For the first time since 2014, it seems that the BJP has the Congress truly by the scruff of the neck. The last 10 days have been an absolute nightmare for the Dynasty…setback upon setback has sent the Congress reeling.
First came the #IshratFile and #MalegaonTwist news, which blew away whatever credibility the Congress had left in matters of national security. But hey, the Congress ecosystem worked overtime to keep the reporting in these two cases under wraps and while Times Now and NewsX cried themselves hoarse, the ecosystem mostly managed to keep the news out of the rest of mass media.
Then, came Agusta Westland. With an Italian Court naming the Queen, the news was too big to bury. On top of that it was the week that Parliament resumed its sittings. And then BJP picked Swamy to go to the Rajya Sabha. Now, Manohar Parrikar is personally studying the Agusta files. From the way Parrikar takes direct jibes at Sonia Gandhi’s Italian origin, the Congress can hardly hope for leniency. And ex-IAF chief S P Tyagi has a Monday date with the CBI and ED. Ha! The media Mameluks will find it impossible to bury this story. Add to it the fact that Bofors has instant name recall everywhere in the country and the Agusta Westland story seems amazingly similar.
Finally, as if things could get any worse, came the court order to demolish Adarsh society, the towering symbol of Congress corruption.
The ecosystem is feeling the pressure and for the first time, I can feel them buckling. The panic is telling:
Whoa! Why so defensive? Shekhar Coupta is as “deep state” as you can get. If Shekhar Coupta is this worried, you can imagine the depth of the panic.
Somebody change the topic …please!!!!
In fact, the ecosystem was so desperate they started throwing anything they could lay thei hands upon, including empty shells of long discarded and used up bombs.
Arvind Kejriwal went on a diversion spree, demanding info on the PM’s degrees, threatening to gherao 7RCR and now planning a referendum for statehood to Delhi. Anything…absolutely anything to divert attention from Agusta Westland!
Dirty tricks Chief Ahmedmian Patel, who hitherto only worked from the shadows, ran around from channel to channel protesting innocence.
They even manufactured a “Rajasthan Chopper Scam” overnight:
But if you want to truly gauge the panic level in the Congress ecosystem, here is the lead story on Nehru Dynasty TV that takes everyone by surprise:
NDTV doing an “exclusive” exposing Chidambaram? Are things so desperate at HQ that they are offering Chidambaram’s wicket in exchange for a pardon for the Queen? I must say even I underestimated the potential of Agusta Westland to rattle the powers that be in Lutyens Delhi…
And THIS JUST IN: Rajdeep Sardesai has disabled his Twitter account. Make of it what you will…
