New Delhi, October 25: Quick-tweeter Shashi Tharoor was a top trend for wishing a Rishi Sunak in India. His senior colleague in Congress P Chidambaram too was roasted for wishing a Kamala Harris feat in India.

Congress communication department head Jairam Ramesh gave a quick lesson to his brain-fogged colleagues. Ramesh counted a number of political luminaries from within the ranks of Congress who occupied top posts in the country.

Political leaders from the minority community in India have occupied the posts of President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India, Chief Ministers, Chief Election Commissioner and so on. There would hardly be any post that has not seen a person from the religious minority group in the high offices of the country. Manmohan Singh just recently had been India’s PM for 10 years in whose Cabinet both Chidambaram and Tharoor served as ministers. Yet, Tharoor and Chidambaram, who claim to have memories of elephants, tripped on facts to face the ridicule from with their party.

Tharoor and Chidambaram have also sought to ridicule Sunak by linking his ascension to the post of the British Prime Minister, stooping in their thoughts to the social media thinkers, whose world views end with hashtags. In hindsight, it appears that Congress was right to ensure that Tharoor was not taken seriously when he contested for the post of the president of the party. Age is definitely catching up with Chidambaram, for his mental lapses couldn’t be justified since he had been India’s Home and Finance Minister.

Hallucinations on the part of Chidambaram and Tharoor, however, represent the ideological bankruptcy in the Opposition ranks, who rush to clutch on slightest of opportunities to hit at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party on the plank of the Hindu majoritarianism. This is too tricky a wicket for the likes of Tharoor and Chidambaram to bat on, and could be left for sure-footed within Congress.

Sunak built on his credentials by dealing with the economic challenges in the UK in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. He is young, and is riding the hope of the British people that he would help the country come unscathed by the rampaging inflation, which is pushing scores of the people in debt and default. Sunak is not the British Prime Minister, because he has an Indian origin and practices the Hindu faith. Sunak could have become the UK PM a few months before if not for the racist British biases against him.
