In the wake of Assembly election results and the bad track record of the Congress party in the last couple of years, the party vice-president is trying to pacify himself by blaming the ruling party for its two year achievement celebrations. It is a matter of great concern that the main opposition is losing track and talking out of contest when the situation of his own party is in a precarious position. Instead doing a world of good to the people, including farmers, Rahul is trying to wash dirty linen in public and show the wrath of his failures successively for sometime now. The only hope left to Congress is to work with Government, if the NDA gathered courage to push through reforms, rekindling hopes of landmark Goods and Services tax (GST) bill passing in parliament with majority voice vote. When NDA took over in May 2014, Congress thought that the Government will not function to the liking of people and watching the proceedings to topple it. Since the Modi government is performing well the pressure is back on Rahul to prune up the party by indulging in cheap politics. Thus Rahul is losing track and may land to quit his post for the betterment of the party sooner or later.
