दाता से याचक का सफर

दाता से याचक का सफर 

मनोविज्ञान का यह मान्य सिद्धांत है ,जो जितना अहंकार के शिखर पर चढ़ता है वह उतना अवसाद के महागर्त में गिरता भी है। कांग्रेस पहले  शिखर पर थी। 

कांग्रेस का अर्थ है श्रीमती सोनिया गाँधी  की कांग्रेस और भी इसका संक्षेप किया जाए तो कांग्रेस का अर्थ है श्रीमती सोनिया परिवार। 

चुनाव क्या हुए ,सारा परिदृश्य बदल गया है ,जो कभी अपने अहंकार के शिखर पर थीं वह आज अवसाद ग्रस्त होकर याचना स्तर पर आ गईं हैं। श्रीमती सोनिया गांधी राष्ट्रपति प्रणव मुखर्जी के पास गईं और मन की दीनता को छिपाते हुए कहा -देखिये आप राष्ट्रपति हैं ,माना की संविधान मुझे प्रतिपक्ष नेता का दर्ज़ा नहीं देता ,आप तो इतना कर ही सकते हैं कि मुझे लोकसभा  में प्रतिपक्ष के नेता का दर्ज़ा दिला दें। 

आप इतना तो सोच ही सकते हैं ,राष्ट्रपति उस समय क्या सोच रहे होंगें-जो कभी दाता  बनी हुई थी वह आज याचक बनकर आई है। 

१२५ वर्ष पुरानी कांग्रेस का क्या यही हश्र होना था ? अब तो सोनिया गांधी को यह मान लेना चाहिए भारतीय दृष्टि का कर्म सिद्धांत कितना अटल है ,यह बिलकुल ठीक है कि जैसे बीज बोओगे वैसी ही फसल काटोगे।  

Leader of opposition status: Sonia meets President Pranab Mukherjee

NEW DELHI: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday met President Pranab Mukherjee in the backdrop of the UPA pitching for leader of opposition status for her party in Lok Sabha. 

Sonia Gandhi, who had yesterday made a strong pitch for Congress being given the post of leader of opposition, held a meeting with party MPs in Lok Sabha in the morning. 

The meeting came after UPA MPs decided to write to Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan seeking an immediate decision on the issue. 

Congress has 44 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha. The party has already asserted that it would exercise all options to ensure a "democratically correct, logical conclusion" on the issue and has not ruled out the option of approaching the court on the matter. Sources close to Gandhi, however, said that her meeting with the President was a "courtesy call". 

Gandhi had been calling on Mukherjee regularly ever since the former finance minister in UPA II government became President in July 2012.

As Congress pushes for LoP post, Sonia Gandhi meets President Pranab

A day after she asserted that the Congress has a rightful claim over the Leader of Opposition (LoP) post in the Lok Sabha, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday met President Pranab Mukherjee.

The Congress, meanwhile, is set to hand over a letter with signatures of all the UPA MPs to speaker Sumitra Mahajan to make a combined bid for the constitutional post. Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge is expected to meet Mahajan on Wednesday. Sources confirmed Kharge has sought an appointment with the Speaker.
Though sources close to Sonia termed the meeting with the president a “routine courtesy call”, it came after the Congress president met party MPs in the Lok Sabha. Sources said Sonia and Mukherjee discussed the prevailing political situation, indicating that the LoP issue figured in the discussion. The Congress is set to argue the The Salary and Allowances of Leaders of Opposition in Parliament Act, 1977 mandates the creation of such a post.
The party has also argued that the ruling of G V Mavlankar — the first Lok Sabha Speaker — that a party should have 10 per cent of the total seats to qualify for the post does not hold good now. The LoP, the Congress insists, is an “essential part of our Parliamentary fabric” and not a matter of “subjective discretion”.
“No ruling of the Speaker can substitute or override an Act of Parliament,” the Congress has claimed. The idea behind roping in allies to sign the memorandum was to circumvent the 10 per cent argument the Speaker might offer. The Congress has argued that the party, along with its pre-poll allies, satisfies the requirement of 55 seats. The memorandum will have signatures of 44 Congress MPs, six NCP members, four from the RJD and two each from the Muslim League, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, Kerala Congress (M) and RSP.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, meanwhile, said the government would be happy to have a recognised LoP in the House like in the Rajya Sabha. He also said he regretted that even without formally staking claim, some Congress leaders were talking of going to courts on the issue.
