of extinction. The party and organization is very weak there. Other parties have been continuously making a dent in the Congress. In such a situation, Kanhaiya Kumar, who has a ground hold of his own, can be helpful for the Congress there. It is being said that the eyes of the Congress are on those areas where the Left still has influence. Coming from Left background and ideology, Kanhaiya can play an important role in finding land for Congress in such seats.
Look at Gujarat too
With the help of Jignesh, the Congress is eyeing Gujarat, where elections are to be held next year. It is noteworthy that in the last Gujarat elections, Jignesh was one of the three young faces who, along with the Congress, challenged the BJP. Apart from these, there was Patidar leader Hardik Patel and OBC face Alpesh Thakor. However, Jignesh did not join the Congress then and contested as an independent, while Patel and Thakor joined the Congress. By taking Jignesh along, the Congress will try to give a signal to the Dalits. After making Charanjit Singh Channi the Dalit CM in Punjab, by inducting Jignesh into the Congress, the Congress wants to give a signal to its Dalit vote bank, which has been with it for a long time across the country. Dalits constitute about seven per cent in Gujarat. The Congress strategy is also seen as crucial to the political ambitions of the Aam Aadmi Party in Gujarat, which is trying to establish its foothold there. AAP’s vote bank also largely depends on Dalits.
