Hey, Kamla Sycophants, you who can’t stop garlanding her with the commendation “Best PM” have you realised that she has been longer now in opposition as a leader (7 years) than she was PM (5years) and that she has been the worst opposition leader this country has had; so apart from her innumerable defeats at the polls, she has done nothing to empower the party because of the pusillanimous characters she has cherry-picked.
Basic political science teaches that a leader doesn’t have to be a genius but brilliant choices may reflect some kind of intelligence on the leader’s part via the persons one chooses. An eon ago Panday brought in Wade Mark in his team – not because this fellow had any special credential or following – but because he helped colorized the image of the party. Mark has gone on to become a veteran weakling and by now should have been seen as political jetsam.
A progressive leader would long ago have jettisoned Mark and brought in somebody who could have been blooded as a future candidate. But Mark is obviously untouchable and one wonders why – especially regarding the many questionable missteps (& mispronunciations) for which Kamla is notorious.
Instead of sourcing someone from our local “intelligentsia” she picks again for the Senate, a hairdresser, I understand. That being so, any of you sycophants believe that there are plans afoot by Kamla to win any future elections with the “geniuses” she has handpicked and have you like fools cheering her on?
Sycophants, you crow from the rooftops but have you forgotten the Reshmi incident when Kamla was in government and why she was Kamla’s specially chosen baby girl? Were you happy with that bacchanal and do you ever stop to think when you are showering her with praise that Reshmi was not an isolated incident and that Kamla was too busy, preoccupied, with similar-type shenanigans – gender notwithstanding – letting a 29-12 majority slip out of her hand because, well, politics sure makes strange bedfellows, and the wrong platform candidates?
You now have to choose between your “best PM” chant and the “worst” party leader factoid in our history. Are you satisfied to be led by Kamla to another defeat for that’s where we are headed? This is the question sycophants you must answer.
